Maaaan, the fact that YouTube revoked API keys for the Kodi plugin and youtube-viewer and expects me to make my own key is probably my last straw in using youtube.

@nitox Ehh it depends on the laws in your country and what you've agreed to. Otherwise we couldn't have projects like Wine and ReactOS or virus protection software.

@nitox It's up to the people making the claims to show proof. There's been no proof a backdoor, just paranoia.

As for verifying, it's firmware so if there's a backdoor I'm sure someone would have found it by now.

@nitox I wouldn't take much notice on libreboot or coreboot, they're paranoid. Going with nonfree firmware should be fine for most use cases.

@kazuma @rizzo sorry kazuma i think it's time to cancel you. get back in your horror hole

i really don't know how to feel about this. the packager is packaging the software, and the software is broken- but it's broken upstream at this version too? but because they're packaging an older version they're going to just let the out-of-the-box breakage stay
