Idea for somebody else to implement, if they haven't implemented it already:
Peertube instance that (in addition to uploading files) lets you paste a Youtube link, that instance downloads the specified video from Youtube, and makes it available on the Peertube network.
This could go a long way towards preserving a lot of worthy user-generated content that Youtube is holding hostage.
@js290 Please read what I tooted again and analyse whether downloading Youtube videos using VLC is in any way a substitute for what I said.
@h and the next iteration of that idea, input a YouTube account name and grab all videos of the account. To make it easy for creators to move their creations over.
@Chocobozzz Amazing 😃
