[A commercial version of this script is also available!! It includes many more features than the free version, and it's available for sale now at http://www.codingforums.com/showpost.php?p=1217444&postcount=321.]
This is one of a 3-part series of videos documenting how to install my free YouTube-to-Mp3 converter software, available here: http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=205066. I start with only a fresh installation of Ubuntu 12.04, and then proceed to install all required packages and dependencies required for the script to run. Finally, I install and configure the script, and I demonstrate its functionality.
Note: I chose Ubuntu 12.04 because I am most familiar with it, and it is arguably the easiest Linux version to configure for my software.
FYI - This installation guide overlaps installation/configuration steps required for the paid-for version of my software as well. So, you can also use these videos as a general guide for installing/configuring the paid-for version.
I hope this helps those of you who are new to Linux, or those uncomfortable configuring the server and installing the software without some kind of guide/tutorial.
