Good article but there is one major flaw with this approach: yt will ban your device after about a week of running this. I’ve tried several things to subvert the ban but the only consistent way I’ve found is to run the script on a cloud instance somewhere.

Also youtube-dl’s results seem to lag about 12 hours for me, so if something was just uploaded it may not get downloaded

Easier to click and tap to access the comment section vs clicking/tapping the small comment icon.

This is a pretty strange point to make, of course it’s easier, it’s the biggest part of the post

Functional consistency. When you click a text post it will send you to the “comment” (post) section, the same way for links.

I’m not sure why one would expect functional consistency when they’re different kind of posts. Most all links go to the content the link is about, when it’s a text post the text is the content. This is just how links work.

Reddit mobile webpage currently sends you to the “comment”

I hope Lemmy can aspire to be better than Reddit ;)


I know but it’s not relevant to my opinion of the UX with the title


Hahaha, well the only argument I can give for link > comments is that people should be reading the article before they comment, otherwise they’re just commenting on the title. Perhaps a setting?


“Reddit and LinkedIn to stop one of the ways they’re spying on you because they got caught.”

clap, clap


I really wish titles for external links went to the external link and not the comment section, breaks my expectation of what is going to happen and then I need to click again to view the content




This is a great list, I wish I had this when I was de-googling my life. While a lot of these alternatives are pretty decent at this point the one the really got me was youtube, nothing really comes close. I ended up settling on a script which wraps youtube-dl.
