musidl

musidl is a simple command-line utility written in Bash for downloading music from YouTube with id3 tags (used by media players to display the artist, album, etc.). It is licensed under the GNU GPLv3.

musidl requires yt-dlp to get information about and download the audio from videos, jq to process JSON, and id3v2 to add id3 tags.
