Latest release notes (September 27, 2022)

This is an iPhone-only update.

- Reverted the AirPlay-related changes in version 2.4.1.

- Added an option to turn on AirPlay compatibility mode in the settings. When AirPlay compatibility mode is turned on, the 1080p video becomes an AirPlay-able adaptive bitrate stream. The downside is the video quality will be lower initially and go back to 1080p eventually.

Vinegar is a Safari extension that replaces the YouTube player with a minimal HTML video tag.

It removes ads, restores picture-in-picture, and keeps videos playing in the background.

Note: The "can read and alter webpages" text in the permission section is just unfortunate wording. Vinegar needs access to the web page to find the YouTube player and replace it. It's not doing anything creepy!

(By the way, check out Vinegar's companion app, Baking Soda. It's basically a less powerful version of Vinegar, but it works on all websites other than YouTube.)
