Documentation

The full documentation can be accessed online at https://docs.invidious.io/

Extensions

We highly recommend the use of Privacy Redirect, a browser extension that automatically redirects Youtube URLs to any Invidious instance and replaces embedded youtube videos on other websites with invidious.

The documentation contains a list of browser extensions that we recommended to use along with Invidious.

You can read more here: https://docs.invidious.io/Extensions.md
