Is it me, or has youtube-dl become nearly useless over the last year or so?


No, it works, but the number of sites it no longer supports, either because they took the functionality out (copyright claims), or because the sites themselves have switched to weird homegrown HTML 5 players that aren't supported, has grown precipitous. It's still fine with YouTube, but that's the place I probably use it the least.

I use it often and it works well... Maybe you're using an LTS dristribution. That's why! They don't update youtube-dl and google often changes some configuration here and then...
