2.31-pre2, yes? Pre-release
hey there, this adds another feature to the download/batch downloader, and some bug fixes? please be gentle

Clipboard scanning to auto-download or add to a batch download queue. I'm not fully committed to keeping it, though, because of security concerns.
Anyone using not yt-dlp should have regular functionality back.
Batch downloading importing links from a text file should work(tm)
I added the clipboard scanning feature as a test-the-waters kind of thing, since it can easily be abused by forks of this project. My major concern is the clipboard can be used to store temporary (but HIGHLY SENSITIVE) information, like passwords, information for paying for something, your address, etc and it can be easily redirected to other places in forks of this project. I can't stress enough, if you're concerned about the integrity of your version of this program, only download the program from this repository and do not download it from either a mirror or in the program (since that can be redirected as well). You can also verify the hash from previous version posted on this repository as well. Now i'm finished posting this to my blog, so here's the rest of the information you need for this release.

this is a pre-release because it's probably not fully stable, but hey you know it fixes some stuff.

Anyone using the yt-dlp fork will see a console window instead of the regular download window. This is because if the output is redirected, it will literally spam the form thread causing it to not be responsive to abort or cancel requests.
If no language is selected on first-time, the program will just exit. (This may just default to English instead, but you never know).
Batch conversion has been added so you can convert multiple things at once.
Multiple batch downloads/conversions can now be done simultaneously.
FIxed yt-dl being used instead of forks, which required users to re-download youtube-dl to use the selected fork.

All features

This is simply a GUI for said application for windows users, without the inconsistent GUI bloat, and weight, and possible viruses. youtube-dl is not included because it's not my program, instead this application automatically downloads it. I don't fully understand how youtube-dl works, so this is only including 3 donload options, Video, Audio (MP3), and Custom, as well as changable audio quality ranging from 8-320k. Custom lets you input your own youtube-dl arguments. Settings is not quite done yet, but will be included once I get around to finding a way to save them. I, then, need to find a way to move the newely created file to a customizable path set by the user, but for now it saves the files in the youtube-dl folder.

Outstanding software, specially for people with limited vision. I always have problems with command line programs because of that. This program solves that and numerous other things. In my opinion, Batch Download is like a programmable Auto-Pilot. Set it up, turn it on and it runs until my ISP craps out or it finishes the list of files in the batch. Thank you, Murrty!

Youtube-dl-gui, in my opinion is very simple and effective, and has everything you need, to use youtube dl in the best way, an outstanding feature it is the batch download, it is the only program that has this function, and depending on the site you download it from, this tool is of paramount importance, and gives a very large time gain. For me, who doesn't understand much of the youtube-dl command lines, the tools already available help me a lot! I recommend this program.
