How are you using this @jerodsanto – meaning, what are you doing with the videos? Are you keeping your favorites for use on Plex?

Lots of ways! I’m not much of an archivist, so I’m not keeping favorites (I don’t have Plex), but that’s probably what most people use it for.

  • Sometimes I want to extract a full-res frame from a video, so I download it & open in VLC
  • Sometimes I want to download a video off Twitter (yes, youtube-dl can do this as well!)
  • Sometimes I want audio-only off YouTube (youtube-dl -x --audio-format mp3)
