When you click the link:
you are not actually downloading anything from "yt-dl.org", but instead
it is referring you to download it from GitHub. That is why they are the
same, because both links download the exact same file from the
exact same place.

It is just for aesthetics really I'm guessing. It's really just up to the
SlackBuild maintainer what link they prefer to use.
