Description of your issue, suggested solution and other information

I use youtube-dl to download my subscriptions and it works flawlessly except it hangs on live videos. I've tried skipping durations, sizes, etc. Is there any way I can just ignore all live videos and not even attempt to download them?

I'll leave this here if anyone stumbles on this via google. For some reason the quotes around !is_live had to be double quotes for it to work.

Tried --match-filter "!is_live" and it worked. This was on Windows 10.
