I'm really happy with this, I hope it will stay online. YouTube was the only Google product that I still use left.

If you upload content for non-commercial purposes you could consider migrating to PeerTube at some point! But this is a really nice front-end, this is actually much closer to what I wish YT would be like.

Yeah I agree, but I still use YouTube a lot to listen to and discover music so this is a perfect replacement.

I wasn't saying not to use YouTube, because obviously you can't find content on PeerTube which hasn't been uploaded to PeerTube

Oh hell yes. I was so pissed about a year ago when Youtube updated their UI for the hundredth time, and it gave you a completely blank page if you had Javascript turned off. Now I can actually browse for videos the old way, instead of using youtube-dl on duckduckgo's search results, and hoping it's the right video.

Mad props to the people who made this.

On the front page:

President Bolsonaro shows how the left indoctrinated the children in Brazil to enslave our society.

How are you going to adapt when YouTube inevitably limits video views themselves? Hulu used to have free views with ads similar to what YouTube has right now. Eventually YouTube will eliminate free viewing. These proxy sites are only a temporary solution to the bigger problem of capitalist enclosure of online communities.

Eh there's nothing I'd really miss except the music, but then all the music uploaders will go somewhere else and I'll follow.

Good luck, I don't hold the same optimism I suppose.

What would you miss? I don't feel like YouTube provides an invaluable service to us so the loss of it wouldn't be that bad. If they follow the Hulu route it seals the deal quite quickly for me.
