Finally I can watch YouTube on my first smart phone with touch display that is about 13 years old where it is no longer supported since 2020, plus no ads. YouTube can’t beat that :exploding_head:


I glad that works well for your old device :slight_smile:

pov: you have an amazon echo show which has browser but normal youtube uses up too much precious resources
like the difference is very noticable between a lightweight bloat free frontend, and the mobile web ui which for some reason interferes with the core functionality which is playing a video by lagging

wow, what was the leak?

The leak was this:

app.get("/s/:id", (req, res) => {
  // The following function created everytime expressjs handle this
  // And then the function being put into memory

  function getChunk() {
    // A long code here

ah yeah, closures always end up being tricky for memory management! nice find
