Temporary files

Hi everyone.
I want to download videos from youtube and I looked for the way I had to find them when I watch on the site in temporary files in /tmp file but it didn't find and in anyother on there.

usr/lib/tmp.d
var/run
var/spool
var/log/journal
run/shm
var/cache/man
etc
(This files are what on internet say can I find the temporary files)

Could anybody where I can found that videos in temporary files of Q4OS? Or the way to download without install any app on it. Thank you in advance.

Re: Temporary files

Whether temporary downloaded files exist and where they are stored depends on how you try to download the files. Please explain how you try to proceed.

Re: Temporary files

Hi Hchiper, thank you to contact with me.

When I watch a YouTube video it loads in cache. In Fedora I would find that video in the /tmp folder and copy it to the desktop and rewrite it to .flv. It's a way to download a video without installing an application.
Thank you.

Re: Temporary files

I happen to watch some videos using firefox as browser, but I was never able to find where it stores a temporary file with the video. When I need to get a video, I use yt-dlp (available on github). No install, just a binary to save and use.

Re: Temporary files

WOW!!!!!
Wonderfull!!!! I never deside to use yt-dlp to download videos from YouTube and I just installed and I did it and I used ffmpeg to change to .mp3 file and compress it. Too fast on Q4OS with the laptop with less resources.

Thank you so much for the help HChiper.
