    1. Best way to consume YouTube without the algorithmic results?

      I'd love to get a passable alternative interface to YouTube that just shows me what I'm subscribed to, a search bar, and nothing else. Does this exist as a userscript or alternate site? Edit: My...

      I'd love to get a passable alternative interface to YouTube that just shows me what I'm subscribed to, a search bar, and nothing else. Does this exist as a userscript or alternate site?

      Edit:

      My current solution is to have my YouTube bookmark go directly to my subscriptions listing. I also have my ad blocker cut out the recommendations feed on the side. It works okay but maybe there's a better solution out there.

      This is the ad block rule:

    2. YouTube experimenting with removal of public dislike count

      @YouTube: 👍👎 In response to creator feedback around well-being and targeted dislike campaigns, we're testing a few new designs that don't show the public dislike count. If you're part of this small experiment, you might spot one of these designs in the coming weeks (example below!). pic.twitter.com/aemrIcnrbx

    3. Did youtube just make it so you can't watch embedded videos that have an age restriction without logging in?

      I just try to navigate the internet with as little "logging in" as possible. Youtube always had an age restriction that forced you to confirm your age by logging in but it could be bypassed when...

      I just try to navigate the internet with as little "logging in" as possible. Youtube always had an age restriction that forced you to confirm your age by logging in but it could be bypassed when watching the video embedded on another site. I just tried for the Hitman 3 trailer on /r/games and it didn't let me. That's the first time this happened. Could it be just some adblock thingy? Or are they no longer letting you watch restricted content without logging in?

    4. Rooster Teeth employee Ryan Haywood stepping down and Adam Kovic possibly going the same way

      Recently it has come to light that Ryan allegedly abused his position as an employee to exploit fans. Ryan is stepping down in the chaos: https://twitter.com/RyanTheTwit/status/1313598106081132547...

      Images and videos released of Adam Kovic were released showing him performing sexual acts in the Funhaus office, as well as some other things. Kovic will likely be fired or resign.

      Recent videos featuring the two were either deleted or edited to remove their appearances/voices.

      This is a sad day for Roosterteeth fans and the coworkers who admired them.

    5. Solution for streaming music from YouTube on Android?

      I have a very good camping friend that streams music from YouTube to bluetooth speakers with his Android phone.

      He is frustrated with how, after several minutes, the music stops and he finds a screen asking: "Are you still listening?". Of course he selects "yes". He's also, similarly, frustrated by all the advertisements.

      What solutions would you recommend to my friend? Please, keep in mind that he is very far from tech savvy. So, your recommendations will have to be very simple.
