It's fucking impossible to download a video hosted on Reddit, what a shitty website

I don't have a choice, the video is too good: Prime Minister of Luxembourg about Brexit

@Gargron Or... Y'know... The whole thing? Because let's face it, that interviewer... Chose poorly. youtube.com/watch?v=zzcA5qV4S8

@gargron
A bit of searching led me to reddit.com/r/redditisfun/comme which contains v.redd.it/0xt0ozlk8b421/DASH_4 specified as the fallback URL, changing that to v.redd.it/0xt0ozlk8b421/audio gets the audio track, then trusty ol' `ffmpeg` to combine the two and make it all small enough and in a format that the Mastodon web interface accepts, et (eventually) viola.

@keithzg @Gargron Or .. you can just use youtube-dl, which has a handler for Reddit Video 😊

@moritzheiber Yeah, in theory. I even updated it and it still only downloaded the video, not the audio, though :/

@keithzg I just downloaded it without any issues .. ? Use the original post URL, not the straight video URL.

@moritzheiber *shrug* that's exactly what I did at first, I'm surprised that it didn't work too!

@Gargron the question is just stupid by the reporter. Basically implies: „Help us or we will kill us all!“

@gabriele There's one difference. For the UK it's like over half their import/export, for the EU it's just around 10%? Even though the 'absolute numbers' are bigger for the EU, it's a more (negative) impact for the UK. The EU can compensate, the UK can't.
