What's the best way to download music off Youtube? Comrade 08/22/2020 (Sat) 17:26:04 No. 4337 [Reply] [Last]
There's various sites/programs that do this but I haven't really found a good one yet. Features I would like: - 320kbps - Capture of a still of the video as song art - Download whole playlists automatically - No daily limit or whatever As a bonus, are there any applications that automatically convert a folder full of mp3s into versions of those mp3s with levelled audio? IE, all the songs will become roughly the same volume. I know there might be better ways to organise your music but I like to do it like this. Thanks in advance people. Currently I use 4K Youtube to MP3 but it has a daily limit and no automatic playlist support (without a paid license).

>>4343 youtube-dl itself just uses ffmpeg in the background.
>>4353 Never thought about this trick before, pretty neat. But I like to see clearly what I'm actually doing, you could have wrong (and sensitive) text in your clipboard for example. I do use xsel for a script that takes whatever text is in clipboard then makes substitutions with sed and puts it back into the clipboard. So I can for example copy a youtube/twitter/instagram URL and convert it into an invidio.us/nitter/bibliogram one with a single keyboard shortcut.
yt compress every audio, maybe the output format is 320 but in reality its much lower. I suggest the p2p network soulseek, or the browser addon 'spotify & deezer downloader', you dont have to subscribre to spotify or anything, only login with fb or whathever

Gentoo Comrade 08/18/2020 (Tue) 14:48:56 No. 4206 [Reply] [Last]
Let's have a general for discussion about the most based OS there ever was. What builds are you using? Use flags? Are you on a Stacking or tiling windows manager? Lay it all down. Talk about optimization and help out more, less experienced, gentoo users.

>>4632 It wasn't intended to be a rhetorical question. Why might someone do Gentoo over Linux From Scratch?
>>4630 Linux from scratch is the dumbest most boring thing one could do. It's litterally a gentoo installation where instead of using portage you go to the page of all the various components and projects and manually download them and compile them. Maybe it made sense before gentoo was a thing but I really don't see the point now, you learn nothing over a stage 3 installation
>>4637 Gentoo actually has some uses, it can be an excellent base for a specialized distro: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Distributions_based_on_Gentoo LFS on the other hand is just a hobby project whose only goal is building the system to learn about linux, and not actually using it. It's like a school project.
>>4637 LFS is actually unmaintainable as a computer that you would actually use because just keeping the packages up to date would take all of your free time to download, compile and debug. LFS is something you do out of curiosity in a VM, and then wipe the VM image afterwards. It doesn't exist to create a thing that serves a useful purpose.

PC build Anonymous Comrade 11/21/2019 (Thu) 22:06:26 No. 2265 [Reply] [Last]
Just building a semi-cheap PC to replace my old one I built 3 years ago, it's not really meant to be a brand new state-of-the-art computer but just one that's supposed to have the same power as my old one but that runs better. Also yes I'm using Intel because my past 4 computers have used Ryzen or AMD and milage has varied, intel is shit but at least it's shit that won't turn into a nuke like my AMD did(it was their very first 8-core) and also I'm trying to skimp on money so while expensive and probably not the best performance I at least know it won't require a fucking swimming pool for a cooling unit.

>>4189 Are there any noticeably leaking or bulging radial electrolytic capacitors on your motherboard? It can be up to like a $50 repair to order the soldering iron, solder with rosin/flux core, replacement capacitors, tax & shipping and up to a couple hours to replace them yourself.
>>4193 I didn't know that, thanks for the tip. I checked and didn't see anything out of the norm, the only two I could even find in the entire machine were on the graphics card and they looked picture perfect except for some dust. Which sucks, because I already have the solder and the iron from a few induction heaters I made last year
So I originally asked for PC parts advice back in January(I think it was this thread too lel) for a budget PC. This is what I eventually settled on. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/FYCTdm Now that one is stranded on a different continent for another year and I'll be going back to it in about 10-12 months but in the meantime I'm stuck with my 5 year old PC back home . This one doesn't have to be budget like the last one(I got that one for free thanks to "technical" issues). So that build worked great for the most part, the hard drive; perfect. Might need an additional 2 or 4tb SSDs for storing games and stuff. The processor; I personally had no complaints since the one I'm currently using is an old AMD fx 8320 and oh boy it's bad so the i5 in comparison was great. I don't know whether to get over the mental scarring from the fx series and get an AMD Ryzen or play it safe with Intel since I found out Intel pays Epic to sabotage AMD performance and stuff but otherwise AMD seems the better option all round, dunno what to do with that. Motherboard; hot fucking garbage, I don't even want to buy an MSI motherboard ever again. I actually went through 2 of those motherboards since the first turned out some circuits were fried on arrival and the second one had some of the RAM slots broken so I had to stick the two of them in the inefficient positions side-by-side and eventually due to NewEgg basically saying it was cause of bent pins after I shipped it back to them and MSI refusing to help cause lel the UK isn't in the EU or NA jurisdictions of their offices my bank eventually got the trade protection office to step in and refund my entire order cause NewEgg was violating the Consumer's Rights Act by not offering a refund at all(The CRA says basically if the consumer wants a refund they gotta get one, if the good was damaged you can only offer a reduced refund not entirely void it). RAM: It's 16 gigs of RAM, hasn't changed much in 10 odd years. PSU; could be more powerful for what I have in mind. GPU; I didn't notice anything wrong with it, only issue was that the VRAM was rather low at 4 gigs and this kept causing some issues with CPU intensive games for some reason. So say I'm building a new PC in a week or two, what parts should I improve of off of my last one? I know Nvidia is dropping the 3000 series in 3 days and I dunno whether to just fuck it and go all in on one of those or keep it to a 2000 series that will drop in price after the launch. Also the CPU; play safe or go big? Also this build is 100% for gaming, don't need to worry about school work or anything this time around. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.
>>4733 if you have a 60hz 1080p monitor and don't want ray tracing then 1660S should be enough to maintain 60 fps avg even in poorly optimized games like rdr2, gtav, ac:o (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnUcuCZ-iMY ) if 9600K is the same price as 9600KF then you should choose 9600K since having the integrated graphics is like having a spare tyre and one less troubleshooting step in case the gpu dies if you're getting that 212 evo cooler make sure it's even (ex. not having one edge of the front of cpu sticking out not making contact with the cooler) and you screw it really tightly, it makes a big difference in fan noise / temperature (and be patient installing it, it's the biggest pain in the ass)
>>4794 I just want straight upgrades across the board, not simply just getting the streamlined versions of the stuff I already have(the 1600, while great compared to my old specs is already in the dust but then again everything PC related is redundant 2 months after release) oh and I know how the 212 works since this is about the third or fourth time using it and each time it required a different setup for the Moba CPU slot. Magnetic screwdrivers are a fucking lifesaver when the screws keep bouncing up and you feel like you're about to rip the board in half while trying to get them all even. Took about 2 hours to get it in proper last time and that was mostly spent trying to get the screws in the right spot since the "X" shape of the screws mean one side had trouble going down always.

