Please note that FreeTube is currently in Beta. While it should work well for most users, there are still bugs and missing features that need to be addressed.
FreeTube is supported by the Privacy Redirect and LibRedirect extension, which will allow you to open YouTube links into FreeTube. You must enable the option within the advanced settings for it to work.
Disclaimer: Learn more about why a browser extension is bad for your privacy.
If you have issues with the extension working with FreeTube, please create an issue in this repository instead of the extension repository.
