I have been using youtube-dl (https://youtube-dl.org/) from the DOS box. It has help information via the command:
It spits out several screens worth of information, but the DOS box closes immediately so I don't have time to read it. This also happens when downloading a video if there is an error. The error flashes by quickly and then the DOS Box closes.
How can I keep it open? I've tried the "/k" switch in all kinds of configurations,
youtube-dl /k "https://www.xyz....." youtube-dl "https://www.xyz....." /k youtube-dl "https://www.xyz..... /k"
but nothing works..
