Downloading video from Youtube using JAVA #1
In The Name OF Allah
Al-Salam Alekum

[Image: 10-Ways-to-Learn-Java-in-Just-a-Couple-of-Weeks.jpg]

Guys today am going to teach you How to download Youtubes video using Java but you can make your own tool with any other language the tutorial purpose is to understand the method used to download videos.

For any video we are getting its ID in ex. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7bqAsxee4I The ID = B7bqAsxee4I
What to do next is getting this Video info, Youtube provide us a way to get any video info, Which contain URLs we can download videos from: https://www.youtube.com/get_video_info?&video_id=ID_Here

We will fetch our video info by visiting this URL: https://www.youtube.com/get_video_info?&...7bqAsxee4I
You will download a file called get_video_info Basically we will search for a URL, you may find more than a URL which used for different Qualities of the Video.

[Image: Screenshot-7.png]

In this file we will search for a wrod: "url_encoded_fmt_stream_map" What come after it, You should see URLs start with &url= or url=
This file had been encoded with URL Encoding for batter understanding it and making it easier to search for URL even IF we used a tool it is somewhat hard to get the URL because they had been encoded. We will decode it Two times using any decoding method for example this websites: https://www.urldecoder.org/

[Image: Screenshot-9.png]

You can see the URL batter now, IF we visit any of these URLs we are getting the video and using an Open stream in any Programming language we can download the Video. The URL start from url= to &tag Some of videos its URL differ so may need another way of Parsing.

Let us download this video using a simple Java tool:
Source:
PHP Code:
package youtubedownloader;

import java.io.BufferedInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;


/**
 *
 * @author Mr.Kurd
 */
public class downloading {

    
/**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    
private static URL downloadURL;
    
    public static 
void main(String[] args) {
        try {  
            
downloadURL = new URL("URL Here");
        } catch (
MalformedURLException ex) {
            
Logger.getLogger(downloading.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVEREnullex);
        }
        
long length;  
        
boolean completed false;  
        
int count 0;  
        try (
BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(downloadURL.openStream()); FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("Kurdy.mp4")) {  
            
length downloadURL.openConnection().getContentLength();  
            
int i 0;  
            final 
byte[] data = new byte[1024];  
            while ((
count bis.read(data)) != -1) {  
                    
+= count;  
                    
fos.write(data0count);  
                    }                          
            } catch (
IOException ex) {}                                             
    }


Replace your Download link with URL HERE in side the source and run it, Video Downloaded:
[Image: Screenshot-11.png]

I think you got the idea, Now what our program will do to download video is auto doing steps above.
  • Getting the Video ID.
  • Downloading get_video_info.
  • Parsing the info file till getting the URL.
  • Open stream downloading the video from the URL.
