Which also begs the question "How do those glasses stay there?".

u/blackie-arts Virgin 4 lyfe Dec 08 '21

He has headphones, that's how, but without headphones, that's a mystery

u/Startup8888 Dec 08 '21

I agree, his headphones and ears have nothing to do with each other I think his ears are fake!

5

u/Tuggem Dec 08 '21

He do got fake them fake ears

u/kolos566 Dec 09 '21

So he's a furry?

it slowly tightens until it just sticks at the end

u/extralyfe Dec 08 '21

did you miss the episode where he has magnets surgically implanted on the side of his head to help hold all his bizarrely human-shaped accessories?

u/FineOrganization5168 Dec 08 '21

seriously, who misses an arthur episode

u/QuinSanguine Dec 08 '21

Same way raccoons keep that mask on. Magic.

Every hear of bone conduction headphones? This rat is clearly an early adopter and doesn't deserve your scorn.

u/Chrismont Dec 08 '21

Oh shit a rat? Throw some respect on my man Arthur the Aardvark's name.

17

u/RoutineFeature9 Dec 08 '21

Haha! he's supposed to be an aardvark but he looks about a million times more like a rat. always has, always will! Google aardvark and see what those freaky bastards look like.

u/Jusnoor Dec 08 '21

Wow. Assuming someone's race based on their looks? Shame.

Uh where is this character from?

1

u/RoutineFeature9 Dec 08 '21

TV show called Arthur

1

u/CampCounselorBatman Dec 09 '21

Though the TV show is based on a book series.

u/beluuuuuuga RageFace Against the Machine Dec 08 '21

He is listening to vibrations through his bones like a bee because he is animal.

14

u/blackie-arts Virgin 4 lyfe Dec 08 '21

He probably doesn't understand that vibrations, because they still didn't add dislikes count back

31

u/KVenom777 Dec 08 '21

They already have compettitors. Odysee, Dailymotion, Pornhub.

8

u/isitbrokenorsomethin Dec 08 '21

I use vimeo and daily as much as I can

2

u/KVenom777 Dec 08 '21

Yes, Vimeo too!

3

u/oppairate Dec 08 '21

this is the right sentiment, even though pornhub is clearly not (do wish they’d spin one up though - they certainly know how to handle load - also, why’d they skip 2020?). it’s just how do you get traction without being niche (the only reason twitch made it)?

19

u/AnonimowySzaleniec47 Dec 08 '21

Odysee that's a good start for new creators

1

u/YoDevidedByZero Dec 11 '21

Odysee is not bad, too many damn anti-vaxxer though.

18

u/Garbage-Powerful Dec 08 '21

They are just trying to distract us from the fact that 15 second un skippable adds are back

7

u/blackie-arts Virgin 4 lyfe Dec 08 '21

Big brain move

u/meesam4687 Dec 08 '21

Lets just flock to https://odysee.com/

u/Sinsina Dec 08 '21

I love the fact it shares over p2p! This is a brilliant idea for a decentralised protocol for video sharing, and a great way to bootstrap a video site into existing.

That said, this uses proof of work mining which harms the environment, so it wouldn’t scale very well; proof-of-stake would be a lot… nicer. IMO, the best solution to this problem (the listing of videos and metadata) would be something that works more like Mastodon’s instances, because then you could actually have small local community moderation.

2

u/VentralRaptor24 Dec 08 '21

its an outright crypto supporter, too, not just using the tech for other functions. Thats an automatic dealbreaker for me.

3

u/Defecticon9000 Dec 08 '21

Lmao clicked on the link and first thing I read was "welcome to odysee, we have dislikes"

2

u/blackie-arts Virgin 4 lyfe Dec 08 '21

Is there Odysee app for android?

2

u/icallpeoplejohn Dec 08 '21

As the LBRY app.

7

u/tamilvanan31 Dec 08 '21

this will suddenly boost videos like, how to unlock iphone without knowing passcode, cause we know those're fake by seeing number of dislikes

2

u/NotClever Dec 08 '21

Didn't dislikes boost videos in the algorithm just like likes? I always heard that either way it was "interaction" and the algorithm boosts it.

u/billpecota Dec 08 '21

Everyone let's pack up and blow up Vimeo

u/BokirBokcu Dec 08 '21

They shouldve removed user feedback instead

How to listen to mumble rap

3

u/dtmfdoom Dec 08 '21

Pretty much any company that size. Games and media from companies using nft won't care about user feedback, either. They think the internet is theirs, why should they?

3

u/RealLuckyDiamond Dec 08 '21

The 'Use me as a dislike button' became common

3

u/DamascusWolf82 Professional Dumbass Dec 08 '21

Gentlemen, I have figured out the real reason they removed it. They are going to bring back rewind…

Odysee Newtube Rumble. There are other options.

u/Beat-Saber_Addict Dec 08 '21

What do they care? They got 10 billion dollars and google

2

u/RedditUser-19 Dec 09 '21

They can't ignore 22,000 people review bombing them on app stores

2

u/Reindeer-Vast Dec 09 '21

fun fact: there is a dislike extention on google so you can still see the dislikes

1

u/YoDevidedByZero Dec 11 '21

It will go away soon.

2

u/made-yu-look Dec 09 '21

Too many dislikes in the Whitehouse videos and covind propaganda videos. They're removing the dislike for your own good...

3

u/Eric_Camden Dec 08 '21

I guess tiktok is their competitor

4

u/BrazenHermit Dec 08 '21

Who the fuck cares....remove the fucking ads

1

u/YoDevidedByZero Dec 11 '21

Remove the likes too then.

2

u/NoGardE Dec 08 '21

Odysee has a dislike button.

u/Paulerix Dec 08 '21

heeees soooooo hot

u/kingoftalent Dec 08 '21

this is a mixed feeling but tik tok is now a big competitor rn

0

u/milkersnjugs Dec 08 '21

Question: Why does the 'dislike' button matter so much? I'm genuinely confused why it's important all of the sudden.

7

u/nons999 Dec 08 '21

It's essentially censorship- the number of likes says nothing about the quality of a video unless it's in proportion with the dislikes

7

u/knuggles_da_empanada Dec 08 '21

From a practical standpoint, when I look for tutorials, I want to know which ones work.

2

u/Psychological-Leg84 Dec 08 '21

Seeing only how many likes something has does not accurately tell me if the video is quality/has good content. It’s censorship
