In user settings, ideally let us pick which invidious instance

While we are it, why not build a new web browser from scratch just to implement that. That would be great!

Kidding aside there is LibRedirect

@sexy_peach@feddit.de is right, there are quite a lot of browser addons that do this for the viewer.

Personally, what I’d like to see is if the link points to youtube, the little “archive” buttons that pop up below the link form switch to being “invidious” buttons. That way users can encourage not sending people to google if they care about that sort of thing.

There’s an app for android that does a similar thing called “UntrackMe”

It seems unrealistic for the site to maintain lists of working instances. I’ve been using https://github.com/libredirect/libredirect, it supports a ton of services and instances and is actively maintained

That seems like a good idea but maybe make it opt-in to avoid having to choose a default one and be forced to monitor its availability, or at least let the instance admin choose the defaults if they want to do so.
