An application I'm working on that downloads VidLii videos, along with all their metadata, icons, and previews, as well as the ability to download an entire channel in one go.

Hey, by any chance interested at looking into building some kind of video management software for uploading videos to existing sites and eventually a self-hostable server script under a libre-free license? As you already have a downloader, that could very much contribute to do online video work much better, so I could download existing individual videos or whole channels to transfer them over to other sites, as well as building an archive.

@termer If you upload to the Internet Archive, please consider to donate to them regulary. To me, it looks like the current US government won't consider to substantially back them for the long term for the public service and preservation of culture they're offering. GPLv3 is excellent, except that you might want to make it AGPLv3 + any later so people can't run modified versions of it on a server without offering users and eventually you their improvements, extensions and bugfixes, effectively turning it proprietary when run on a server. + any later to go to a version 4 if necessary because of copyright law changes in the next 70/140 years after your death.

@skreutzer I would donate, but I haven't the money. I can barely keep up my website as it is. I wish I could, though. As for the GPLv3, I might change it if it is going to be a problem, or modify it for better preservation.

@ScottBeebiWan I will once I finish it. I still have to add channel downloading support. Channels with with version 2 channel style are a problem, since they do not have a /videos path, so I might need to search the javascript to find where the user's videos are. The API also only turns over the 16 last videos by an author making it version inconvenient.
