Quick update youtube-dl through pip

I use youtube-dl for download video from youtube. This program is very straightforward and came with plenty of options. One day I got error message that start with ‘encrypted signature’ . After look around I was told to upgrade my youtube-dl into latest version.

$ sudo dpkg –get-selections | grep youtube
youtube-dl                    install


Since I use pip for install this software then pip install –upgrade is come to rescue.

$ sudo pip install –upgrade youtube_dl
