Thanks teckk, cool links. I've been in love with Science, especially the Space Sciences, for almost as long as I can recall. Starting at age 6 my Uncle Bobby gave me astronomy books for Christmas and after the first one, his was the gift I longed for most and always opened first. So I know many of those links but a few are new to me and they are all quite fascinating.

So as not to merely be an "empty" thanks, here is one for you about the rapidly growing and incredibly promising field of MMA, and by that I don't mean the more obvious Mixed Martial Arts but instead I mean Multiple Messenger Astronomy. This term refers to bringing to bear a number of telescopes sensitive in wide-ranging bands of frequencies simoultaneously on an item and especially a cosmic event to "see" it in areas normally invisible to just the wave lengths our eyes can see - radio, infrared, gamma, xray and now Gravitational.

There are now a burgeoning number of videos on what has and what is happening with LIGO and it's companions and counterparts but due to a very recent event, not the initial windfall piece of good fortune of the 2 Black Holes merging 130,000,000 years ago whose gravity waves just a few years ago reached us, but a new event that by it's nature, 2 Neutron Stars merging, gave us lead time so many instruments could be trained on it as it unfolded. The data will be studied for years but a few things we already know for certain is that it was observed and confirmed by cross-checking the various and numerous scopes observing the same occurrences, the formation of heavier elements above iron, like platinum and gold in unimaginably vast quantities being formed and blasted out into the Cosmos at relativistic velocities.

Because of this we are in a much better position to understand how our solar system was formed and how we got here. Now, much more than that, the validity and power of Gravity Wave Astronomy has proven itself especially potent because it can see inside things and events and past the time when photons could flow and even form in the very early Universe. In short, we may finally, and relatively soon, be able to see all the way back to Big Bang.

Please forgive me for posting such a long video (it's over 3 hours long) but even a few minutes of it can be spellbinding. Also most people who have any interest in such things will get "recommended links" to shorter and possibly even newer than October 2017 but this one, because of it's length and large number on the experts panel in differing fields, gives the most complete understanding I've witnessed so far of this amazing new tool and it's combinations.

Anyway here it is. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks again.

I looked at these.
Format 18, 640x360 stream is only 554.43MiB. It is good quality, good enough to watch.
Format 135/140 is a little better and only (371.95 + 183.12 = 555.07)
Format 22 is 1280x720 hd720 667k ..mp4a.40.2@192k
Code:
wget --spider <realy long string from youtube-dl>

Remote file exists.
Format 136 is 1280x720 720p 1985k 779.25MiB
Format 140 is mp4a.40.2@128k, 183.12MiB
779.25 + 183.12 = 962.37
So only 1 GB for a 03:21:29 video.

Thanks for the post. I'll watch that when I get a chance.
I scrape all of the nova, moon, space, cosmos, planets videos that they air on above TV channel. Even if I don't dload them, I still have the playlist info for them in a log.

Some of those as so interesting that I watch them 2 or 3 times.
My thought is, download once, play 3 times. Why waste bandwidth and power on the servers to download them repeatedly. And then you can transfer them to your little device without having to install one of their apps. I don't even have google play store running on my droid devices.

yep, youtube et. al. are masters at compressing video.
avc1 is h264 apparently; with h265 it would be a few hundred MB less even!
