RIP YouTube Vanced. It was great while it lasted. Luckily we don't need to go back to the official app on mobile, there are still alternatives that don't suck nearly as much.16
i recently realised that youtube is the single most addictive app for me.
- it has reels that doesn't impact your usual video. reels is already a very addictive feature, but having this ability to watch many 1 min videos without losing my current video's timestamp, the search feed, the history and the home feed, it makes a great way to spend 1 hour on a 10 mins video
- it's AI is world class and recommends videos/channels that are full of content that i would watch
- it has a butt load of content.
- vanced/ ad blockers makes it possible to watch videos without ads, so makes the whole experience more grappling.
i spent 3-4 hours on it each day and another 2-3 hours during work. when it's not open as a tab on laptop, its open in my mobile.
youtube feels like a very nasty, evil product as i realise all this.
do you people feel the same about youtube? any detox tips?9
I just found out YouTube ReVanced now has a kind of working patcher for android. It was easy to use and I don't have to use outdated vanced anymore. I can also choose which individual patches I want to used.
It's really nice. Even for people who don't want adblock and only want dislikes back since you can just disable that patch. I don't get why anyone wouldn't want to use it.9
I was using an old version of youtube vanced (out of reasons) and today i opened it and i cant dismiss that page :(
"Newer" versions of vanced still work though14
