Redirector extension settings for having your browser go to Hooktube version of a video when you click on a YouTube link.

Bypasses ads, allows downloading of videos, and strips out all the google tracking.


Thanks. This worked in the Pale Moon browser too, though I had to use an old version from the Firefox site.

If you do add it, please consider sharing it so all vichan boards can benefit.


We're working on sharing our small changes with the vichan community. Not actively, if I'm going to be honest, but this is something we're doing stuff about, albeit slowly.

As for adding hooktube support, we're looking into it.


hooktube crippled/dead now


Definitely crippled since they can no longer use the google API, but it's not dead. You can still watch videos on it, you just can't use it to browse for the time being. I am hoping others that have good YouTube scraping tools get in touch with hooktube and create a workaround.

The API has rules that pretty much require you to use the YouTube embedded client, and hooktube bypasses that, so they lost access to the API.



Guy from /g/ fixed shit via a script.


Is this one of those Monkey or Gearwrench or whatever userscripts?


Unfortunately it seems so. Back to smtube it seems, which works fine, but it was nice to have a browser solution.

Hooktube is officially dead.


That's really sad. What's the best alternative?


probably just using mpv + youtube-downloader if you're on linux


just search youtube using a non-youtube search engine such as searx or (((duckduckgo))), and then play the video itself using mpv (which can automatically obtain the raw video URL using youtube-dl).



Does that help bypass videos that aren't available in your area or are blocked by governments?

Asking for a friend.


no, i don't think so. I think google does ip range blocks for "Not available in your area" type messages, so you'd probably have to use a vpn of sorts. Doesn't hurt to try it though, so if you try it, let us know because I'm honestly not 100% on this.


To further clarify how this wouldn't work, the reason hooktube works, or worked rather, is because it used it's servers as a median. Since it's servers were US-based, you were counted as a US viewer. Using mpv+youtube-dl wouldn't have this same effect (I think), because you'd be accessing it with your normal IP.

>it used its servers as a median
This is not true. Hooktube simply linked the jewglevideo server to the viewer, so the viewer could get the video directly from jewgle. Having to relay all the video content would quickly cause hooktube to run out of bandwidth.


This is correct. Hooktube simply had it's own client, that played the video directly from video.google.com

Since you were accessing the video directly, there was no middle man web client to check if you were allowed to view it.
