This is a thread dedicated to the preservation and archival of pony content from around the web.>Why archive
Because our history is our future
Because they don't care about you>Where can I find archived pony stuff?
(TPA file search)https://hobune.stream/tpa-h/channels/
(user-friendly TPA frontend)
Specific YouTube videos by ID:https://hobune.stream/tpa-h/videos/VIDEOIDhttps://tpa.mares.workers.dev/?output=html&id=VIDEOIDhttps://web.archive.org/web/*/http://wayback-fakeurl.archive.org/yt/VIDEOID
If you can't find something, ask in the thread - many anons have private archives. When requesting YouTube content, include the video ID, channel name, and/or video title if possible.>How do I archive stuff?
Supports downloading from YouTube and a fuckload of other sites.
Make sure to use flags that properly save additional metadata (thumbnail, description, .info.json etc).
This is the config I use: https://github.com/rebane2001/sensible-yt-dlp-archive-scripts
yt-dlp also has many GUI frontends available in case the terminal is too scary for you.
Tube Archivist: https://github.com/tubearchivist/tubearchivist
A user-friendly self-hostable website for archiving videos. I have not used it myself so I don't know if it is any good, but I've heard good things about it.
You can also link content to be archived in the thread if you'd like other anons to take care of it.>Useful resources
