I don't intend it to come across in an aggressive / hostile type of way. I see it as an issue that needs improvement. I appreciate what the developers do. And sometimes the best efforts fail, but if they are not aware of the issue, they can't fix it.
Maybe I need an adjustment, but I see it as software which takes input. The input should not crash the software, hang the software, nor otherwise cause the software to be unusable. It could give an error message, time out, or reject the input. One could view google with evil intent intending to crash other browsers, but how is this different than having a database where evil people are continually attempting to inject bad input?

... I have found that old TV programs which work fine with YouTube will not load on yewtu.be. Adventure game walkthroughs are fine, however.
I just tried https://yewtu.be/watch?v=6G3nuGSr4Bs , which is an eight-year-old upload of the ancient tv show "The Honeymooners". It worked fine.

Your mileage may vary.
That one did work. Dr. G and Life After People did not work, however.

I saw a new update, 29.4.0.2, release notes don't indicate any major changes, upgraded, and youtube started playing an ad, but then hung the whole browser as previously. After 5-10 minutes, I terminated it. On Invidious, I was able to play an episode of Dr. G and Life After People. Life after People, took a while to start, but it played, I was able to pause, rewind, go forward.

I tried 29.4.1, and nothing seems different in regard to the issue. Youtube starts playing, but has slow to no response as far as pause or forward, and then after about a minute it stops playing, the browser is non-responsive, and must be terminated. I also find a few other websites, such as homedepot.com will also hang the browser and with low CPU usage. Homedepot works until you scroll to the bottom sometimes, then hangs the browser. I've gone off for hours and it was still hung when I got back.

What's your point?
Of course, all these failures mount up and could easily end up costing more collectively than paying a proper rage would.

User input is causing software to fail.
Are you saying this is a, "won't fix"?

Well, I'm only asking if this is something being worked on, if it might be worked on, or if I should just deal with it.
