When I installed KALite the default content directory was ‘C:\Users\Aditya.kalite\content’ and when I clicked on videos it showed me some 230gb odd will be downloaded - which I assume is original content not resized.
My C: is a 256gb ssd so I decided to change the content directory to another drive and restart the video downloads, but this time it shows that I have only 31.3gb to download when I select everything.
I think for some reason changing the default content directory path is prompting KALite to download resized videos instead of the original content?
How can I fix this? My plan is to download the entire directory on my home pc which has ample bandwidth and then copy the content folder over to a Pi / other PCs.
This sounds like a bug. All videos combined have never been
230 GB. On my 0.17.1 installation, they are showing as
208.6 GB with partner contents etc. included.
I find that the torrent for 0.17 resized English videos is 42 GB on disk… so the 31.3 is not from there.
Quick update: I did a verification of the figures in the content database, and everything summarizes to 235 GB.
Btw are you downloading all videos? If so, I can strongly recommend using the torrent with resized videos because you don’t loose any considerable quality. Storage capacity will be better, and playback will be smoother (on low-spec devices).
Yup, I figured the original resolution videos would be better for scenarios where a projector might be used to display them. If there isn’t a noticeable difference I’ll just do the torrent.
