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.

IMPORTANT! In order for microtube to work, you need to install Kabouik's nodejs app from here

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.

No longer! No API key required!

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.

Microtube uses SponsorBlock plugin

The videos dont play, searching works but when the video comes it just keeps loading.
(I have defaultuser and not nemo)

rossholmes's picture

Same for me, unfortunately

Mighty's picture

Mister_Magister's picture

Noone said anything about reflashing sailfish. restart app

Mighty's picture

ohk wow it worked now, guess it takes a long time to load thanks for the help and the app :D
Edit : A few feature requests (no hurries) - subtitles, changing the speed and resolution :)

Now it tells to check internet connection, but my wifi is working :(

Mister_Magister's picture

Just try and restart app

Great, thanks!

Yes, but for the moment I uninstalled Microtube... And it's still active.

remove ~/.local/share/applications/microtube-url.desktop
run update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications/

Okay, thanks! Could you make the setting optional four opening urls with Microtube? I hardly ever need it. It remains after uninstalling too, which is not very useful. The app is very promising though, thanks four developing!

Mister_Magister's picture

I could but i rather wait for my domain handling patch to come in next sfos update

rob_k's picture

I'm searching how to get rid of this option. Mimer doesn't do the trick. What would be the best way to do this?

Mister_Magister's picture

em… it will reinstall itself every time you open microtube ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

rob_k's picture

Unfortunately, I'm not nemo but defaultuser on my XA2. Both nodejs and Microtube are not playing along completely. I can find videos, but can't play them :(

Mister_Magister's picture

Microtube is adjusted for other users. Node.js isn't though… i will build nodejs myself some time soon so just wait

delocoyo's picture

Node.js were installed. Now seems to work. Thanks

Mister_Magister's picture

:) 

PS: there's a reply function on openrepos

delocoyo's picture

In xa2. The app is able to search but it doesnt play the videos

Mister_Magister's picture

Have you installed node.js? Did you try restarting app (nodejs packages update every time you start it).

The app works amazing for me, but only on WiFi. On mobile data, it exits the app after a sec or two. Also, how does one import the subscriptions?

 

Edit: Xperia XA2 Single SIM SFOS 4

Mister_Magister's picture

Pull down menu -> Subscriptions -> Pull down menu -> import. Idk if it still work tho xd

JacekJagosz's picture

Could you give more info how did you test subscriptions import? I saved youtube.com to html in both Firefox and Edge (Chromium) and in both the app didn't do anything. Did you do it with Chrome, any other settings necessary?

Mister_Magister's picture

Ye it's broken then. I will have to steal use subscripton import from minitube its better.

@emka1111 swipe up on the video while in portrait mode ;)

emka1111's picture

Mister_Magister's picture
