13:56:47@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT It is. It's not even close to how it's supposed to be organized. The current codebase also completely ignores some tools that actually make Vue useful.
13:57:29@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTI started the implementation when I was learning Vue. Now that I have a better understanding of it I realize how poorly it was put together.

"Grab videos locally" only does anything if you're using the legacy player. Enabling it will also revert to the legacy player as a fallback if the Invidious instance has IP blocking issues.
what is legacy player?
15:07:42@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT It's essentially the default video player within Electron that plays the legacy video formats provided by YouTube. These videos are easier to play and don't rely on Invidious to play as well. The default player is a DASH player that allows for higher video qualities than what the legacy formats provides.

truth right here.
15:28:48@cloudrac3r:cadence.moe:8111cloudrac3rcloudtube really needs a rewrite lol
15:29:14@cloudrac3r:cadence.moe:8111cloudrac3rI have since learned about semantic HTML, server-side templates, and stateful JS components

Thanks. I have just connected to my HDMI TV, so high quality versions would be good. Is there a way to force the DASH player to be used?
16:16:10@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTIt should be the default player, though you can choose your default player (along with the default quality) in the settings.
16:31:27@pikey:privacytools.iopikeythanks very much
16:42:17@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT You're welcome! :)
17:17:40@pikey:privacytools.iopikey🙂
20:03:42@aywellington:matrix.orgaywellingtonCan we enqueue videos to the mini-player?
20:21:45@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT Unfortunately you cannot. It's something I'd like to do for a future update though.

20:25:45@claen:matrix.orgclaenguys, my subs arent loading today. Just blank placeholders. Videos wont load. I grabbed the latest update to see if that would help, no change.
20:32:04@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT It'll be a little bit later before I can look into it. For now my only suggestion would be to try a different Invidious instance and see if that works for you.
20:32:29@claen:matrix.orgclaengotcha, thanks. DIdnt even know that was an option :)
20:34:00@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFTYep. Available in the Settings. There should also be a link there that will give you a list of public instances to choose from.
20:56:38@darkmaurice:matrix.orgMaurice changed their display name from darkmaurice to Maurice.
21:32:52@claen:matrix.orgclaen interesting, thanks PrestonFT , tried a few but i dont get a feed at all with them

19:14:00@pikey:privacytools.iopikeyHi again. I have quite a few friends using Freetube now. Everyone loves it. I know the back button is something which is hoped for when the codebase is changed. but another one I would like to suggest is a setting/feature to block content from certain channels. So maybe next to the "Subscribe" button, a "Block" buttoin would be a real cool feature 🙂
19:31:38@prestonft:matrix.orgPrestonFT Hello! It's something that has actually been requested before so it's on my list of things to include. I don't know when it will be implemented but it is planned :)
