Sadly, still not one single patch from anyone but me!  :P

Why?
Why not ?  :P
Actually tbh I'm not sure what you're asking -- maybe I was too brief ?
I was looking for this thread, couldn't remember the yaydl name and tried a forum search for 'youtube downloader'. This thread didn't show up, not in the first page of results anyways. It's now the sixth result.

FYI, we're at 0.6.1 (upstream) now, additionally supporting three more sites.
If anyone here has a Windows machine, feel free to attach an updated binary here - everyone else can just grab it from the usual repositories (on Windows, that includes Cargo).

I know, there are massive problems with certain YouTube (and even VOE) videos, e.g. those which are a playlist (or split into many .ts files) won't work at all...
Still no help. :(

Version 0.6.4 was updated to use a newer version of the YouTube API. I hope it helps!

(I'll probably update it to 0.6.5 to better display YouTube-side errors...)

Wait no longer!

It turns out that YouTube marks some videos as "unplayable" in its API. yaydl will now say it does not exist.  :)

Yup, it was a mistake caused by yaydl using an undocumented API.
Fixed in 0.6.6. The last release for today. Pinky promise!

You can also install Rust and then "cargo install yaydl".
