"Gentlemen. You can't fight in here. This is the War Room!"'

If you want to help archive Google Video, get some machines running and join us in IRC (EFNet #archiveteam / #googlegrape)

The automatic scripts only work on FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, Windows, OS X, and Cygwin.

Anyone can help out, but we would *really* appreciate it if you'd use an *NIX system over any thoughts of doing it on a Windows system. If you however choose to pursue the Magical World of Windows - please make sure that what you are collecting is not damaged as a consequence of running it on a Windows system.

In any case, the first thing to do is to please add your name/nickname to this list, along with the storage and bandwidth you have available.

Get Involved With Listerine

Listerine is a BOINC-style download effort started by underscor. It consists of a server that gets lists of videos to download from the indexer and seedlists. Then, the server assigns the videos via their ID number to users running the downloader. Listerine was originally called googlegargle2 but Jason Scott thought people would confuse it with googlegargle so googlegargle2 was renamed to Listerine.

If you do not upload your downloaded videos, they will be lost forever. Every time Listerine successfully downloads a video it tells the central server that it's taken care of. The current plan is to rsync them from everyone's drives up to an archive.org server controlled by Jason Scott (SketchCow on IRC). Ask on #googlegrape for details. You will need a personal username and password given out by SketchCow.

The server is located at http://199.48.254.90:8082/ and shows the latest statistics. You can see pretty graphs at http://199.48.254.90/at/charts.html.

For more information, see the IRC Channel for Downloaders (#boincgoogle); go there to get started. If no one's there, try the more-populated #googlegrape.

Download Client Instructions for Linux and Mac

  • Make sure you have wget and curl installed
  • Download youtube-dl and mark it executable: chmod +x youtube-dl
  • Get aria2 from your distribution (or if you're on Mac OS X, MacPorts or Homebrew) or SourceForge
    • quick-install info is available here
    • For older aria versions, some options need to be removed (--max-connection-per-server=16 --min-split-size=1M)
    • You might need to upgrade your version from your system package manager, however the most recent version still may not suffice.
  • Ensure you have youtube-dl, wget, curl and aria2c in your PATH
  • Download the scripts by cloning the git repository:
    git clone git://github.com/norcnorc/googlegargle.git
    If you download them manually (instead of using git), you'll want to do chmod +x listerine googlegargle to make them executable.
  • cd into the script directory. If you're on Mac OS X, install coreutils via MacPorts or Homebrew, then edit the listerine script, replacing the du command on line 68 with gdu. You need to do this because the system standard du does not support the output in bytes (the -b option), resulting in an error every time a download finishes.
  • Run ./listerine. Make sure you specify a username; the nick you use on IRC would be a good choice.
  • Let it run for a minute or so, then check if .flv files are starting to turn up.
  • If the download speed seems low, try running multiple instances of listerine at once. You can use the same username and download dir for them all.
  • To stop the script, create a file named STOP in its directory. (Open a new terminal, and use $ touch STOP)

Download Client Instructions For Windows

This should run on Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7

  • Download windex (you will also need aria2 and python )
  • Extract it to a directory where you want to download the files
  • Make sure that aria2.exe is in the same directory
  • Start windex.bat (Windows Vista/7 users may need to start it from the command prompt), enter your user name.
  • To stop the script, create a file named "stop" in the folder with windex.bat. It will stop after it finishes the current download.

To make it automatically stop after downloading the video when free disk space gets too low:

  • Download keep_free_space and extract the .exe to the folder with windex.bat.
  • Run it, set the threshold and click "Start"

You will have to run one instance for each instance of windex you are running, even if they are on the same hard drive, if you want them all to stop. If you want, it can notify you using Windows Messenger service (net send), make sure that the service is running, enter the hostname of the computer where to send the message and check the checkbox.

Indexer Instructions For Linux And Mac

Note: This will only work on machines with X running. To run it on a headless server, use Xvfb (virtual framebuffer). On Ubuntu/Debian: 'apt-get install xvfb', then use xvfb-run to start your main script. An X server will now be made available to any programs that need it.

