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!

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

...but it doesn't start :/

Mister_Magister's picture

Sanpo's picture

It works, thanks :)

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'"


try this

Sanpo's picture

Been waiting this update since bought my 10 II. Thank You :)

Works now. Thanks for your effort.

Mister_Magister's picture

enrish's picture

Thank you for the update, it plays smoothly now

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.

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.

uddghsjauszg's picture

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
