There are a few different ways you could configure Pluckeye to allow you to watch YouTube videos under certain conditions.
One option is allow only specific videos. This has the downside of copy-pasting urls, but the upside of not getting distracted by videos that you haven’t decided in advance to allow.
It is possible to add many videos from a specific YouTube channel using Link Grabber, which can help you copy all the urls that are linked from the current webpage. You’d probably want to:
Another extension that could work is Linkclump . It requires some configuration to copy the urls intstead of opening them each in a new tab, but it allows you to select a rectangle in a web page from which to allow urls.
Another option is to allow YouTube Kids, which only gives access to videos considered appropriate for kids:
pluck + allow youtubekids.com
Another option is to use a Chromium-based browser and enforce “moderate mode” (the safesearch feature):
pluck + safesearch
or “restricted mode” (the safesearchstrict feature):
pluck + safesearchstrict
Possibly with the nofirefox feature:
pluck + nofirefox
Some prefer to block the main youtube site while still being able to watch embedded youtube videos on other sites. This can be accomplished with the following command.
pluck + block youtube.com text/html
Another option is to schedule access to YouTube using a when rule. E.g., to only allow media from YouTube on Mondays 10am - 12pm:
pluck + when M10-12 allow youtube.com
Some prefer youtube without any images. This removes images of video previews, even on allowed pages, but some prefer this anyway.
pluck + block i.ytimg.com
