It doesnt work, however i managed to install it by using StaSh and running
pip install youtube_dl
I am sure still many good reasons for this lib. I used this lib before. But for all my video content, Apple TV, chromecast(4K) etc... I only ever stream the content. The idea of downloading video is becoming such a foreign concept.
I am not trying to be negative, just the above comes to mind when i read the post.
@Phuket2 It can still be useful for watching video on the go. Cellular bandwidth is still quite expensive in a lot of countries (in Germany, you pay about $10 per GB).
This, or when you're on a connection that is a bit too slow or unreliable for streaming. In that case it's nicer to download a video in the background for a while, so you can watch it uninterrupted afterwards, without having to wait for it to buffer every few minutes.
