Occasional youtube-dl user, here. I’m also using Aperture—but any RSS reader will do—and Nitter, to follow Twitter folk via RSS. Now wondering if, if Microsub’s a step too far, I could make my Aperture fork output regular RSS for a specific channel, which youtube-dl could then consume.

    The answer’s way simpler, really. I can simply use Micropub to post video links to my website, and run youtube-dl on the resulting “feed”—a plain-text list, in fact, is all it needs. (Guess what I’ve just built!)

    A daily cron job on my severely underpowered media server does the rest. Also, I’m currently using a hardcoded “bearer token” to access the not-so-public list, but there’s really no reason to not expose an actual (h-)feed for these posts.
