Listening to your favorite song is as easy as going to YouTube (or even better Invidious), Soundcloud or Spotify and stream everything right from your PC or mobile device. Millions of artists and tracks are just waiting for you to discover them. However, streaming is not necessarily the best choice for you and here’s why. Simply put, you don’t own any of the content that you are streaming, and you have no guarantee that the song you liked today will still be there tomorrow. You have no say in how those platforms handle copyright, DMCA-takedowns or Content-ID. Remember back in the 2000s, when you went to the store and purchased an album on CD? As long as you owned the CD, you also owned the content, and nobody was able to take it away from you again (unless you became yet another victim of disc rot). In this article we’ll be utilizing youtube-dl (and/or yt-dlp) to get back to the good ol’ days when we had full ownership of the media we are consuming, without losing the comforts and convenience of such streaming-sites.
