+1 for yt-dlp.

For decades the best I could get from my ISP was 5mbps. Not great for streaming video, but YouTube at 720p could juuuuust barely keep up. Assuming absolutely nothing else was going on at the same time over my network.

I now have 25mbps through another ISP...but, they slow you down to 3mbps (worse than I had before!) when they detect you're streaming video. Or so their marketing material claims. I don't stream nearly enough video to say I've noticed. But then maybe I'm not noticing because that's (close to) what I'm accustomed to.

I could've sworn the CRTC (Canada's closest thing to the US's FCC) had slapped that one down a few years ago. Is the whole packet inspection / net neutrality thing still a thing in this day and age? I mean, how else would they know?
