Okay, I was able to download all of the videos from the Alt-Right Playbook, in case any more of them get blocked/age-gated.
The playlist is originally here on YT:
I guess I need a PeerTube account somewhere. Not sure how Innuendo Studios will look at some random dude uploading it to random video hosting sites, but it's too good/important a series to worry about that right now. I will ping them and inform them of this, of course.
@rysiek it is antithetical to YouTubes business model. I'm surprised it hasn't been taken down by the various systems available.
git clone https://github.com/yt-dlp/yt-dlp.git
python3 yt_dlp/__main__.py P55t6eryY3g
You will need the Python programming language.
I watched this becode it became age restricted and I see no reason for that restriction, so I have uploaded it to PeerTube https://peertube.co.uk/videos/watch/940eaee8-8d87-4af8-ae64-c3a5eb5252eb
@river haven't found any other source yet. next time I see it I'll download it (should have done that immediately).
the author got pinged on multiple channels, we shall see what happens.
I don't have an YT account nor do I want to have one. So no, it doesn't "work fine", and this is exactly what "the fuck" I'm talking about 👍
@rysiek Shocking. His entire "Alt-Right Playbook", series is excellent...this smells like a troll-y copyright strike.
@rysiek I hadn't heard of that before but did find a watchable link...
@mxtthxw not clicking anything with "MGTOW" in the link:
@mxtthxw I would not have assumed it is. these "manosphere" acronyms multiply like rabbits. hard to keep track.
@mxtthxw and to be fair if I don't find this video anywhere else in decent quality, I might use the link you sent to download it (if I figure out how, youtube-dl doesn't seem to bite).
So, thank you!
@rysiek You can always contact Innuendo Studios directly and request permission.
(Assuming you can find a contact address.)
@rysiek Ian Danskin posts transcripts of all his video essays to the Innuendo Studios Tumblr: https://innuendostudios.tumblr.com/tagged/video-essay/
I can't speak to the ethics of reuploading nor to his opinion of the practice, but if you're archiving these to preserve them, I would encourage going through and grabbing the transcripts as well.
