Dependencies Installation

This script can run on multiple Operating Systems. But, the script depends on some external binaries or libs. We need FFmpeg, mkvmerge and Node.js in our paths. There are some old streams on Crunchyroll which only support rtmpe streams, as noted from Issue #9. For this, you need rtmpdump.

You also need mkvmerge.exe in your PATH or Working Directory.

These dependencies are required on ALL the operating systems, ALL!.

1.) Make sure you have Python installed and is present in your system's path.

2.) Grab FFmpeg from this link, Node.js from this link and RTMPDump.

3.) Install FFmpeg and Node.js and place it in the directory of this script, or put them in your system's path.

4.) Browse to the directory of this script and open command prompt/shell in that directory and run this command :

python pip install -r requirements.txt

Installation

After installing and setting up all the dependencies in your Operating System, you're good to go and use this script. The instructions for all the OS would remain same. Download THIS REPOSITORY and put it somewhere in your system. Move over the anime_dl folder.

Windows users, it's better to not place it places where it requires administrator privileges. Good example of places to avoid would be C:\Windows etc.. This goes for both, the Python script and the windows binary file (.exe).

Linux/Debian users make sure that this script is executable.Just run this command, if you run into problem(s) :

chmod +x anime-dl.py

chmod +x __main__.py

and then, execute with this :

./__main__.py

Python Support

This script supports only Pythom 3 currently..

Windows Binary

It is recommended that windows users use this binary to save both, your head and time from installing all the dependencies.

You need to download FFmpeg and Node.js and keep them in the same directory as that of this windows binary file.

If you already have these dependencies, then you can download this binary and start using the script right off the bat : * Binary (x86) : Click Here
