"Brady Haran over at Numberphile has brought us an amazing experimental track based on Pi. Everything follows patterns of the irrational number, and the result is a mind-blowing progressive rock song. This expands upon the concept first tried with the Golden Ratio song. Notice the length of the video?"

    I will not touch anything Google. Upload it somewhere else.

    I use 'youtubedown' to just grab the raw vid. (My home directory is pretending to be no-longer-spinning rust currently, so don't have my usual browser paranoia settings, and won't touch their javascript with a barge pole, so am doing everything via youtubedown presently. This is also why I'm not logged in - memorised password for the site inaccessible.)

    Someone is giving something away... free... and you won't touch it? I can't imagine why you have a problem with Google... do tell!

      It's not free, you pay with your personal information or browsing habits. Some don't think it's a fair trade, as is their right.

        Guess they have never heard of no-script, Ad Blocker Plus, or better Privacy...

        Something else they may not have heard of... TANSTAAFL-- There ain't no such thing as a free lunch... or a "free video" or even "free software" -- somebody pays. If you are too lazy to minimize or fully mitigate that cost for yourself then that is your problem and not mine.

        Of course if you have a better idea concerning hosting I'd love to hear that too...

        You see I too create things... Writings [blogspot.com], Music [blogspot.com], A Quote book [blogspot.com] and a a Markov Chain Quote book [blogspot.com]. You will notice that they are all hosted on Blogspot, a Google site. Why? Simple. No one is interested enough in covering my costs and expenses for the things I create... and frankly I don't have the money to give away free culture AND free bandwidth... So the price that someone pays for not covering those expenses is what Google free services cost. Facebook is a cesspit relative to Google so you get what you get.

        Don't want to pay? That's fine... I certainly don't expect you to listen or read the things I do... You are free to choose the things you wish to read or listen to... But I am not obliged to provide them to you on a "non-encumbered" site or service... since you are not paying my expenses.

        While I too miss the passing into history anon FTP and GOFER I have to work with what is...

          Oh, I myself think it's quite a good deal and even have Google host email for several domains using Google Apps. I think it's a great deal, but not everyone does. There also seems to be a great deal of anti-Google FUD going around these days, so the number of people avoiding them is growing. They don't seem to realize that unless they host everything themselves, all of their other options tend to be worse.

    There is a link to the song on iTunes in the YouTube description. I'll put it here so you don't have to go to YouTube to find it https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/progressive-inst rumental-single/id839814816?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 [apple.com]

    You could use Youtube-dl to download, would that help?

    Give me a link to an FTP site (or similar) that you trust, and I'll stick the cclive'd .mp4 files there.
