I made my own YouTube Unblocker with ytdl-core and some express. It actually works quite well, and download times are super fast!
I made this because some videos (using my school wifi) were restricted. This allows you to also download videos, so even if you don't require it to unblock videos, you can also use it to download videos and watch videos without advertisements
There really aren't any limits as far as I can see, but try not to download 10-hour long videos, repls don't have that much storage space :(((
Step 1. Find the video link that is blocked
Step 2. Copy the URL
Step 3. Click that big red button
Step 4. Watch it, ig
DISCLAIMER: It takes a few minutes to fully download some videos (even longer if you are impatient, or the video is long). Be patient, it should take no longer than 10 minutes for even 30 minute videos
You sometimes get rick-rolled.
Some thumbnails don't work, and that's mainly because the video hasn't been cached yet.
I hope you enjoyed my unblocker! Please comment with suggestions on what I should add to the unblocker.
Oh and also try out Cycle Bot! There's many more updates now!
Dammit I got rick-rolled! lmao
there are many bugs, at least once a day, there will be a session where it can't load, and also there is a session in which any vids that do load are corrupted, and then, a new thing came up, there is a session with no audio(even on my backups)
you can also use it to download videos and watch videos without advertisements
congrats, you just made youtube pointless for people who make a living off of monetization on their videos
@code913 You realize they won't get the money anyway if the school blocks the videos. This increases total happiness. Think about it like this-
Option 1-You don't get to watch the video. The person who made it doesn't get money.
Option 2-You get to watch the video. The person who made it doesn't get money.
Thus, either way, they don't get money. But, this increases total happiness.
