Batch Convert YouTube DASH m4a audio (youtube-dl) to m4a (AAC DL)

The YouTube DASH audio might not be played by some audio players. If you have multiple files with such format, you can convert them using the following command on Windows.

 FOR %i IN (*) DO  C:\Users\Downloads\ffmpeg-20160725-fb91850-win64-static\ffmpeg-20160725-fb91850-win64-static\bin\ffmpeg -i "%i" -vn -acodec copy "new\%i"

Note that you need to download ffmpeg first from here: Remember where you save the ffmpeg file (the directory to it).

Then open the command line window and navigate to the folder with the files to convert. From there issue the above command. Note that the converted files will be saved into the folder “new”.

Install shiny server on Godaddy cloud server

I am trying out the Goddy cloud server with the following specific:

No more than
$5.00 /month
($0.0074 /hour)
512MB memory
1 core processor
20GB SSD disk
1TB transfer

However, when I install the shiny package, I got the following error message

g++: internal compiler error: Killed (program cc1plus)

It turned out there was enough memory on the server. I was able to solve the problem by temporarily adding a larger swap file using the method discussed here:

To do it, use the following script

sudo fallocate -l 1G /swapfile
sudo chmod 600 /swapfile
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile

Then, install the package using

CXXFLAGS="-g -O2 --param ggc-min-expand=0  --param ggc-min-heapsize=8192" sudo su - -c "R -e \"install.packages('shiny', repos='')\""
