Nice dive into some custom download options. I've used youtube-dl a lot and really like it. One bit of advice. An error comes up when I run it after a new version comes out. Simple fix. Purge the old version and reinstall the app. Thanks for the good work.

@distrotube Great tool! A word of advice is that you should really enclose your URL in quotation marks. I watched your demonstrations and noticed that the ampersand symbol in the URL as part of the query string caused the shell to execute the command in the background. You tried to use control-C to break out of one of the downloads but that had no effect since the download was in the background.
