Subject: I’ve used qbittorrent for years but recently I’ve wanted a more automated setup. I see a lot of ppl using deluge with sonarr/radarr/jackett. Qbittorrent checks all the boxes for me and it’s written in c++ which imo is faster than python (deluge). Lmk what are some thoughts from the community

Subject: Worried about the future of piracy
I usually live under a rock when it comes to tech news so my views might not be accurate.
Browsing Torrentfreak and seeing all those file uploaders, torrent downloaders being sued and sites getting taken down gives me a serious doomer mindset. It makes me want to hoard tons of data.
I used to hoard a lot of movies but I have severely cut down since I don't watch most movies a second time. Unfortunately, I'm having to cut down again.
But, news from torrentfreak makes me feel like the piracy apocalypse might come any moment and I better start buying HDDs to store as much pirated content for later use as possible.
Ofc that's not possible. I want to get more insight from you guys here who are more up to speed.

Subject: Y'all asking if Vanced is piracy...
It is not!
Ad-blocking is not piracy. I can switch to other channels on TV when one channel has ads, right? Vanced just made that convenient and skip the ads without making me switch to other YouTube channels or even other apps.
Let's be honest, which is better, Vanced or YT Premium? To be honest, it is better than YT Premium itself. Do you get VP9 Codec enforcement on YT Premium? Can you customize YouTube as you want on YT Premium? Can you skip annoying sponsors on YT Premium? Nah...not even soon or late.
Enough explanation already!!! If you want to support your favorite content creators, try to use their affiliate links, go to patreon donations, or whatever. Just please stop saying Vanced is piracy! It is just a service better than YouTube Premium itself.

Subject: Biggest TV channel in Brazil couldn't find an episode of their soap opera. Pirate comes in to save the day.
Basically the #1 biggest TV channel in Brazil couldn't find the source files of an episode of their own soap opera to upload to their streaming platform. So they make a tweet apologizing for having the whole series in HD, except for one episode which is in 240p.
Then a pirate chimes in with a google drive link containing said episode in full hd.
Subject: Alternative to adblock
Premises: I usually don't create posts, not on this subreddit at least; I quickly read the rules and this should be fine. I apologise in case it's against some rules. Also I'd like to mention I couldn't post this on r/youtube...
So, many of you probably already saw the video of linus tech tips, I come from this one.
I tried to post a comment about an alternative solution to adblock and it kept getting deleted, even when using 𝓈𝑜𝓂𝑒 𝓌𝑒𝒾𝓇𝒹 𝓉𝑒𝓍𝓉.
I'm not shadow banned, if I write a """normal""" comment it doesn't get deleted, but if I mention something within a minute is gone.
I'm so pissed about this behavior I decided to write this post.
There several apps on android which can turn off the sound during an ad, tap the skip button for you and then turn it back on. No ad is removed, no root is required. These apps automatically work on background, no notification, battery consumption near to non-existent (I assume it's less then 1% since my phone literally doesn't show it). They just save you the time to do these operations manually.
You can search them on play store, I use "skip ads youtube"
On pc you can do the same, I tried some extensions but many of them are adblocks under a different name. You can use tampermonkey and a script called "auto close youtube ads".
I think this is a better solution than adblock. If you use that you're already set on the idea that ads are trash. I do think the same, this way the youtuber still gets his revenue, and everyone is happy. I just spend those seconds resting my eyes for a bit. I guarantee it is 100x better without sound.

Hi folks, I'm airdropping mp3 and m4b files from my laptop to my iPhone and choosing BookPlayer when it asks me how I want to open the files. But then nothing happens, they don't show up in the app. Anybody knows if I'm doing anything wrong, any tips?
Subject: Should I buy something I've pirated?
A while ago I pirated devil may cry 5 , because I'm a fan of the series and was basically broke at the time , but I liked it a lot, it's like my 2nd favourite game and now I have to money to buy it AND it's on sale on steam. Should i buy it? I know everything about the game and have already gone through it like 10 times , I'm probably not playing it anymore even if I buy it , but just morally , do I owe it to capcom?
Subject: I hate self righteous bitches that act like you're a monster for pirating games from multibilionare companies
I'm sick of self righteous people that act like just because you donwloaded a 10+ years old game rom from a dead console you're doing a terrible crime that made a certainly not multibilionare company go bankrupt for such a sinful crime
Bro? It's not everyone who lives in a first world country that you have gamestop for example
Most games even for old consoles are expensive as fuck where i live and i only do piracy for dead systems/Systems that aren't relevant anymore like 3ds
I hate how these people are so hypocritical at the point of truly thinking that you're damaging the industry for downloading let's say Super Mario Sunshine on Dolphin instead of buying a Gamecube and get the game from a scalper who sells it for a modern game full price
I know that piracy is a crime but it's not like what you're doing is going to sent you to jail or bankrupt a multibilionare company, If i'm not even selling whatever i pirated, what in the hell is the problem?
Not having enough money to have a collection from games of every console in the existence because you told me so
