There is a new application available for Sparkers: FreeTube

What is FreeTube?

FreeTube is a YouTube client for Windows, Mac, and Linux built around using YouTube more privately. You can enjoy your favorite content and creators without your habits being tracked. All of your user data is stored locally and never sent or published to the internet. FreeTube grabs data by scraping the information it needs (with either local methods or by optionally utilizing the Invidious API). With many features similar to YouTube, FreeTube has become one of the best methods to watch YouTube privately on desktop.

– Watch videos without ads
– Use YouTube without Google tracking you using cookies and JavaScript
– Two extractor APIs to choose from (Built in or Invidious)
– Subscribe to channels without an account
– Local subscriptions, history, and saved videos
– Organize your subscriptions into “Profiles” to create a more focused feed
– Export & import subscriptions
– Open videos from your browser directly into FreeTube (with extension)
– Mini Player
– Full Theme support

Installation (Sparky 6 amd64 only):
(The application is still in beta phase so installation on Sparky testing only)
sudo apt update
sudo apt install freetube
