Hm, youtube-dl is severly throttled for my. There is a replacement project https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp which might work better. Have to try it, and hopefully it is a drop-in replacement.
It is a drop in replacement, but you have to rename/specify the config file. All options still work, my custom webfrontend for youtube-dl still works. I hope this will not be throttled by Google too soon.
