you-get is a command-line utility and a library for downloading multimedia content from various websites, such as YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and many others. It supports a wide range of video and audio formats, and can be used to download both live streams and on-demand videos. The library is written in Python and can be easily integrated into other Python projects.

Just like Youtube-dl, you-get contains open-source scrapers for hundreds of websites and is a great tool to learn about web scraping and popular web scraping techniques.

Essence is a simple PHP library to extract media information from websites, like youtube videos, twitter statuses or blog articles.
