I've been thinking about what I said to Hu about format codes being universal and I think he might get a wrong idea. By universal I meant universal to all youtube videos. Other sites may provide different names (not even codes) for their formats. Youtube-dl supports tens of various sites (including twitch or niconico) and is a huge umbrella project. I think at some point it might become just as bloated as browsers lol. After all, it is not a simple HTML parser, it most likely can execute JS code and even if it can't, it must duplicate some of that functionality or some data just becomes inaccessible.
inb4 Hu never reads this
