Playlist organizer for m3u files with YouTube URLs.

What the program is for?

If you use a video player (i.e. SMplayer) which can open YouTube streams and keep your videos you wanna watch in a playlist you probably has something like this:


We are missing something here. The player doesn't fetch the video titles for us. Also the durations are 00:00 until you actually start playng the video.

YTitler can help you with this:


That looks much better. You get the channel name, release date, video title and video duration.

How to use the program?

ytitler -f my_playlist.m3u


The URLs are fetched from the given file and processed asynchronously in bulks of 10. You also get a nice progress bar so you know how it's going.

For more options you can simply type in ytitler --help.

What about next features.

Sure they are in progress. You can check the ticket list.

Why do you even watch YouTube videos in a desktop player?

Because YouTube playlist management sucks. And because by watching a video in a player you get rid of ads. Yes, no ads at all.

Besides that I can filter, shuffle and use another features of my desktop player (in my case it's SMplayer). Also I can share/sync the playlist between my devices. VLC player on mobiles is the solution. And again, no ads even on mobile.

Can I contribute or vote for new features?

Absolutely! Just open up new merge request or issue.
