Another small utility I wrote in as a part of my expedition into and narratives is torwatch.

A simple CLI tool to watch videos in small resolution over tor and . Invidious is easier to connect to than youtube directly -- it does not reject tor.
It could be a script, but I chose Rust for exercise.

Usage wise it has one url to specify and 2 optional flags: if you want to have a bigger resolution or if you want audio only.

Actual security is unknown.

@houkimenator Hooo I never thought about doing it over Tor!
I use a little script myself and added a 3rd argument: start time in seconds.
mplayer/mpv prints playback time to the terminal.
So when stopping a longer video I can auto-seek to my last position!
