Media Downloader

Release date: 
Monday, 16 August, 2010



Mediadownloader (ex GoogleImageDownloader) is an opensource software that lets you search, watch and download items with Google Image and YouTube. Application developed using Qt toolkit.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.
