FreeTube

The Official blog for FreeTube - The YouTube client built for privacy

Hello everyone! I hope that everyone has been doing well recently. If you feel like you haven't heard from me in a while, then that means that you haven't read my last few updates. I highly recommend you give those a read when you're done here. The TLDR is that I've been spending a lot of time rewriting FreeTube in the past few months and there won't be many updates to the live release while I work on it. Today's update will be about fixing a few things that have been causing problems with FreeTube recently.

Hey everyone,

Most of you are likely aware at this point, but there have been some very nasty issues lately with videos unable to play. The TLDR of it is that YouTube has been IP banning servers that scrape their site much more aggressively than they have in the past.

Hey everyone! It's been quiet recently, but that doesn't mean progress isn't being made. I've been hard at work on the latest big feature for FreeTube, local profiles! It has been highly requested recently to have some way to organize your subscriptions in some sort of “folder” or “category”. My solution to making this happen will be with local profiles and in this blog I will be giving you a quick look at how is works.
