I am not a python programmer, so I might be wrong... but what I found after testing my program needs files of `
but, community/yt-dlp package dose not have files of `
` folder. It only contains the binary to be used by the terminal. so it can not work as a dependency. And AUR/youtube-dlp-bin is the same. only the binary. And there is AUR/yt-dlp-git which have `
` folder with all the files needs to be a dependency but it is a git package...
I already wrote a package by the name python-yt-dlp which is built the way a python package is supposed to be built. As any of them can't function as a dependency should I upload it ?? or should I make a bug report in community/yt-dl ??.
might not be the right solution, but?
the /usr/bin/yt-dlp file is actually a python package as a zip archive, that has all the python modules in it.
even this works `PYTHONPATH=yt-dlp python` and then you can import from the yt_dlp package.
you might use this as a kind of a fix
that certainly works. but why this weird solution ?? why that 'yt-dlp' package is an archive in /bin ?? why it's not like a normal python package so that it can be used as a normal terminal utility and a library at the same time ?? I don't get it.
a simple package like this works just fine => https://gist.github.com/z00rat/48283ea15353ff86c3222316feaca649 it just works as a command and as a library. btw, it has that GUI (yt-dlg) too.
TBH, i would rather prefer a universal way to do those things...
ps: am i supposed to get mail or in an aur-general Digest when ever someone mail in my thread ?? i only get email as a digest....
