Extend support for Youtube-DL. It's great and it does exactly what I expect from it.

This is a fork of the well-known downloader program - youtube-dl. Unlike its predecessor, this program works many times faster, has SponsorBlock support and is able to download viedo from even more sites, compared to youtube-dl.

Much faster than the original, and tries to download the better quality (opus and webm) files when you pass a URL without arguments. It has more functions too.

Fixes the problems of slow development in the original "youtube-dl", with addiction to new options like chapter addition with SponsorBlock and Geo-Range Bypass.

Basically youtube-dl but updated, and with more features, youtube-dl's developpement slowed down lately, so this is the good alternative

It's youtube-dl with more features and fixes. According to the creator of the project, it's also much better at grabbing larger playlists. I also use it to get a list of videos in my playlists without downloading the actual videos. Also has great support and is frequently updated!

    It's a very useful GUI with a stack of options that can be saved so you never need to type in long commands again. Batch downloading, numerous VOD/TV services, active development, can use youtube-dl or yt-dlp as backend.
