Max Igan followers are now praising https://www.joshwhotv.com/.

Let’s take a look at the technical part:

Registrar is Goolag, and the site is CuckFlared, already 2 red flags.

Also, looking at the requests it’s making is rather creepy.

And visiting the website for the 2nd time gives me an “Idiot Banned” page featuring just a white page with an unplayable video (request seems to point to https://static.buddylist.co/x/YourNeverGonnaHackMe.mp4 ).
Literally all I did before getting this page was looking at the top page (and the blurred thumbnails).

So I consider it a failure right from the start.

Some additional comments by BananaMulcher

Pushing it through an archiver hangs for a long time at

www.joshwhotv.com/plugin/Live/stats.json.php?Menu

But eventually produces a capture.

The web archive bot gets fed with captchas and other issues. Although there are a few good captures.

This is behavior typical of sites which heavily profile connections. Probably just inherited from using cloudflare, so even if the people behind joshwho are well intentioned, they have built a visitor profiling honeypot.

I am already critical of Bitchute because of their cloudflare wall. mpv can be used to at least avoid their web player. Let’s see if the same is true for joshwhotv:

[ffmpeg] https: header='X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff'
[ffmpeg] https: header='Report-To: {"endpoints":[{"url":"https:\/\/a.nel.cloudflare.com\/report\/v3?s=redacted"}],"group":"cf-nel","max_age":604800}'
[ffmpeg] https: header='NEL: {"success_fraction":0,"report_to":"cf-nel","max_age":604800}'
[ffmpeg] https: header='Server: cloudflare'
[ffmpeg] https: header=''

It works but still makes connections to cloudflare :mad:, the same problem Bitchute suffers from. I suppose one could put mpv over a proxy but that’s a lot of hoops to jump through when a video uploader could have just used a better host to begin with.
