Export download meta data to file for building catalogue / library. e.g. filename, filesize, URL, playlength, format etc.

EXPORT download information to build a library catalogue database, including category, using standard methodologies. e.g. CSV

I'm downloading a channel with 1200 videos... It would be nice to be able to set criteria to order or filter the list of videos of the channel... e.g. I may like to download only the videos that have a title beginning with "A", or only the videos that were uploaded in a specific period of time (let's say in the last couple of months), or only the videos that have a particular duration (let's say between 2 and 10 minutes), or only the videos that have been visualized at a certain rate since their upload date (let's say 1000 visualizations per month), or other criteria allowed by the information available in Youtube, or or a combination of all the previous...

Ditto - There is already some such for playlists, which may export an m3u playlist file. Haven't tried it; don't know what data is exported.

But it should be pretty easy to export a .csv file with that info, source being the list of currently racked-up downloads. like exporting the list.

And to support this further, a setting, maybe even a button, to direct 4k to just produce these files, without necessarily doing the download, would be an immense help to catalogers.

Thanks, someone, somewhere, for a great product. I'll buy it again soon.

In this context: being able to use meta data in a file name pattern like this one (from your competition)
"[published_date:YYYY-MM-DD] [author] - [title].[extension]"
would be also great.
