Question Organization of Mass Youtube Downloads (via path/channelname/videoname)

Hello, I have spent some time browsing the forum looking for a way to organize the files downloaded from a list of Youtube channels but have not yet found anything that suits my needs.

I have a list of links to YT channels. I need a folder for each channel and a subfolder for each video.

Like this:
C:/channel/video_title/video.mpeg

The way I have configured things, JD currently dumps each video and its associated files into one folder with the channel's name. How can configure things so that JD adds the desired subfolders? I'm not sure if I need to use Packageizer or the Youtube plugin to achieve this.

Both:
  1. Go to Settings -> Plugins -> YT -> Scroll all the way down and put the following text into the "Customized Packagename" field:
    Code:
    USERNAME - *USERNAME* - TITLE - *VIDEONAME*
  2. Go to Settings -> Packagizer -> Add a rule with the following conditions:
    Package name -> equals ->
    Code:
    USERNAME - * - TITLE - *
    Downloadurl -> contains ->
    Code:
    youtube.com/
    ...then set:
    Download Directory:
    Code:
    C:\Users\bla\Downloads\00TestDLs\<jd:orgpackagename:1>\<jd:orgpackagename:2>
    --> <jd:orgpackagename:1> = channelname
    --> <jd:orgpackagename:2> = video title
    Screenshot of that rule:

I am not getting the expected results. When I use the link grabber, the file path is highlighted in red. Here are screenshots of the linkgrabber and settings screens.

You're doing it wrong.
1. You're not supposed to alter your general download path e.g. Settings -> General -> Download Folder -> Leave that like before.

2. You're not supposed to put any of the placeholders into your path in the "Add new links" dialog.
Those placeholdes will be autop-filled by the Packagizer rules - they are not available in the "Add links" dialog because at this stage there is no logic that can know what you're going to do/add.
Do not change the download path in that window.

3. When adding links via "Add links" dialog like you're doing, it is important to uncheck the checkbox "Information overwrites packagizer rules" in the bottom left corner!

-psp-
EDIT

It's working just fine here.

I did not alter the general download path. As to the new link dialog, JD is adding the placeholders itself. If I remove the placeholders, it adds them again the next time I add new links. If I remove the placeholders and then continue anyway, JD creates a single subfolder called "USERNAME - random YouTuber - TITLE - random video title."

Sorry for being so slow, I've tried to set up everything exactly as you specified taking care to only change things specific to my machine.

Edit: I found one more error with my config, but fixing it had no effect. I had the packagizer for package name set to "contains" instead of "equals." Again, fixing this had no effect.

That's not possible or in other words:
Your problem has nothing to do with the setup of that rule - it happened because you used the wrong path once yourself.

Probably you've used that path once and JD now auto-sets it as it is your last used path.
Either change that manually (= confirm one valid path once, this will then be used as last default path again) and/or reset the following advanced setting (Attention: this will clear your history of used download paths):
Settings -> Advanced Settings:
Code:
download destination history
--> Click on the yellow arrow in that line, right side to reset your download path history.

@DoomSlayer: Either add the links via Clipboard or when using the add links dialog, make sure to disable the *overwrites packagizer rules* checkbox
If you want we can help/show you via Teamviewer. Contact us via support@jdownloader.org

@pspzockerscene: I did both to no avail, JD is still adding the placeholders to my file path in the add link dialog.

@Jiaz: Pasting directly into JD worked.

Thanks to you both for being so patient and willing to help! There are expensive software packages out there with less user support!

Thanks for your nice feedback!

If you need further help, just ask.
I still don't know why you still get that wrong path so in case you're unable to solve that, consider contacting us again for a Teamviewer session.

clear the history like explained here https://board.jdownloader.org/showpo...87&postcount=6 AND make sure that you don't have placeholder in place in Settings->General->default download folder
