Temporary fix for node dependency


Matias's picture

Search no longer works for me, it just loads the front page or stays blank

Mister_Magister's picture


once this is fixed seach will return

Mister_Magister's picture

Confirmed, that mostlikely means change in node side

lpr's picture

is there any reason that the app requires SFOS4.5 or shouldn't it work with older versions, too?

If it should work with older versions then adding %define _binary_payload w2.xzdio in the .spec file and .yaml file is required to switch rpm compression back from zstd to xz (older SFOS cannot handle zstd) https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/q-4-5-will-switch-rpm-compression-what-do...

Mister_Magister's picture

I mean sure but why? just update

lpr's picture

as a Jolla1 user, I can't.

I can update gstreamer to newest 1.22.x , libjpeg-turbo , openssl1.1.1 , glib2 and qt5 from SFOS4.0 and 4.1 , newer libsolv even libzstd ... , but I doubt I can easily Install newer rpm/libzypp versions when looking at their build-dependencies

Mister_Magister's picture

as a jolla 1 user you also don't have vp9 decoding

lpr's picture

I do have (libvpx is just SW and not HW but 720p is no problem with Jolla1 - 1080p sometimes possible).
I even have AV1 decoding via libaom (youtube-ret395: 240p@30fps) possible on Jolla1

Mister_Magister's picture

Need some more info on that can you contact me elsewhere?

lpr's picture

well, sure...
where? forum.sailfishos.org?

Mister_Magister's picture

email, forun, telegram, irc, twitter literally anywhere you want :)

NGC_Ollie's picture

Is it just me or is it impossible to get the list of unwatched videos since 3.3.2-0? All videos is the same, i only get the "front page".

Mister_Magister's picture

they do load… just after the recommended videos because i'm on crack and forgot to clear the list xd

acid's picture

searching fetching video info comments etc are working, but playing videos not.

samsung galaxy a5 2017 (a520f)

Mister_Magister's picture

Your phone doesn't support vp9 decoding, which for 2017 is hilarious.

Hope you don't buy samsung ever again :)

acid's picture


Mister_Magister's picture

other option for you than new phone would be to harass jolla to fix bug in droidmedia i reported over a year ago, then we can switch back to avc1 which all phones support

Seven_of_nine's picture

Playing works fine, downloading only one time, after several tries, the rendering of the screen crashed while video itself was still playing without any issues.

edit: a reboot did it, now working fine. Thank you much MisterMagister !

ncrranger's picture

Hi sir
Only two things I've detected:
- Small framerate (tested on 60fps video)
15-30 fps on the screen imo, tested on Xperia XA2
- Autoplay when you stopped video and swithed to another app after some time
Another things going well
Thank you for your great work!

Mking's picture

Mister magister sir can you please help me videos aren't playing for me can you please guide me I installed nodejs18 from your repo as instructued but the videos are not playing I don't want to sign in I just want to watch youtube videos

mailyaseen's picture

Even, if i do not want to login, then also i need to add scope ?

And do i need to remove the installed one from the list and add this your one (first in the list)?

Mister_Magister's picture

if you do not want to login you don't have to do anything with youtube

DylanP's picture

Thanks for keeping this app updated but one question regarding the latest one, since the update everytime i click any URL in any app it always pops up asking to open in the Browser or Microtube, is this intended or some way i can change it?

Mister_Magister's picture

yes thats obviously intended, The feature was there but i removed it at some point so i restored it, its to launch youtube links in microtube

DylanP's picture

Thats fair enough but surely there is a way for it to ask with only youtube links and not every link i click ;) but i do appreciate the work you put into the app btw, so no disrespect meant

Mister_Magister's picture

Actually no… there isn't. I've made some patch in sailfishos like year or so ago but i'm not even sure it works xd

DylanP's picture

I looked into it more and i changed your MimeType line in microtube-url to x-url-handler/youtube.com and it works as intended and only shows the option to open microtube for youtube links

Mister_Magister's picture

that's… my patch in effect

DylanP's picture

Well atleast it works haha, will the change i made get reverted after updates to the app? Not a big deal but just so i know
