yt-dlp : How can I have separate file format for playlists and single videos


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Eir Nym

I have an urls file where I store all links I want to download. I download from it using yt-dlp -a urls.

For playlists I’d like to put videos into a folder, like it’s shown in documentation examples, while for single videos I’d like to keep the separate file format though.

How can I do it with a single configuration file? If it’s not possible with a single configuration file, I’d want to have other options in a single common place.

Note: In documentation I saw TYPES: in --output, but I don’t know how to use it and if it’s applicable to my case.
