Youtube-dl taken downanon406898

Youtube-dl github repository disabled due to a "DMCA takedown" request.


One more reason to stop hosting your code on Micro$haft.

They should put it on chinese github tbh

Why would anyone use youtube-dl anyway? There's literally websites that download video after you paste the link

anon77e38610/24/2020 (Sat) 14:55:296633Mod
Fuck you.

- Finding a reliable one that stays up for long is a challenge.
- Most of them are riddled with ads.
- Not all video resolutions are available on them because some formats(especially 1080p & above) stream the audio separately, and would need to be merged after downloading.
- If any website allows you to download the above formats, it's doing the merging server side. And there's a very high chance that server's using youtube-dl.

Besides, youtube-dl is 10x faster than any website.

Micropenis is a bad place to host code, agreed, but are there are any gitlab/gitea instances that don't care about DMCA takedowns?
Codeberg still has Freezer and Deemix so that might be one, I guess.

Update: This is getting lots of attention.

People are even breaking GitHub over this: https://github.com/github/dmca/tree/416da574ec0df3388f652e44f7fe71b1e3a4701f

What about good old sourceforge?

Google is using bruteforce to kill things like youtubedl and newpipe. Its just matter of time they push even harsher measures to combat. Fuck you google eat dick. Cheap tactics coming from a mega corp and anyways how many people used those softwares in first place.

>scripting is only for Linux
Ever heard about batch scripting, powershell??

Another update: They put it back


I still don't trust MS, if it wasn't for EFF, and all the backlash, youtube-dl would've been gone for good.
