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

Oh and I'm on aarch64

Mister_Magister's picture

Pull up on the video while vertical. you just turned on audio only mode

aviarus's picture

First of all thanks for this very great application. Unfortunately after a few videos watched it only played sound and now it doesn't play videos at all. I even tried removing temporary data with mashka and reinstalling.

Branja's picture

Thx for the info, for your help, and for this awesome app.

Mister_Magister's picture

thanks for using it, glad u enjoy

Branja's picture

I'm sorry if I'm causing any of that hair ripping along with Lineage OS. I did those steps and it's working. Thank you very much! What was causing the issue (if it irritates you to explain it right now, you don't have to)?

Mister_Magister's picture

I removed npm install command from microtube, i should probably add it back

Branja's picture

Whoah, that was a fast response . No unfortunately, they don't.

Mister_Magister's picture

I'm ripping hair ouf of my head fighting with lineageos at 4am so ye fast response

hmmm, try (in terminal) going to .local/share/microtube/microtube/js, and run "npm install"

Branja's picture

How can I use this app? I'm running SFOS 4.3 on Xperia XA2 Ultra. I've installed node.js as well as your app. It loads everything and I can search for the videos, but when it comes to playing them, it's stuck in an infinite loop (like this - https://imgur.com/a/mPNEm2N). On data and wi-fi.

What should I do?

Mister_Magister's picture

have you made sure to have latest version? try restarting the app if that doesn't help, close app, remove ".local/share/microtube/microtube/js" and then restart the app (two times just to make sure)

Branja's picture

The latest version from the openrepos (version 2.1.5). I've deleted the folder you mentioned. Started the app, then killed it. Started it again through terminal, tried to play the video, and this is the output that I've got - https://i.imgur.com/uaa5x3e.png

Mister_Magister's picture

videos still don't play?

Sanpo's picture

Mister_Magister's picture

Sanpo's picture

Mister_Magister's picture

Mister_Magister's picture

“I solved it by editing .desktop file, I replace 'silica-qt5' by 'generic' in 'X-Nemo-Application-Type'"

Sanpo's picture

enrish's picture

delocoyo's picture

I cant install it simply

delocoyo's picture

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?

elkiaer's picture

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.
