Just got a Community Guidelines strike on YouTube for talking about NewPipe. The free and open source video player. Sigh...
@art Gotta love the specificity of it. Like "Your video doesn't comply with *something* in here. Good luck finding any concrete info on what it is that you did, though!" :/
@art Conversely, when I found out how well NewPipe worked with TILvids (my PeerTube instance), I felt compelled to make a video showing how to use it, to share with the community!
@art Thanks for posting your videos on peertube as well. In the end, non-centralized platforms are probably our only way to escape corporate tyranny. Keep up the good work!
Community Guidelines strikes

• Your channel will get a Community Guidelines strike.
• You won't be able to do things like upload, post, or live stream for 1 week.
If you feel we made a mistake, you can (...)
yeah youtubes community guidelines are a bit fuzzy, in 2019 a video of some friends was banned in which they have just read text from the german constitution! 😉
@art I got the same strike for a video on youtube-dl not too long ago. So did DenshiVideo. Really annoying they seem to be targetting small YouTube video creators but leave larger people’s videos up. Harmful or dangerous content includes videos that break their terms of service.
Promoting an alternative platform or tool is against YouTube's guidelines.
Every person who say "Watch my stream on Twitch", "I am on LBRY", "Join our Zoom conference at 7pm Pacific time" or similar things to inform people about a tool or platform that is competitor of Google is violating the guidelines.
It is so sad that to inform people about better alternatives, we should use their censored platform ☹️
@art Oh wow *slow claps*👏 ... It this point I am not even surprised those basters are nothing but fucking clowns just because its not made from them the consider it as a threat unbelievable! damn bastard's people got to move over to peer tube as alternative because why the fuck would anybody has to deal with this crap😠
I see why Google took away their 'Don't Be Evil' motto. What about free speech and freedom of choice? YouTube are acting like Nazis.
