A new and improved version of spotDL: still the fastest, easiest and most accurate command-line music downloader
- Visual C++ 2019 redistributable (on Windows)
- Python 3.7 or above (added to PATH)
YouTube Music must be available in your country for spotDL to work. This is because we use YouTube Music to filter search results. You can check if YouTube Music is available in your country, by visiting YouTube Music.
Refer to our Installation Guide for more details

pip install spotdl.
On some systems you might have to change

- On Termux
curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spotDL/spotify-downloader/master/scripts/termux.sh | sh
- There is an Arch User Repository (AUR) package for spotDL.
docker build -t spotdl .
Launch container with spotDL parameters (see section below). You need to create mapped volume to access song files
docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/music spotdl download [trackUrl]
If using FFmpeg only for spotDL, you can install FFmpeg to your local directory.
spotdl --download-ffmpeg will download FFmpeg to your spotDL installation directory.
We recommend the above option, but if you want to install FFmpeg system-wide,
- Windows Tutorial

brew install ffmpeg

sudo apt install ffmpegor use your distro's package manager
