I don't have any consistency right now, as I'm still experimenting. I download some music from tpb and store it locally. I've also been listening on Spotify with a hosts file ad-block. For videos, I was using hooktube until I found out it was created by nazis and is closed-source. Now I'm back to watching on youtube if I'm impatient or using a bash script to run youtube-dl, play in mpv, and then delete the file, if I have time to wait and want to watch in 1080p60fps without buffering. I'm currently looking for a way to autorun the script when I visit a youtube URL. Maybe I can modify the hooktube-redirector browser plugin.

For music, mainly it's Spotify. I got my first iPhone 23 months ago, and while I don't dislike it (I'm a phone guy with no loyalty, never tried Apple before and I wanted to), I don't like how it does music, so I just use Spotify mainly.

Backup is Google Play Music, where I have all my legally purchased music uploaded. GPM works fine on iPhone, only it doesn't have the music store the Android version does (though I can go to it on the web, so FU Apple).

Tertiary is TinyMusic, an app I can sideload music into. It's where I keep stuff that is 100% offline that I can have regardless of data connection.

Video is similar, mostly it's legal streaming through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or Funimation Now (gotta scratch that anime itch). We also have Plex for watching ripped DVDs on the TV.

I made a huge music playlist on YouTube and downloaded all of that at once with youtube-dl, and then I play that with MPD. For movies/series I download them using transmission and watch them with Kodi.

It annoys me that mp3s converted from youtube don't have any tags.

Yeah me too, that's the biggest downside. But at home it doesn't really bother me because I always listen to the songs in shuffle mode without paying much attention to what I'm listening to.

Is there a way to automatically download newly added videos to a channel with youtube-dlg?

You can make a script which indexes what files you already have and run it once in a while, that's what I do.

youtube-dl --download-archive downloaded.txt --no-post-overwrites -ciw
x --audio-format mp3 -o "%(title)s.%(ext)s" https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAYLISTHASH

great, thanks! Stupid questions because I'm still learning this stuff - will this download just the audio or the whole video? plus it works just for playlists right?

and one unrelated question - what are the requirements to create forum?

It will download the whole video, convert it to audio and remove the video again. It works for both playlists and single videos (I think).

I don't think there are any requirements for creating a forum besides maintaining it, what forum are you trying to create?

what forums are you trying to create?

nothing in particular, I was just curious because if I go to https://raddle.me/forums I see, at the top, the message "You cannot create forums yet."

It will download the whole video, convert it to audio and remove the video again.

great, will be useful for adding songs to Play Music - Is there a way to download the video and stick with the video though?

Fossidarity wrote

Yeah of course, you can see the command line options here, if you remove the -x flag it should just download the video.

Old skool

CD's mostly borrowed through inter library loans, converted to flac then stored on sdcard/HD on computer and phone with back up.

Anything on YouTube etc just gets downloaded.

Weird things I find on vinyl get put through a deck through digital conversion.

And I use vlc to play everything...

I've got Linux 16.04 installed on an old laptop with Plex, Sonarr, Radarr, Deluge WebUI, PlexPy, Ombi and Jackett installed. I've got Plex on a MiBox connected to my TV, and installed on my main laptop and tablet.

I've created a small, private one page website where my family can request movies, tv shows, etc etc

I'm looking for good eBook and music apps right now (are LazyLibrarian and Headphones any good?)

Also got YouTube-dlg installed, and I back up everything I download on various cloud accounts.
