If i set youtube-dl to download a playlist, it only downloads the first video of the playlist and then stops. This is the exact command I tried a few minutes ago.

sudo youtube-dl -f bestaudio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGwWNGJdvx8&list=PLx0sYbCqOb8TBPRdmBHs5Iftvv9TPboYG

  1. You could use the link on the Playlist, not the song https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLx0sYbCqOb8TBPRdmBHs5Iftvv9TPboYG
  2. You could use your link with the "--yes-playlist" argument

In addition, you shouldn't have to use sudo for youtube-dl
