The one thing I don't like about Hooktube is that videos can't be set to 144p, I think the 'low' setting is 640p. Sometimes I like to just listen to things and conserve data/bandwidth.

If you click download you can open a link to audio only through hook tube.

You can set it to Normal Embed the YouTube player in the video size popup, then set to 144p like normally.

144p? for ppl using flip-phones from the nineties?

If you like to just listen to things, then maybe an audio-only link could be an option.

That would be nice, because then we could set an option to never open imgur or youtube, and not have to dig through comments for a mirror link.

HookTube vs. YouTube would be an easy one to do. That's just a simple substitution in the URL, and the bits still come from the same place.

Automatically creating non-imgur links is a whole different beast. You would have to have the site interface directly with imgoat/imgtc/whatever and provide the original URL, wait for the rehosting site to download the original image, then come back with a new link. That's a lot more work and a lot more overhead.

I agree Hooktube could be added without much effort.

Voat could partner with derram's rehosting bot and just add a link to his mirrors. But I have no idea how to do this technically.
