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.

Youtube api key is required to run this app. That's unfortunate but required due to recent google api changes.

No longer! No API key required!

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

Almost Perfect App - this is what Youtube has had to be in a better world.

Mister_Magister's picture

Almost perfect? Then here is a scenario. You have full control over me and i can do everything with the app you want. What are you gonna do

Installer acted a bit rudely for me, b/c MIME handling was afterwards set to open each URL with microtube. Had to delete some related mimeinfo.* - files and reboot to fix this.

Where are the files to delete?

glanternier's picture

Thanks ! It worked :-)

Mister_Magister's picture

do you have sailfish 3.1.0.11?

robomike's picture

Yes, Xperia X with 3.1.0.11

Mister_Magister's picture

and here is the fix! install 1.7.2

Wow! That's somehow impressive.  I removed microtube, installed the fix, and then tried to open a weblink from "Piepmatz" twitter client, and also from "DailyComics"-App - shit, nothing happens, they didn't open anymore. But after a reboot the MIME-handling for weblinks is back, and now whenever I tap on a weblink Sailfish asks me if I want to use the browser or microtube instead. 

I've never seen _that_ selection menu before, but it's okay....

Using Android (i. e. opening links from WhatsApp) there is still just the Android browser selection ("Browser" or Opera for me.)

Mister_Magister's picture

well i can't fix the android picker sorrey

Mister_Magister's picture

that selection menu came in 3.1.0.11 and i have never seen it too. didn't even know it existed in 3.1.0.11 lol

robomike's picture

Mister_Magister's picture

Yeah nice you like it! Yes it's the only sfos app to support gestures (on the other side you have volume slider). And more gestures to come with 2.0!
