I am honestly thankful alternative Youtube clients like NewPipe and Skytube exist. I strongly recommend them.

Oh and Twitch has an open source alternative too, Twire. I just found that out and it works great so far.

@xzenia Another neat free software front-end for YT but in the browser is It's really good. There even a few add-ons on AMO for redirecting YT pages to
@bandali @xzenia youtube-dl and mpv works for youtube, twitch, and others on desktop

@xzenia Never heard of them. I think any alternative that puts "tube" in the name is doomed to fail though. I've been on bitchute and LBRY

@Fuzz Newpipe and Skytube are Android apps that still connect to Youtube servers but without the ads and the inability to download videos.

It's a shame that is the case though. I am still looking forward to the next great alternative to Youtube.
