Often I need a quick way to download YouTube videos, in either video or audio formats. And a lot of times, I don’t feel like loading up a program or opening the command line. So instead, I created a Web app, that takes all the guest work out of it. Oh, and by the way, it converts videos, audio, and images too. Meet phpTube.

 

What Is It?

phpTube lets you download YouTube videos in popular video formats as well as allowing you to download video and audio only versions of said videos.

In addition, phpTube lets you upload and convert videos, audio, and images into popular formats.

 

How Was It Built?

Simple. I just used YouTube-DL and FFmpeg libraries in collaboration with PHP and some Sass.

 

Can I Use It?

phpTube was a weekend project I worked on and didn’t really prepare for a big public release. Instead, it’s up on GitHub for anyone to download and put on their own server.
