Stop using . It's painfully slow. yt-dlp is a fork that improves and updates the project.

@Linux_in_a_Bit been using yt-dlp for the past few months; I'm loving how its ability to parallelize HLS streams with aria2c makes it double as an internet speed test to saturate my connection when downloading Twitch VODs. The Sponsorblock integration is an absolute lifesaver.

@Linux_in_a_Bit I wish the youtube-dl project would just outright say that they're no longer maintaining the project. They're well aware of the fact that Youtube's been throttling them and many patches have been submitted; their unwillingness to accept said patch is why yt-dlp even exists.

@Linux_in_a_Bit Your target should be all of the other open source projects that require youtubedl.
