Note: The quota issue should now be fixed. Thanks a lot for help, tworaz!

Note: I will soon update the Jolla Store release of YTPlayer, so please report any issues as soon as possible!

YTPlayer is an unofficial YouTube client for SailfishOS.

This version is a fork of YTPlayer by osetr, which is a fork of YTPlayer by tworaz.

The current version is mostly just an updated build with current youtube-dl, but there are important performance fixes and many layout adjustements, too.

Source code is available at GitHub. Pull requests and translations are welcome!

PS: Would be happy if available in Jolla store at some point...it should be the standard YTplayer ;-)

Great progress, I like the refined app a lot and would be happy to donate! However, I noticed a glitch that it freezes (app completely unusable...even restart/reinstalling doesn't help) when browsing a YT channel :-( Hope you have time to check or eventually be able to fix it!

Is this app coming update jolla store? :)

But after all very good job!! Works very well with my sailfish x xperia xa2. Thank you! ☺

Okay... It looks like IPv6/both on mobile broadband (DNA/Finland) breaks it. Using IP (IPv4) results in videos played flawlessly. Dang it!

@akikk88 I have noticed the same thing. I have found mobile broadband being less successful than WLAN (even though I can play the same video on browser via either) on starting playback, so if possible, try it over WLAN. I'll try to figure out how to collect some useful debug information about this...

Some times shows videos, but not always..

Can't find any video too, had a look on terminal output and it says i have exceeded my quota, maybe this is useful

direc85's picture

That is correct; there seems to be a quota on the Google aggount I created. I will look into it soon (tomorrow).

Seems i have reached my quota limit for almost everything the app can do :p but anyway don't feel in a hurry :)
