Why? ffs I just wanted to watch a yt video, why does Youtube/Google want to know so much for just an age restricted video.

Could it get even worse than this or is this the limit?

Is this what was happening with that big crash last night?


youtube-dl + mpv


This. youtube-dl lets you watch streams from a shitload of other websites too.

Otherwise, try the freetube desktop app or newpipe app for android.


thx for the reccs but newpipe doesn't load age restricted videos btw. It just pops up a message saying "Content Unavailable".


Use invidious and its many, many instances.
The main ones are invidious.snopyta.org and yetu.be

>The body of a man found shot inside a burned out vehicle in Canada three years ago has been identified as that of Davis Wolfgang Hawke, a prolific spammer and neo-Nazi who led a failed anti-government march on Washington, D.C. in 1999, according to news reports.


Interesting, but he died 3 years ago, it seems.

https everywhere


Also Firefox 76 onwards has an option to replace this. Set dom.security.https_only_mode to true.

Are there any projects for freeing e-readers and removing all/most/some proprietary stuff?
Or is my only option just turning airplane mode on and hoping for the best?

What techniques of fingerprinting are used on the ebooks from typical DRMed sources?

Some use noticeable watermarks, but it isn't improbable that there is steganography also used, so if one were to "extract" ebooks to "lend" to more than a few others, what information should be scrubbed to prevent trace back to the lender?


I dont get it. Just get a tablet or use yoir phone and dl books from lib gen. As for pdf readers i use read era, although maybe there is better, it works for me. I have no clue what drm uou are talking about.


>Just get a tablet or use yoir phone
t. glowie


I use a paperwhite and keep it on airplane mode 95% of the time.


- Battery lasts weeks or even months
- Can read it even when outside
- Can't do much else on it (this is a plus for ADHD zoomers like yours truly)
- Doesn't track you when airplane mode is on (BIG MAYBE)

It seems like the open-source/Linux community is made up of a bunch of Libertarian-types. Are there any good socialist open-source projects I can follow, or important socialist computer science figures I should know about?

it's not consumerism you pompous idiot. what about something as simple as functional TANS software that is documented and accessible to any country? libertarians have their bitcoin meme that they can use to cry about central banks, while we literally don't have shit to offer in terms of actual economic alternatives that exists as a real program.


There's tons of free software for linear programming.


>it's not consumerism you pompous idiot.
You missed the point badly.

>tfw those faggy french social theorists were right all along


They always were.


Daniel Micay is legit, but he's very upfront about what he's building: ultimately he is concerned with security and system integrity over privacy.


Yeah exactly, it's a shame I'd rather have privacy over security since I hardly ever use my phone anyway.

now that we know how to extract AES key that encrypts the audio stream, we are one python script away from spotify-dling all those musics


comrades get in here!


Hooks.cpp relies on hardcoded addresses for the hooked functions. Still very cool.


Interesting I guess but there's nothing worth stealing on sporify that you couldn't get from somewhere else easier


>// key is encoded with some sort of algorithm; decode it here
Here's what happens. A 64-bit key is present as two u32 values: key0 -> keyPtr and key1 -> uVar3. This encodes the real key which has four u32 values. For decoding the current position starts at 3 and cycles to 0 four times, this is keyDecoded[index & 3]. The value to the left of the current position with wrapping is uVar1. At each step a delta is computed from the left value, the step/index and the two key values, and this delta is used to update the current value:

current = current + delta

The delta in Hooks.cpp is:

(((((uVar1 + index + keyPtr & uVar1 * 16 + uVar3) * 2 + uVar1 * -17) - index) - uVar3) - keyPtr)

which can be reorganized as:

(((left + index + key0) & ((left &lt&lt 4) + key1)) &lt&lt 1) - (left + index + key0 + (left &lt&lt 4) + key1)

Pic related has become normalized over the last four years. Big Tech has far too much meddling power in politics and as long as its for bad orange man no one bats an eye. If the Biden-Harris administration is smart they will immediately seek to break up Google and Twitter as their power increasingly threatens the federal government. I really hope the 20s see a return to the decentralized web instead of almost all internet traffic being owned by 3 companies.
The FSFs fight against DRM in web content is essentially the same fight.


I remember some retard on the main board (lots of retards there now that I think about it) larping and applying the logic of owning the means of production to Big Tech. Like, literally taking over their platforms somehow as a response to others talking about decentralized non-botnet alternatives to mainstream social media platforms. Fucking lol.

Anyway, yeah, social media has always been cancer but holy fuck is it getting bad these days. Have you noticed they've also started adding warnings to accounts on twitter/youtube that belong or are associated with Russia/China at all?


LOL can you post a screen or link?


nevermind, i think ive seen it already on youtube, they use warnings under all kinds of conspiracy shit like the illuminati or flat earth lmao

i hate this timeline


section 230


I thought this was fake.


fucking hell now all the internet understanders from the nytimes and wapo will be paid with state salaries to call for the banning of anything on the internet outside of the neoliberal mainstream. and who knows, they may come across this albanian rakia lovers forum


Biden will accomplish even less than Obama because, straight out of the gate, Republicans have a majority in the Senate and have increased control in the House. This is, of course, assuming that Trump will be unsuccessful in his bid to overturn the election via legal maneuvering.

CAD thread, preferably using free/libre open source tools. FreeCAD, LibreCAD, SolveSpace etc. Where are my CAD anons at?

Pics related are a mostly wooden wind turbine design I came up with yesterday. 45x145 and 45x95 mm lumber. Around 1500 W. Drawn in SolveSpace. Critique welcome!
