    I love invidious but two or three times a month, youtube rolls out an update that breaks it.

    eg, last week (not yet bypassed): https://github.com/iv-org/invidious/issues/4734

  • Google has been blocking Invidious with error "This helps protect our community"

    There’s comments on the issue that suggest that this is impacting any YouTube user rather than just Invidious users: https://github.com/iv-org/invidious/issues/4734#issuecomment...

    Youtube seems to be doing some A/B testing with the comment system which has made proxies like Invidious and yt-dlp/Newpipe unable to load comments. There is a patch for Invidious [1] which solves this problem but it is not in master yet. I tested it on my own instance and it does solve the problem.

    Could anybody explain it to me?

    Use a Youtube proxy like Invidious [1], problem solved and you get to subscribe to channels without telling the Beast about your interests. Add Sponsorblock (which supports Invidious) to get rid of any in-stream advertising which remains and you'll be transported back to those hallowed times of yore when men were men, women were women and advertising was something you found in newspapers. Youtube will try to make this harder just like Xitter is trying to make it harder to use proxies like Nitter [2].

  • YouTube begins new wave of slowdowns for users with ad blockers enabled

    Going to drop this here for others who haven't heard of it https://invidious.io/

    Now, how do we fix this? YouTube's ad model sucks. Their algorithm sucks. Their front page sucks. They've captured a bunch of creators though so often YouTube is the only place you can find someone.

    I want those creators to benefit from me viewing their videos. I want the fact that I view a video and like it to help other people find that video in their recommendations. I want an algorithm that shows me things that are interesting and relevant not one that promotes the spammiest and most ad heavy videos that barely have anything to do with my watch history.

    Having an alternative front end is nice but I don't want to rob YouTube of the money they spend on hosting the videos.

    So, how do we do this?

    Peer to peer fails when there is little interest in something or when most people leech and it sucks for archiving old content.

    Hosting it all in one place is super expensive and hard for a small group to manage without turning into YouTube.

    Maybe we could find a way for the creators to host their own content and get paid when people view it while being part of a large federated network for easy discoverability?

    Please list any projects you know of, I'm sure there are a lot of people here who would be willing to contribute or donate.
