A Youtube Extractor library. Search for videos and get information about them and even the video to play or download

I'll try to update every few days to weekly with features. After the main features have been fully implemented it will be any bug fixes to small changes. For now any questions or problems relating to this library ask in stackoverflow until a github repository has been setup or through Nuget

This link is to a zip that contains examples using Winforms to display and search for videos with multiple different ways to display said videos.

Version 1.0.3 will be coming in the next week to few weeks. Even although I did say weekly, this is all being done solo.
