Playlists. Eventual special characters. Assured ban.

Hi, perhaps if I am fortunate jq.exe and sed.exe (syntax error with " and '' and ' : one of
these is needed when the URL has a "&"...and/or "shell pasting typo?") are
not required for my purpose

and maybe that this forum could offer the desired working solution,
anyway what to do to be able to download the entire playlist into a specific
folder...without be banned due to the high number of requests?

source with 275 videos:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... brxDZm0Ai8

thanks a lot for suggestions.

PS:
While doing
--dump-json -i
"PLKGVLbbpbIUR5UXZDAERugDq6iZoE0QgD&fbclid=IwAR29-kHf4-54cNBs1j1KivoESJTVZ2qooFbc_7FwOVos49rpybrxDZm0Ai8"
I got an one-kilometer-long log without any space...a big nonsense for my
purpose,
instead this maybe helpful for other playlists (i.e. when the titles of each
video are different and you have to establish what videos you want):
-i --get-filename --skip-download
"PLKGVLbbpbIUR5UXZDAERugDq6iZoE0QgD&fbclid=IwAR29-kHf4-54cNBs1j1KivoESJTVZ2qooFbc_7FwOVos49rpybrxDZm0Ai8"

Good news from an expert: he was first YT banned only after a few thousand video via 10 servers; he assured me that with only 275 I am fine. No JSON needed, no jq, no sed needed,no " or ' ' or ' for special symbols. thanks God.
better so :)

PS: to avoid special symbols and quotation marks the real url is not this one I pasted above:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... brxDZm0Ai8

but this:
