[qtube] Webif front end for youtube-dl

I checked 20 minutes after the recording finished. Auto log shows scans and the decrypt and shrink processes were added to the queue as expected.

Although the queue page refreshes itself every minute or so nothing was processed.

The box then went to sleep (power saving).

30 minutes later auto processing still not started working through the queue.

Any ideas?

I think I have identified the problem.

In the middle of my queue was a youtube film which had a very long url string. Once I deleted this from the queue, it started running.

I am sorry, I can't recall what it was, so that we can recreate, but there seems to a restriction in the url field length and presumably a validation process before processing the queue.

This is the section showing the scan before I deleted the problem download. The list of Qtube items has been truncated before the very long URL that appears to be the cause the issue.

Is there a way to get it to download to a specific directory ?
The download directory is set in the youtube wrapper script from the youtube-dl CF package. However if you specify a different output parameter in the options field I'd expect it to override that setting. Try something like (for HDR) this to use dirName under the normal Video directory:
Code:
-o "/mnt/hd2/My Video/dirName/%(title)s.%(ext)s"

Unfortunately that gives
ERROR: fixed output name but more than one file to download
Yotube-dl doesn't like having duplicate -o specifications in the options

I could probably fix in qtube by avoiding using the wrapper code.

With apologies to prpr, the wrapper could be modified to deal with it.
Code:
#! /bin/sh
# youtube-dl wrapper

# check for output parameters - only 1 allowed
outdir=
for arg in "$@"; do
    case $arg in
    -o|--output)
        outdir=$arg
        break
        ;;
    esac
done

# add model-specific default output parameter if needed
if [ -n "$outdir" ]; then
    # caller overrides output
    outdir=
  else
    if [ `cat /etc/model` = HDR ]; then
        outdir='/mnt/hd2/My Video'
    else
        outdir='/media/drive1/Video'
    fi                              
    outdir="$outdir/%(title)s.%(ext)s"
fi                                           

# shell syntax: ${var:-stuff}->null if var null or unset, else expansion of stuff
python /mod/bin/youtube-dl --config-location /mod/etc/youtube-dl.conf ${outdir:+ -o "$outdir"} "$@"
How about setting up a bind mount like /media/[Video] in the next CF to simplify scripts like this? Or is it too late?

No need for apologies. My bash scripting skills are fairly limited, so the thanks are due to you.
I'll package that up as well.
Great. Though I do keep a pedant hat nearby ready for use and would point out that a script starting with #!/bin/sh should be just a plain POSIX standard Bourne shell script, as that one is. Bash is a luxury in the Humax CF world.

Shellcheck is helpful, even if it also has a pedant hat.

Absolutely! Too many people do not know what is POSIX, what is ksh88/93 and what is bash. The Humax default shell is busybox ash anyway, and this script needs to use syntax compatible with that. I would not be tempted to change the shebang line to invoke bash, it's much bigger than ash and it's doubtful that you need the extensions anyway.

Too right. Me being one of them. Are these our faults or those of the people who write them?
There are too many damned shells and I'm damned if I can be bothered to learn all the differences, or even all the names, any more.
Whatever, I can never remember the flamin' syntax of things that ought to be simple but aren't, or don't seem to follow natural flow. Then I get irritated with it (and me).

Anyone who has written Unix shell scripts will sympathise. But we can let the computer can take the strain, instead of fiddling about with the script until it works. As I said,

...

For instance in my youtube-dl wrapper above, it tells me that instead of `cat /etc/model`, we should have had "$(cat /etc/model)" (whether in [[d]a]sh or bash). There is a good rationale for this but it's an example of what I meant by its 'pedant hat' . Much more to the point, the good news is that there were no other diagnostics.

Multiple shell languages seems to be a case of "we can, so we will". Best to standardise on one - but if machine capacity comes into it so that a full implementation won't fit, the compromise means it is not possible to stamdardise!

Exactly why I always have SHELLCHECK_OPTS="-e SC2006" amongst others : )

Seems to have stopped working in both real time and queue, I get the message shown.

Tried two boxes (both auto-updated to latest version of QTube when I opened webif), and a dozen or so iplayer links.

:( Oh dear, not sure what has happened following the lastest youtube-dl
Must be something I'm doing wrong since youtube-dl itself is working

Try putting something in the options field (-v) because it is handling null options strings differently
