Which Youtube alternative do you use?

There is a FreeTube fork called FreeTubeCordova, which uses the HTML/JS from the Electron based Freetube app, and ports it to Android and the web. Its a really cool project, although has a few bugs and missing FreeTube features that are being worked on.

Is there a self-hosted "Youtube proxy"? Looking for something similar to Plex for TV's that I can use to proxy, avoid ads and blacklist some channels.

Been using youtube-local https://github.com/user234683/youtube-local for months if not years now, does the job pretty well.
Any GOOD YouTube alternatives?

i can recommend youtube-local with VPN for performance and privacy. Also Odysee as many Youtubers already have a channel there.

A cross-platform GUI for YouTube-dl
20 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Sep 2021
Somewhat related self-plug: Self-hosted browser client for watching YouTube anonymously (Python):
It supports downloading all the raw formats (the video only ones, audio only ones, and the 360p & 720p integrated formats). More meant for watching than downloading, but some more advanced downloading features, such as merging audio+video with ffmpeg to get more downloadable qualities and auto-downloading options for playlists are planned.20 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Sep 2021

There are alternatives to YouTube actually. On PC there's an alternative frontend Invidious, and as an application you can use youtube-dl, FreeTube, or youtube-local.
My degoogling/privacy progress so far...

Interesting, didn't hear about youtube-local before but just installed it, this is great! Thanks for sharing. I'll try it a bit longer but will probably use that from now on instead of just an autocmd with Tridactyl.
