Lets suppose if i want to dowonload an entire playlist through youtube-dl but i want to choose a different format as well download subtitles for the entire playlist. How do i do it?
You just choose the desired options, declare the playlist to download and every video will have the options applied.
youtube-dl \ --config-location . \ --no-mark-watched \ --format best \ --output '%(upload_date)s_%(channel)s_%(title)s_%(id)s.%(ext)s' \ https://www.youtube.com/playlist/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/videos
