Ok, good to know … I found this issue and posted on lemmy support.


Safari appears not to accept new CSP on iphone ios

Since the new CSP (great work btw) I have not been able to connect on iOS and was able to do a free cross-browser test on lambdatest dot com. It shows that the websocket api does not show in the CSP directive (see attached screenshots). It basically looks like you would need to modify the connect-sr…


Is this still working for you on iPhone? I had issues before the websockets timeout bump, but just ran back into the same issue in past couple days. The original fix still seems to be in place codewise


Perhaps some early systems like usenet, mosaic, irc, etc benefitted from government and university funding. Even google received help from National Science Foundation and lemmy has a little help from NLnet :)

Getting a grant to build a FOSS federated Uber might be tough these days, so you all have a good point about the resource requirements being real.


but if you want to see an alternative that works at scale you’d better be ready to subscribe to that patreon or your providers are not going to make it. As usual, it’s about $.

I’m really not qualified to opine on this, so I would love to hear from someone who is, but it strikes me that Free as well as “open source” has been around a lot longer than Patreon and Github sponsors and it is recent phenomenon to see stuff like developers pan-handling in npm messages. I don’t think it’s about the money, it might be a temporarily overcrowded or misguided space. I will be happy to be corrected though, as whatever form it takes, it’s a good popular spirit while it lasts.


If you are going for maximum privacy on invidious, it might be good to include the proxy video preference to keep from connecting to youtube.


libre js is along those lines but I found it very hard to use https://www.gnu.org/software/librejs/index.html


At the time I was still trying to get off gmail and used an alias to register so the email came there. So now in my (and that of all gmail users who receives similar email) google file that username is probably attached. In this case it really doesn’t matter, but in my former post about bitcoin transactions, it could for some people. The idea is that as a best practice don’t send account info in the metadata, or best yet not at all.

Part of the header is created when the sender creates the email to send to the recipient. This will include such information as when the email was composed, who composed it, the subject line and to whom the email is being sent. This is the part of the header that you are most familiar seeing as the Date:, From:, To:, and Subject: lines on the top of your email. https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/what-can-you-learn-from-an-email-header-metadata/

I’m definitely rooting for peertube and use as much as possible, but I wouldn’t mind if invidious lived on as a small clunky niche project that flys somewhat undee the radar. Not sure the devs would agree…


I can actually use the instance https://invidious.snopyta.org including the search engine. I also would like to find an alternative.

same. it was broken for a day and some new glitches with channels popped up, but still beats using yt, especially with proxy option. I was watching all night tonight.

one other thing that seems to work pretty well is going directly to the video which can be facilitated by following the rss feed for a channel you like, e.g. https://invidious.snopyta.org/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=<channel-id>


Note that enabling proxy may slow down your network, so choose a reliable instance.

Probably due to the characteristics of my connection, I find going through proxies on yewtube and snopyta actually speeds up the entire experience. I also make sure to select a theme so it doesn’t have to detect my settings.

Didn’t know about sepiasearch, had tried peertube index but it’s still challenging to find specific topics. I tried for about a week to switch to peertube from invidious, but youtube backend is unfortunately still where its at. I fear invidious will get a circumventing TOS takedown like ytdl in the months to come, but that could be a silver lining for peertube.


What are reddit post tags?


This article reminded me of this post…

Dead mink are rising from their graves in Denmark after a rushed cull over fears of a coronavirus mutation led to thousands being slaughtered and buried in shallow pits – from which some are now emerging.

This very good and clear. Probably a top way to do it. Another less tested way is to simply select all your photos and hit download. My photos were about 10GB and I did it all one swoop. The same post processing steps still need to take place so this manual and script would probably help.

Cheers to the author for clarity and support for all users.
