Teaspeak music bot release

Hello my TeaSpeakers,
today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite updates!
Most of you will say that I already announced that, but for everyone who still does not know what i am talking about :
The built-in Teaspeak music bot system.

What can I do with this new system?
Pretty much everything what you want and what you expect from a music bot system.
Basically you could say it's just playing music, but it's much more.
Because of the integrated system, the Teaspeak music bot has a lot more advantages against all other existing music bot systems. For more details see the advantages section.
At last but not least I have to say, cause the music bot system is still under development you're currently restricted to websites which youtube-dl supports (e.g. Youtube.com, MyVideo.tv,... Full list at https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/supportedsites.html)
But I surely will implement a streaming support as well really soon. (Done in 1.0.23b)

What are the advantages?
- You can easily play sound through Tea*Speak, and share your favorite music with your friends

Advantages against usual music bots :
- Cause the ingrained system you don't lose your server power to a remote client which has to been updated an keept connected
- You don't have that much bandwidth usage. A general music bot has to connect to you server and has to send the music to you, than you could relay it. The Teaspeak music system just plays the music.
- Much more efficient. The Teaspeak music bot system just plays the music when is really required and somebody is listening to. If nobody is listen to the music Teaspeak does not play it.
- No information restriction. Teaspeak music bots are not bind on query or client events. The could have the same information as the server. This cause a lot more and even faster external futures e.g. a client follow system
- The Teaspeak music bot system provides an open source music playback system (https://github.com/TeaSpeak/TeaMusic-Providers)

System requirements
For the Teaspeak music add on don't requires some extra stuff. But if you would replay YouTube you have to install Youtube-dl. Cause the reason that the bot currently only replays yt videos the requirement of the Youtube-dl is necessary

How to use:
Just use the command .help in your current channel's chat.

I also don't know how to use YouTube-dl for this. Can u do a tutorial?

I can't find out where i can find there how to use YouTube-dl. I don't know also "how to" or "for what" this commands: formats, player.
<18:24:24> "Music Manager": Available music bot commands: (green = permission granted | red = insufficient permissions)
  .mbot list [<server|channel>]
  .mbot select <id>
  .mbot formats
  .mbot create

  .mbot delete
  .mbot yt <video url>

This innovation can be the best, but i think no one can use it.

You can simply download it:
sudo curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl
