Operation Download And Conquer Anonymous 10/02/2021 (Sat) 13:51:54 No. 5546
Given how majority of the internet's audio and video services are provided by Google, thanks to Youtube, the purpose of this operation is to loosen the death-grip that has taken hold. This process will only require that you have a steady internet connection and (Advisably) 100 GB of free space. Here is the process: Step 1 Download the latest versions of FFMpeg and Youtube-DL, and put all the programs into the same folder: http://ffmpeg.org/ https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/index.html Step 2 Create an account to any video sites that you wish to distribute videos on. Here are some of the more well-known alternatives, as well as some recommended sites: AfreecaTV: https://www.afreecatv.com/ Bitchute: https://www.bitchute.com/ BitTube: https://bittube.tv/ D.tube: https://d.tube/ Dailymotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/ LBRY: https://lbry.com/ NicoNico: https://www.nicovideo.jp/ Rumble: https://rumble.com/ Veoh: https://www.veoh.com/ VidLii: https://www.vidlii.com/ Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/ When signing up, if you do not want to use your personal email, you can create a temporary one using any one of the numerous “10 minute email” websites, Cock.li (If you have a referral link), or you can create your own email address: https://archive.fo/okVq4 Also, make sure that you fulfill whatever silly verification demands the site has so that you can upload videos without any issues Step 3 Hold “Shift” and right-click in an empty part of the folder and select “Open command window here”. Afterwards, you can download Youtube videos through one of the two following methods. First method is if you just want to repost videos and nothing more. All you have to put in the command youtube-dl URL and replace the “URL” with the actual link of the Youtube video, playlist, or channel that you want to download. Doing this will result in all the videos being downloaded, in the best quality possible, to the folder and nothing more. The second method is for those looking to repost videos in a more complete format. In the command line, instead of just the previously listed command, you copy and paste the following command: LOGFILE="$PWD/logs/$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S.%N").log" exec 3>&1 4>&2 >>$LOGFILE 2>&1 youtube-dl --verbose --ignore-errors --no-continue --no-overwrites --keep-video --no-post-overwrites --download-archive archive.txt --write-description --write-info-json --write-annotations --write-thumbnail --all-subs --output "%(uploader)s-(%(uploader_id)s)/%(upload_date)s-%(title)s/%(upload_date)s-%(title)s-%(id)s.%(ext)s" -f bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a] -- $1 After doing so, replace the “$1” section of the final command line with the URL of the Youtube video, playlist, or channel that you want to download. The big difference here is that it will result in Youtube-dl creating an archive of videos already downloaded (To prevent downloading the same video repeatedly), all the videos and their files will be downloaded to their own individual folders, and videos will only be downloaded in the best quality that is available (Instead of the best quality possible). Make sure that the video downloaded by inputting the download command 3-5 times. Sometimes videos disconnect midway through, so you may need to perform this process several times, especially for longer videos. For videos hidden behind an age-gate restriction, there are two ways to bypass this. The first option is to use yt-dlp: https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp It's the same program as Youtube-dl, except it has some QoL changes made to it. HOWEVER, do not use it as a replacement as it doesn't download most regular videos in their entirety for some reason. For the second option, what you do is that you log into your Youtube account and go to a video. Then you can either dump your browser's cookies to the same same folder as the previously downloaded programs, add --cookies FILE after “youtube-dl” and before the rest of the command, and change the word “FILE” to the actual cookies file that you put into the folder; ORyou can open the developer tab in your browser, copy the cookies requested by Youtube, and proceed to make your own cookies file: https://archive.vn/FK3mH If you download too many video in a short time, you may encounter a “HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests” message that blocks your access. This can be bypassed by either filling out the Captcha on the Youtube website and dumping the cookies file afterwards or changing your IP address. Step 4 Despite either method mentioned previously, sometimes there are leftover files that are trash. To delete this trash, search for and delete all “.part” files, audio files, and “.fXXX” video files found in the download folder. The “.part” files are videos that were unable to be fully downloaded for whatever reason and should be reattempted at a later date or downloaded through another method. The audio files and the “.fXXX” video files are just the individual audio and video for each Youtube video. They should automatically be deleted despite either method used, but verify just in case. Step 5 Just re-upload the videos on all of the sites you made an account for. Also, it is advised that all uploaded videos should have this disclaimer in the description: “I did/do not create, publish, nor own the original video.” If you're doing a more thorough upload, here's a breakdown of the files in the video folder. The “.description” files contain all the text from the video's description, and can be opened in Notepad. The image located in the folder is the Youtube thumbnail. The “.json” file is the video's configuration file for annotations. The “.m4a” file is just the video's audio file and should be deleted. The “.mp4” file is the actual video itself; if there are two “.mp4” files, delete the one ending in “.fXXX” as that's just the original video file without any audio. The “.vtt” file(s) is the official subtitles attached to the video. Questions >Why are some video sites with known issues recommended? Because a bigger issue than all of those sites is the fact that Youtube has an artificial monopoly on the video-hosting market. And, a lot of these websites are just following their model and practices because they see it as successful and are not trying to compete. However, as is the goal of this operation, we will begin to see some sites altering their business practices to better complete as their presence increases. >What videos should I be uploading? Advisably, just the videos you like to watch and rewatch. If you cannot think of what videos you should download, just sit back and think about the content you normally search for or listen to on Youtube, and repost that. The point is to just download and repost whatever is relevant to what you watch. Also, make sure that you're not flooding sites with 20 copies of the same video, so do a search on the sites before you upload to them. >What can a small amount of nobodies on the internet accomplish? If 10 anons were to download and upload 10 videos for 10 days straight, that would result in 1000 videos being distributed across other sites in under two weeks. You don't need a large group of people to cause a sudden and dramatic shift. All that's needed is just small steps taken one at a time, that compound into an avalanche. >This isn't going to change anything as people are just going to fall back into their old habits. I appreciate your criticism and advise that you go and rent a movie or game from Blockbuster or Hollywood Video.
The sounds like a pretty good idea, I'll have to go over this a few times since I kind of an office when it comes to video transcoding stuff
These two programs are not retard friendly. Where are the simplified instructions?
>>5552 The simplified version is using youtube-dlg and hoping it isn't broken for no reason, or using freetube to download them.
>>5552 Get the Firefox browser and add this extension. It works well enough for me even if it is limited somewhat. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube_downloader_webx/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search >t. fellow retard who still can't figure out how to use FFmpep correctly

