Careful what you download to avoid copyright infringement.
it is not what you download, it is what you spread!
Intellectual property is a mad subject these days best to archive even 100% original content channels - you NEVER KNOW. Will this Mozilla addon do an entire channel automatically? Thanks for the share
I hate all this copyright Stuff but I do feel good when I to pay for my Kindle books. I will most certainly pay for the 4K Downloader if it works out that it does what I want it to do. I dont really download youtube titles for permanent storage as I only have 500 gigs... I like to USB stick them and sneeker net them over to my 32" TV.
Try to search on sourceforge where you can find a lots of tools.
4K Downloader turns the Youtube clips into mp4 which I can play via the USB port on the TV.
I am thinking turning a Raspberry PI into a Media PC and connecting it soon..though
I'm not entirely sure what the market is like these days (in terms of whether they all have those features now, just to varying degrees) however I really wouldn't bother with paying extra for a HDD on your TV or something that calls itself 'smart', as long as the picture isn't any better I wouldn't bother. Most 'smart' TVs I've come across filter Youtube search results for example like an xbox 360 does. Good luck finding a proper browser in a 'built in' device, it's as bad as portable devices.
If you haven't paid for the full version let me recommend youtube-dl.
It's command line based but gets the job done in one script.
Just cd into the youtube-dl directory and enter:
youtube-dl -i -c "URL OF CHANNEL"
the most annoying thing about youtube is when you're about to watch a video, most commonly a music clip on your phone or tablet, and there is this message: "the owner of this video did not make it available to watch on cell phones. Add to your list to watch later on a PC." Foxtrot Uniform!!
Just make sure you have available large space on your hardisk
