Here's how I upload videos: Get youtube url and put it in the link field. Change the url from this:

https://youtu.be/zbJXzwURlRw to https://tube.poal.co/zbJXzwURlRw for example.

Then when you press submit the video is switched into the poaltube format.

Tube.poal.co is a YouTube front end that lets you watch YT videos without being tracked. I know @Pmyb2 has plans for it but I don't know about them.
