@LinuxLoverForeve Don't see any way to verify if that repository is official or not?

I'm currently taking the situation one day at a time and seeing what happens until I'm willing to even entertain the idea of using an unofficial mirror. Everyone is free to use the PKGBUILD with their preferred mirror for it until then with their own risk but I would just suggest using youtube-dl from the repos.

Broken because github got a DMCA takedown request.

It looks like you can download the source directly from youtube-dl's website: https://yt-dl.org/download.html

@LinuxLoverForever From what I can tell Jack is incorrectly calling it official, has no involvement with the project and did not make the gitlab backup either. To me it seems kind of sketchy Youri uploaded the gitlab backup as "ytdl-org" with no involvement with the project either from what I can tell, but at least has edited the description now to say "I'll wait to see what happens with the GitHub repository and the current maintainer before I do anything with this clone."

@disastro

I hear you. I wouldn't want to change it to some random mirror either. I found out about it from here https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/software/youtube-dl-removed-from-github-after-riaa-dmca-notice/ which leads to https://twitter.com/jarbus_/status/1319731566709477376 which leads to that mirror because Jack posted that repo so I assumed he was the original creator of the repo but I could be wrong.

Hi,

I had some free time this morning so I hacked away at this for a couple of hours. Patches I put together:

https://pastebin.com/aA9UdQms

https://pastebin.com/isMLxXvs

I think the man page being produced is wonky because youtube-dl/devscripts/prepare_manpage.py isn't patched, so it still generates some pandoc-isms. (I tried reading with 'nroff -man' which may be causing the wonkyness?...) But the above patches seem to eliminate the need for pandoc. (I'm OCD so I fixed some other stuff, too... sorry ;)

HTH! :)

Hi,

Makefile in this pkg uses pandoc, which pulls in 114 dependencies since I don't have it installed. IMHO, that is beyond nuts :^\

pandoc seems to be called only twice:

youtube-dl/Makefile:

pandoc -f $(MARKDOWN) -t plain README.md -o README.txt

pandoc -s -f $(MARKDOWN) -t man youtube-dl.1.temp.md -o youtube-dl.1

Would it be possible to require as makedepends discount (extra) and python-html2text (community) to convert .md to .txt, and marked-man (community) to convert .md to man(1)? Some additional patching may be needed to youtube-dl/devscripts/prepare_manpage.py and youtube-dl/devscripts/release.sh ???

Of course, this is purely my 2c! HTH :)

I never used it because I don't use software written by idiots who distribute code that contains test cases of downloading copyrighted video that end up as Exhibit A on a RIAA take down.

In this file https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2020/10/2020-10-23-RIAA.md are the words "Exhibit A, the source code expressly suggests its use to copy and/or distribute the following copyrighted works owned by our member companies: • Icona Pop – I Love It ...".

In this file https://gitlab.com/gjonesGitLab/youtube-dl/-/blob/master/youtube_dl/extractor/youtube.py is "Icona Pop - I Love It".
