youtube_dl 2019.11.28 is broken on, ironically, youtube.com now. See upstream bug: https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/issues/23819
The 2020-01-24 release includes a fix for it: "[youtube] Fix sigfunc name extraction".

Patch to update
Tested patch, confirmed it fixes youtube.com.
I just pushed a new patch for this port on Phabricator and noticed your submission afterwards. It's identical to yours except that my also removes archivers/zip build dependency which I think is a welcome change. It's been open since the 24th Dec without any feedback from maintainer so it should be fine to commit due timeout?
That does seem like a nice change. Unfortunately, I don't have a ports commit bit so we're still stuck waiting on someone with a ports bit to bless.
