I still use the old OPML RSS feed I made from my subscriptions to watch these. YouTube used to have a feature to get an OPML file of your subscriptions, and each channel also had automatically generated RSS feeds. It looks like this is now gone. See https://www.reddit.com/r/rss/comments/l3x6e8/youtube_subscriptions_opml_2021/. I used to use newsbeuter/newsboat with macros made to play the videos, but I have used a variety of other players. I also used Hooktube until that stopped working. I think Invidious community instances are still online, but have limited functionality.

Documentaries

  • The Nature of Things
    • This works over gem.cbc.ca and cbc.ca/player. The former used to be 1080p with surround sound at 6 Mbit/s DASH streams, whereas the latter was 720p HLS streams (muxed single stream vs separate audio/video for DASH). It looks like both are capped at 720p as of March 2022.

Podcasts

  • Safety Third
  • Darknet Diaries
  • 99% Invisible
  • Hello Internet
  • WAN Show (do we count this as a podcast?)

All of these are available through RSS, and will work with akgregator, sharerss or mpd.
