  • (2021-03-14) Amus3d Wr3kg: not maintained -- old code. UNINSTALL THIS IMMEDIATELY received an error that with Invidious I had experienced a bug and to open a ticket with the github project. I did, was told it that the code was incredibly old and they had nothing to do with this extension. Devs that do not maintain their code leaves your browsers vulnerable to malware. DO NOT USE THIS.
  • (2021-02-22) R no: Just installed it. Great idea! 502 bad gateway on instagram. Twitter a little funky, bad tbh twitter is thrash. Really lonking forward for a Linkedin and Quora frontend! Thank you!
  • (2021-02-05) Scheff Ki: Adding "Open link using Privacy Redirect" in the context menu of the browsers secondary mouseclick (on hyperlinks) would be very useful. Maybe as an optional feature in the addons preferences. For people who haven't activated the addon generally/globally. I hope this sounds reasonable for the developers, too. Thank you in advance. I like this addon very much, appreciate your work. =)
  • (2021-01-11) Djamy DOE: J'ai ce module depuis pratiquement la sortie (du moins en test pour un article. Il esst acttif pmais je ne l utilise pas, Là j'ai passé 1h à isoler un problème, en réinitialisant Chrome, diverses analyses MBAM, AdwareCleaner, et réseaux J'ai isolé le module qui posait problème, il est le seul actif Dès lors qu'on utilise google on a des redirections sur d'autres moteurs de recherche (Google search hijacked) Si je désactive le module tout redevient normal Une explication peut être ?
  • (2020-09-29) Douglas Lang: Invidious: "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed, or because the format is not supported" on Chrome current (85). Okay, so then why am I then being presented with so many video links that "fail to load"? I dId everything possible to make this app function including GitLab's uMatrix workaround. UNINSTALLED!!

  • (2020-08-01) Keith Bruggemann: Works for everything except twitter. Can't get nitter to come up in place of any twitter URL
  • (2020-07-02) Malte Kiefer: Thanks for this amazing tool. Can you make an option to redirect Google Search to DuckDuckGo or different pages? And Google Translate to https://www.deepl.com/translator

  • (2020-06-16, v:1.1.34) Em Squared: No Twitter graphical or video content
    Add-on works great in Firefox 77.0.1 on Linux Mint 19 but no joy on 2 chrome derived browsers; Vivaldi 3.1.1929.34 and Brave Version 1.10.90 as twitter posts contain no graphical or video content at all (greyed out, cannot load).
