Starting today, all content creators will be required to label their videos as either “made for kids” or “not made for kids”. Videos that are labeled “made for kids” will have limited data collection and restrict certain features such as comments and notifications. Targeted ads will also be restricted from running. While creators are required to label videos, YouTube says they will also employ machine learning to find videos aimed at a younger audience.
The company will also be heavily promoting YouTube Kids, a more restricted version of YouTube with content filters and parental controls.
This one has been around for at least 7 years… It is called Toogl.es. What you will find is a very stripped down interface that allows you to search for and watch YouTube videos.

Freemake software can convert multiple YouTube links to MP3 at once. Download full music collections from YouTube with one click. No limits!
