YAFFplayer 0.5.6 released for Windows and Linux (Updated: v0.5.7 for Windows)

YAFFplayer video player - based on FFmpeg and GeeXLab


A new version of YAFFplayer is ready for Windows 64-bit and Linux 64-bit.

YAFFplayer is a simple video player based on FFmpeg and made with GeeXLab. Thanks to the popular youtube-dl utility, YAFFplayer can easily download video files from many youtube-like websites and even videos from Twitter.

This new update of YAFFplayer replaces youtube-dl by yt-dlp. Why? Because youtube-dl project seems a bit inactive (last update in June 2021). yt-dlp is a fork of youtube-dl and is actively maintained.
