'youtube-dl' Downloading Software Removed From GitHub By RIAA Takedown Notice

Jahta writes:

The GitHub repository for the popular youtube-dl utility is offline after GitHub received a DMCA takedown notice from the RIAA. The notice claims that “The clear purpose of this source code is to (i) circumvent the technological protection measures used by authorized streaming services such as YouTube, and (ii) reproduce and distribute music videos and sound recordings owned by our member companies without authorization for such use.” “Whether you’re looking to backup contents of your personal YouTube account or download some of your favorite YouTuber’s videos for offline use, many turn to youtube-dl as the most reliable and in-depth tool for downloading videos from YouTube – along with many, many other sites that have videos like Vimeo, CNN, etc,” writes Kyle Bradshaw via 9to5Google. “Beyond simple downloading features, youtube-dl is also able to convert your download into nearly any format, including creating an mp3 of just a video’s audio track.”

“One of the primary bases for the RIAA’s claim is that youtube-dl appears to be developed with the explicit intention of enabling the downloading of copyrighted works, with music videos from the likes of Icona Pop, Justin Timberlake, and Taylor Swift being used to test the tool’s functionality, a claim which we were able to independently verify.” It’s now up to the project’s creators to file a counterclaim in the hopes of restoring youtube-dl’s status on GitHub.


Microsoft messed up Github and planning to do same thing many useful softwares :rage:

Luckily there are still many, many ways to download videos/songs from youtube. After all, shutting down Napster didn’t end music piracy did it?


There’s so many other great youtube download programs like 4k.They’re just fighting a losing battle. It wont change a thing. People who used it will just move on to another program.


this was one of the most epic code i experienced in my life…


Never used this so just wondering does anyone know if this is the same program still available in the Snap store on Linux? If so lmao!

Yeah you’re right but that repo github is more like kind of the factory and the store just like the name it’s just a store. You cannot store something new if the factory was removed

Check out gitlab repo for the repo, they’ve got a backup of it.
