A friendly public-service announcement:
youtube-dl supports audio-only
My main use cases for YouTube these days are:
- listening to work music
- watching videos while on a stationary bike
So if I'm craving a song to get into the flow of things, I reluctantly unblock
it from my
/etc/hosts and eventually digress distractedly into watching
actual videos. Disaster!
Who knew that
youtube-dl could solve this problem for me? (Many people. I'm a
little slow here.) Now I just download the music I care about and play it
locally, thus disentangling a legitimate need from the Swamp of Entertainment.
If you don't have
youtube-dl, there are sites that can do this for you.
OnlyMP3 looks reasonably non-sketchy, but I can't vouch for it.
Onward and upward!
