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.

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

enrish's picture

delocoyo's picture

I cant install it simply

No update for 4.2?

Mister_Magister's picture

I haven't even updated my ports to 4.0 yet. Did it break in 4.2?

I have an issue.
A little while after installing microtube the links are not working on my phone. If I am in a mail clicking on a link to a webpage, it will try to open it with microtube.
To solve this I must do the following:
Uninstall microtube, removed some microtube folders and in the file:
~/.local/share/applications/mimeinfo.cach delete the lines with microtube.
Then run the commands:
devel-su update-desktop-database $HOME/.local/share/applications/
devel-su update-desktop-database /usr/share/applications/
Is there a way to solve this link issue with microtube installed.

On the subscriptions page you can click all videos or unwatched videos

uddghsjauszg's picture

Hi, I love the app but the only thing I would recommend for you is a page which shows the latest videos from your subscriptions because it's currently pointless to subscribe to a channel. Also it would be really nice to have have the likes and the upload date shown. Anyways, please keep up, I'm glad that there is a good, usable daily driveable native youtube client for sfos. :)

Mister_Magister's picture

its not pointless because such page already exists

rafaelflores's picture

Very nice app, thank you a lot!!! Could you please adjust the space to read the name of the videos? When the name is a little big, we can't see everything

Mister_Magister's picture

On the list right? i might look into it

enrish's picture

Hi, I've been happily using your app all the time. Now I think I found a bug. I have been hesitating before reporting as I can't reproduce it every single time.
I keep 'Adjust brightness automatically' activated in my display system settings. When I start Microtube it overrides the 'optimal' brightness level and the screen gets less bright (don't know if this is intended, but I find it defeates the purpose of having automatically brightness on - and this happens also with picoplayer). Now the bug is that when I close Microtube I find that the 'Adjust brightness automatically' setting has been deactivated.
This happens about 80% of the times. Sorry I could not find the exact steps to reproduce it, but I made sure this only happens after using Microtube.

For some reason it works on an other internet connection, strange. Thanks anyway

uddghsjauszg's picture

Umm for some reason it stopped working. Anyone also experiencing this?

ferlanero's picture

cd .local/share/microtube/microtube/js/ & npm update

Mister_Magister's picture

Try reinstalling nodejs, it helped for me. or you can try reinstalling both if it doesn't help. I suspect that node_modules need to be updated


uddghsjauszg's picture

Thank you very much for this project! I like it so much and it is very nice to have a still maintained yt player to help this platform become truly capable of a daily driver.

elkiaer's picture

Thanks, did not know that.
Useful if you only want to download sound.

Mister_Magister's picture

Or if you are listening to music/podcast

elkiaer's picture

When I use the app only the sound is present, there is no video.

Any chance of getting a 64bit version? Thanks!

Mister_Magister's picture

Currently sfos is too unstable to run 64bit microtube so we are waiting for sfos to get more stable
