Please everyone stop spamming this package with online services. This box is for comments about this package, not about how not to use it.

I'll delete without any confirmation further comments related to online services.

Please update. New version is supposed to fix the playlist parsing issue.

The lib is total trash, in a free version you can only download 25 videos in theory, practically half of them are unavailable (parse error). I just end up with first googled website

Here's a working PKGBUILD:

Ahhhhh. It's useless. I wish they would release the source so we could recompile it against current libraries. Dang. I hate closed source.
