Ubuntu – How to pause/resume download in youtube video


I have downloaded youtube videos using youtube-dl. But due to network problem or other problem sometimes I am not able to download video completely. Later, I need to download that video from beginning.

Is there any way to pause and resume download? I use both Chromium and Mozilla.

You can do that with -c option. For instance, if you previously started a download using:

youtube-dl <some_youtube_URL>

You may, if it was stopped or interrupted, resume that download later with:

youtube-dl -c <some_youtube_URL>
