Description of your issue, suggested solution and other information

Hi, youtube-dl is now rejecting my attempts to enter my two-factor code, making me unable to download a YouTube Red video. I add my username and password to my config file, and youtube-dl correctly asks for my two-factor, but it rejects it every time with the "HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error" error. I have tried doing this on a separate computer with a separate internet connection, and I have tried using both my Authy token and a backup code token. I have also tried it manually without using any config file. This worked several months ago, so maybe something changed on the app's end or youtube's end? Thx!

u downloadin kedi? i downloaded that yesterday no prob.

i don't know how to RESOLVE your issue, but as a WORKAROUND, you can use the --cookie option. get cookies.txt extension for chrome or firefox and then export your cookies and use with youtube-dl.

@QWp6t Thanks for the suggestion, appreciate it. Using --cookies as a workaround worked perfectly. I'm still not sure why the TFA prompt is failing, so I'll leave this up, but using the workaround is actually preferable to me.

Using --cookies instead of --username/--password worked fine.
