    How do i use the "--cookies" with the -g so that i can use axel or aria2c to download the video?

    What does the '-g' option do? I can find no mention of it on the youtube-dl documentation page or on the youtube-dl man page

    The "-g" option is the --get-url which is suppose get the url of the video so that you can use a download accelerator to download a vedio.

    As it's not in the current documentation, then perhaps it's been removed. Is there another way to get the URL of the stream for this purpose? I find it odd that a feature could be removed if there were no other way to do it.
