Maybe stupid comment (I'm new to arch) but I comment anyway...

1) It is said at the comments, that this will work with community youtube-dl if yle-dl knows where to look at it. So could this be built against that community youtube-dl instead? Especially because python2-youtube-dl can't be installed? (complains about youtube-dl-2016.07.03.tar.gz public key and as a result makepkg was unable to build python2-youtube-dl)

2) Could this be updated to version 2.13 + get updates more frequently please?

Could you please update this to 2.12?

With community/youtube-dl it does work if yle-dl just knows to look for "youtube_dl" in /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/. I am not a programmer so I don't know why it works with python2 and whether it is good practice to sys.path.insert that directory

If it doesn't work without python2-youtube-dl it should be depedency, not optional depedency. It also seems very strange depedency if it doesn't exist.

I don't think it can even be submitted to AUR, because youtube-dl is already in [community] and it looks like the same thing even if it's installation doesn't help anything.

PS. still broken 2.8.1-2 which was just offered as upgrade.

Someone could have mentioned that python2-youtube-dl had not been
uploaded to the new AUR, of course it won't work if you don't have the
dependency installed.

Still (version 2.8.1-2) the message "Failed to import youtube_dl" shows up.

I don't have the optional dependency "python2-youtube-dl" installed because it does not exist in the repos or AUR.

I would like a working version too.

The old YLE Areena (v3) is still available and the current yle-dl version works with that (using rtmpdump) but so far hasn't worked with the new Areena.

I am also on the latest version and it's not working for me either.

Failed to import youtube_dl

Installing php-mcrypt (potentially missing depedency in PKGBUILD?) and youtube-dl changed nothing.

I updated the yle-dl for latest 2.8.1-1 version and it doesn't work at all. There is an error message: Failed to import youtube_dl.

Also the rtmp-backend is broken, when I trying use the option --protocol rtmp, I get following error message: The following protocols are not supported on this source: rtmp
