01:33:59@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowI'm not really interested in using something that isn't in browser
01:34:51@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTFair enough. I won't try to to change your mind. I figured I'd atleast mention it in case you weren't aware of it.
01:37:01@cloudrac3r:cadence.moe:8111cloudrac3rmy technical issues was referring to the complexities of dash, cors, and proxying.
01:38:14@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbow yeah appreciate it PrestonFT the main reason I prefer in browser is because I have an ultrawide display and extension that removes black bars from videos that are in ultrawide formats but have baked in black bars for widescreen displays
01:38:24@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowso an application wouldn't have that functionality unfortunately

my technical issues was referring to the complexities of dash, cors, and proxying.

It's complex, but most of the work is already done. The player already shows the separate video qualities. You would just have to have it select the default quality on load.

I'm assuming you mean when fullscreening? I use an ultrawide as well, and FreeTube doesn't show black bars unless you fullscreen the video.

01:40:18@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowunless the video has baked in black bars
01:40:27@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTWait, nevermind. Depends on how large you have the application.
01:40:52@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTI typically have 2 apps on at all times, so FreeTube for me only takes up half the screen.
01:41:06@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbownah I still think you're missing the point
01:41:17@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowif the video was rendered with black bars in it, they will still be shown
01:41:24@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowbecause the player just thinks its part of the content
01:41:41@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbow"Ultrawidify" detects black bars and crops in videos so they aren't shown
01:43:33@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTAhh, okay. I see. FreeTube is built off of Electron which is more or less a browser. There isn't any technical reason the extension couldn't be included. Though I'm not familiar with the extension so I'd have to look into it before making a decision like that.
01:46:29@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowyeah I figured that's likely true, though I'd have no idea how to get that to work and it'd likely be something the dev would have to implement
01:46:33@cloudrac3r:cadence.moe:8111cloudrac3rThat sounds interesting actually
01:47:05@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTDisclaimer: I'm the dev, haha. It's my call at the end of the day.
01:47:30@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowoh well there you go lol
01:47:44@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowget on it :P
01:47:59@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTIs the extension open source? I could look into it at some point.
01:48:12@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowhonestly no idea
01:48:15@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowprobably not
01:49:21@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTIf it isn't then I probably won't include it. Closed source inclusions would go against FreeTube's scope.
01:49:32@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowyeah no doubt
02:02:02@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT The extension appears to be on GitHub, however there isn't a licence attached to it, which means it technically still isn't FOSS.
02:19:21@reynbow:matrix.orgreynbowright right
02:41:22@cloudrac3r:cadence.moe:8111cloudrac3rCould always open an issue and ask the author to add a licence 👀
02:54:27@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT Looks like they made a comment about it a while back, though it looks like mentioning it again may be worth it.
03:13:19@cloudrac3r:cadence.moe:8111cloudrac3rWhat a shame...
