It just came to my attention that an unfamiliar
bin folder with a
yt-dlp file has been sitting in my Home folder since February.
This is a python 3 executable script, which starts with
#!/usr/bin/env python3, seems to link to some
yt_dlp/YoutubeDL/pyUT and apart from that it is unintelligible.
I already have
youtube-dl installed from the manjaro repos.
I do not have
yt-dlp installed at all (I checked with
pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.10 and
python -m pip list | grep ), nor can I recall trying to install it.
There’s just this strange
bin/yt-dlp, sitting in my Home folder.
I removed it and youtube-dl works fine.
To me it almost looks like something that failed to download half-way.
Even if it came as a dependency for another package, wouldn’t it be somewhere else?
I doubt I would create a bin directory in my Home folder, when I’ve already had youtube-dl installed and working for the past 6 months, but who knows, maybe I was trying to troubleshoot something.
Could this be something required by a package?
