Binary search for finding problematic versions: install a specific version in homebrew and git bisect

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/14

I’ve used these excellent posts to find out which youtube-dl version started to exhibit troublesome NPO downloads, then later find the actual failing commit:

Why the effort? I needed an as recent as possible youtube-dl working on as many sites as possible because of some work preparation.

The first link is very important because brew versions and alternatives have stopped working some 6 years ago, even though they turn up high on Google searches for brew install specific version. Hence the quote from the first link:

Installing software packages on Mac is very easy with homebrew. You typically get the latest version, however often in production you do not have the latest version of a software package. Another use case is when you upgrade to the latest and you find out there is bug which blocks you doing something. In this case you would like to downgrade to the previous version until the bug is fixed.In both cases you need to install a specific version of a software package with homebrew on your Mac, which tends to be not that trivial. There is a lot of discussion about this on stackoverflow but some of them are outdated based on brew versions which is not available anymore.
