The 'savevideo' bot that helped people to download and save videos from Reddit has been ordered to shut down or face a lawsuit.

Bots facing lawsuits… ah the future of mankind. This is what we all dreamt in the 70s, 80s and 90s.

They should open source it if it isn’t already.

I checked the browser requests on a reddit video, and they intentionally split the audio and video feeds to make it difficult to export.

I wonder if that is rather to make it so that people scrolling through with the sound off aren’t pulling down sound unnecessarily.

I don’t get why people don’t just use youtube-dl rather than flooding the comments

Some people don’t even know how to run command-line apps (or can’t, because they only use an iOS device) or where to even get started, just summoning a bot is simple and doesn’t require a lot of knowledge.

YouTube-DL works well for me, but I understand not everyone wants to deal with that.

It’s interesting to see that Reddit’s comment was that they didn’t send the litigation threats.
