They are getting rid of the old youtube. I don't want to use the new mobile flat crap.
It already is mobile flat crap. They got rid of the old Youtube sometime around 2007.
>>146 It always gets worse. The new one wastes so much space and resources that it takes forever to load and makes my fan go loud. If they are not sabotaging firefox on purpose they might as well be.
>>145 Reminder that you can use hooktube.com to wipe away most of the garbage YT inserts in it's site. It's not got a great design, but it's still better than regular YT.
Just use mpv+youtube-dl like every other sane person does. You can subscribe to channels through RSS and search youtube by DuckDuckGo.
>>149 I do, even with a webextension ( whole other tragedy). But I still use the site for the title, thumbnail, description etc. Never subscribed (no google account) and I never got into RSS.
>>150 >Never got into RSS You absolutely need to. Fellow no-youtube-acc:er here and let me tell you it makes your life a whole lot easier. It's not as hard as you think it is, there are RSS clients and addons and everything.
youtube's interface has been unusable for years. try invidio.us is there any alternative web interface for twitter? lately it keeps blocking Tor.
>>152 nitter.net
The new TOS they have brought in is a bit worrisome, it seems like it is designed to silence political speech.

>>145 I ain't clicking nothin'. I ain't consenting ta nothin' to nobady, yo got that YooToob? Fockin' make me, I'll wait for ya.
>>151 Can you give soms RSS client recommendations and instructions on how to use it with YouTube and YouTube downloader.
>>145 Try this site, it's a good frontend that can use a different player to download videos in full like old YT rather than streaming it piece-by-piece: https://www.invidio.us
By the way, does anyone know a good way of uploading videos to YT without making a Google account? You can use a dummy email + phone number to make a throaway account, I guess.
>>158 For the last couple months I've been trying to figure out how to make a Google account without a phone number and it's been utterly hopeless. Those fuckers really want you to catalog you in their mass surveillance network.
>>159 It's just to filter spam, they really don't need your number, since they already own your phone.
