YouTube downloader sites keep getting censored by ISPs, especially lately. I imagine a lot get fully taken down by Google themselves over time. For an example of a censored one, my ISP blocked Peggo.tv, claiming it wasn't secure and didn't give me the option to access it 'at my own risk'. The site eventually got updated and I can access it again, though it just seems like a snake vs newt situation. I used to rely on VideoGrabby, but they went a long time bending the knee to Google's threats and I haven't tried it again for some time. I want to download a reliable video downloader, but I'm paranoid as shit about downloading programs I'm not familiar with.I keep getting 403 forbidden when I try to access any archive site? Is this a problem with my browser or something else?
I tried YouTube DL today from the links here and all I got was errors being thrown up that said ""token" parameter not in video info for unknown reason", and this happened with two different videos, including an old grocery store commercial someone uploaded a decade ago.
The other two services in the linked post seem to have died (or I would have bothered to optimize those bookmarks), but here's a slightly optimized set of bookmarklets for archive .li and .today (it looks like the forum changes archive .is to use .li instead):If you guys are too lazy to copy-paste links to archive.li/tweetsave/whatever, use these bookmarklets instead:
save the shit in the code tag as bookmark and click them when you open a page you'd like to archiveCode:
nullso that JS on the archiver-site can't affect the page you opened the bookmarklet from; also, it's slightly faster to use the global
locationobject directly rather than as a property of
window, but it's also a good idea to call methods of the
windowobject as methods rather than as ordinary functions, which is why I replaced
encodeURIComponentis a global function, it's part of JS itself rather than specifically a method of the
windowobject, so that one should be called as an ordinary function).
Not exactly archival tools (since this is saving e-evidence directly to your drive, rather than keeping a snapshot for future (e-)generations), but does anybody have any good tools/tips for downloading images from Twitter posts with multiple images? Because with a post with only one image, you can just right click to save the image, while with multiple images, you either have to save the whole webpage or use some inspect element bullshit to get the image URL.
PS. Fuck Twitter, now and forever.
In terms of twitter media, you can use this to break it all down into a zip or individually. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but it works for me.untested but this page has some suggestions: https://nocodewebscraping.com/how-to-download-videos-and-pictures-from-twitter/
I've had trouble getting animated gifs off of twitter in the past, but i haven't looked too deep into how to get it to work. is there an archival tools wiki or something along those lines somewhere? i'd be surprised if not.
Check this thread:I know archive.li/.fo exists but I'm trying to find a website I know about that runs a browser instance and let's you sign into various accounts and archive that as well as lets other people view and scroll through what you've archived. I've tried searching and found nothing but I know that I first saw the website posted here.
