Your first port of call should be the author of the app, make him/her aware of the problem.

Actually there was a bug in YTPlayer which caused installing youtube-dl to fail. I fixed the issue in 0.6.8, please see OpenRepos comment for details.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

@keywan It is not updated in Jolla Store. There's version 0.5.4 and it doesn't have an option to update youtube-dl. I suppose @predator2019 speaks about OpenRepos version: link.
