If you want a good open-source client for Linux/Mac/Windows I would recommend Freetube.
YSK: You can still view dislike on YouTube videos using open source projects like FreeTube and NewPipe.
3 projects | reddit.com/r/YouShouldKnow | 21 Nov 2021
Why YSK? Because like everyone else I too hate to click on a video without knowing the like to dislike ratio and watse my time on clickbait videos. But there is hope open open source projects like Freetube and Newpipe still shows dislike on videos. While you can't like, dislike, or comment on videos you can freely watch any videos without being tracked by YouTube app or Google. On behalf of the open source community I highly recommend you download both freetube and newpipe and support the projects anyone way you can.

Any reason not to use Bullseye arm64 on a Pi4 ? Desktop setup seems normal and snappy.
1 project | reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi | 17 Nov 2021
I'm using the official beta image. Same software are present in the repo and those I installed run identically. I can also run Freetube (arm64 deb) which is my favorite way of watching subscribing to and watching YouTube and which is not available as 32 bit. VLC is hardware accelerated and I can watch 1080 video in the browser/Freetube/VLC with no frame drops.
Looking for a self hosted Youtube Frontend (Docker Based)
5 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 16 Nov 2021
If it doesn't need to be a hosted frontend per se, be sure to check out FreeTube and NewPipe. I can't go back to living without them, especially NewPipe.

how do i get past the age verification on youtube?

By default no it won’t redirect Youtube links to the application however, Here is a browser extension that will redirect you to privacy friendly alternatives to websites (Youtube will redirect to FreeTube).

Maybe make a PR to Privacy Redirect and add an automated redirection. It will help with the reach.
Privacy-redirect: browser extension to redirect requests (Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Google Maps/Search/Translate, Reddit) to privacy-friendly alternatives: Nitter, Invidious, FreeTube, Bibliogram, OpenStreetMap, SimplyTranslate, SearX/DuckDuckGo/Startpage/Ecosia/Qwant, Libreddit/Teddit/Snew

Privacy Redirect: Redirects browser requests to privacy-friendly alternatives

This is something I've encountered using this addon as well and I imagine would put off a lot of people (as it has for me on some occasions even). Having a brief look at the issues, it does appear it's something that has been discussed a lot, sadly without any code contributions yet. This might be partly due to how difficult automating the detection of this would be.5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 18 Oct 2021
