I have trouble getting this to work :(

See original GitHub issue

I remember this working for me before, but now it just refuses to work.

I install all the libraries with:

python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt

and it works except this warning:

 WARNING: The script f2py.exe is installed in 'C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Packages\PythonSoftwareFoundation.Python.3.7_qbz5n2kfra8p0\LocalCache\local-packages\Python37\Scripts' which is not on PATH.
  Consider adding this directory to PATH or, if you prefer to suppress this warning, use --no-warn-script-location.
  WARNING: The script pytube.exe is installed in 'C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Packages\PythonSoftwareFoundation.Python.3.7_qbz5n2kfra8p0\LocalCache\local-packages\Python37\Scripts' which is not on PATH.

and when I try to run the program:

python3 -h

It gives me this

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 9, in <module>
    from pytube import YouTube
  File "C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Packages\PythonSoftwareFoundation.Python.3.7_qbz5n2kfra8p0\LocalCache\local-packages\Python37\site-packages\pytube\", line 16, in <module>

Thanks in advance

Did you just type python as the second command or did you write python3 -h? python and python3 could be different versions. As you installed the requirements with python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt they would not be installed for your python which is probably just version 2.7. You would probably get a similar ImportError

The next thing is: I just assumed, that the error tells you to add it to your PYTHONPATH but looking at it again it clearly says PATH variable. Maybe try:

C:\>set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Packages\PythonSoftwareFoundation.Python.3.7_qbz5n2kfra8p0\LocalCache\local-packages\Python37\Scripts
C:\>python3 -h

Uhm so i got it to work… I just commented ou the line: #from pytube import YouTube

And it does fully work

on an unrelated note, I tried to use this program with a long video, and eventually, it gave me a memory error while it was saying [number] time-altered frames saved. any idea how to maybe split videos into smaller 15min chunks so it can prosses them? Are there any alternatives to this tool that allow for longer videos?

hahhh, I got the solution! run pip install pytube3 --upgrade I think the pytube is deprecated, only the pytube3 is in development. so the requirement.txt should update the pytube into pytube3
