I know, I was suggesting it to Ev as she said she didn’t know how to get her music onto her phone. If it’s all Apple, air drop. I know nothing, it just seemed the obvious thing to suggest.

I’m sure that means something. :)

"Command line" just means that instead of clicking on buttons you type commands in to make a program do what you want it to do. Initially this looks intimidating, like so, for instance:

Youtube-dl command line prompt.png


but this one is really easy to use. All I did here is to open the command prompt (this is how you do it in a Mac), navigate to the folder I downloaded the youtube-dl program in (in my case it involved typing "cd downloads\youtube-dl" and hitting the "Enter" key), starting the download program by typing "download-dl", followed by hitting the space bar once, then pasting the link of the thing to be downloaded (this one was "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHNLdHe8uxY") and finally hitting the "Enter" key again. Youtube-dl then does what it is told, which is to download Xaver Varnus playing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor on the great Sauer Organ of the Berliner Dom in 2013. This one:



It defaults to downloading the clip to the folder where your Youtube-dl program is installed. You then move the file to wherever you want to. You can also download the sound track only if that is what you want. It's all pretty simple.

And here I thought I did things primitively on my computer. You're about 10 years behind me! :mrgreen:

I started using computers when MSDOS 3.15 made "IBM compatible" PCs do stuff. What they could do was primitive indeed. Unless you had an Amstrad, doing stuff with photos was pretty much impossible, and video shit was strictly for Video Cassette Recorders. How much of either could you store on 4 megabyte hard disks anyway, and how would their stepper motors even handle the throughput of films?

My first computer did not even have a mouse. Everything was done via keyboard, but I jumped into GUIs the moment Windows 3.1 was released in 1992, and I installed later releases with great enthusiasm, only skipping duds like Windows 2000 and Vista. My laptop runs on Windows 10, and the desktop I'm typing with right now runs on Windows 8.1. (I also use an XP box for some legacy programs that can't run on later operating systems and another comp runs on Linux Mint, but they are of no concern here.)

I've probably used most download programs since Napster. There is nothing primitive about Youtube-dl. It is the most versatile download program on the scene at the moment. I could give it a GUI if I wanted to, but I have no need for it.

In the event that AirDrop shows you the VLC folder in your iPhone's file system, that's the quickest way to transfer your existing CD-ripped music to the VLC app. Just drag the files into the VLC folder in AirDrop (if it shows up).

If the VLC folder doesn't show up in AirDrop, you can still use AirDrop to drag the music into any folder in your iPhone's file system, then go into the Files app inside the iPhone, select all those files, and move them to the VLC folder.

Hopefully when the CDs were ripped, all the tags were nice and organized by the program that did the ripping. If not, then it'll be a jumbled mess. But still listenable. :P

Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but I shall at the weekend.

Thanks all for your help, greatly appreciated!

I’ve never even noticed a “files” app (fichiers) on my phone, but I have now. It’s empty, what a surprise. I expect to contribute to it now.

Ok good luck! The VLC folder will show up there once you install the VLC app, so remember to do that first. :thumbup:

Nice! :lol: I have a couple of Amiga's, but have still never done anything with them. The only software I have is some roms I downloaded to something years ago. Unfortunately I don't play with old computers or video games much anymore.
