How does everyone feel about the new invasion of privacy from google? I for one do not use it anymore thanks to this.

I listened to PM on BBC Radio 4 this lunchtime about this, they had someone from Google on talking about it. He said that if you remain signed out of your Google account then it shouldn't be a problem.

Block cookies from google and youtube by default. Also block javascript on google, and add google analytics to your adblock filters.

Create a separate google account purely for use with youtube. Don't enable google cookies until you actually sign in. When you sign out again, block google cookies again and delete the ones it set. Don't google anything while signed in to youtube.

Set this as a custom user .css for google:

Code:
.vshid {
    display: inline !important;
    margin-left: 10px;
}
.vshid a {
    color: #1122cc !important;
}


...That will put the "Cached" links back on the search results page, even with javascript disabled.

When you find a youtube video that's hidden behind that infuriating "confirm you're over 18" rubbish (What is the point of that? Anyone who isn't over 18 can just lie...) - Don't sign in to watch it. Instead, google the video ID (the string of characters after "v=" in the video URL) on its own. This will find the video via google, and if you watch it via the "Cached" link it bypasses the age screen (at least it did the last time I tried it).

When I first heard this a month or so back I signed out of youtube and left it that way. Doesnt make much difference for me as I'm not on there 24/7 like some people. Ive only been hit by the "over 18" block once since than.

That trick you mentioned above didnt work Pigeon, googling the letters/#'s after the v= to bring up a cached copy. But this could be related to the fact I empty my cache/delete history compulsively every 15 minutes.

Oh bum, it did the last time I tried it...

<investigates by googling random videos>

Seems they've been awkward swines twice over, by removing all the cached results for youtube video pages. Mad It's not you...

However cached copies of some videos do still show up using that method - if, for example, they were embedded on another page - so while it's not as reliable as it was, it's still worth trying.

Next time you get hit with that age thing, post the link here and I'll see if I can wangle another way around it Smile (Or if I get hit by it first I'll post myself Smile)

Yea I searched it again through google and I found a blog that had the embedded version which played it with no problems Thumb Up!
This is the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1Bsee_sx4A. No need for a work around anymore but if you find yourself with some spare time one day Hehe ... How is it every thread seems to involve more work for you?Big Laugh
