This app is an alternative youtube client based on minitube. You can watch videos and subscribe to channels. There is no login to youtube account. Subscriptions are offline.

Subscriptions can be imported. Import is in pulldown menu on subscriptions page.

Youtube api key is required to run this app. That's unfortunate but required due to recent google api changes.

If you scroll left on main screen you will have access to categories. You can set default category in settings

Filters are only available if you search for something.

To cast to jupii, jupii needs to be running first and connected to device/

You can donate me here paypal.me/MisterMagister

Since a few days videos will play with audio only, leaving the loading spinner animation running instead of showing a video.
I tried getting some debug info running microtube from the terminal but all i can make out is that video format '140' is chosen. No errors AFAICS.
is there any workaround?

After digging around in the source code I found the commit introducing the audio only mode. For some reason I don't have a setting for this in microtubes preference page.
I ended up using dconf to fix it manually.

dconf write /apps/microtube/audioOnlyMode "false"

As a matter of fact no, there was no pulley to disable audio only. Just a greyed out one saying '720p'. Maybe it's me but could be an UX bug here

Mister_Magister's picture

No it's not, cause it's not in fucking pulldown menu. You didn't read what i wrote.

fllp's picture

Oh I'm sorry. I misread the 'pull up'. So it was in fact me.
Pardon the confusion

That was it! (swipe up in Portrait Mode) a simple fix! Thank you so much. eveutally i want to donate to this app and other developers apps i use. Thanks, next i will look in the direcrory to figure out how to store/backup the subscrption list. Not its only 5-15 subs, but back on my androd device i have one thousand accounts i'm subbed to, and it was no way i'm manually adding all those here. LOVE THR APP BTW

Well there were plans to make loginning in into yt but that's not yet made.

as to config. in .local/share/microtube/microtube/APP_UNIX_NAME.db (it's sqlite db so you can use some sqlite viewer) you can add records to subscriptions table and it should work if you do it correctly :)

The video doesn't seem display, all i get sound. I dont want to re-install the application because i know the (my) subscription list will beblost forever (less then me writing down ever single sub manually )

Mister_Magister's picture

your subscription wouldn't really need to be lost there is microtube directory in .config/microtube and/or .local/share/microtube and nothing should remove them when u uninstall (or you can backup those)

Mister_Magister's picture

try  swiping up on the video while in the portrait mode like put your finger on video and move upwards. Maybe you got audio only mode :P

The 720p option seems to be broken

Ezreal's picture

Often automatically jump to another video, and I want to set the default video quality

By the way, did you find my repaired translation?

Mister_Magister's picture

Unfortunately you didn't  show the end of log on the screenshots, where the carsh happens :/

Mister_Magister's picture

yes, yes i did

Malakay's picture

So, great :) Im looking forward to see my translation in app :) By the way, I tried today to play videos, app once crashed and after restart it worked again. But its weird, sometimes app crashes with no reason.

After update to 1.8.1 I'm experiencing constant crashes after I try to play any video. Xperia X 3.2.0.12. Tried to reinstall but the issue continues.
Am I the only one?

Mister_Magister's picture

Yep probably you are the only one. It's working fine for me. Try running it from terminal and see what happens?

trial's picture

I managed to get it running, after I deleted it's cache with Mashka. :)
10x.

Sorry for bothering you again, but it would be fantastic to be able to read full description of the videos.

This shortened description preview at the moment is good and compact (don't take it away), but many times it's not enough to have it only. If this short preview could be expanded to full view it would be great. Not mentioning clickable links (if any) in the description.

Mister_Magister's picture

yeah it's already in issues list
