    Project mention: I'm collecting data.. if you have a second router (UniFi or Google WiFi) please read this! | reddit.com/r/tmobileisp | 2021-04-20

    When I run the child process command in the command prompt it works perfectly fine but not when using it in my code. Also when I run it in command prompt it opens up a new window which may be the reason why it is not able to run the parameters but I currently don't know how to do that. I am using the executable from this github: https://github.com/nilaoda/N_m3u8DL-CLI/blob/master/README_ENG.md

  • GitHub repo axel

    Lightweight CLI download accelerator (by axel-download-accelerator)

    Project mention: Give your Mac (imaginary) unlimited storage thanks to Disk Utility’s bug | news.ycombinator.com | 2020-12-26

    That said, "download accelerators" were also clever programs that would create multiple connections with the origin and use Range headers to download different parts of the file.

    Wonder why I don't hear of them anymore. Maybe because server upload bandwidth is more often generous enough to saturate your bandwidth these days?

    You can do this from the command line with axel: https://github.com/axel-download-accelerator/axel

  • GitHub repo edx-dl

    A simple tool to download video lectures from edx.org (and other openedx sites)
