    This needs to be in AUR

    Hey there! I am the developer of FreeTube. Thank you for the article 🙂

    Would you be able to update the article? I’ve released version 0.1.3 and 0.1.2 will not work anymore. It’d be a shame to direct users to a broken version.

    Also, along with the update, I do not depend on HookTube’s API anymore. I now use a spun up version of the youtube-dl server to grab the videos. This is part of the reason as to why 0.1.2 doesn’t work anymore.

    Regardless, nice article, and thank you very much for writing about FreeTube! 🙂

    This is absolutely fantastic!!!
    Thank you so much, both the developer and OStechnix!!
    Using Arch Linux and yes, this indeed should be included in AUR.
    Cheers friends!

    OK, I’m trying 0.1.3, and I would have said it doesn’t work either, but maybe I just don’t know how to use it.

    Can it be used without subscriptions? If so it’s a puzzle…. nothing I try does anything. searching for things I know are there gets no results. clicking on Most Popular gets no results.

    what am I doing wrong?
