>try to search something on an invidious fork
>as per usual, it doesn't work
>end up needing to search on invidio.us and open every link to see which fork is working today
Is this because of Jewgle's mischief or host incompetence?
I'd suggest using youtube-local or freetube instead of relying on invidious instances. Invidious instances are super unreliable as you know. Youtube-local is by far the most reliable, but unless you choose to proxy through tor you won't be proxied. Youtube-local also can't mux 1080p yet, whereas freetube can.

Freetube can use invidious instances and fall back to a local API, or vice versa. It also has a much better interface and is easier to install/configure. I use both, youtube-local for clicking links in the browser, and freetube for content I subscribe to and watch regularly.
yewtu.be has always worked for me, sometimes you just have to refresh the page a few times. it's not perfect, but that's just open sores for you.

I thought I was the only one who put up with that just so I don't have to use youtube. pic unrelated.

I just search for videos from a search engine and copypaste the link to genyt. Literally faster than putting up with youtube loading 16 years on every page load and playing 70 ads.

The way I use youtube without javascript is I have a dozen or so channels bookmarked and check their rss feed to see if there's anything new I want to watch. Might do this every week or so.

Copy the links one by one into a text file and run youtube-dl -a . If I want the video's description for a link in there or more information I just have to use --write-description on that video's URL.

For search I do what >>401 does. All that youtube is for me is a video file hosting service. No ads, no thumbnails and no suggested content. No dealing with youtube front-ends either.

same here. I have to refresh the page a dozen times before anything will load.

I just use mpv https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49koBNWIuy4 (you need to have mpv + youtube-dl + ffmpeg + rtmpdump installed for this to work)

Those services violate the terms of use and is exactly an abuse which they can rightfully block.
Host is fine unless it is unreachable, the problem is the instances are blocked all the time or they upgrade the stuff and become incompatible pretty much like NewPipe and youtube's cat and mouse game where it breaks ever now and then.

Are you seriously white knighting for Google?

Sageies are always like that, just ignore them.
>can't comprehend the context of the statement
Are you like 17 or 34? Obnoxious people tend to just assume others are wrong automatically or you're just another disagreeable person who tend to disagree even with facts.
The post literally said the truth,
>invidious literally violate the TOS (if you can read the official TOS of google) that's why it's blocked,
mostly music content are blocked all the time and even pornographic content which only got fixed recently
>API breaks ever now and then because it also literally violate the TOS (if you can >read).
>White knighting
Are you stuck in 2014 with those vocabulary? No one's whiteknighting anyone from those statements, you literally made an enemy out of your imagination, classic American getting too riled up and emotional on a literally a factually logical post. I don't know what kind of extrapolation you made to convince yourself the post is speaking up for google? Maybe you're the pawn, look at you capitalizing the company's first letter like a pawn.

How many times have you not seen instances being blocked? Even the Newpipe devs complained about the API changes (not even API at this point) that broke their code and had to build the app weekly since a lot of people were issuing bugs when the problem is not actually on their end.

Fuck off white knight.
In the last few days there are more and more strange posts, at this point it can't even be a bot since bots learn from users. Did a eceleb advertise the webring on insta or something? 

I use iteroni.com and i don't remember it being down much.

The variety of strange posts seems to be coming from different people at different time. It may be just a number of newcomers making 1-2 posts.
Also use pipe-viewer.

How is pipe-viewer related to what i said?
Replies: >>3534
pipe-viewer with invidious api tries all known instances automatically.
