- How to fix out of range/url not found errors?
YouTube keeps changing its structure so it's important you have installed the latest version of youtube-dl as follows:
pip install --upgrade youtube_dl
- Where are my playlists stored and how to delete playlists?
Playlists are saved in

Buggy / unexpected playback behaviorIt was caused because of race conditions and absence of critical section among the threads. Fixed it using semaphores
If some VLC error starts showing up on the screen, just resize the terminal and it will be goneCompletely removed VLC and replaced it with much more minimal and faster mpv player. Thank to python-mpv by jaseg
