    Is this something that usually comes out when something is hacked.

    Would love to have YouTube on my Switch. My old tablet is broken and my phone screen is quite small off videos.

    You can run Linux but there's no sound.

    Unless you dont want to use the built in web browser method of watching YouTube videos, you can always use Linux (albeit without any sound)

    Does that still work? All pages outside Facebook say that they're unreachable.

    Let me explain both concepts...

    The traditional method through the web browser still works (although you cannot use the YouTube website to access the videos). To watch YouTube videos you go to Facebook and search "SwitchBru". Tap on them and click on a link on the post that says something like "YouTube on the switch" and it should take you to a site which loads those videos (the site is a pain on the kneck since the switch doesn't display everything correctly but you can at least see the first 3 searches... Barley).

    The second method that uses Homebrew to access the site requires quite a bit of work. You require to catch streams from the YouTube site, scan the YouTube site for videos, need to have a decoder, and would need to have a video player on hand built-in. It gets very complex when you get into detail but here are the pros and cons:

    Pros:
    -Can support any video quality
    -Very unlikely that it wouldn't work on any switch version
    -Is a lot easier and faster to access

    Cons:
    -Very hard to make
    -May be a large filesize
    -Streams may be laggy if you use a 2.4Ghz internet connection (since the switch limits the connection heavily: About 2Mbps on any connection speed)

    Or you could just use a PC or phone/tablet/other game console to watch Youtube and wait for the release of it on switch.

    Is there any way to play MP4 videos at all yet? Movies in handheld and docked mode would be awesome.

    Well, I guess if the community wants it I guess why not make it. Would be a great time to learn how to use FFMPEG libraries.

    didn't older version of the switch browser lack the more extensive block on youtube videos seen in later versions? would it be possible to simply use layred fs to lift the block on various websites?
