Examples

Login

Before you can do something, you have to login first.

This can be performed via crunchyroll account email and password

$ crunchy login [email protected] password

or via session id

$ crunchy login --session-id 8e9gs135defhga790dvrf2i0eris8gts

Download

With the cli you can download single videos or entire series.

By default the cli tries to download the episode with your system language as audio. If no streams with your system language are available, the video will be downloaded with japanese audio and hardsubbed subtitles in your system language. If your system language is not supported, an error message will be displayed and en-US (american english) will be chosen as language.

$ crunchy download https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx/episode-1-alone-and-lonesome-759575

With -r best the video(s) will have the best available resolution (mostly 1920×1080 / Full HD).

$ crunchy download -r best https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx/episode-1-alone-and-lonesome-759575

The file is by default saved as a .ts (mpeg transport stream) file. .ts files may can’t be played or are looking very weird (it depends on the video player you are using). With the -o flag, you can change the name (and file ending) of the output file. So if you want to save it as, for example, mp4 file, just name it whatever.mp4. You need ffmpeg to store the video in other file formats.

$ crunchy download -o "daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarling.ts" https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx/episode-1-alone-and-lonesome-759575

With the --audio flag you can specify which audio the video should have and with --subtitle which subtitle it should have. Type crunchy help download to see all available locales.

$ crunchy download --audio ja-JP --subtitle de-DE https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx
Flags
  • --audio » forces audio of the video(s)

  • --subtitle » forces subtitle of the video(s)

  • --no-hardsub » forces that the subtitles are stored as a separate file and are not directly embedded into the video

  • -d, --directory » directory to download the video(s) to

  • -o, --output » name of the output file

  • -r, --resolution » the resolution of the video(s). best for best resolution, worst for worst

  • --alternative-progress » shows an alternative, not so user-friendly progress instead of the progress bar

Help

  • General help
  • Login help
  • Download help

Global flags

These flags you can use across every sub-command

  • -q, --quiet » disables all output

  • -v, --verbote » shows additional debug output

  • --color » adds color to the output (works only on not windows systems)

  • -p, --proxy » use a proxy to hide your ip / redirect your traffic

  • -l, --locale » the language to display video specific things like the title. default is your system language

Examples

func main() {
    // login with credentials 
    crunchy, err := crunchyroll.LoginWithCredentials("[email protected]", "password", crunchyroll.US, http.DefaultClient)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // finds a series or movie by a crunchyroll link
    video, err := crunchy.FindVideo("https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx")
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    series := video.(*crunchyroll.Series)
    seasons, err := series.Seasons()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Found %d seasons for series %sn", len(seasons), series.Title)

    // search `Darling` and return 20 results
    series, movies, err := crunchy.Search("Darling", 20)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Found %d series and %d movies for query `Darling`n", len(series), len(movies))
}
func main() {
    crunchy, err := crunchyroll.LoginWithSessionID("8e9gs135defhga790dvrf2i0eris8gts", crunchyroll.US, http.DefaultClient)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // returns an episode slice with all episodes which are matching the given url.
    // the episodes in the returning slice differs from the underlying streams, but are all pointing to the first ditf episode
    episodes, err := crunchy.FindEpisode("https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx/episode-1-alone-and-lonesome-759575")
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Found %d episodesn", len(episodes))
}

Structure

Because of the apis structure, it can lead very fast much redundant code for simple tasks, like getting all episodes with japanese audio and german subtitle. For this case and some other, the api has a utility called Structure in its utils.

func main() {
    crunchy, err := crunchyroll.LoginWithCredentials("[email protected]", "password", crunchyroll.US, http.DefaultClient)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // search `Darling` and return 20 results (series and movies) or less
    series, movies, err := crunchy.Search("Darling", 20)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Found %d series and %d movies for search query `Darling`n", len(series), len(movies))

    seasons, err := series[0].Seasons()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // in the crunchyroll.utils package, you find some structs which can be used to simplify tasks.
    // you can recursively search all underlying content
    seriesStructure := utils.NewSeasonStructure(seasons)

    // this returns every format of all the above given seasons
    formats, err := seriesStructure.Formats()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Found %d formatsn", len(formats))

    filteredFormats, err := seriesStructure.FilterFormatsByLocales(crunchyroll.JP, crunchyroll.DE, true)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Found %d formats with japanese audio and hardsubbed german subtitlesn", len(filteredFormats))

    // reverse sorts the formats after their resolution by calling a sort type which is also defined in the api utils
    // and stores the format with the highest resolution in a variable
    sort.Sort(sort.Reverse(utils.FormatsByResolution(filteredFormats)))
    format := formats[0]
    // get the episode from which the format is a child
    episode, err := seriesStructure.FilterEpisodeByFormat(format)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    file, err := os.Create(fmt.Sprintf("%s.ts", episode.Title))
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // download the format to the file
    if err := format.Download(file, nil); err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Printf("Downloaded %s with %s resolution and %.2f fps as %sn", episode.Title, format.Video.Resolution, format.Video.FPS, file.Name())

    // for more useful structure function just let your IDE's autocomplete make its thing
}

As you can see in the example above, most of the crunchyroll.utils Structure functions are returning errors. There is a build-in functionality with are avoiding causing the most errors and let you safely ignore them as well. Note that errors still can appear

func main() {
    crunchy, err := crunchyroll.LoginWithCredentials("[email protected]", "password", crunchyroll.US, http.DefaultClient)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    foundEpisodes, err := crunchy.FindEpisode("https://www.crunchyroll.com/darling-in-the-franxx/episode-1-alone-and-lonesome-759575")
    if err != nil {
    	panic(err)
    }
    episodeStructure := utils.NewEpisodeStructure(foundEpisodes)

    // this function recursively calls all api endpoints, receives everything and stores it in memory,
    // so that after executing this, no more request to the crunchyroll server has to be made.
    // note that it could cause much network load while running this method.
    //
    // you should check the InitAllState before, because InitAll could have been already called or
    // another function has the initialization as side effect and re-initializing everything
    // will change every pointer in the struct which can cause massive problems afterwards. 
    if !episodeStructure.InitAllState() {
        if err := episodeStructure.InitAll(); err != nil {
            panic(err)
        }
    }

    formats, _ := episodeStructure.Formats()
    streams, _ := episodeStructure.Streams()
    episodes, _ := episodeStructure.Episodes()
    fmt.Printf("Initialized %d formats, %d streams and %d episodesn", len(formats), len(streams), len(episodes))
}

Tests

You can also run test to see if the api works correctly. Before doing this, make sure to either set your crunchyroll email and password or sessions as environment variable. The email variable has to be named EMAIL and the password variable PASSWORD. If you want to use your session id, the variable must be named SESSION_ID.

You can run the test via make

or via go directly
