Piped is back up! πŸ₯³

This post is my explanation of the Piped instance’s 1 week downtime;

YouTube recently introduced a new block that requires login to watch videos
I tried a lot of things, like rebooting, reinstalling and rotating IP’s
But they had blacklisted my entire IPv6 /64
Due to exams I didn’t have time to really go into depth to fix it.

Today I finally found a little bit of time to deploy a new VPS in New York πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ (because I had some free credit there) and I migrated Piped to there.
Unfortunately there is some latency, but at least it works now. I have also created a Mastodan account where I post these kind of short status updates

I apologize for the downtime

Edit: As of June 16th 2024 the Piped instance has been fixed and is working fine
