Youtube-dl grabber plugin problem

Unfortunately, while using youtube-dl, there is a problem when I want to download youporn, redtube and xvideos videos manually, I get an error message and in neither case does the grabber download the video.

The latest version of youtube-dl is December 17, 2021.

Do you have any ideas on how to solve the problem?
I can download and upload videos to the system from all other porn tube sites, but unfortunately these three types don’t work.

  • Tech Support changed the title to Youtube-dl grabber plugin problem

It is recommended to use another library called yt-dlp: https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp

Youtube-dl library was not supported for almost 6 months, it looks like they have just released a new build, but it may not be stable, also there is no guarantee that they will continue releasing updates in future. Therefore please try to use yt-dlp instead.
