I gotta say, youtube-dl is freakin awesome. Syndicated back my videos from Youtube and Vimeo. Worked like a charm. It also converts formats and places subtitles in the desired output format next to it. Finding out how to get all into HTML5 was the most work [for me] while the server crunched the numbers. No need to strain my poor internet connection at home at all 😀


Well, I guess this is it for Franz. I really liked this and it worked fine for me for a year. After an update all my configured services are gone and there is no longer a way to reconfigure services without creating an account with Franz.

Hello Pidgin, my old friend. I’ve come to talk with you again.

I found a ticket on Github about the issue here: https://github.com/meetfranz/franz/issues/984 but it never got fixed or even a statement from it’s developer so I assume it’s simply the end of the journey.
