Download youtube videos proxyfied through invidious

Hello. I'm a newbie when it comes to programming stuff. It is possible to download youtube videos proxyfied through invidious with newleaf? I tried everything: freetube, alttube, youtube-dl gui and cli but nothing. It always refuses to connect unless I enable to connect on Google's servers.

If so, how one would do that?

Thanks.

NewLeaf has no video proxying functionality right now. It would be good to add that functionality! Lomanic and I have hit some barriers while trying to work on it, though.

May I suggest downloading from the google servers?

On the Invidious web interface, you can use the download menu in the bottom left to download without connecting to google servers, which might be good enough for you.

NewLeaf is a replacement for Invidious. NewLeaf and Invidious do not communicate with each other. You might be confused in the wording of your question.

Thanks for taking the time.

Unfortunately, using this feature also download connecting to Google's servers unless you have a invidious account or a selected few instances.

It's not ideal since it put strains on the few that care about that.

Sorry I meant downloading through a proxy without connecting to Google's.

It's all good. I'll hope one day you guys can do it!