Is there a way to get ytdl/ffmpeg to automatically merge AV1 mp4s and opus webms into webms instead of mkvs? AV1 and opus fit into webbum just fine.
I havent been on jewtube in maybe 5 years now I've been pulling videos off their server for years
>>5562 Thank you. DL and DLP aren't that bad to use. FFMpeg though isn't as friendly as WebMConverter but I managed to try it with this test file. Guess I will learn as I go but I am very glad I can download Nico Nico videos again since the browser extension is broken.
>>5567 You shouldn't need to do anything with FFMpeg as YT-DL will handle everything.
>>5546 You have more libbie pictures?

The easiest and simplest and basicest way to download videos is using yt-dlg, a gui for yt-dl. No ffmpeg, downloads in 720p or 1080p, ready for upload on other sites. Question now is which sites to upload on? Everyone? But which sites are better and beneficial for our goal?
>>5546 Sounds interesting. I may do this for a few Japanese channels I watch, I could at least do the smaller ones. >>5581 It would be nice if you could at least watch the videos without Javashit on whatever sites we choose. I'll have to look into it later.
>>5581 > Question now is which sites to upload on? Everyone? But which sites are better and beneficial for our goal? Does NO ONE read the OP?
I don't know what to download and I do not want to curate 100GB worth of (((Jewtube))) content to see if it's worth preserving or not. Also, it would be a waste of time if we all picked the same things to reupload. Not to mention how redundant it would be to save a shitpost from the webbum threads.

