YouTube has issues, here's how we fix them! This video explores methods of improving YouTube, as well as different platforms altogether.
BitSlide is a mobile client for BitChute.
It's not available on the Play Store anymore and it was never available on
F-Droid though :(
I managed to install it before it got taken down.
@techlore No mention of Invidious instances in the YouTube front end
LBRY/Odysee is just a dangerous system as it's based on the blockchain, so it
only works if people keep mining bitcoin (and thus uses more power than New
Zealand). When people stop mining (either by choice or necessity), the
platform will no longer be able to have videos added and will soon lose all
content. Basically, it has all the issues of a centralised site, but with
bonus carbon emissions!
LBRY is YouTube's little brother. The platform is doomed to revert to
censorship because the core of their business plan is advertising. Advertising
= Censorship. The foundation is a shady too because they pre-mined and paid
themselves with their crypto token. I had some Odysee connection problems on
my phone due to VPN and when I inquired in their Discord, they tried to shame
me for using VPN. PeerTube is the only decentralized, censorship resistant
option for the long run. Possibly BitTube too (which is PeerTube based), if
they ever get their act in gear.
@techlore I prefer PeerTube as it's federated, I can interact with it using my
Mastodon and Pleroma accounts, there is transcoding and it's not for profit. I
wish more hobbyists knew about it.
I have been enjoying PeerTube, it also has live streaming now and nice that
you can host your own instance. libry is nice but has trackers and uses google
ad sense. Main problems with PeerTube is a lot of channels have porn (can be
hidden and reported but sometimes leaks through) . Also I recently moved my
whole YouTube to PT one video at a time and the public instance I used is just
gone now... All that work a waste. So choose an instance with proper terms of
service or a lot of support and keep backups. Or host your own instance.
Freetube is like Newpipe but for all desktops:
