This tool serves lbry to parse youtube channels that want their content mirrored on LBRY.
The tool downloads the entire set of public videos from a given channel, publishes them to LBRY and populates our private database in order to keep track of what's publishes. With the support of said database, the tool is also able to keep all the channels updated.
- lbrynet SDK https://github.com/lbryio/lbry/releases (We strive to keep the latest release of ytsync compatible with the latest major release of the SDK)
- a lbrycrd node running (localhost or on a remote machine) with credits in it
- make sure daemon is stopped and can be controlled through
systemctl(find example below)
- extract the ytsync binary anywhere
- add the environment variables necessary to the tool
- export SLACK_TOKEN="a-token-to-spam-your-slack"
- export SLACK_CHANNEL="youtube-status"
- export YOUTUBE_API_KEY="youtube-api-key"
- export LBRY_WEB_API="https://lbry-api-url-here"
- export LBRY_API_TOKEN="internal-apis-token-for-ytsync-user"
- export LBRYCRD_STRING="tcp://user:password@host:5429"
- export AWS_S3_ID="THE-ID-LIES-HERE"
