This app is an alternative youtube client. You can watch videos and subscribe to channels. Subscriptions are offline.

If you have issues installing 3.0. Remove microtube, remove nodejs and then try again. You need nodejs18 package available in my repo.

Subscriptions can be imported. Import is in pulldown menu on subscriptions page. You need to be logged in to import subscriptions.

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

Liking is only available if you log in.

Microtube is using https://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube scope, make sure you have youtube data api as well as this scope enabled.

After you enable the scope, if you are already logged in, you have to relog!

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

Microtube uses SponsorBlock plugin

Complete and absolute overwrite, without minitube. Added login and comments and my custom video player that allows 1080p+ videos.

And by the way, the time bar really needs to be changed, i'm having really hard times using it especially in landscape mode...

Mister_Magister's picture

What difficulties? I use it with no problem

247's picture

Would be nice to have an option to copy links for the videos so we could share them :)

cvp's picture

Can you add a option to download videos and/or save as mp3 ? :)

Kelmi's picture

Oh actually I can go forward in videos, I just tried to press different locations, facepalm.

247's picture

It would be nice if we could open the videos description, useful when there is a lyric in there

Mister_Magister's picture

Full description is below video. I can't fetch more.

Kelmi's picture

Hello, I cannot go forward in videos. Is it bug? Everytime when trying to jump another place it simply stays current place.

I also noticed that sometimes microtube crashes when playing video and then going to sailfish multitask window. How I can send you some kind of logs for this crashing?

Btw nice app indeed and would be better than Ytplayer application if it possible to forward videos!

Mister_Magister's picture

1. Well its working for me but sure it could be buggy. Autoplay doesn't always work either.

2. Crash huh? Simply start it from terminal everything will be in there i hope

Kelmi's picture

Allright, that's little bit weird. Answering your second answer; Well I'm totally rookie in command line, So step by step guide would be necessity.?

Mister_Magister's picture

Just type microtube in terminal lol

jovpov's picture

search works but cannot click on result? Using landscape view on GeminiPDA SailFishOS

Mister_Magister's picture

What do you mean cannot click on search result? im clicking and everything is fine?

Mister_Magister's picture

Combination of yt api and some other things

minitreintje's picture

I made a PR to automatically hide the controls when they are not used

Mister_Magister's picture

I know

Really nice app for a 0.1.
Clean UI and plays videos without any issue.

The only issue I encountered is when you first launch (just after a fresh install) it. No view count and nothing plays. After a restart it works fine.

Are you open for PR's on Github?

Mister_Magister's picture

Sure lol. Its really strange probably some minitube initialisation. Psst: its 0.1 cause i forgot to change it to 1.0 xD

minitreintje's picture

Yeah probably, if I understand it correctly, youtube-dl isn't used but a custom thing from Minitube to retrieve videos

addy's picture

Not able to watch videos. Clicking search results does nothing. SFOS 2.1.14.

Mister_Magister's picture

start it from terminal and see whats happening or just update sfos lol