  • Get the tools needed to build phantomjs (a headless web browser) and run the script: Qt WebKit, git, and curl. On Debian or Ubuntu Maverick and up, install the packages build-essential, curl, git, libqtwebkit4, libqtwebkit-dev, and libqt4-dev by issuing the command:
sudo apt-get install build-essential curl git libqtwebkit4 libqtwebkit-dev libqt4-dev

On Ubuntu Lucid 10.04: Since Lucid comes with Qt4.6, not the required 4.7, you may need to add a ppa before trying to install the needed packages.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports && sudo apt-get update

Additionally, in Lucid, the git package is named git-core, so:

sudo apt-get install git-core

or, on Fedora:

sudo yum install curl git qt-webkit qt-webkit-devel qt-devel
  • Run the following command to get the phantomjs source code:
git clone https://github.com/ariya/phantomjs.git
  • Enter the directory that was just created by using the following command:
cd phantomjs
  • Build phantomjs by issuing the command:
qmake && make -j2
  • Move the phantomjs binary somewhere in your path by issuing the command:
cd bin && sudo mv ./phantomjs /usr/local/bin
  • Extract the above downloaded file (Right-click and Extract To.. or use tar -zxvf ./google_video_related.tar.gz)
  • In a terminal, navigate to the folder where you extracted the google_video_related file (above) and run the following command to help scrape Google Video:
while : ; do ./related.sh ; done

Indexer Instructions for Windows

Grab the following archive which comes with full instructions: http://nstrom.chaosnet.org/google_video_related_win.zip

The script will contact the server to get a page to index the related video links, do that indexing, send back the results and repeat! It takes very little processing and bandwidth on your end (a couple of kb/sec, if that).

Download Virtual Machine

To start helping out with minimal effort, you can download a Virtual Machine (1.6 GB) for use in VirtualBox and other solutions. Virtual Machine Mirror

  • Based on Ubuntu 10.10 and boots up into a GUI automatically
  • 20 GB auto expanding virtual disk space
  • Admin password: 0000
  • Start the indexing script, the download script or both on the desktop by double-clicking and choosing "run in terminal"
  • The videos are downloaded into /home/sadmin/googlegargle

Seed Lists

Please send any new seedlists to underscor on IRC, rather than embarking on them yourself. He'll add them to the listerine queue.

Custom searches

  • PLEASE add your custom searches and their details to this table!
  • Words suggestions: public domain, subtitles
  • Words already in the table or added to the BOINC client: conference, hack, wiki, linux, creative commons, part, interview, documentary, talk, brain, civilization, evolution, future, language, literature, mind, money, neurolinguistic, singularity

Deduplication For Those Not Using Listerine

To avoid downloading videos that have already been downloaded by others:

  • check if you have SQLite installed ("which sqlite3")
  • download the gv-dedup scripts
  • initialize a fresh database with "./gv-list-create.sh"
  • download all seed lists on this page (plus the cherry picks) and import them with "./gv-list-import.sh seed_file" (or "find seeds/* -exec ./gv-list-import.sh {} \;")
  • invoke "./gv-list-dedup.sh seed_videos_foo > list" to filter already downloaded videos from your custom seed list
  • also import your custom seed file with "./gv-list-import.sh list"

A pre-filled database is available.

Tools

Youtube-DL

DocID scripts

Scraping by dates uploaded:

Check to see which dates have already been scraped at:

GoogleGargle

Aria2c (APT)

Aria2c (RPM)

Fedora and CentOS have RPMs available.

  • yum install aria2

Searcher

Bash script to search for terms on Google Video, includes dedupe and ability to restrict search by video length.

predict-download-size

Bash script to read a docid list and find out the total size of the listed videos. Requires youtube-dl, curl.

Subtitles

Some videos have subtitles which haven't been included in the download script (yet). I've created a fairly basic script which retrieves all available subtitles and stores them into the correct folder. You just need perl and a seed list (saved as "list"). You can also run it in an empty dir if you're afraid that it will mess with the videos you have downloaded so far (probably a good idea as I didn't do extensive tests yet). Once the subtitles have been downloaded, just run a "rsync -avP $subtitle_directory $video_directory" to transfer the subtitles to the corresponding video.

