please note that questions and issues may take a while to respond to, there's only one person managing everything.
some non-backtraceable data does get temporarily stored when requested download requires live render. it's necessary for that feature to function.
in that case, salted sha256 hash of your ip address and information about requested stream are temporarily stored in server's RAM for 2 minutes. after 2 minutes all previously stored information is permanently removed. hash of your ip address is used for limiting stream access only to you. no one (even me) has access to this data, because official cobalt codebase doesn't provide a way to read it outside of processing functions in the first place.
you can check cobalt's github repo for yourself and see that indeed nothing is stored permanently.
current version & commit
4.8: prettier than ever
this version brings many visual improvements and a completely revamped "about" tab.
this tab is not yet finalized and i will post a poll with possible future additions on twitter and mastodon. make sure to vote and discuss!
visual improvements: • less wasted space: paddings and margins have been reduced and optimized for usability, consistency, and overall beauty. • all links are now in italic. it's much easier to tell them apart from regular highlights. • error popup no longer looks broken and out of place. • download popup now has a proper close button, not something from 2.x era. • emoji are no longer selectable or draggable. • better scalability: desktop layout for home screen is shown if device viewport is wide enough to fit in three action buttons. • page shouldn't look broken on phones in landscape mode (i still highly recommend using cobalt in portrait mode). • removed bulletpoint padding. it was unnecessary. • updated some service names.
as always, you can suggest features or report bugs on any platform listed in the "support" section of about tab.
thank you for using cobalt. i hope you have a good day :)
