ERROR: Youtube said: Unable to extract video data

Hi, I apologise if this has been solved anywhere else however I cannot find a fix that has worked for me yet...
So, I installed the `Youtube_Search` script and it seems that when I try to download I get
ERROR: "video link" Youtube said: Unable to extract video data
I've updated youtube-dl on ubuntu and nothing seems to work? Has anyone else found a solution that may work.

I am using version: 1.0.0-beta.10-202ee4d with default config
and using Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

The relevant logs I get when trying downloads are posted below:

I redownloaded youtube-dl with the link provided on the install page and that fixed it. This post can be closed

This version will work with the newer youtube-dl versions - it will soon be used for the Docker image as well and a Windows version should also follow shortly.
Thanks for the patience and especially thanks to @Clubfan for providing a workaround while you had to wait!

Download from here the current sinusbot 1.0.0-beta.14-dc94a7c
