Datestamp YouTube Videos

Creating playlists is ok but doesn't work when you're downloading from multiple videos from different channels or individually. I'd like to be able to view my downloads in date order of when they're published on the internet (not when I download them).

A timestamp would be perfect for this - by extracting the publish date and appending it to the filename would help a lot. e.g.:

YYYY-MM-DD - channel name - video name.mp3

an existing browser plugin does this, their documentation can be found at:

Double and treble this. The ability to watch vlogs in order is so import and currently not doing this lets this application down. Please add this

adding the upload-date of the downloaded video: Videotitle_20130730
download-date of the video: Videotitle_up20130730_d20171002


Ideally this would be customizable:

a) add this information at the start or at the end of the videotitle
b) with customizable separator signs ( "_" and/or "-" and/or "space" and/or a short sequence of letters)
c) with different date-layouts (30-07-2013(us), 07-30-2013(eu), 2013-07-30, 20130731, ...).


That would be marvellous!

I would prefer not to have the date/time in the filename as it is stored in the metadata and you have the option to display the date/time and you can also sort the files by date/time.

Can you please sort out the CAPTCHA as it kept coming up as incorrect when I entered the code.

Peter Maddison, which metadata field are you referring to? I couldn't find one that reflected the date of the video's creation/upload to . Whether it be through metadata or the filename itself, there should be a built-in way to sort the videos by creation/upload date.
