hello Didier and all,

Thanks a million for updating the youtube-dl to yt-dlp. It made a huge 
difference in terms of download speed. When I tried youtube-dl I was 
disappointed. It took almost 15 minutes to download a five minutes 
video. with yt-dlp it took half a minute to download the same video.

I have a question though. What is the correct format to specify the 
folder where I want the downloaded tracks to go to? I tried -Folder, 
--Folder and /Folder/ but it did not work. It simply dumped the tracks 
on my desktop.
