Saving a YouTube Video transcript to a text file

When watching YouTube video lectures, I often wish to save the dialog to a text file that I can search. You can obtain a text transcript of the audio for a YouTube video lecture by clicking on the three dots to the right of "Share", which will give you the option to "Open transcript." When you choose that option, you will then see a transcript displayed to the right of the video. But when you copy that text to a text editor, you may see the dialog on separate lines from the accompanying timestamps. You can put each line of dialog on the same line as its timestamp using the regular expression 1,$ s/\(:\d\d\)\n/\1 / within the vi or vim text editors.

Python script to download YouTube videos on Mac OS X

If you wish to download a YouTube video to store locally on your computer, you can do so on a Mac OS X system, and Linux systems, also, using youtuble-dl, a Python script. You can also download a Microsoft Windows exe file from the youtube-dl Download Page. With youtube-dl, you can download videos from YouTube and other sites from a command-line interface (CLI).

For a Mac OS X system, you can obtain the script using the curl utility that is provided with the operating system. You can also use curl on a Linux system, if you have it installed on that system. Alternatively, you can use wget, which isn't provided with the OS X system, but which you may have on a Linux system, if you don't have curl available. To obtain the youtube-dl script using curl on a Mac OS X system, you can open a Terminal window and issue the command sudo curl -L -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl. That will download the script and place it in the /usr/local/bin directory.
