so you’re on youtube and just going around. and you’re watching/listening to something and you’re looking at the sidebar and there’s lots of interesting things. but some are pretty long.
so i have a notepad file open and i copypaste links onto it. then i shamelessly plug a website i use often and have no affiliation with, http://cloudfile.co because i’m big on mirroring videos that might get deleted if an ‘interesting person’ is involved, or it’s prone to copyright strikes, or whatever
and i use the cloudfile thing to grab copies of the videos in the sidebar. i like to have the youtube id in its filename. like for example, ‘[lmtya japanese rc8q-ILTrFc](http://youtu.be/rc8q-ILTrFc)’. i like very short filenames.
in the url field, you can type youtu.be/ before copypasting in the youtube id.
and that’s why i have a ton of dumb .3gp files.
