youtube-dl is probably the most popular command line YouTube (and not only) downloader for Linux but there's a new tool that tries to do things a bit differently.

mps-youtube is a new tool which, besides being able to download YouTube videos (either the whole video or just the audio), can also search and play YouTube videos and create local playlists, all from the command line.
By default, this is basically a YouTube audio player (and downloader), but you can enable (external) video playback from its options.

The tool uses mplayer for streaming but it can also use mpv, a relatively new mplayer fork.

Update: the tool was initially called 'pms-youtube' but that was quite an unfortunate name :) so the tool was renamed to mps-youtube.


Debian update: mps-youtube is now available in Debian unstable thanks to Zlatan Todoric: mps-youtube so install it using:
For Ubuntu, see below.
1. mps-youtube can be installed using pip. To Install pip (Python3 version) in Ubuntu, use the following command:

2. Then install mps-youtube using pip:
3. You'll also need mplayer, which you can install using the following command:

Later on, if you want to upgrade mps-youtube, use this command:

Arch Linux users can install mps-youtube via AUR.
If you want to use this with MPV, you can install it in Ubuntu (Saucy and Trusty) by using THIS PPA.

Then, to play an item from the search results, enter its number. You can also use combinations, for instance use '1,2,3' to play items 1, 2 and 3, or '1-5' to play items 1 to 5. You can also use 'shuffle' or 'repeat' along with the track numbers, for example 'shuffle 1-4'.

To download an item, use:

for example, to download the 3rd search result, use 'd 3'.
By default, mps-youtube will only play (and download) the audio. To view (and optionally to download) the video instead, use this command:

By default, the tool uses mpv if found and if it's not installed, it uses mplayer. If you want to switch to mplayer, use this commands:
