Watch any video here, cookie free!
I created this because the experience of watching video on YouTube got worse. They show pop-ups, they track you and they tempt you to bindge-watch by suggesting lots of videos on the side. Here’s the full story behind this page.
This page solves most of these problems. It lets you embed any YouTube video easily and watch it without being tracked, with full screen and picture-in-picture support on iPads.
Option 1. Just paste a YouTube URL link
Option 2. Get a Siri Shortcut for iOS
I created a handy Siri Shortcut which you can use to “share” any YouTube link to this page.
Option 3. Just add a URL to this page as a parameter
This page has a special
yt parameter, so add the YouTube link at the end of it or the 11-character YouTube video ID:
Option 4. Change the short YOUTU.BE url to XOUTU.BE url
That’s right. I bought a domain
xoutu.be which redirects to here. So if you’ve got a short video URL, you can just switch
x and you’re done!
I hope Google will not sue me for ordering a similar domain. It’s for a good cause!
Now you can watch videos on an iPad, iPhone or any other device without being tracked by Google/YouTube. When embedding the video it uses the “nocookie” option, which limits the tracking and it supports full screen and picture-in-picture on the iPadOS and iOS for most clips.
