So yeah pirate everything fuck giving corporations cash. Ask the creatives that made what you enjoy for their PayPal’s and give them 100% of the proceeds from your purchase.
@Alekhine If only there was some kind of *distributed* version control system to use. 🤔
So, if this youtube-dl thing ends up with distributions such as #debian being pressured to remove it, I hope they consider this:
The RIAA would not have brought this action without Google's backing. Google is not a friend of your distribution.
Perhaps your distro should IDK, change its default search engine.

I download videos (not music/movies, mind you) during an "unmetered period" late at night since I cannot fully utilize my home internet connection
if YTDL went away, I'd effectively be limited to one video a day, and it'd have to be at 360p or 480p, and no longer than 10-15 (20 max) minutes unless I wanted to 'gamble' on whether our monthly quote would be covered until the next period
also, it doesn't roll over
ALL browsers should've added this YEARS ago, I don't understand why It took this long to do It.
"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"
"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"
"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"
"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"
What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".
