What does this script do?

For a little more privacy: rewrite YouTube links to point to your favorite Invidious instance. Details on the „why" can be found here.

If you are using the Mouseover Popup Image Viewer (MPIV), here's the rule for the preview image:

{"r":"(invidio\\.us/watch.+?v=|v/)([a-z0-9_-]+)", "s":"$2/mqdefault.jpg"}

Additionally, since version 1.1.0 (2019-09-05) also rewrites Twitter links to Nitter.Net. Reasoning is the same – and Nitter is to Twitter what is to YouTube.

How to select your preferred instance?

If you don't like the pre-configured one, you can simply change the videohost variable at the top of the script. Note that by editing the script inside Greasemonkey, the monkey will stop updating to preserve your changes – so you will then need to update the script manually.

Script history:

  • v1.1.2 (2019-10-07): make it easier to switch to your favorite Invidious instance (just change a single variable); make the default
  • v1.1.1 (2019-09-06): do not exclude but just ignore YT links there instead
  • v1.1.0 (2019-09-05): add Twitter2Nitter
  • v1.0.4 (2019-07-27): add update URL
  • v1.0.3 (26.07.2019): also deal with YT channels
  • v1.0.2 (20.03.2019): excluding Invidious itself from link rewriting so one can follow their YT links if needed
  • v1.0.1 (30.11.2018): also cover
  • v1.0.0 (26.11.2018): initial version
