Youtube-DL's website host is being sued

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • NewPipe

    A libre lightweight streaming front-end for Android.

    Yt-dlp downloads things through the Android JSON api now, and I think has the ability to fall back on interpreting and executing the received JS challenge. See also this issue on newpipe's similar challenges

  • NewPipe

    A fork of NewPipe with SponsorBlock functionality. (by polymorphicshade)

    This fork is better

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • yt-dlp

    A youtube-dl fork with additional features and fixes

    There's like 1400 sites that work with it.

  • SponsorBlock

    Skip YouTube video sponsors (browser extension)

    Also worth mentioning is SponsorBlock, a more commonly recommended alternative. It uses the same crowd sourcing approach, but includes category definitions as well, to support skipping only stuff you don't like (like paid sponsorships and interaction reminders, but not unpaid recommendations for other channels, for example).

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
