Old scores and what to do with them

Hey everyone, so I'm starting to run into some data storage issues. I was going to start uploading my videos to youtube. I'm just curious, is there a way to re-download your videos from youtube if you need them again? I've never needed to so I don't know if you can. Adding to that, @Jace Hall , is it possible to re-download videos posted to TG if you needed them. Just curious?

    Skip the middleman, and just upload your stuff to Vzaar. Refer to my wall post, for a demonstration of how useful this idea can be.

    DL from YT is simple. There is a DL option in the video manager section. One of the little dots next to the vid. I'll post a screen shot if you need it.

    For random YT vids I use the DOWNLOAD button under the video.

    If it's my video on my page I go here.

    How large are your video files? How many MB/s ? You could always re-encode them with more compression / lower framerate and remove the original.

    Hard drives and USB enclosures are very affordable these days. $100 should get you a few TB of storage.

    I just burn them all to DVD. Many are too large for one DVD so I use 7-zip to compress and split into multiple chunks. I use 440MB which equates to 10 chunks per DVD for the massive ones with a little bit of wiggle room - anything above 440MB gets treated this way. I then have 13TB of external storage and 5TB internal storage - lots of juggling room.

    One of the(few...)nice things about my "supercomputer" is that it has slots for three more harddrives, a solid-state and two more mechanical ones.

    Just thinking as space gets cheaper and cheaper over time, you may regret deleting anything, so I say try to go for more storage, external or whatever, eventually we'll have tb's OF tb's to work with...

    I'm going to do what I can to not delete things. I suppose an external hard drive may be in the making. Guess I'll start referee-ing basketball games again.

    Classic computer advice: make a backup and then use the backup as little as possible to avoid introducing new errors. (I.e., don't rely on an attached hard drive not to fail.)

    YT will come in handy if space in your internal OR external HD is still going to be an issue. I've uploaded 4 and 5GB videos as long as 11 hours and the files I DL afterwards were only about 1.6-1.8GB. YT has some decent compression technology. In fact, I usually upload to TY then DL to upload any submissions here.
