youtube mirror; guides

here's a two fer

one; technical. to make things more privacy and OSS or whatever; use one of those youtube mirror sites that anonymizes the viewer.

two; cultural. to make wetfish more useful; publish guides to things lots of fish do. like hosting an irc shell, or, something im interested in- making a pie hole that blocks all ads on a wifi network, for devices that won't let you install ad blocking software (like smart TVs and iphones)

i guess there's nothing stopping me from making my own thread with my journey of discovery as i try and make one. maybe i will do this

imo the easiest way to download youtube videos is by using youtube-dl https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp

it actually supports downloading files off of hundreds of sites including reddit, twitter, facebook, instagram, etc.

a truly great archival tool!

Wetfish could participate in the Individuous project; they got docker images.
