 +====== LBRY ======
  
 +**LBRY** is a protocol (like HTTP, FTP) for transferring data using blockchain. A super useful advantage it has over a comparable P2P thing like torrents is that it allows for streaming video (and audio I assume?)
 +
 +You can find my videos at
 +
 +  * lbry:​%%//​%%@ryliejamesthomas
 +
 +I will probably make another account for Game Making Tools too.
 +
 +===== Setup =====
 +==== Arch Linux ====
 +[[https://​github.com/​lbryio/​lbry/​blob/​master/​INSTALL.md|The page has guides for setting up on OSX, Windows and Ubuntu]], so here'​re some notes on getting it going on Arch.
 +
 +Dependancies:​
 +
 +^ Ubuntu package ^ Arch equivilant ^
 +| libgmp3-dev | libgmp |
 +| build-essential | base-devel (?) |
 +| python2.7 | python2 |
 +| python2.7-dev | python2 |
 +| python-pip | same |
 +| git | same |
 +| python-virtualenv | python-virtualenv |
 +| libssl-dev | openssl |
 +| libffi-dev | libffi |
 +
 +The only other little tweak I had to do was make sure the virtual environment I setup was using Python 2 instead of 3 with
 +
 +  virtualenv -p python2 lbry-venv
 +
 +The lbry-app is availible in the AUR: [[aur>​lbry-app-bin/​|lbry-app-bin]]
 +
 +===== Accounts =====
 +==== Deleting Items ====
 +You can't currently delete items via the GUI, but you can fairly easily do it via the command line.
 +
 +First you need make sure the LBRY daemon is running. Easily done by just launchign the program.
 +
 +Then you nned to get the ID of the item you want to remove
 +
 +  lbrynet-cli claim_list_mine
 +
 +Then use ''​claim_abandon''​ to remove the item and refund your LBC credits
 +
 +  lbrynet-cli claim_abandon claim_id=[id]
 +
