Updated clipgrab and youtube-dl packages fix some website ABI breakage

Publication date: 07 May 2021
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 8


The clipgrab and youtube-dl packages are updated because they do not work with
current youtube's links anymore and this comes directly from youtube site and
their repetitive ABI breakages.

So, this is why youtube-dl upstream added an "update functionality" directly
in their code to facilitate the daily use of users. Otherwise we have to update
youtube-dl very frequently so that it is continuously 100% functional.

The updated packages provide this functionality. User will have to run
'youtube-dl --update' as root user to let the binary to update itself.
