youtube-dl taken down from GitHub. Some maintainers are in the comments of this discussing it: github.com/github/dmca/pull/81

where's the fork on sourcehut and/or codeberg and/or anywhere else besides fucking Microsoft GitHub?

I wonder if there is value in more informative permission prompts, i.e. in mobile OSes or Flatpak portals. Instead of just, “This app wants access to your contacts” or “this app wants your location,” give an actual example in the permission prompt! Better show the implications.

Youtube-dl has been suspended on GH because the RIAA sent a DMCA takedown.

Fuck the RIAA. And fuck the broken and abused bullshit of music copyright law.

@gargron The latest release files including source code are still on PyPI, recommend everyone downloads a copy and stashes it somewhere for a while: pypi.org/project/youtube_dl/#f
