Project Inactivity

I don't have a particular idea of the best way to add this to the page, but it's worth noting that ytdl in not currently maintained, and lots of people have switched to a fork called yt-dlp. There's a package for it in the community repo. See: for a little info. on project status. — rjt (talk) 14:17, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
