FAQ

What is the cause for "[ERROR] Yandex.Music is not available"?

Currently Yandex Music is available only for Russia and CIS countries. For other countries you should either acquire paid subscription or use it through proxy (--proxy parameter) from one of those countries. Thus it is possible to download from any country if you have an active Yandex.Music service subscription (https://music.yandex.ru/pay).
