If you need to install a daemon to receive the ipfs files. This will download ipfs, install it, and set it up as a service that automatically restarts on reboot.
git clone https://github.com/alchmy/librarian.git cd librarian chmod +x ipfs-linux-install.sh ./ipfs-linux-install
By default, it is currently assumed that you have an IPFS daemon listening on localhost:5001, which is the default configuration of an IPFS daemon. If you wish to send to another endpoint, see the Advanced section.
Make sure that you put the main parameter in quotes so the shell does not try to expand any of the special characters.
Sending to non-default endpoints.
This is for sending the video to a daemon not on localhost:5001. Just specify the flags --ip, --port, and --protocol.
youtube2ipfs 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wLCmDtCDAM' --ip '164.13.543.32' --port '3454' --protocol 'http'
