How to download playlist using
youtube-dl from start certain number to an upper limit?
I tried to use in the code:
youtube-dl -o '~/Documents/%(playlist)s/%(chapter_number)s - %(chapter)s/%(playlist_index)s - %(title)s.%(ext)s' URL
and it stopped in the middle. I want to restart the process from the index
ith numbered video, and not have it start over from the beginning.
youtube-dl --help, contains:
Video Selection: --playlist-start NUMBER Playlist video to start at (default is 1) --playlist-end NUMBER Playlist video to end at (default is last) --playlist-items ITEM_SPEC Playlist video items to download. Specify indices of the videos in the playlist separated by commas like: "--playlist-items 1,2,5,8" if you want to download videos indexed 1, 2, 5, 8 in the playlist. You can specify range: "--playlist-items 1-3,7,10-13", it will download the videos at index 1, 2, 3, 7, 10, 11, 12 and 13.
Thus, the option
--playlist-start NUMBER should help you to start the playlist in the middle, specified by
I have total 135 videos in my playlist. I have successfully downloaded 38 of them. So I manually used this command.

youtube-dl -f best <playlist link> --playlist-start 15
-f best selects the best video formats. use youtube-dl –help for more options
