Top 7 JavaScript Video Projects

  • GitHub repo vanilla-lazyload

    LazyLoad is a lightweight, flexible script that speeds up your website by deferring the loading of your below-the-fold images, backgrounds, videos, iframes and scripts to when they will enter the viewport. Written in plain "vanilla" JavaScript, it leverages IntersectionObserver, supports responsive images and enables native lazy loading.

    Project mention: Beginners Guide to Web Performance: Optimizing Images | | 2021-09-06

    If you want to guarantee lazy-load across all (JavaScript-capable) browsers and not just images, I've used Vanilla Lazyload a couple years ago with success, but as this relies on using a data-src attribute, you will get W3C validation errors unless you also set a src attribute. But you don't want to set the src to a real image, because this will nullify the whole point of using the plugin, so set it to a 1x1 pixel "image" that will immediately get replaced by the data-src once the image scrolls into view.

  • GitHub repo FreeTube

    An Open Source YouTube app for privacy

    Project mention: If you're so dissatisfied with YouTube, then stop using it | | 2021-12-03

    I just don't go on YouTube anymore, and if I do want to watch something on it I use FreeTube, complaining is good for frustration but it is not going to change anything. One of the best things that could happen would be some mass user exodus to a better alternative, and letting YouTube continue to make its stupid decisions. Odysee seems nice, and its only weakness is the lack of variety that YouTube has due to less users.

  • GitHub repo Simple-YouTube-Age-Restriction-Bypass

    A simple userscript to bypass YouTube's age verification and watch age restricted videos without having to sign in.

    Project mention: WTF! Do they really expect people to comply to this? Seems that verifying your age via mail isnt good enough for them | | 2021-12-02
  • GitHub repo jellyfin-web

  • GitHub repo youtube-local

    browser-based client for watching Youtube anonymously and with greater page performance

    Project mention: A cross-platform GUI for YouTube-dl | | 2021-09-10

    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.
