Preston edited this page Jun 8, 2018 · 2 revisions

An optional browser extension can be installed for Chrome or Firefox to enhance the experience of FreeTube. FreeTube-Redirect allows you to click on a YouTube link in your browser and have the video open up on FreeTube. FreeTube must be installed to your machine (By using the .deb or .exe for example) in order for the extension can work so that your system can interpret the freetube:// protocol.

Download for Firefox

Instructions for Google Chrome
