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?

Here are my thoughts on the recent announcement of Invidious shutting down soon. I also go over what this means for both Invidious and FreeTube in the future. If you have any questions regarding this, please let me know.

Hey all,

It was recently announced that Invidious will be shutting down in September. I don't know for sure what will happen to the project. I'll be making an announcement on what this means for FreeTube as soon as I have time.

If you want a TLDR on my opinion of the , it's a really cool device with a ton of promise to show what a Linux smartphone experience will look like.

The software still has a few ways to go before it can be used as a daily driver but I'm very pleased with the progress that is here.

If you decide to buy a Pinephone, I'd suggest installing for the best experience at this time.
