Grayjay: A game-changing approach to online video viewing

Grayjay is a new app allowing you to follow your favourite video creators and not the platform that is hosting them. This might be just what you need to improve your online video viewing.

In the world of online video content, we often find ourselves confined to the duopoly of Twitch and YouTube, where 99% of our online video experiences are dictated.

However, this status quo has its limitations and challenges. This article explores a revolutionary solution to these problems, a project that has been meticulously developed over the course of a year.

The predicament

The first issue that plagues the world of online video content is the dominance of Twitch and YouTube. These two platforms are the giants, controlling a staggering 99% of the content consumed online. But the problem is that switching to alternative platforms is often an unwelcome endeavour.

Adopting a new application for every new platform becomes tedious, and the new apps are typically optimised for specific platforms, making them limiting. Users often feel they are missing out on the vast universe of content available, driving them back to the mainstream platforms.

The second major issue is the ownership of user identity. When users subscribe to content creators, they’re essentially subscribing to a platform. The platforms hold the identity, not the users.

This is problematic because platforms are known for arbitrary censorship and can remove users without a clear reason. Creators don’t own their identities on these platforms, and even after a decade of presence, their accounts can be terminated instantly.

The Solution: Grayjay

Introducing Grayjay, a groundbreaking application designed to tackle these issues head-on. Grayjay is an application that reimagines how we watch online videos.

It offers several features and a unique approach to the online video viewing experience:

This means you can enjoy content from different platforms in one place, eliminating the need to switch between multiple apps.

Manage organize how you want it

Download capability

Grayjay provides a unified subscription feed that consolidates content creators from various platforms. You can subscribe to creators directly rather than subscribing to their profiles on specific platforms.

This approach offers more security and control for creators and ensures you don’t lose touch with your favourite content if they change platforms.

It aims to establish a direct and private connection between content creators and their audience, all while respecting digital privacy and user control.

Casting pick your device

While Grayjay is still in development, it offers a glimpse of a future where users and creators hold the reins of their online video experiences. It’s an invitation to try a different approach, one that prioritises creators and viewers over platforms.


In the end, Grayjay is about empowerment, choice, and the belief that users should be customers, not products. It’s a commitment to transparent and respectful relationships with users who value the software’s true worth.
