Yeah, I was worrying that I was getting into the obsessive collecting thing that I used to do with P2P, but I've actually been playing back a fair bit of yt-dl stuff over the last few months. What I could do with now is a searchable database by artist, composer, date, piece, etc. The longer I leave it the bigger that job gets.
My downloads are motivated by not wanting to sit in front of a computer monitor every time I want to listen to music. So I have playlists that I load into VLC. The sound gets patched through to my stereo. Or at least it did. It blew up a few weeks ago. Next time I go to Adelaide I take it along to get fixed.

One day I'll get a smart TV to patch the video through there as well. Or maybe a set-top box will do the job. I ought to look into that.

Have you noticed that Youtube has negotiated copyright permissions for a lot of the music and film clips on behalf of Youtube uploaders? A few years ago I uploaded an excerpt I ripped from a DVD of Bozzetto's Allegro non Troppo. It was blocked world wide by both the copyright owner of the video and the copyright owner of the music track and I got a slap on the wrist in the form of a threat that I'd be suspended if I do that sort of thing again. A few months ago the clip was unblocked. This one:

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Thanks for that. I didn't know that film - which I've now 'saved' to my HD. :D

Allegro Non Troppo is kind of a parody of Walt Disney's Fantasia. The DVD is well worth getting. The edition I bought includes a second disk filled with extras, also well worth watching. Seems to be out of print now, but there still are some around on Ebay, Amazon, etc.

Google has been my browsers' home page since it started over 20 years ago. Wikipedia is my initial entry point for information after that. Youtube (yes, I know Google owns it) is increasingly becoming a treasure trove of music I like, especially since whoever owns DG now has become less anal about keeping its products out of it. It is also becoming quite good at providing documentaries for free, and a few professional youtubers are well worth listening to.

Then there are all those kitty videos. Now, if Youtube combined kitty videos with the sound of classical music I'd be well and truly at its mercy.

Oh. Wait.

^^^ Smokeeeey



By the way, my problem with youtube-dl is fixed. Updating the program did the job. It just took a while because "youtube-dl -U" kept replying with another error message. In the end I had to delete it manually and install the most recent version. While I was at it I updated ffmeg, so I don't really know where the problem was.

:tup: I was particularly taken with Kaspszyk's efforts here to balance the innate tension between the classical and romantic elements in the piece. It's a strange concerto - Chopin not really having the orchestration chops to match his expertise at writing for piano - but between them Argerich and Kaspszyk produce a overall cohesive, and at times quite effervescent performance.
