Piped is a privacy-respecting open-source alternative frontend to YouTube.

I'm open-source; check me out at GitHub.

I have never seen that! I wish I could upvote you twice, you wonderful person.

It really isn't, because this is what I see:

If you use Jerboa, don't be fooled, the image I uploaded isn't actually broken. This is just what broken images look like.
