Show HN: A Discord Bot That Plays Music from YouTube (RIP Rhythm)
1 point by jessehorne 44 days ago | hide | past | favorite
Hey HN!

If you haven't heard, Rhythm was given a cease and desist order. This made me think it would be really fun to learn how it worked, so I made an extremely minimal but viable solution in JS.

It's small, it works and it doesn't use your filesystem. Also note, I'm not encouraging that anyone use this.

All feedback and criticisms are welcome!


p.s If you were YouTube or Rhythm, how would you have handled this situation differently? Could there be a way to keep bots like these without having them shut down and also without going bankrupt while running them?
