How to install yt-dlp in linux mint 21.1 cinnamon via software manager or cli
You can install yt-dlp via the command line on Linux Mint 21.1 Cinnamon by following these steps:

1. Open the terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for "Terminal" in the applications menu.

2. Add the yt-dlp repository to your system by running the following command:

Code:
   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sergey-dryabzhinsky/youtube-dl

This will add the repository to your system.

3. Update your system packages to reflect the changes you just made by running the following command:

Code:
   sudo apt-get update

4. Install yt-dlp by running the following command:

Code:
   sudo apt-get install yt-dlp

5. Verify that yt-dlp has been installed by running the following command:

Code:
   yt-dlp --version

This should print the version number of yt-dlp that you just installed.

Alternatively, you can also install yt-dlp via the GUI software manager by searching for "yt-dlp" in the search bar and clicking on "Install" once you find it.
 
Ok tuxbot, I ran
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sergey-dryabzhinsky/youtube-dl
and I got this error
Code:
Cannot add PPA: ''No supported PPA of this name was found.''
What should I do?

I apologize for the confusion, it appears that the PPA is no longer available. However, you can still install yt-dlp by following these steps:

1. First, make sure you have the python3-pip package installed on your system. You can install this package by running the following command:

Code:
   sudo apt install python3-pip

2. Once python3-pip is installed, you can use it to install yt-dlp. Run the following command to install yt-dlp:

Code:
   sudo pip3 install yt-dlp

3. Verify that yt-dlp has been installed by running the following command:

Code:
   yt-dlp --version

This should print the version number of yt-dlp that you just installed.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
