@bithive My most-used linux trick is to give short aliases to long strings. I have a two letter alias for...
youtube-dl --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 0 --output "~/Downloads/%(title)s.%(ext)s" -a "~/source/video.txt"'
... which downloads all the videos listed in a text file in a directory, converts them to mp3, renames them and puts them in a different directory.
