Week 2: Toward Playlists

Sorry for the late update! Not as much to announce this week, but still a couple things of note:

I'm happy to announce that a playlists page and API endpoint has been added so you can now view playlists. Currently, you cannot watch playlists through the player, but I hope to add that in the coming week as well as adding functionality to add and modify playlists. There is a good conversation on #114 about giving playlists even more functionality, which I think is interesting and would appreciate feedback on.

As an update to the Invidious API announcement last week, I've been working with @PrestonN, the developer of FreeTube, to help migrate his project to the Invidious API. Because of it's increasing popularity, he has had trouble keeping under the quota set by YouTube's API. I hope to improve the API to meet his and others needs and I'd recommend folks to keep an eye on his excellent project! There is a good discussion with his thoughts here.

A couple of miscellaneous features and bugfixes:

Enjoy your week everyone!
