How to install ClipGrab on Ubuntu

In this post, I will explain how to download YouTube videos even those that are VEVO in Ubuntu. For downloading YouTube videos you should install an application which is called ClipGrab. This application is GUI based and it is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The good point regarding the application is that, you can easily select your favorite format to save (for instance, .mp4, .mp3, etc.) as well as quality of the video. It is really fast and highly reliable. The main advantage of ClipGrab in comparison with Youtube-dl is the capability of downloading VEVO videos since Youtube-dl cannot do that.

Unfortunately, ClipGrab is not available on Ubuntu repository by default and if you want to install it, the best option is firstly to add its repository to Ubuntu and then install it via apt-get.

For adding, ClipGrab repository please type the following line on console,

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:clipgrab-team/ppa

Then in the next step, update the repository with the below command,

$ sudo apt-get update

And finally, install the application with apt-get,

$ sudo apt-get install clip-grab
