I used a public instance of Piped for a while and thought about selfhosting it, but the installation process was incredibly hard, to the point of being obnoxious, and in the end, it didn’t even work. I liked the features I saw on the public instances and would like to revisit it some time. Until there I’m using Viewtube. Installation was a breeze and it looks pretty nice.

Do you have some other YT frontend that we could try, post it here and tell us how easy/difficult it is to run and your opinion about it.
