youtube-dl YouTube Downloader is broken

February 20, 2023 — BarryK

I received an email from Smithy letting me know about this, so passing on the information.

I updated 'youtube-dl' python script before releasing Easy 4.99, just assumed it would be OK. But it isn't. There are issues posted here:

Looks like we need to wait for a fixed release. YouTube will be delighted; they keep moving the goal post to try and thwart the downloaders, youtube-dl gets updated, and the game goes on.

EDIT 2023-02-23:
Fixed, see later post:
