How does it work?

When you paste the link of a particular song it searches for the same song on youtube, downloads it and converts the song to mp3 format. The advantage here is the song is downloaded along with the same album art in the Spotify.

Similarly, For a playlist when you paste the link it will create a .txt file with all the links of the song available on the playlist, then using that links all the songs are downloaded and converted.

Project Implementation

First, download and install the latest version of python and the next step is to download the spot-dl repository from Github.

Download the spot-dl package from the git and install the package using command prompt. Open cmd, type cd and paste the file location of the spod-dl package.

For example,

cd C:\Users\SKYFILABS\Downloads\Spotify-dl\spotify-downloader-master

Then press enter

Now type

pip install spotdl

This will install the Spotify music downloader package and now it is ready to use.

As I previously mentioned, you can download the songs in two ways: one is downloading an individual song and the other is downloading a playlist altogether.

First to download an individual song type the following command and paste the song link -

spotdl --song <song link>

This command will download the song and saves it in the default Music folder.

To convert the song to mp3 format your computer should be installed with FFmpeg. If FFmpeg is not installed in your computer, your song will be saved in .m4a format.

To download the entire playlist, you need to type the following command followed by the playlist link - 

spotdl --playlist <playlist link>

After this command, all the song links in the playlist will be saved in a .txt file and you need to recall the list to download all the songs. With the following command -

spotdl --list <.txt file name>

This a very simple and fun way to download the songs from Spotify with the help of python. If you have any other method to download a song from python let us know in the comment section.
