@kev Join the revolution and refuse to watch Youtube without using Youtube-dl to download the videos and watch them locally. No ads, no BS.
@quaylessed @kev I still post Youtube vids to the Fedi, I just assume that Fedi people are using youtube-dl or some other private way to watch them. My go to used to be Hooktube, but it is just a shadow of it's former self (it just directly imbeds the vids from YT now). Vid.me was promising, but faded away. Bit-Chute is nice, but has way too much porn on it for me to just let kids use it without supervision. For now, a DDG search for the URL and Youtube-dl via VPN is the best way to go.
@kev I advise newpipe on mobile and freetube on desktop. If you want something web based, I advise looking at invidio.us
Yeah same happens to me. I would recommend newpipe but I think you are on ios :(
@kev Try NewPipe you'll be sure to not see a premium message :p
@kev One of a few reasons I prefer NewPipe on F-Droid. Honestly a much nicer experience... Until you have to start the video in the middle again after context switching.
@kev have you taken a look at the newpipe app? I personally watch everything through invidious.us
@kev ah, I should have read the other replies...
