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.

Are you referring to issues like this?
Cannot Update Youtube-dl
1 project | reddit.com/r/youtubedl | 25 Nov 2021
Yes, yt-dlp is the way, for now. YouTube actively changes over time in ways that require a downloader to have active development to remain functional.
Can you do that?

yt-dlp/youtube-dl go brrrrr
Any good Youtube DL alternative?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/youtubedl | 25 Nov 2021
youtube-dl have not been updated since this summer, and youtube have introduced a throttling which youtube-dl devs have not released a workaround for, but yt-dlp exists and works full speed.

The most useful one for me is Sponskrub which uses Sponsor Block to mark or cut the sponsored sections/reminders from a video. Their Github will give you a better idea.
