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.

@FreeTube it's a great read! I love FreeTube, the rewrite was really worth it IMO. But a question: has #peertube integration ever been considered? It's a great feature in #newpipe, but there is no real desktop alternative for that 😋

@Bloodaxe

It's definitely something that would be neat to include, though it's likely a feature that's gonna be a bit too ambitious for the time being. I want to focus solely on the YouTube functionality and if we no longer need to do that then I can consider another service. PeerTube would be at the top of my list however.

@FreeTube @Bloodaxe i agree with peertube. It would be nice to have it. And I would prefere bigger updates and less frequent. And thanks for your work

@FreeTube I hope you’re doing fine. I really like the way you asked for our opinion. Personally, I prefer big updates and scheduled (like every 3 months we got a some new features, a bunch of bug fixes). I think it’s better for your time as you can better organise your time, get things done neatly and keep going to the next level.

I noticed you didn’t talk about the Local API which has a lot of fallbacks to the Invidious. I hope you’ll tweak it more this year.

@FreeTube I appreciate you work a lot and I’m testing every single feature you add. Keep up the perfect work you’re doing... Happy new year to you and your family, may you achieve all your objectives and plans.

I'm doing just fine thanks for asking :)

Ultimately updates will happen when I'm able to find time to do them, so I won't force them to happen faster just for the sake of it. I mostly want to get everyone's opinion on what everyone else prefers.

Also have you updated to v0.10.0? Most of the local API problems should be fixed now. The notification to update was broken in v0.9.3 so it wasn't able to properly make everyone aware of the update. That should be fixed in new releases though.

@FreeTube Yes, I’m using the latest version (0.10.0). The error appear exactly every time I open FreeTube.

1- After a laptop reboot or the app force close, I launch FreeTube and I’m ending at the an empty “Subscriptions” page (even though I have subscriptions)

2- I use the reload button then error messages appear at the bottom while the red bar is progressing.

@stubbornphoenix

The first issue is known and it's something that I plan on looking into.

The second one is a new issue and something I'll have to look into. I can't say I've seen that error before.

@FreeTube Hello and happy New Year! I would prefer less frequent updates rather than minor ones with not significant let's say features. Keep up the good work.

@FreeTube I have no problem with less frequent updates. I prefer that type of update schedule.

@FreeTube

More frequent updates would be nice that'd mean the playlist and favorite features would be available quicker.

Thanks for all the work!
