Excellent
Just what I wanted
To not know what videos I have and haven't seen from a glance
Something goes here sometime.
Oh yeah, I have a Youtube channel

So I posted this in the discord, and it was recommended to me to put this in a spot people on talkhaus would be able to more easily find it, y'know, not everyone on talkhaus is on discordhaus. Therefore, more people are more likely benefit from it if I drop this here.

Today when I opened a video, I noticed that the thumbnails are now 1/3rd of my screen height. Youtube's been doing stuff like this increasingly where they're pushing the thumbnail as the most important and representative bit of a video link, animating them and such, but in more insidious ways like trying to kill the tags by literally saying they don't mean anything when you try to post a video. However, I personally am not ok with them shoving thumbnails in my face constantly, for various reasons, and now it's become a rather Large issue - Pardon the half-baked pun there - because now I can see a grand total of 3 sidebar videos at once whereas I used to be able to see maybe 9 or 10.

Well today, I decided to fix that. So I told uBlock Origin to nuke thumbnails. And now I bring it to you too since it may be of use to people who are sick of spoilers in their youtube feeds and such. No more "all bosses" video thumbnails for games released yesterday and such.

Code: Select all

!This will remove thumbnails from the front page, search list and sidebar.
www.youtube.com###thumbnail

!This will remove only the sidebar thumbnails
www.youtube.com###dismissable > ytd-thumbnail.ytd-compact-video-renderer.style-scope

!This will remove end of video thumbnails within the player
www.youtube.com##a.ytp-suggestion-set.ytp-videowall-still

!This will remove the end of video autoplay thumbnail within the player
www.youtube.com##div.ytp-cued-thumbnail-overlay-image
Just chuck all the ones you want to remove into your My Filters list in the uBlock dashboard, and you're good to go, no more unwanted thumbnails.

Have a good day everyone.

EDIT: Ok, so apparently it's not a universal constant. I assume Youtube is doing its general "we're testing, so it's being tested on random people first" thing. That being said, if anyone's wondering what this nonsense looks like, here you go.

I don't think you understand. The old studio interface was over TWO YEARS OLD and the frontend team just doesn't want to deal with legacy code like that. The web dev zeitgeist has gone through 87 new frontend framework standards in that time, it's just impossible to even tell what was going on in the old way of doing things and the guy who originally wrote all that stuff has been reacquired 7 times by various startups since then. So it's for the best, now they can implement all of the great new things users have been wanting like AI blockchain machine learning.

the follow-up got age restricted, because YouTube is incredibly dense and cannot distinguish weeds from "weed"

Well then it sounds like you work at a company that didn't adopt the strategy popularized by Google where everyone is incentivized to reinvent things that already exist and were working fine

oh yeah it's definitely preferable to .js library hell every six months (ever hear about left-pad?) but there's gotta be a sane point somewhere in the middle between "haven't updated the DB spec since 2003" and "MOAR FRAMEWORKS"

google is cutting the feature that allows the community to submit captions for a video, because google is actively malicious and a blight on humanity, in case anyone needed even more convincing, somehow
Well it is a decent hack but sometime its just too repetitif there no level that actually pop in your face and your like oh yeah that level they all ressemble themselves and just monster along the way.

It doesn't benefit Jimmy Kimmel or James Corden so of course they won't keep it around

i think it's negligent enough to be actively racist. i mostly see community captions being used by fans to translate videos into lots of languages for them, something that would generally be completely impossible for the creator to do themself, and would be hilariously costly for the creator to pay someone else to do (prolly something like $10 per minute of video per video per language).

speaking of that "hilariously costy", turns out their plan is related to that - as a YT creator you can get 6 free months of a subscription to a third party caption provider, after which you will have to pay them to caption your video. hahahahahaha!

Why does Youtube beg me to sign in?

I can't get through like five videos without a screen prompting me to log in and won't load the video until I refresh or click something else (sometimes a few times).

They should keep the rating system as is imo but get rid of the fucking carcinogenic biohazard known as the YT comments section. Nothing good or productive has ever come from it :ehh:
