? Pfft, Wat?
I know you might be asking yourself this question, Anon:
>But why do I need to save anything, much less everything? After all, it's current year and we have the Internet. Don't we live in a society? Can't I just watch every.thing.ever. 24/7 on Google YouTube with my handy Apple iPad? Obviously that's NEVER going to change, so why even worry about it?
If that's you asking yourself that right about now Anon, I have just two words for you:
OK, so maybe that's more than two, but I hope you get the point. Leftists and their cancel-culture frenzy won't be satisfied until their snowflake-safespace 'utopias' are literally free of any and every last little crumb of wrongthink. Perfect little infobubbles. Oh, and BTW Anon...The Ministry of Truth
and The Ministry of Love
would both like to have a word with you about that 'robowaifu' thing of yours, "You got a loicense for that, Mate?
It's on un-approved lists, it is."
Your favorite channels may not be around forever Anon. Better get 'em now while you still can.
Alright, enough preaching to the choir here. Maybe like me
you've already accumulated your own copies of literally thousands of videos such as these but just in case
, how do you go about this yourself if you haven't done? Well for starters if you don't already know about it then run, don't walk, and setup a copy of youtube-dl on your box right now. (1
Then, create a directory to contain all the downloaded video, subtitles, descriptions, and other content for each playlist. A convenient way for a beginner would be to simply copy/paste the naming I use: (*
> #1 #2
Create a new text file in that same directory, named the same as
the directory, with the extension .m3u
Copy the list text from the codeblock itself and paste it into your new text file
This is the playlist, which you can run with mpv
Open that directory and run the youtube-dl command (posted here in the codeblock related to that playlist). So, for the above example, you'd run this from the terminal:
youtube-dl -i --write-description --write-auto-sub --sub-lang="en" https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLn3ukorJv4vvJM7tvjet4PP-LVjJx13oB
It's probably easier on you if you first create a script with the youtube-dl command + the initial 4 (of the 5) params in a script file in your home directory, then just call that from your new playlist's download directory. That's how I do it:
Seems like a lot of work I imagine, but really stuff like this just becomes second nature before long. Do it regularly enough, and soon you too will have an entire library of training resources you can call up in a moment's notice -- and which can't be taken down on you.
>* BTW Anon, just in case my writing wasn't clear enough on it in that post; Create one new, separate, directory for each playlist ITT. Any other approach will result in an abominable filepile mess.
