I’m sorry to post a link to surveillance capitalist YouTube but you need to watch this speech by Hannah Gadsby in full. In under eight minutes, not only does she give a masterclass in intersectional feminism but also a biting critique of the hypocrisy at the heart of neoliberalism.

Alternatively you can view it on invidious ( invidio.us ) which doesn't track you, simply replace all the youtube or youtu.be stuff with invidio.us, you can keep the unique video identifier though.

So m.youtube.com/watch?v=OEPsqFLh becomes invidio.us/watch?v=OEPsqFLhHBc

Hope this helped!

True, and if you're on Desktop then FreeTube ( github.com/FreeTubeApp/FreeTub ) is another good alternative too for watching videos, it lets you subscribe without an account too!

@UnclearFuture @el_joa @krozruch @aral Great to have another alternative:) Thanks for mentioning it, hadn't heard of this.

@el_joa @UnclearFuture @aral Recently discovered it, though I have to first know it's useful so view it elsewhere first.

@krozruch @el_joa @aral

Oh, quick tip I learned, if you like full 1080p then you can download the video and audio seperately and then stitch them together with ffmpeg using the following command:

ffmpeg -i video_file -i audio_file -c copy output_file_name

also, if you need subtitles youtube-dl --all-subs is useful, which then you can weave into the above outputted file too:

ffmpeg -i file -i subtitle_file -c copy output_file :)

@UnclearFuture
Well, it does not proxy the video which is still loaded directly from googlevideos.com CDN, so you'll at least leak your IP.
Still better than using YouTube directly though

@ck @aral

Ah, right, thank you for the information :).

True, better than using it directly!

@UnclearFuture Ah, thank you; I was trying to remember the name of that site. Appreciate it :)