>>5546 >For the second option, what you do is that you log into your Youtube account and go to a video. Then you can either dump your browser's cookies to the same same folder as the previously downloaded programs, add --cookies FILE after “youtube-dl” and before the rest of the command, and change the word “FILE” to the actual cookies file that you put into the folder; ORyou can open the developer tab in your browser, copy the cookies requested by Youtube, and proceed to make your own cookies file: https://archive.vn/FK3mH I had difficulties in the past getting my cookies out of Chrome into the Netscape cookies file format, because the only way I could get them out without manually editing files was in JSON format, which youtube-dl doesn't accept. But I wrote a json-to-http cookie converter bash+jq script for exactly this purpose. I grab my cookies via chrome Cookie-Editor plugin (as seen in pic related), where the "export" feature copies JSON cookies to clipboard; I then pipe my JSON cookies through my script, which turns them into Netscape HTTP cookies, recognizable by the HTTP cookie parser that youtube-dl actually uses. #!/bin/bash # ~/.local/bin/json-to-http.sh while [[ $# -gt 0 ]]; do case $1 in -h|-\?|--help) cat <<-EOF Usage: json-to-http.sh [OPTION] [FILE]... Convert JSON cookies into Netscape HTTP cookies If FILE is unspecified or -, read JSON from standard input -h, -?, --help Show this message and exit -H, --no-header Do not write the Netscape header EOF exit ;; -H|--no-header) no_header=1 ;; --) shift; break ;; -?*) printf 'Unknown option %s\n' "$1" >&2 exit 1 ;; *) break ;; esac shift done (( no_header )) || printf '# Netscape HTTP Cookie File\n' parser=' .[]? | [ .domain, if (.domain | startswith(".")) then "TRUE" else "FALSE" end, .path, if .secure then "TRUE" else "FALSE" end, if .expirationDate then (.expirationDate | floor) else 0 end, .name // .value, if .name then .value else empty end ] | join("\t") ' jq -r "$parser" -- "${@:--}" Note: this program is really just a bash wrapper around a jq script, so you must have jq installed (https://stedolan.github.io/jq/) So essentially my process looks like - log in to youtube - Cookies-Editor -> "export" JSON cookies to clipboard - run: $ youtube-dl --cookies <(xclip -sel c -o | json-to-http.sh) ${any_other_options} "$url"
>>5591 lmao wtf is this shit have you never used a regex engine and jewtube only looks at http headers you can add anything for a cookie as long as forms are complete this is sufficient for 99% of jewdeos a=$( curl 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7YYpnk14VU' \ -H "Cookie: YSC=NIGGER; CONSENT=YES+cb.19840101-06-p0.en+FX+435; GPS=-1984; VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=nigger; PREF=tz=UTC") \ && a=$( echo $a | tr '}' '\n' | grep -o -m 1 'http[^"]*mp4[^"]*' ); curl "$a" >q its just copyright stuff thats protected with a sigcipher which is also easy to get but I only have the c code for that
>>5589 >I don't know what to download Try popular shit I guess, makes sense that if the plan is to attract people that would be the most effective. >>5591 Interesting script, has a bunch of things I'm not familiar with, however if you're going to use an extension might as well use one that already gives you the netscape cookie file already formatted. I personally have done it manually by inspecting the header request in firefox and it's worked great, plus you only have to do it once and then you can keep reusing the same file.

>>5595 The popular stuff won't get people off youtube to alternatives, as they have it all and more there. The key here is to show alt videos, things that are not visible on youtube's front page and thus have to dig deep inside youtube. I'm not talking about pol or alt right stuff, but mainly the people who are browsing these other sites are already sick of youtube's shit, and they don't same frontpage on here too. They want edgy, cool, rad and meme stuff, things that aren't mainstream. 80's anime clips, scene compilations, twitch rauncy clips, gmod videos, just not some lol so random stuff. Fun things that kids want to see not full poltard shit. This includes your favourite clips, things you want to see as well. No point in putting random streamer clips which they can get more of in yt or twitch, but fun things they can get easily here than in them.
>>5595 >might as well use [an extension] that already gives you the netscape cookie file already formatted. i looked for extensions and ways to just export netscape cookies, but i couldn't find anything. >I personally have done it manually by inspecting the header request in firefox but that's manual, and also firefox, which stores cookies differently than chromium. i did actually find search results for getting netscape cookies out of firefox IIRC but not for chromium >>5592 >its just copyright stuff thats protected with a sigcipher which is also easy to get but i only have the c code for that poast

