@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.

Also, this one looks like a copy on gitee (Chinese github mirror)

ComicSads commented on 2020-10-23 23:12

Does anyone have a reliable mirror of the source code on something other than github?

EDIT: I found a mirror here

Yeap, looks like it will be for a while

Thanks disastro, indeed it works again with python-setuptools 1:47.3.0-1, as mentioned in that issue.

disastro commented on 2020-06-15 17:59

Hey buzo! will wait for what happens there before doing anything. Downgrading python-setuptools works on a brief test.

Does not work after building and installing the current version:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/youtube-dl", line 9, in <module>
    for entry_point in distribution('youtube-dl==2020.6.6').entry_points:

    return Distribution.from_name(distribution_name)

    raise PackageNotFoundError(name)

As noted previously rg3 redirected correctly to this date, but I updated the URLs now.

The date on the pkgver is the last tag available in git, usually a release they made if I'm not mistaken since they just use dates as version numbers.

buzo commented on 2020-04-21 12:31

Please update the upstream and download URL, it is (not rg3).

Also, the latest commit is from April 11th, but this package builds version 2020.03.24.r16.00eb865b3-1. What is wrong there?

The github URL has been changed to The old url redirects, but you may want to update the package.
