cr_download checks recent Critical Role Twitch VODs for videos with titles looking like Critical Role episode titles, and prompts the user to download each one. The file is downloaded as video using the streamlink API, and converted to audio using ffmpeg.
Optionally, cr_download can use the Chromaprint music fingerprinting algorithm to attempt to detect the soundtracks Critical Role plays before/after the show, in the opening credits, and during the break. If a good enough set of transition points is found in the episode audio, cr_download will recut the audio to leave out pre/post-show segments, intermission, and (optionally) the announcement section of the episode.
In addition, cr_download can also upload the audio files for the episode to a fixed Google drive folder.
Install ffmpeg if you haven't already.
If installing via pip (recommended, if I've actually uploaded the package to PyPI by the time you read this), run
