    Get names of playlists

    hi friends,

    i am running fedora 27 workstation. i want to save names/titles of all the playlists and the names/titles of all the videos in each of the playlists on a YouTube page to a text file. is it possible? is there a command to do so?

    For example I like this channel, which has many playlists with many videos in each of them.

    https://www.youtube.com/user/simonse...ning/playlists

    thanks.

    Re: Get names of playlists

    I don't believe there exists command like that. Though I'm new to linux, so I might be wrong. Depending what kind of list you need and for what purpose and how many playlists you need and how fast, you could just
    1. Click playlist on wanted site
    2. Select all text on page and copy to file
    3. Make script that picks up needed info for you

    Or maybe you could do it easier with javascript if you know how to use it effectively. Or maybe there already is script which you can use with TamperMonkey extension.
    Probably not the answer you were looking for, but your question is kind of vague so I decided to answer with it anyway
