Mixing different installation types (rpm / pip) is never good. Even after a short time, it can no longer be traced. This can then cause other problems at a later point in time.
And the real problem was that the rpm package yt-dlp does not work. 
And under given conditions, a functioning rpm package cannot be created.
Of course, you can install everything manually. With all its disadvantages. But this is nothing for the masses.
And certainly not a functioning rpm package.