You may grab the script at http://piratepad.net/K7wZRrxvoU. Feel free to modify it.

--- For some reason it sometimes saves the file under a different name than what it outputs to the console, tested on Debian 6 -Pentium100 -> This has been corrected, the problem arose whenever there were spaces in the filename.

--- Google will return a 503 if it feels like it's queried by a bot (http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=86640). I have modified the script to pause for 60 seconds after 100 queries, hope that this will suffice. If not, you can either tweak the $PAUSE_AFTER or the actual pause duration in the script. Also, the script will now download multiple subtitles for one video (it didn't do that before, sorry!). -Dr.Sweety

Saving Individual Videos

The seed files do currently not include all videos, so you might want to save precious videos explicitely. To do that, add IDs (found in the docid URL parameter video) to the "list" file in the same directory as the script, for example:

docid=1545969803753962248
docid=1598207563000425446
docid=-1679753730105404298

and start ./googlegargle

To request a video, add it to this list: http://piratepad.net/gvspecificrequests

If you download something from that list, add its docid to http://piratepad.net/TL7KDN8821 so that others won't download those videos for the second time.

Custom Keyword Searches

Linux

If you want to grab videos by your own custom keyword search term, you can use this script.

Alternatively, you can use this command:

SEARCH='my+search+term';for i in `seq 0 10 990 `;do curl -A "AT, Bitches" "http://www.google.com/search?q=$SEARCH+site:video.google.com&hl=en&safe=off&tbm=vid&start=$i&sa=N"|grep -o "docid=[0-9-]*"|sort -u|tee -a seed_videos_$SEARCH;done

Change "my+search+term" to your search term, and remember to use a plus sign instead of spaces (and to url encode the text for other special characters).

Mac Bash Command

Uses jot instead of seq:

SEARCH='my+search+term';for i in `jot - 0 990 10 `;do curl -A "AT, Bitches" "http://www.google.com/search?q=$SEARCH+site:video.google.com&hl=en&safe=off&tbm=vid&start=$i&sa=N"|grep -o "docid=[0-9-]*"|sort -u|tee -a seed_videos_$SEARCH;done

Alternatively, you can get seq (and lots of other useful stuff) by installing the macports coreutils package: sudo port install coreutils. Commands are prefixed with a 'g', so seq is called gseq, but you may of course symlink it so you don't have to modify your scripts.

Searches Undertaken

Since we want to minimize overlap, here are some search terms that are already in progress of being downloaded along with the name of the downloader:

  • Darkstar: "rare", "vintage", "commercial"
  • NomDuClavier: "douglas adams", "richard dawkins", "charles darwin", "michio kaku", "brian cox", "vernor vinge", "carl sagan", "simon singh"
  • oli: "australia history"
  • dnova: "microelectronics"
  • Lightblb: "documentary" (medium and long videos), "lecture" (medium and long videos), "atheism" (medium & long), "interview" (long), talk (medium & long), brain (medium & long), civilization (medium & long), evolution (medium & long), future (medium & long), language (medium & long), literature (medium & long), mind (medium & long), money (medium & long), neurolinguistic (medium & long), singularity (medium & long)
  • ttuttle: "astronomy"
  • crackbab1: "ecology"
  • tj__: "army"
  • r00s: "dokumentation" (medium, long)

Also check the specificrequest PiratePad under Cherry Picking on this page.

Troubleshooting

  • /usr/bin/aria2c: unrecognized option '--max-connection-per-server=16'
    • The Aria version available in many linux distributions is not up to date and will throw errors.
    • To fix this remove the option from the goooglegargle script line starting with "ARIAOPTIONS="
  • User 'negge' on IRC reports the following ARIA command line works for Debian Squeeze with ext4 filesystem,
    • --max-overall-download-limit=1024M --file-allocation=falloc --max-connection-per-server=4 --min-split-size=1M --log-level=notice --remote-time=true
  • or for ext3 on Debian Squeeze,
    • --max-overall-download-limit=1024M --file-allocation=prealloc --max-connection-per-server=4 --min-split-size=1M --log-level=notice --remote-time=true
