Questions about local tools for downloading from YouTube should be, prima facie, on topic: questions should be judged on technical merits Back in 2011, the question arose with regards to removing DRM.

Good answer by bertieb, although I think I come to a slightly different conclusion on the specific case of downloading protected YouTube content. Here's my take on the gray area, and how it leads to a conclusion regarding YouTube. We don't support Warez or stealing services, but it also isn't our job to police the Internet.

For context: There is a big difference between "snark" in someone potentially jokingly saying, and I quote: You're going to delete individual songs on albums? Appalling.

I'm a former mod on Software recs... and I don't think its a great idea. The quality standards there are pretty strict - so its possible that many questions, even when they are a software recommendation may need extra work to bring it up to standards. Probably better that these questions either get flagged for migration or reasked there.
