Youtube-dl automatically download in .m4v format

Thu, 06/21/2018 - 08:45

I'm using Youtube-dl to automatically download my "watch later" playlist on youtube and sync that directory to my iPad so i can watch the video's offline in the train. Problem is I cannot force the video format and sometimes Youtube-dl picks Mkv which my iPad can't play. Any way to "force" youtube-dl to download in a ipad friendly format ?

Transfer files publicly on the command line

I prefer this to Dropbox and the rest:

It's a shame that the server-side part is written in Go, but they at least give us the option to run it ourselves.

Workgroup Password/windows updates/backups

Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:38

Would like to remotely control/sync computers. Sync: passwords (same user, different workstations) that force an update every period (via local group policy) and would like to push windows updates out onto a (slow) network. Also, issue remote commands to back certain folders up. Would love a scripting solution. No AD. Don't want hand holding, just suggestions about methods, approaches and tools that would be efficient as per those three goals. Thanks!