>>5652 >i looked for extensions and ways to just export netscape cookies, but i couldn't find anything. From the yt-dl github page: >In order to extract cookies from browser use any conforming browser extension for exporting cookies. For example, Get cookies.txt (for Chrome) or cookies.txt (for Firefox). https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/get-cookiestxt/bgaddhkoddajcdgocldbbfleckgcbcid/ >and also firefox, which stores cookies differently than chromium How does that matter when I'm inspecting the request header in the pajeet dev tools?

made a tui program over the weekend to watch jewtube videos in vlc and download them ( without gay scripts ) [ https://www69.zippyshare.com/v/SNpvSt5w/file.html ] added dailymotion to test hls streams since its equally cancerous Ill add some more functionality and other sites soon and post source when Im done, only tested on debian but since its a super simple program with no dependencies or libraries I dont think portability is an issue also downloaded videos are in the /tmp folder, I forgot to change it when testing just press the arrow keys and 'm' and youll figure out how to use it
How do I only download videos from a channel during a certain period? There was one channel I used to follow, but nearly all of their content went into the gutter after 2016, so I was wondering what would by the command I would have to use for downloading all of their content made from 2016 and prior, and not have anything afterwards.
>>5546 OP, could you put PeerTube in as well. I think it's actually good bar being JS only
>>6114 Isn't that a Youtube front-end, which defeats the purpose of this?

>>6182 I'm expecting they'll push back against a perceived raid.
>>6183 You mean like on Pixiv, where the rapefugees were intentionally attempting to have the site administration completely alter the kind of material the can be posted?
>>6184 Haven't heard about that, but that's something fearful to consider. I was speaking more from the perspective of a bunch of foreign IPs dumping large amounts of videos onto their serves via automated means that could be interpreted hostilly. Though I imagine circumstances are different, since Pixiv has a largely English-accessible interface (tags aside) while Nico seems much more geared to catering toward its domestic audience, to say nothing of how the existent users might respond -- I hear 2ch isn't fond of foreigners for example. How did Pixiv respond to the rapefugees leaning on them, incidentally?
>>6187 IIRC, bullying them off of the platform.
So given the dislike button hasn't been removed YET why don't we just shit on all the so called US "independent" media? I still have my Google account that I was forced into making when "You"Tube sold out and have been doing exactly that. What's the worst that can happen? Rachel Maddow, Tucker, and that angry Italian will have a shit fit? Good riddance fuck their propaganda.

