TNT BOM BOM:
Regarding youtube-dl , you can use it with onion invdious. But for me i wouldnt use it because it add loads on the nodes and TorProject prohibited torrenting for rational reason which is to prevent the downloading load over the Tor.
Invalid. Not even Tor Project asks for that.
Tor Project always warn us of the downloading stuff like pdf,docx…etc
and pre-advise to not open while you are connected to the internet.
A real video - which is difficult to figure out what file type they
really downloaded - since most users don’t understand file extensions
and Windows stupidly hides file extensions by default - would be
preferable to viewing in browser.
Thats why its better to do it from invidious not youtube so that you
avoid to be in touch with google directly.
I doubt he’s proxying all the traffic? It’s just a frontend. Meaning,
backends, i.e. videos are still coming from youtube.
MitM but between you and Google/YB , but lets see:
Good in theory but in practice irrelevant since no one reads the
unmodiifed since last visit or at least checks the signature of the
will notice easily.
- Youtube uses closed source ssl certificate , Invidious use open
source ssl which is let encrypt.
There’s no such thing as Open Source SSL certificate. Private keys must
conceptually stay private.
- Youtube you cant have except ssl/tls security , Invidious support
onion v2 and v3 domain.
Well, and Invidious then fetches the video over TLS before that. So the
chain is still only as secure as TLS. No end-to-end onion encryption.
- You cant watch videos in youtube without allowing youtube/google JS,
You can do that with invidious.
