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.



Oh, most definitely. But, at least Windows can be heavily customized with one relatively safe method. (Well, perhaps even more than one, but I never really bothered to look that far into it myself.)


Rainmeter isn’t shady at all, and it’s actually FOSS, but regardless I can’t imagine that someone using Windows would care about any that in the first place.


You can do a lot more than that using things like UXTheme patchers and Rainmeter. Don’t get me wrong, using third-party patches and applications to extend Windows’ customization options is far from ideal, but you’re completely exaggerating just how limited customization on Windows actually is. I say this as someone who wouldn’t touch Windows with a 10 foot pole.


That’s why it’s “/c/desktops” and not “/c/windowsdesktops.” Windows isn’t the only non-Unix operating system, I might add.


It’s also just a good place to post if you don’t really care for the name “Unix Porn.” …


If you fancy something like Paint.NET, you might consider Pinta. Pinta is FOSS and supports a number of operating systems.



FreeTube uses its own local API now, but it has Invidious as an option too, as well as using it as a fallback for when the local API fails.


One that works quite well is youtube-local, granted you don’t mind having rather limited quality options. However, you could also just use it to browse YouTube and open the links in SMPlayer if you want to watch in 1080p or higher.
