Pinned toot

Hello !

I am person behind FreeTube, the private YouTube client for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

I enjoy talking about technology and privacy so my toots will mostly be about those, but there will be a good amount of toots about FreeTube as well.

I'm also looking for more people to follow! Let me know if you have any suggestions.

What sort of documentation would you like to see created for ? I'm starting plans to move our current wiki over to a new static site. While I'm at it, I may add some extra documentation along with it. I'm open to suggestions and would like to see what the community thinks is missing.

version 0.11.3 has just been released! This release fixes the recent issues with channels / comments not loading properly. We also merged a change to improve the usability of the search bar.

Just a quick PSA that a leak was discovered with the Proxy functionality in FreeTube. This occurs when using certain modules for the local API where they bypass the proxy settings. Watching a video is one of the modules where this occurs. Watching the video itself will be proxied properly however the fetching of the video URL will not. I've already made this fix in the dev branch and will include it in the next release. Be aware of this issue when using the proxy settings in

Okay. We should be good now. I've released v0.11.1 which is a hotfix that fixes the issue with search not working. Sorry to make everyone update again! We had a problem with one of our modules that I didn't catch in time.

I think I broke search from a last minute change. Sorry about that! I'll get this fixed here in a little bit.

New update is live :)

Release v0.11.0 brings back a lot of missing features from before we released the rewrite. This includes proxy support along with the ability to save videos to a dedicated list.

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that @PINE64 is releasing a Mobian Community Edition of the #pinephone! This is a major milestone for our project, which started less than a year ago as a way to bring Debian to this
mobile device!
10$ of each device sold will be donated to @mobian. See more soon about this on our blog at
blog.mobian-project.org

Been keeping this development train rolling today and got another good feature ready. I was able to finish up basic video saving functionality. This is using some playlist logic underneath but will only allow you to save one list of videos. I'll be releasing it with this behavior but when user playlists are finished, all the videos in this list will be migrated to a "Favorites" playlist automatically. Really excited to get this out to everyone.

Tor / Proxy support was just added to the development branch. This will tunnel all FreeTube traffic through a proxy of your choice with support for Tor / SOCKS5. Expect to see it included when the next release drops (hopefully soon).

Got the video loop functionality finished for the next release. I was really surprised that Video.js doesn't have a basic plugin like this any where for use already. There was technically one available but the UI was fairly ugly and had too much functionality for what I was wanting in the plugin.

I ended up writing my own plugin and baked it into FreeTube. May branch it out into it's own repo at some point. I imagine others would like something similar.

Another thing I'd like to do for the new year is to try to use this account more for things other than announcements. My initial plans for this account was to do personal / none FreeTube related updates as well. Should I try to do this more? Or should I just stick to FreeTube related updates?

I just pushed out a new blog post detailing the plans and roadmap for in 2021. Feel free to give it a read and let me know what you think.
