weeeeeell when I watch a show I use subs2srs to make a card out of each of the subtitle lines. These cards consist of the text sentence on the front, and a screenshot + audio clip on the back.
The s2s bank currently has 91k cards. Each day I pull 10 cards out of the bank to learn. Tomorrow I’ll hit 6k cards in my review deck
My assumption is that storage costs will decrease at a greater rate than my data consumption. If this is the case, my effective storage usage will actually reduce over time even as I add more to the bank. I think I’m more likely to encounter issues with the file count first, but I don’t really know
This system isn’t really thought through / planned out, it’s just what naturally came about
I would simply delete shows from the bank as I finish watching them, but I’ve found the bank so useful as an easily searchable corpus of accurate audio + text pairs that I’ve held on to them all so far
If this will put too much strain on ankiweb I’m happy to look for a way to amend that somehow (eg setting up my own sync server, or manually copying the bank files between devices, or whatever)
