I opened a somewhat related issue for Lemmy a while ago, for redirecting links from Youtube to Invidious, from Twitter to Nitter, etc. If that was implemented, there would be no need to post invidious or nitter links directly (and they could be automatically blocked or rewritten).

Instances get shutdown and this leads to nonoperational links.

This is one of the most unfortunate things I’ve seen with the alternative front ends… ppl used to link every video to invidious, and now they’re all broken.

On mobile, it prevents links from being opened in the proper app. There is nothing more frustrating than clicking on a video link on Lemmur and having the browser open an invidious instance instead of NewPipe.

Agree with this one too, as I use newpipe. Ideally newpipe would add domains to their redirects, but that could also be impossible to keep up with.

I don’t have a strong opinion either way, cause it should be a community consensus thing. The only thing I am opinionated about, is that lemmy not overwrite links… it should be agnostic about the links that are getting posted to a link aggregator.

I have the same sentiment, especially for the last paragraph.

The problem is you need to actually tell everyone about the addon.

Maybe instead of Lemmy warning the users we can have a bot that informs them and offer a link to the alternative front end and addon.

Add-ons are not allowed in every web browser and the same add-on and equivalent could not exist in the other web browsers.

Scripts need direct browser support or an addon to be used in mostly every case.

It is still an issue.

What I like to do when posting a YouTube video is use an Invidious link by default, but also provide two alternate links (youtube.com & invidious.redirect.io) in the body of the post.

I find invidious, nitter, etc. links very annoying. If I had a problem using the source site, I’d handle it myself.

Invidious links are always better unless a peertube, mediagoblin link or a video hosted through html on one’s own site exists. By having YouTube links, Lemmy would encourage YouTube frontend for those who don’t have NewPipe or a redirecting plugin.

I would think this in the opposite sense: I don’t like them at all because I want to replace that way to distribute content, not because there are plenty alternatives for these who “don’t like” main service.

In addition, as ethics must go first as a filter, the FLOSS replacement or adaptation must be always be first and, after that, the rest and not the way you are suggesting.

EDIT: this is a pretty old fediverse discusion (like 2 years ago if I remember well).
