the glow-in-the-dark RIAA niggers took down the github repo for youtube-dl and it seems that using the latest version no longer works on any videos that have copyrighted music in them. any other software for this? obviously something that rips the media and doesn't re-encode or anything niggerlicious like that gas kikes
>>3105 I know nothing about the youtube API so if someone has already done it I'd rather not struggle to reinvent the wheel
>>3106 Well if you or someone ever decide to, then do it in a White man's language instead of Python this time.
https://github.com/youtube-dl2/youtube-dl last commit 9 days ago, so post the official version available after the takedown.
>>3115 The instructions there work. Apparently the original yt-dl setup/instructions still work. sudo curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl youtube-dl --version 2020.11.01.1
I appreciate that they're still updating despite the lack of a git repo, but even on latest release (released today) you can't download youtube videos with copyrighted music. Other videos work fine. RIAA nigger influence fucking ruined this tool.
>>3117 I'm testing it right now with the new version from today and it seems to be working fine. This is all official channel, copyrighted music by Switchfoot. youtube-dl -i https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6Mb92FE5WdW8Mn7s8ZtGhKHjqnBnKv1m
>>3118 I have no fucking idea why but it's working now. I have been trying tons of videos and was continuously getting errors, tried the first video in the playlist you sent and it worked and now all the other links that weren't working are downloading. my noggin is joggin so fucking hard right now
>>3119 Good, glad to hear it Anon. I think this should be a clear heads-up to us all what they plan to do. Now more than ever Save Everything.
eh, it was pretty much dead anyway the "community" fork is still fine and up
>>3134 >eh, it was pretty much dead anyway what the fuck are you talking about? no, it wasn't. it 100% was not dead at all
>>3134 heh, welcome to the internet troonfriend.
>>3134 no, not dead. almost dead. the whole project was starving because of lack of maintainers. before the shutdown pretty much the only person doing anything with the repo was dstftw and he only bothered to show up like once a month to merge a few critical bugfixes. other stuff like fixes to less important extractors, improvements and new extractors were brushed aside and ended up hanging on the pr's list for eternity (iirc there was something like 700-ish pr's in september). i tried adding a new extractor some time ago and even though it got reviewed by someone, it just hanged there until the dlc fork came along and finally merged it. so yeah, not exactly dead, more like a bleeding corpse.
>>3143 derp, i meant >>3140
