This has been a topic which has bugged me for a bit and I’m interested in other’s opinions. With the recent Google crackdowns in YouTube alternatives, I’ve been reconsidering what I use for viewing video creator content.
I’m probably going to end up dropping the bottom three services and then signup for YT Premium and use a VPN to mask my IP. This would eliminate the need for the other services and allow me to support creators the same way I do on Nebula. Albeit at more cost for less privacy than Nebula .
What are your stances on YT frontends (NewPipe, Invidious, FreeTube, etc)? What are your thoughts on the impact it has on creator revenue? I don’t have the income to sign up for everyone’s Patreon, but want to make sure I am not a silent revenue void for them either.
