Description

https://invidio.us/ is a version of youtube that works properly on TBB at high security level (even without javascript)

and also can watch youtube videos without adding views, tracking, advertisements, country restrictions, age restriction and etc...

"Invidious is similar to what HookTube used to be, but doesn't use the YouTube API similar to NewPipe. It's also Open Source which is pretty great. The developer is pretty awesome and is very active in our Matrix server. Feel free to stop by and say hi to him if you'd like."

for some reason, it isn't working on TBB 8.0

comment:2 Changed 14 months ago by cypherpunks3

It isn't working on TB 8.0a10 (and not TBB!) because the security slider is currently broken due to a change in NoScript, that should be fixed on TB 8.0 stable and subsequent alpha release.

it was working at high security level without javascript in 7.5 series, now in 8.0 series it was broken even at stable release

is this for our screencasts?

tested with TB 8.5a1:

  • browsing videos works well!
  • watching videos doesn't work with feature filter ("Safest") and js enabled
  • works in "Safe" made although it spins a lot and the console is filled with Image corrupt or truncated., also once
    [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0xc1f30001 (NS_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED) [nsIMessageSender.sendAsyncMessage]"  nsresult: "0xc1f30001 (NS_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED)"  location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/ExtensionUtils.jsm :: sendAsyncMessage :: line 533"  data: no]  (unknown)
    	sendAsyncMessage resource://gre/modules/ExtensionUtils.jsm:533:51
    	_handleMessage/deferred.promise< resource://gre/modules/MessageChannel.jsm:984:9
    
  • youtube-dl manages to download videos, good!
