    Play-dl

    A light-weight YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify and Deezer streaming and searching library.

    • Search by video, playlist/album, channel/artist
    • Stream audio from YouTube and SoundCloud

    Why play-dl ?

    ytdl-core has some issues with miniget and also stream abort issues. On the other hand, youtube-dl is a perfect alternative but it takes time to launch. Hence, play-dl is created to avoid these issues along with providing comparatively faster performance than others.

    Compatibility issues - discord-player

    Because discord-player doesn't work with raw opus packets you need to enable the compatibility mode in play-dl, if you want to use both frameworks together.

    • To fix the playback of YouTube videos with discord-player, you can disable some of play-dl's optimisations and fixes by setting the discordPlayerCompatibility option for stream and stream_from_info to true

    • The discordPlayerCompatiblity option might break the playback of long YouTube videos.

    • Even with the discordPlayerCompatibility option set you will not be able to use the seek option for stream and stream_from_info.
