Hooktube still works OK.
No, it's not what it was - which IIRC was a genuine yt backdoor - but as an alternative to the yt site, it's just fine.

Although not Youtube I did run across the same thing the OP posted about just today (hr. ago) here: https://mt-public.mycomplia.com/#!/signin edit: Oops forgot, this is a state of montana login for MedMJ patients only.

I just allowed the site in eMatrix for the captcha and it worked fine, it still gave the warning but it worked so I just ignored it but then I saw a Dismiss button for the warning...no more warning :)

Since this thread has so many YT alt's listed already I thought I would add one more to the list that I came across while cruising the webs;
https://lbry.tv/

I had heard of this before but never checked it out, quite a lot of content and it works fine in both Pale Moon and Basalisk.
Very basic plain jane UI/controlls. Scrolling down the pages can be a tad laggy loading the next, be patient.

Youtube, AFAIK, has never provided support for Palemoon.

I get this warning too on Linux and I'm inclined to ignore it.

I've received this message on Solaris 9 for like 7 years. Bahhh....

This is a fantastic point. Google has to my knowledge NEVER made any effort specifically for us. They barely do it for their Controlled Opposition so this is not a big surprise.

Also, Pale Moon is TWO words.

Perhaps Axatax meant to refer to Pa Lemon, a failed effort to make money off of the "irritable anthropomorphic fruit or vegetable" phase of 'humour' that some childish YouTubers spawned years back.
