    Besides the functions of choosing the audio format and quality, does it have any advantage over jdownloader?

      I would say not to run on Java, apart from the simplicity.

    The instructions you give do not work well for 64-bit linix. In the second instruction, to install, you have to put: sudo dpkg -i YouTubeToMP3.amd64.deb

    instead of: sudo dpkg -i YouTubeToMP3.i386.deb

    Thank you very much, it is going great on Linux Mint 18.3. It gave a dependency problem with some libraries but it was easily corrected with the typical one:

    $ sudo apt-get -f install
