Said about Piped as an alternative
A great alternative to invidious, since invidious was discontinued it is very buggy and crashes a lot, I often have to switch instances. Although Piped a missing a few features, it works and is stable.
It's much nicer than Invidious. Piped is not a full YouTube alternative like LBRY, but rather a frontend that allows you to watch YouTube and only connecting to googleapis.com (not googlevideo.com like Invidious). It also has the craziest ad blocker ever. When you watch a video and they say, now it's time for a word from our sponsor or something like that, it fast forwards to the end of that part. It's insane, I have no idea how they pull that off!
If you want to watch YouTube content but don't like ads and Google's invasive data collection, you should definitely try Piped. It's super fast (faster than Invidious in my experience) and the Preferences allow users to enable SponsorBlock, an open-source crowdsourced platform that skips sponsored segments automatically, so that you never have to hear "this video is sponsored by RandomVPN" ever again. It's highly customizable, very similar to NewPipe.
