hook tube is a superior service. If they could find a way to archive deleted stuff or even have their own comment section as well as show youtubes like they have now.

I would imagine Jewtube isn't too happy with HT as it is. Once they would start hosting content, I think the threat would increase and they might start coming after them. That would also open HT up to DMCA and cease and desist letters. Frankly, I'm surprised HT has lasted this long.

There's also the possibility of all the lawsuits YouTube had to endure over the last decade happening to HookTube as well. It definitely can't handle Viacom.

Thank you kindly. You've actually given me a good reason to use it over regular YT with adblock.

Glad to have helped. When I can I always try to use Hooktube now.

I use UBlock and NoScript. But I'm open to alternative solutions if a better option comes along.

I switched over to Ublock awhile ago. The non fucky version.

Hooktube is great.

I'm blocked from it at work, though. Our security software thinks "Hooktube" involves prostitution.

I think /u/Swack_ (the creator) said that the domain used to be used for a porn site, but the previous owners ditched it so he snagged it for himself.

Here's a shortcut you can paste into a bookmark and leave on your toolbar for easy access.

javascript:(function(){%20%20var%20nsfw_url%20=%20window.location.href%20;var%20isyt%20=%20nsfw_url.indexOf("youtube.com");if%20(isyt%20!=%20-1%20&&%20nsfw_url.indexOf("hooktube.com")%20==%20-1){%20var%20final%20=%20nsfw_url.replace("youtube.com",%20"hooktube.com");%20window.location%20=%20final;%20}%20%20%20else%20{alert%20("You%20have%20to%20be%20on%20youtube.com%20for%20this%20to%20work!");}%20%20%20})();

i like the how you made it only run on/alert people if they're on yt. very profesh. here i've been just manually replacing "hook" for "you" on the URL. can't believe i never thought of doing this. didn't think bookmarks worked this way

Are there any scripts for Tampermonkey to auto convert all YouTube URLs possible to HookTube? I don't even want to give them one click.

I also tried the Redirector addon mentioned here: https://voat.co/v/whatever/2213123/10902545 It works good so far.

Edit: The icon just disappeared and the configuration was lost. I don't know why.

Das Monkey does not have permissions (at the browser level) to do such a thing.

Which is a bummer.

the amount of hooktube shilling on this site is mind blowing.

Same for all these dead link image hosts that are now defunct. The amount of site link rot on voat is significant due to these short lived alternatives getting shilled so hard on voat.

This particular one is just asinine though. Stealing money from youtube contributors, many of whom are tirelessly working to better America and deserve our support.

So Jewtube censoring left and right is a-ok, so you'll only get biased videos, and they still deserve to harvest and sell your data?

Fine if you're ok with that. Fuck off to YT them, and leave other folk alone.

Youtube is just shooting themselves in the foot. Would I give Hooktube a second look if they weren't doing it? Nope.

You do realize you can edit the HT address to a YT address and go straight there? It's a little thing called "free choice". You like freedom, don't you?

Well, if its any consolation, I donate to YouTubers on MakerSupport. Though I'm still trying to get people to get on MakerSupport so I can. Until then, I don't have any way to financially support the YouTubers I like since I give the middle finger to Patreon and Paypal.

I wish I could shill for shekels. Where do I sign up. I've got bills to pay but my melanin levels preclude me from gibs.

Good to know, now i don't have to sign in to watch that stuff. Does it work on "adult" stuff too?

hm, when trying to watch it directly on jewtube, it asked me to sign in, but i can watch the embedded video on voat just fine. And Hooktube works either way.
