If you complained about the recent takedowns of youtube-dl or widevine-l3-decryptor, I would recommend you join me in celebrating International Day Against DRM!

Because this isn't anything new, it's only faced a little resurgence over the past month. Whether we like it or not, international law humors their arguments.

How about checking out some of my recommendations? adrian.geek.nz/movies
How about showing we don't need DRM or capitalists to fund & promote our entertainment?

For IDAD I relistened to lots of audio shows & music, before watching all of Blender's short animations! Now when's the chat?

Also I broke some DRM on my Finding Nemo DVD...

Wanna hear people isolated aboard the USS Haphaestus orbiting red dwarf star Wolf359?
Cheesy 1930's superheroics?
Fantastical ensamble comedy?
Timetravel coldwar conspiracy?

@alcinnz I gotta love how whenever I use Plex, Firefox insists that I need to enable DRM. I never do, and it always works just fine (I mean, aside from Plex's iffy stream-handling; when I download videos through Plex using a plugin or script, they generally play much better) (and isn't it great how Plex doesn't itself provide an option for downloading, even with the server owner's consent? The copyright/DRM industry increasingly rules the universe.)

I guess this is a #softwareGripe.

@woozle @alcinnz yeah this annoys me too. I think someone filed a bug report. Think plex does the drm check at the beginning rather than before playing a DRM piece of content, triggering the warning

@woozle @alcinnz This is one of the many reasons why I prefer the open-source #Jellyfin, which allows for downloads and, at least to my knowledge, doesn’t do any of the DRM-stuff