The problem with LBRY is that if LBRY Inc or odysee decide to remove the video for copyright (which is 99% gonna happen), ppl will need to use the paveloom fork with the blacklists disabled to access content, not many will do that. Or maybe the FastLBRY terminal but that is even more obscure.
>>5546 >Dailymotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/ They allow you to upload videos, but the site no longer allows you to distribute them to the public. >LBRY: https://lbry.com/ You need to use either your credit card, your phone number, or go to their Disord server in order to activate your account so that you can upload content.
>>5546 >NicoNico: https://www.nicovideo.jp/ You're only allowed to upload 50 videos. After that, you have to make a regular payment in order to upload more to the site. >VidLii: https://www.vidlii.com/ You cannot upload anything longer than 25 minutes.
>>7658 >>NicoNico: https://www.nicovideo.jp/ Update on this, turns out that there's another way to upload more than 50 videos, what you have to do do is get premium (Paying) NicoNico members to follow you, according to their FAQ: https://qa.nicovideo.jp/faq/show/10961?site_domain=default What that then plays into is an EXP system, where you then "level up". I don't know what the actually EXP earned is for when you are followed by a premium memeber, but let's assume that each person following you gives you 1 EXP. Once you reach 100 EXP, you upgrade to level two. Now, I do not know what the actually EXP expected to be earned afterwards amounts to, but let's be under the assumption that you need 100 EXP each time to level up. Once you reach level 8, followed by 13, you receive the ability to upload each 20 more (Totally 40 additional) videos that you can upload (A total of 90 videos). However, once you reach level 18, THEN you have unlimited video upload access. So, based on the numbers I threw out on pure speculation, in order to upload an unlimited number of videos on NicoNico, for free, you have to convince 1800 paying NicoNico members to follow your channel.
>>5546 I like where you're going. I've traveled the same train of thought, but what you're proposing is still a half-measure. Screen-scrape EVERYTHING. Videos, music, podcasts, blogs, wikis, paywall content, everything. And use it to build our own network. Done right we could also monetize it and make it sustainable. See if you think this meshes with your idea.
I would like to archive the contents of InfoGalatic, what would be a good tool to do it?
I smell a potential operation! For those who don't know, over the past week, Jewtube videos relating specifically to Bungie's Destiny series have been receiving DMCA claims that have effected high level Jewtubers in the Destiny community and even Bungie themselves. Yesterday, however, one of the culprits behind the DMCA claims revealed himself: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=2W75qipKEVo Under the alias of "Jeremy", the guy claims that he had his Destiny channel false DMCAed; and, after no luck with the counter-notification system, he started filing false claims against high level Destiny Jewtubers for the purpose of forcing Jewtube and Bungie to get involved about all of the false claims and to solve the issue. Whether they will or won't is still up in the air, but that's beside the point. Where the possible operation comes from is that, according to Jeremy, it's incredibly easy to sign up as a representative for a company for the purposes of filing DMCA claims. You just need to provide some bogus info, state that you work for some copyright strike firms, and state which copyright holder said firm representatives. Once you do that, you have free reign to take down anything and everything related to said copyright content without any retribution. Couldn't this be exploited for the purposes digging Jewtubes grave even further? The only flaw that I see is that any attempt by users to send a counter-notification to the DMCA claims you make is that they will have to end up doxxing themselves to you because they are required to fur the purposes of completing a counter-notification.
Just found another video site for potential re-upload. It's called Utreon: https://utreon.com/
>>7981 Update on Utreon, it's essentialy a import site for Jewtube videos. Kind of similar to how LBRY imports content from Jewtube.
Why is Peertube not in the OP? Is Peertube not a better alternative at least because it's actually peer'd as opposed to most "alternatives"?

>>5546 This is relevant to the operation here, but it's more for information overall about how bad Youtube is, here we go, copied from another thread. --------------------------------------------------------- Youtube is currently pushing radical content featuring political youtubers from all sides into searches very heavily even if the topic is unrelated to what you're searching for. They are specifically pushing tribal politics ahead of the elections, which is what created violence pre-trump elections with the colleges. Now all woke sites are going full blast on politics so you cannot escape them. This is how they radicalize people. See it doesn't matter that it's pushing stuff against "woke" shit it matters because on a different computer with a family member with an opposite view, it pushes the exact opposite and he noticed too. I can't get a screencap from his computer for obvious reasons. This needs research. ------------------------------------------- end of copied post
Does anyone know how to setup an independent SMS number through your ocmputer?!? Some of these sites listed require a phone number for "verification" purposes. However, every single one of the sites refuses to use the temp phone numbers that you can find on dozens of sites online. Although, I remember hearing that you can setup your own phone number on your computer for the purposes of receiving SMS message, so I wanted to know what the options are regarding that.
>>8423 buy a sip phone number or something
>>8424 Buy my balls nigga
>>8423 The whole point to requiring your number is so that they could have your data, being able to get a temporary number or a virtual one would defeat the purpose of that now wouldn't it. If something demands your phone number to use it and refuses to function without it, it isn't worth it in the first place.
Cool, but do any of these websites have an API that allows you to upload videos? Doing the uploads by hand sounds like a waste of time. And if there was an upload API, you could just set up a process to download and upload things in the background, which is a lot more efficient.
