YouTube Video Downloader Using Python Tkinter

Youtube Video Downloader

Hello there! Today we are going to build our own YouTube Video Downloader. Interesting right?! So let’s begin!

Introduction to the Project

The YouTube Video downloader aims at downloading any type of video from YouTube in a fast, simple and easy way.

The user has to copy the youtube video URL link which needs to be pasted in the application. Later, the user needs to click on the download button in order to download the video.

1. Import Libraries/Modules

For the current project, we will be importing two modules namely Tkinter and pytube module where the pytube module is used to handle operations related to YouTube.

import tkinter as tk
from pytube import YouTube

2. Creating a Tkinter Window

The code below creates a blank and customized Tkinter application window. By now, you might be familiar with this basic code.

window = tk.Tk()
window.geometry("600x200")
window.config(bg="#EC7063")
window.resizable(width=False,height=False)
window.title('YouTube Video Downloader')

window.mainloop()

3. Adding Widgets to Tkinter Screen

We would be add three simple widgets namely labels, buttons and entry boxes. The code for the same is shown below with the added lines added for you.

window = tk.Tk()
window.geometry("600x200")
window.config(bg="#EC7063")
window.resizable(width=False,height=False)
window.title('YouTube Video Downloader')

link = tk.StringVar()

tk.Label(window,text = '                   Youtube Video Downloader                    ', font ='arial 20 bold',fg="White",bg="Black").pack()
tk.Label(window, text = 'Paste Your YouTube Link Here:', font = 'arial 20 bold',fg="Black",bg="#EC7063").place(x= 5 , y = 60)

link_enter = tk.Entry(window, width = 53,textvariable = link,font = 'arial 15 bold',bg="lightgreen").place(x = 5, y = 100)

tk.Button(window,text = 'DOWNLOAD VIDEO', font = 'arial 15 bold' ,fg="white",bg = 'black', padx = 2,command=Download_Video).place(x=385 ,y = 140)

window.mainloop()

The final design of the application is displayed below.

4. Creating Function for Download Video Button

Now for the Download button to work, we need to define a Download_Video function and link the function with the button using command property in the Button declaration. The code for the function is shown below:

def Download_Video():     
    url =YouTube(str(link.get()))
    video = url.streams.first()
    video.download()
    tk.Label(window, text = 'Your Video is downloaded!', font = 'arial 15',fg="White",bg="#EC7063").place(x= 10 , y = 140)  

Firstly with the help of get function we would extract the link from the entry box. Then with the help of the YouTube function the url is checked on the youtube.

And finally, using the streams.first function video is extracted from YouTube and is later downloaded using the download function.

After the download is completed and is a success a new label is added on the screen which says Your Video is downloaded!.

Complete Code for YouTube Video Downloader in Tkinter

The complete code is shown below.

import tkinter as tk
from pytube import YouTube


def Download_Video():     
    url =YouTube(str(link.get()))
    video = url.streams.first()
    video.download()
    tk.Label(window, text = 'Your Video is downloaded!', font = 'arial 15',fg="White",bg="#EC7063").place(x= 10 , y = 140)  

window = tk.Tk()
window.geometry("600x200")
window.config(bg="#EC7063")
window.resizable(width=False,height=False)
window.title('YouTube Video Downloader')

link = tk.StringVar()
tk.Label(window,text = '                   Youtube Video Downloader                    ', font ='arial 20 bold',fg="White",bg="Black").pack()
tk.Label(window, text = 'Paste Your YouTube Link Here:', font = 'arial 20 bold',fg="Black",bg="#EC7063").place(x= 5 , y = 60)
link_enter = tk.Entry(window, width = 53,textvariable = link,font = 'arial 15 bold',bg="lightgreen").place(x = 5, y = 100)
tk.Button(window,text = 'DOWNLOAD VIDEO', font = 'arial 15 bold' ,fg="white",bg = 'black', padx = 2,command=Download_Video).place(x=385 ,y = 140)

window.mainloop()
