Youtube-dl integration

What do people think about making a plugin that uses youtube-dl in order to download using the youtube rss feed feature? This would allow one to download videos from playlists and new videos as they are released.

The primary issue that I’m running into Is that I can’t bury the HTML error upon RSS input.

youtube-dl config already can track what it has already downloaded. once you set that up, just schedule it to run periodically depending on the channel and grab the latest few videos (depending how often there are new videos). no flexget needed.

Yeah but it can’t check it against TVDB or IMDB and it can’t rename the youtube video so it’ll match those services.

I’m actually trying to do this myself to download PBS News Hour from Youtube. I found a way to use the bash script but it’s hard to get right.
