Downloader of videos from YouTube and other sites (youtube-dl fork)

yt-dlp is a small command-line program to download videos from and other sites that don’t provide direct links to the videos served.

yt-dlp is a youtube-dl fork based on the now inactive youtube-dlc. The main focus of this project is adding new features and patches while also keeping up to date with the original project.

yt-dlp allows the user, among other things, to choose a specific video quality to download (if available) or let the program automatically determine the best (or worst) quality video to grab. It supports downloading entire playlists and all videos from a given user.
