    YouTube Dash Manifest Generator NodeJS Documentation

    This NodeJS library generates a DASH Manifest file for a YouTube video in order to allow a playback with 1080p+ resolutions. It is developed for and tailored towards easy usage in the FreeTube rewrite but can be used with any other project as well. It takes the adaptive formats of the response string as input. If this library should not work at some point, please create an issue and let me know so that I can take a look into it. Pull requests are also welcomed in this case.
