    @tinkernut your written instructions and your video instructions are not the same. I tried to follow the written instructions and when I got to the end I ran "sudo systemctl start hostapd" and I got an error saying : "Failed to start hostapd.service: Unit hostapd.service is masked."

    I ran "systemctl unmask hostapd.service" and that then let me start the hostapd. Then rebooted. Cannot see the ssid I set up.

    EDIT:: After a lot of searching I found that you have to set up hostapd to start up automatically on boot by entering:

    $ sudo update-rc.d hostapd enable
    into the terminal.

  • Could potentially find a USB LTE modem (if those exist) and find a way to give legitmate internet acess to the devices connected. UK mobile networks such as EE have dedicated devices for this such as the EE osprey. Would probably also use a more standardised user freindly media server such as Plex since non tech savvy people (such as family members) would probably be connected in a circumstance where youd be using this

  • You can use youtube-dl and an Android app, so that you can add an option called "Download on Pi" in the YouTube share sheet.
