youtube-dl extremely slow

Hello everybody!

I started using youtube-dl more often lately to download chess videos. It used to work fine and downloaded ~150 MB videos in a few (less than 5) minutes.
And then about two weeks ago it started to download such videos extremely slowly.
Here is the output from today

[youtube] xWeli0Q1lO0: Downloading webpage
[download] Destination: Karpov vs. Korchnoi _ Candidates Final 1974 - GM Ben Finegold-xWeli0Q1lO0.mp4
[download] 100% of 105.17MiB in 28:59
[youtube] w2M3lmQ37Yw: Downloading webpage
[download] Destination: Understanding Strategic Ideas _ Karpov vs. Kamsky 1992 - GM Ben Finegold-w2M3lmQ37Yw.mp4
[download] 100% of 127.30MiB in 31:42

It is the latest version

Any ideas?

Re: youtube-dl extremely slow

use 

yt-dlp

instead of

youtube-dl

install it as

sudo pacman -S yt-dlp 

(tried ,for me its working faster than youtube-dl)
