Clear Youtube DL Cache to fix 403 Forbidden error, youtube-dl 403 forbidden

If you are getting the error:

File "C:\Python\Python34\lib\urllib\", line 588, in http_error_default
urllib.error.HTTPError: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden

It could be cache that is causing this issue. 

To clear the cache on windows you need to run:

./youtube-dl --rm-cache-dir

Then try running the download again, it should work now. 

Youtube-dl into MP3 example

.\youtube-dl.exe -v --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 '****VideoID***'

This is my test area for webdev. I keep a collection of code here, mostly for my reference. Also if i find a good link, i usually add it here and then forget about it.

You could also follow me on twitter or not... does anyone even use twitter anymore?

If you found something useful or like my work, you can buy me a coffee here. Mmm Coffee. ☕