>>4309 I'm scared of going to prison. Even though I know the chances are slim that I would get caught it was still the fear of it holding me back.
>>4331 A) Know what they can use to detect that you're in their systems B) Know what they can use to link it back to you From these two points you narrow down the chance of being caught. You could hack an old machine, for example, since reconnaissance is the most important part of hacking, and you got access to it all. In case you get caught they wouldn't think it was an insider. But be safe, if you don't master what you are doing, you'll be caught.
>>4331 How do we persuade and/or help you, anon?
>>4331 If you prepare the rootkit beforehand and put it in some kind of simple tool (like an addon for a text editor or something dumb) and then release it anonymously in public, you get plausible deniability for it. So when they ask you "hey, our data got hacked and you unlocked the door when it happened" you can say you just compiled this cool github thing that would've helped your workflow. You might not even get fired for it then, since this shit happens all the time anyways.

Anons,brainlet here: could you give me any update on the state of this project in layman terms?
Added the normalization step to convert both ways between yt and invidio feeds. Added a host score summary to rate hosts, in addition to the time deltas >>4615 already printed by the worker threads. http://0x0.st/iImn.py The score summary columns are the number of download attempts, the total host score and the per-download host score. The latter is the sort column and a lower score is better. The operation selectors are g=get n=normalize m=merge. The order is ignored and they only control which steps of the get-normalize-merge pipeline are enabled. To get the feeds, normalize to invidious.snopyta.org and merge: $ python3 rsstool.py ids gnm feedids.txt invidious.snopyta.org | tee log.txt 12:07:30 worker 3 GET item 3 UCqilwNYrajK0djOx3sIh01A try 1 host 3 invidious.fdn.fr [...] 12:07:38 +7.0s worker 0 OK 2513 -> 25158 bytes for https://invidious.snopyta.org/feed/channel/UCSrad2ah3GKKDLK3_j0hogg 0 failed, 12 ok, 12 total, 3 extra score 3 1.2 0.4 www.youtube.com score 3 2.4 0.8 invidious.fdn.fr score 2 1.7 0.9 yt.iswleuven.be score 2 3.3 1.7 invidiou.site score 1 1.8 1.8 invidious.site score 1 7.0 7.0 invidious.snopyta.org

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

Added xsl stylesheet support controlled by C.ADD_STYLESHEET and a simple demo stylesheet to view the merged feed in a browser without needing an rss client. http://0x0.st/iI4b.tgz To use another xsl stylesheet move rss.xml out of the way and replace it with the other one. To get, normalize and merge the sample feed ids run: $ python3 rsstool.py ids gnm demo-ids.txt invidious.snopyta.org | tee log.txt Drag merged2.xml onto a browser tab to see a summary of the merged feed. If you get 'merged feed comrade' and word soup instead your browser has not applied the stylesheet. Check dev tools -> console to see whether cors, noscript or similar blocked the xsl. If you see 'CORS request not HTTP' you can toggle privacy.file_unique_origin in about:config at your option, then reload the feed tab. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS/Errors/CORSRequestNotHttp Remember to set C.USER_AGENT to some Apple device user agent string. https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=iphone%20user%20agent%20string
Added expandable media:description blocks to the xslt view of the merged feed. Added lazy loading of images to the normalization step to keep the browser from spamming the host with image requests. http://0x0.st/iIEB.tgz
