Notes: I'm not using vpns. I'm using a special version of ytdl designed for niconico. It has not been updated in over a year: https://github.com/animelover1984/youtube-dl
Youtube video analysis with youtube_dl inconsistent, sometimes giving errors
4 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 15 Sep 2021
You might get more consistent results with a fork, most of which have already fixed this issue. Some popular ones are yt-dlp/yt-dlp, blackjack4494/youtube-dlc and animelover1984/youtube-dl. Please note though these might not be drop-in replacements
youtube-dl is (possibly) dead

Months before the lawsuit, there were plenty of people complaining that youtube-dl's maintainers closed issues without any reason given. Here is one illuminating example:
And there is also an entire fork that fixes the support for just a single provider, Niconico, because the maintainers ignored its issues.
A quote from its README:
All code in this project is licensed solely with the condition that any portion of it is not permitted to be used in the main youtube-dl fork, either directly or indirectly. It is also not permitted to be used in any project that contains contributions from either remitamine or dstftw.
It seems that youtube-dl was a dysfunctionally managed project at the time of the lawsuit, and happened to ride out on the good PR for a couple of months, before returning to stagnation once again.
To me it sounds like a plugin system would have prevented centralization and the need for forks, but would have made distribution harder for average users.
