youtube-dl downloads various formats

3760 views youtube

I'm trying to download a playlist from youtube and the songs are either downloaded in webm-format or m4a format. What I wanted was mp3. What am I doing wrong?

This is the command line i used:

youtube-dl -i --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 -o "%(title)s.%(ext)s"\?list\=PLYhvw_t8ea5FqXXy2w_cduTGbcXwledsP
