Browser user agents for Youtube?


Youtube is telling me that my browser is not supported anymore. Which is poppycock of course.

I will not update my browser. I am very happy with it. Don't waste your spit on trying to convincing me to update. I will not.

Again: I will not update my browser.

Again, this time with uppercase, bold and underlined font: I will NOT update my browser.

I am sorry Linuxquestions does not support fonts with glitter.

If you're old enough to remember and understand FREEDOM and you're on my side, pray tell, what UA strings can I use to wave a Jedi gesture at Youtube so that it'll just shut up and leave me alone?

If you're the kind of Karen who tells people to "stay home," for the love of whatever you care about, just stay the heck away from my thread. I don't want to hear ANYTHING from sheeple like you.

Mozilla/5.0 works fine for youtube, that is what I use with dillo or w3m.
This one works fine too.
Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)
If you don't have scripts turned on with an agent like this, google will complain.
Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.1; Win64; x64; rv:74.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/74.0
I also never go to it's main page. I search like this.
Code:
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=car&search_sort=video_date_uploaded
