OH HEY THERE

So you came into the IRC channel to ask about downloading Yahoo! Video. Here's what you need to know first.

You need:

  • UNIX
  • wget
  • python 2.x
  • AN IRON WILL UNSEEN IN YOUR GENETIC LINE BEFORE YOUR GLORIOUS BIRTH
  • At least 500gb free, TBs preferred (not NTFS or FAT32. ReiserFS or XFS would be great. EXT3, EXT4, HFS+ are all known to work ok)
  • Solid bandwidth


You should go to this directory and grab the following scripts:

  • status
  • youtube-dl
  • grapefruit

Put them in a directory you want to have fill with Yahoo! Video. Or, at least, one you're willing to. You will need a "Hotlist", a list of User IDs to pull from. We're assigning those. Speak to SketchCow or Chronomex (or if neither are around, underscor). We'll assign you one.

Download said hotlist. It'll be a textfile. Also put it in that directory. We haven't made a pretty wrapper for this, mostly as a test. Go to sh and do this:

for each in `cat hotlist.txt`; do ./grapefruit $each; done

Off it'll go. It will take it days or over a week. Some of you have mutations for bandwidth, others are more consumer level. All are helping.

When you want to mention in the IRC channel how you're doing, do:

./status hotlist.txt

And you'll get a nice copy-pastable output to tell us how things are.
