This patch adds minitube, an alternative way to browse Youtube.
I'm not really happy with this patch for three reasons:


3. Users need to obtain a Google API key before they can use the application.

Not necessarily. I ‘solved’ this in Nix[0] by creating my own key and sharing it with the world, of the opinion that these keys are in fact intended for distributors, not users or authors. Like pools. It's also trivial for a user to pass their own key if they so desire.

This is a rather involved process and requires a Google account.

I don't remember how involved it was, but I have long since lost the credentials to my account. Either the associated key is still valid after 3 years, or nobody uses Minitube from Nix. Both seem about equally likely. :-)

Just pointing out that it's possible. I don't believe this jives with Guix's stated goal of user empowerment. If they want to experience YouTube, don't let's sugar-coat the pill.
