How to avoid the YouTube algorithm

I’ve gotten to the point where I can no longer watch YouTube via the app or on a large screen. I’m so disappointed at the way the algorithm favours showing you the extreme end of your interests or something completely against what you believe in (I’m getting bitcoin bros now in my feed). It’s more toxic than Twitter for me these days.

I’ve found a way to still watch my favourite channels by going to their main channel and simply bookmarking the latest videos page. I have a playlist for each of my favourite creators. When I want to spend 10 mins watching then I’ll just go to these bookmarks.

I also only watch on mobile, that way I see less recommendations and stick to my feed.
