They should call it yterbium. There's an element called that.

It saved them from being taken down!

Anyhow, still no news on yt-dl's own site...

Well, they did have a fork named youtube-dlc which was taken down, but they pushed the code to a new repo the next day.

Which at least shows they're responsive - and perhaps better custodians than the previous ones. Hopefully if/when previous yt-dl devs return, they can all collaborate as a team.

Scared me for a moment!
Yes, the repo is at https://github.com/blackjack4494/yt-dlc and I just experienced that it works better on youtube than the original youtube-dl.
I hope the repo owner will announce an alternate (off github) location soon.

I just carried out my weekly AntiX update and youtube-dl was included.

Good news indeed, thanks for sharing!

Facit:
  • It pays to support the EFF (I'm not uncritical of them, but they clearly delivered here).
  • The RIAA's claims of circumventing encryption were - as I thought - bogus technobabble.
The article above has a short explanation. The EFF's letter to github has a slightly longer but still non-technical explanation. I recommend it in its entirety. The link is from this github blog - of course they're shamelessly overplaying the "we're the good guys" theme, but I'm still glad.
