    I liked that show. I used to watch it sometimes a long time ago. I
    remember one with a time travel service, and a few people went back
    in time when dinosaurs were still around, and someone stepped on a
    bug or something and it made small changes when they went back to
    the 'current' time. Basically a butterfly effect episode.

    I'll have to find that - it's on one of the Roku channels, I browsed
    past it a few weeks ago.

    I bought a Roku Stick a few months ago, and I like it. I think it's cool that they have their free TV shows that they stream. I didn't realize Ray Bradbury Theater was on there. I've seen some that people have uploaded to YouTube too.

    Years ago, I bought PlayOn, which runs as a server on a PC and streams content to your TV that they normally wouldn't let you play on a TV (some TV show web sites restrict their content that way, for some reason). PlayOn had a listing of many TV channels and shows that they'd stream online, and I watched some Outer Limits with it. I haven't used PlayOn in a while though.. Last I checked, PlayOn was only supported on Windows, and I'd have liked to see a Linux version.

    I was trying to youtube-dl a playlist and my download speed kept shitting out. I would hate to have to manually type out a command in terminal for each of these.

    I find it much easier to click on the SHARE button on the YT
    page, copy the much shorter link to the clipboard, and then
    simply paste that after the youtube-dl command.

    I also have a batch program that I named "yt" that provides the
    option for fetching the smaller version of the video with the "-f
    18" option, so that all I have to enter is "yt s" and the link.

    Does youtube-dl download the video file to your computer for viewing later,
    or does it play the video at the link without downloading a local copy?

    It downloads the file to your computer, does not play the video.

    it can do a lot of stuff. and it can pipe to another program like vlc.
    it fucks up a lot for me. especially on playlists with missing vids
