Did you know that you can watch all YouTube videos without YT?

Invidious lets you watch all the videos, with the same title, so they're easy to find invidio.us/

But it's easier to click a link someone shares, so what to do about that?

Well, I just found this Firefox extension that auto-redirects you from YT to Invidious! addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

There's even one that replaces all YT embeds! addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Yeah! Added to my "must have" list addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

Want to watch videos from YouTube without using YouTube in an app on your phone/tablet? Try NewPipe. You can find it in F-droid.

@forteller Funny thing that NewPipe is 10x better l the YouTube app itself. The background play is amazing! Also ability to subscribe to channels and create lists without an account.

@forteller Why might we use invidious over YT?
I'm a bit leery of redirecting all of that traffic to a site I'm not familiar with.

@Tuxhedoh Because Google is gather too much info on too many people. It's dangerous. Invidious is FOSS, you can find the source here: github.com/omarroth/invidious
