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
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 24 Aug 2021
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.

Having trouble with youtube-dl fork.

Hello. I'm currently trying to download some Niconico videos that will be deleted at the end of this month, using this fork of youtube-dl. However, when I try to run a command, I get this error:
Bilibili Playlist Downloading

Bilibili doesn't have playlists afaik. Do you mean channels/anthologies? If so, both animelover1984/youtube-dl and yt-dlp can download them

Hello there, I have something to ask for those who use tidal-dl on termux to download hi-res music. I was new to this and i followed every command on downloading tidal-dl, but whenever I've got in "pip3 install --upgrade tidal-dl" it always ended up like this, I'm so tired try and tried it again.

here at Spotdl
Kaise karte hain download?
1 project | reddit.com/r/SaimanSays | 18 Oct 2021
But NewPipe se sab download karna time consuming hai, uske liye SpotDL(dependencies listed on the GitHub page) use karle, woh tool khud YT se audio download kardega, you just have to copy paste the Spotify link(do note ki SpotDL kuch gaano ke galti se dusre versions/covers download kar dega, so listen to all downloaded files first before backing them up).

I'd also like to note that if you are using free accounts, spotDL may be a better option, YouTube Music opus-128k tracks have pretty much the same (if not better) quality as Spotify's vorbis-160k tracks.

Don't you think Spotify ads are getting more annoying and corny day by day?
9 projects | reddit.com/r/india | 21 Jul 2021
This is the reason I've stopped using Spotify completely from last month, the ads were getting on my nerves and other music streaming services have been even worse in my experience. I used spotDL tool from GitHub on my PC to download my libraries, and now I listen to my music offline in peace(like how basically everyone used to do till a few years ago). If I want to listen to new music, I use NewPipe (free and open source YouTube app, doesn't require Google account, ad free and doesn't use YT APIs) on my Android phone and FreeTube(Similar to NewPipe but for Windows, macOS and Linux) on my PC.
