@chambln Yes, that was - more or less - my guess. More exposure = more chances to get support via Patreon. No argue about this.
And it's fine with me, I can easily get around YT (since I personally wish to). While still promoting Derek's videos each time I can. I find them very pleasant to watch 👌
@Obelux I keep up with his videos via RSS and play them directly in mpv (which streams video using youtube-dl). No ads and I don’t even have to open a web browser any more 👌
@chambln Sorry for the delay Gregory. Very interesting method! Could you please share a concrete example of the steps you take to stream a video via mpv? (should be a single command I guess)
I'll give it a try :)
@Obelux I also have a macro in my newsboat config so I can hit “,m” to play the selected item in mpv
@chambln Thanks a lot! But I seem to have a problem with... Google.
[ytdl_hook] ERROR: ussCHoQttyQ: YouTube said: Unable to extract video data [ytdl_hook] youtube-dl failed: unexpected error ocurred Failed to recognize file format.
I'm using a VPN. Could it be the reason?...
@Obelux yeah that can happen sometimes. sometimes it works for me if I just run it a second time. also check that you have an up to date version of youtube-dl
@Obelux my understanding is that Google change the API from time to time so the youtube-dl maintainers have to keep up with it.
