A warning in the Pontes Media download log


Gene
 

Here is a warning that sometimes appears in the Pontes Media Download log.  What does it mean and does it matter if you are just extracting audio?
Thanks for any information.

WARNING: "-f best" selects the best pre-merged format which is often not the best option.
To let yt-dlp download and merge the best available formats, simply do not pass any format selection.
If you know what you are doing and want only the best pre-merged format, use "-f b" instead to suppress this warning
