8ch now supports Hooktube embed thumbnails as per desuarchive.org/sudo/thread/40654/

From now on use Hooktube.com embeds in place of Youtube.com embeds

Using HK prevents the YT video from increasing view count and ad revenue

Isn't Hooktube owned by a goon?

Anyways, the real reason it should be used is that the youtube channel will be unable to see it has been posted here.

Nice timing; YouTube is entering the gun control debate with a new ban on videos which demo firearms or link to websites selling firearms or firearm accessories.

HK is not a YT replacement. Think of it as more of a server-side proxy that interfaces with part of youtube’s existing API such that it retrieves the video without adding to the view count and bypasses age or region restrictions.

d.tube is an full replacement/alternative to youtube. Gun channels et al. should move there.

Logan Long

No idea. I'm reasonably sure the owner posts here though, so maybe he'll show up.

this is false, you are still hitting google servers directly to get the video, not hooktube. hooktube provides no more functionality than youtube-dl does.

hooktube is not an alternative for posting a webm/mp4

Ryan Perez

Still it prevents them from being monetized therefore it is better than youtube itself.

Of course webm>all.

Hooktube is objectively worse for privacy than using Youtube directly. Hooktube is just a thin wrapper, all of the real video data still comes from Youtube's servers. So now you aren't just letting Youtube track what you watch, you're also letting Hooktube track what you watch.

Hooktube is owned by god knows who and exists purely to collect information on those who are paranoid and spiteful but too stupid to pull up the developer tools and see what domains are being contacted. Even worse it creates a false sense of security that discourages people from demanding webms, the only actual practical method we have of reducing our tracking. Adding Hooktube embeds to Holla Forums was either an act of naivety or subtle malice.

hooktube provides no more functionality than youtube-dl does.
Youtube-dl is a command-line program. Hooktube is web implementation for it + a proxy.

hooktube is not an alternative for posting a webm/mp4
Hooktube is an alternative to posting direct Youtube links. Use Webm/mp4 when possible, but if the video cannot fit in 16MB, use Hooktube instead of youtube. Or upload to Dtube.

you are still hitting google servers directly to get the video
False. Hooktube is a web proxy + Youtube-dl. With Youtube-dl alone you cannot download videos restricted from your region.

Robert Flores
Robert Flores

So what's the point?
google is tracking the downloads, they have the accurate view count
Hooktube is web implementation for it + a proxy
hooktube is not a proxy, you connect to the google servers directly to access the video. it does proxy the search functionality, but that is irrelevant for hooktube embeds.
False. Hooktube is a web proxy + Youtube-dl
False. Hooktube does not proxy the download, it is only a proxy for the search function. It functions in the same way as youtube-dl, only it hands off the direct link to the video to the browser.

WRONG
Go click OP's video, open up the network tab of the developer console, refresh and watch. The largest resource (i.e. the video) comes directly from a googlevideo.com subdomain.

Gun channels can also move to Full30. The primary issue is that youtube, much like twitter, have so much market share that it makes difficult to move to an alternative. A half measure like hooktube is fine for costing youtube clicks and money, but we also need to be promoting other video sharing sites.

I'll take this opportunity to ask what should be the designated youtube replacement. d.tube has been posted, but I don't have any experience with it. Should the alternative to youtube even be on the clearnet?

Agreed. The ideal browser solution would be to use github.com/woodruffw/ff2mpv and set it to use the equivalent of `torsocks mpv $URL`. I personally just copy and paste any youtube URL but I'm not sure everyone is willing to do that. If anyone knows of a better one that's updated to use webextentions post it.
Here's a webm guide that I'm updating soon™

because creating a web-ext front-end for ffmpeg/youtube-dl/streamlink is bloat. not to mention it has to receive a kosher stamp from mozilla and google to be listed in their app stores and even be installed into the browsers now.

I have a feeling jewgle would not take kindly to a web-ext that exists for the sole purpose of ripping content from websites.

Don't tell me nobody fucking knows what the fuck Hooktube is. This is why open-source code is preferred, if we don't even know what people are fucking linking to and we just added embedding since people said it'd cut views since they were just shilling it. If it was just through the site it'd be one thing but it's still linking Google and Youtube thumbnails.

I don't see why someone couldn't just make an embed api for youtube-dl, unless it's just too much of a bitch to maintain. Unless it's about being afraid of jewtube links being taken down you're still getting your ass tracked enabling youtube embeds, but I imagine a lot of people (like ) just don't give a shit out of convenience.

Watch with MPV/MPV-youtube-dl-binding extenstion does just that. You either press the browser icon or right click on the link/embed and select 'Watch with MPV'. The extenstion pretty much saves you the trouble of copy and pasting the link into the commandline

mpv ytdl://LINK

Henry Reed

make an embed api for youtube-dl
what's the point? you could write a web-ext to pump all youtube-embed links through youtube-dl, and then replace them with direct video links, but it would be a massive pain in the ass and slow down page load considerably, and for what benefit? your still hitting jewgle servers, the fact that they don't show page views if you hit the video link directly is completely on google, but you can be well sure they are tracking those numbers, along with the ip address that hits them, indefinitely.

you could combine this with a proxy but as a service you put out for others goes, the bandwidth cost on that would be absurd.

Gavin Martin
Gavin Martin

i think your confused about what exactly youtube-dl does. youtube-dl is a scraper. a link to an embed or a page with a video goes in, a file / direct download link comes out.

there would be no "youtube-dl embed api". youtube-dl is client side. if you wanted to embed a direct link to mp4/webm, i've never tried that, that should be an option if it doesn't exist. instead of uploading a 16MB max size webm, just allow direct links and hotlink that shit off someone else's bandwidth. that's essentially what hooktube is doing with google's embed.

Brayden Harris
Brayden Harris

streamlink does this too, you can give it a player on the command line and it'll pump the stream to the player instead of to a file. streamlink is meant for livestreams but it works on static videos too.

Jayden Russell
Jayden Russell

Thanks user. For browsers that are compatible with it I use Watch with MPV otherwise I just copy and paste the link into the command line since it really isn't that much more work. I'll keep streamlink in mind now since it is always good to have multiple options on hand.

For many reasons, a mere log hit on various servers is not what is recorded as a visit. What is recorded is the occasion that scripts run on your page load, such that the appropriate cookie is set. This is how they verify that an actual browser has loaded the site.

Sure, they keep logs, but these other logs can be incredibly meaningless, and there's a good chance the NSA ignores them, in its major algorithms. If it became a more manual task, it's doubtless someone would notice. But it's the automation we have to concern ourselves about, the algorithms, and the AI.

Using HK prevents the YT video from increasing view count and ad revenue

So therefore further restricting both the reach of redpilling videos and the financial rewards to the few people still able to monetise their videos. Great plan!

Colton Baker
Colton Baker

The financial rewards have already been snipped off. The only ones still getting rewards are kikes. So you are calling on kikes to be supported.

What's that? Oh yes, there's a thread about this. it's from this week. Gun channels are pretty much banned from YouTube at this point:

Cameron Cooper
Cameron Cooper

There are still a few that haven't been hit yet. Plus that still doesn't address the fact that using HookTube to prevent the view count from increasing helps prevent the likelihood of the videos being seen by more people on YouTube. I wish there were more people as intelligent as me around who could also see through this bullshit.

I agree. Youtube is obviously being selective in its promotions, it doesn't care about quality.

There is also a firefox extension that lets you block entire youtube channels from ever showing up on your webbrowser.

This way you wont see any niggers ever again.
