Unfortunately I cannot maintain this fork anymore. I ask the community to commit to further development of YTPlayer.

Honestly I don't know. I didn't study sources in details. I could try to implement IFrame player which should solve many issues if I have time. But I don't know how good the performance would be.

Would it be nice to have the no stream error fixed...or is it just impossible?

osetr's picture

As I know YouTube does not have a native API for platforms other than Android. So it's not possible just show a Youtube video with a native player. Possible solutions are to embed an IFrame YouTube player into a webview or to use youtube-dl to search for streams. YTPlayes uses youtube-dl.

But if i get finnish support, it's fine to me :)

akikk69's picture

osetr's picture

English is not my native language too))

akikk69's picture

Ok! Thank you very match :)

akikk69's picture

720p Videos stuttering in Jolla Phone

Ancelad's picture

I don't have any problems with 720p videos (Jolla C SFOS Is it possible to add streams watching feature?

Ingvix's picture

I'd love to have live streams supported too.

Caballlero's picture

I upgraded to harbour-ytplayer-0.5.6-1 then not work any more. "MessageError: [ Can not get stream to reproduce ]" Also can you give a little more buffers..i have an issue to reproduce 720p too.

thanks ...

osetr's picture

Did you upgrade from a version from the OpenRepos or the Harbour?

Caballlero's picture

I use Warehouse. version  0.5.5-1 worked to me, but current version not work, maybe something it wrong related to   [ Disable youtube-dl extractors other than youtube to reduce package file size ]

osetr's picture

I admit that I have badly tested that update. I revert changes to youtube-dl extractors and published a new version. Please update and give your feedback if it works.

Caballlero's picture

Yes ,now it is work with the new release . Only i have problem to reproduce videos 720p, this problem has been in effect since the first version. Give more buffer time, I think it would solve


olf's picture

Are you sure the your network setup suffices videos in 720p (WRT bandwidth *and* jitter), e.g. do other Players (on your SFOS device, e.g. with LLs vPlayer, and / or other devices / video players) in the same WLAN display 720p videos from YouTube without stuttering?
I have also seen this issue, but only occasionally, when WLAN reception was weak.

Caballlero's picture

well, i have 20gb in bandwidth, i dont have problem to reproduce 720p in the fresh release webcat browser, or LLs vPlayer. i suspect that the buffer time in YTplayer it too short.

osetr's picture

I also have problems with 720p videos, but I don't know how to increase qml MediaPlayer buffer size. I need time or someone's help to figure it out.

mr_Upolo's picture

Would it possible to watch Subscriptions page with all recently video like in the android YT app?

Caballlero's picture

OK, must be somewhere the file. I will check & testing too.
