Get all my videos offline

You can easily download all of my videos for offline viewing with youtube-dl. Just create a new directory and run the following command in it:

youtube-dl -ic --write-thumbnail --add-metadata --restrict-filename https://youtube.com/c/LukeSmithxyz

Feel free to break this operation in the middle, and if you run it again, it will continue downloading where you left off. It will also download the thumbnails and add the proper metadata to the video files.

My Videos by Topic

Below is a list of my YouTube videos, organized by general topic. They're in no order after that, except for some categories that might have some logical sequence to them (like the LaTeX lessons).
