The redirects

Today I decided to install some new services on my VPS to avoid some silos. I like to follow a lot of stuff that usually ends up sending me to YouTube, X, or Reddit. I needed to circumvent that.


The first is YouTube, which started this all this morning. I recieved an email from a site I follow and they said they started a new podcast, it was on YouTube. I will not get into how if it's on YouTube it's not a podcast. Either way, I wanted to partake but didn't want to go to the tubes. Instead I installed Invideous on my server which is an alternative front-end to YouTube. It allows me to watch the videos and subscribe to channels Google free.


As you could guess Nitter is the same thing but for Twitter(X). This way when a news story sends me to a twitter link I can avoid that beast entirely.


Again the same, though I rarely use reddit, I feel it completes the set.


I would love to see the same thing for the Meta Properties(Instagram, Facebook, and Threads) and TikTok. Maybe it will exist some day.
