  1. This is outdated youtube just blocked watching nsfw videos on other sites, the only method that probably still works is downloading the video with a downloading software

  2. It is 2021 and only the video download method works. I use y2mate dot com.

    Youtube has gone full retard and put age verification even on videos without sexual content.

  3. So, Youtube went full retard with age restriction, up to the point where you need to register a state ID or credit card to watch videos that you were really fine watching even without an account a few months back…downloading it is then.

  4. Bro i just want to watch a reaction video and its age restricted? I need an ID or credit card to verify?? seriously youtube?

  5. YouTube is getting worse by the day. There is no way I am ever giving my CC information or other personal documents to Google.
    Hopefully, a new platform will rise but that will be a hard thing to do since YouTube was pretty much first in line and now known by all around the world.

  6. As I get this age verification baloney all the time while I’m already logged in, it sure looks like a scam to get their hands on my personal documents, which they will then obviously sell on.
