    ‘youtube-dl’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

      Are you sure you have youtube-dl.exe in the folder C:\Users\ADUNIIS?

    Hello! Things were going pretty well but I’ve gotten a permission denied error.

      I’ve started running into similar issues as noted by JT above – I get an error that an image can’t be loaded because it violates the security policy directive. However, the “image” it references is an ad. I’m also getting an error that DevTools is unable to parse the sourcemap. I wonder if this is because of the new Twitter UI, or because the video was posted in a group DM by someone who has set their account to private?
