Building ClipGrap for FreeBSD
Wednesday, November 5th 2014 in
Clipgrab is a nice, simple utility to download Youtube videos. The version in the FreeBSD ports tree is out of date, and does not work with the current Youtube page interface. The current version can be downloaded at http://clipgrab.org/. Download the Linux sources.
Next, you need to have the QT4 libraries installed. This is simple,
# pkg install qt4
Next, we can configure and compile the code,
% qmake-qt4 -spec freebsd-g++ clipgrab.pro
If you get an error from
g++ not being found, enter the following commands:
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/gcc48 /usr/bin/gcc
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/g++48 /usr/bin/g++
and then run
Next, you will need
ffmpeg to convert files.
# cd /usr/ports/multimedia/ffmpeg
# make config
Ensure that the
LAME option is selected. Then, build the port,
# make install
You should now be able to download Youtube videos!
