Nice, I’ve never used this before, thx.
The same goes for desktop element and signal apps… and some privative ones I’m forced to use such as slack, :(
maybe not so for freetube, since at the moment I think there still isn’t a self-hosted version, but I’m willing to bet for element the key is the fact that they already have a web version, so they probably use in both occasions the same base library to talk with servers (I HAVEN’T VERIFIED THIS CLAIM).
From a code reuse POV, it makes sense, otherwise I agree on not linking electron.
Those are good observations, let the team know so that they can consider it
Freetube is great, I just wish it wouldnt take 5+ seconds to start.
It opens to me as fast as a Pop-up, it may differ for several reasons, the bandwidth you have, some security software that interferes, system configuration …
Okay its really more like 2 seconds, but that still seems quite long. I have very fast internet, Manjaro without strange security software, and getting this on two devices.
I currently use Windows 10 (privatized 😏) with a 100 Mbs fiber connection on a basic Laptop (Lenovo 8Gb + 2 Gb GPU). As I said, for my FT it opens less than 1 second. Anyway, I think that 2 seconds is a delay with which you can live, in view of the other advantages that FT has.
I too have the same opening delay. Wonder if it has to do with the fact it’s running on wayland, so it has to also wait for xwayland.
I tried forcing ozone, but it didn’t seem to work, xeyes still tracked the mouse movement while hovering on freetube.
