Mycroft-youtube failed to load

I have installed a skill, but it fails to load. I know nothing about Python, so help would be greatly appreciated. The skill can be found at GitHub - augustnmonteiro/mycroft-youtube: A skill to play youtube.

When starting Mycroft, I get this error:
22:13:51.636 - mycroft.skills.core:load_skill:166 - ERROR - Failed to load skill: youtube

from .async import process_pool
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

This is because async became a keyword in Python 3.7.

You could either run this with Python 3.6 or below, how to do this depends on what OS you are using.
An alternative would be to rename async in the firebase package you have to anything that’s not async.

Unfortunately neither of these are the best fix. Ultimately, firebase needs to update their package :frowning:

You could try the Youtube skill fromm @AIIX. It seems newer
