Hi All,

NEW RELEASE: Zing YouTube Player version 0.9.5 has had a major update to improve the look and feel.

The Zing Player is an Android alternative YouTube app that aims to be one of the the best YouTube apps on Android.
The Zing YouTube Player has advanced features compared to the stock Google Player. The ZingPlayer keeps the current playing video window always visible so you can keep watching when searching for something to watch next. (Unlike the original Google YouTube app which stops playing a soon as you search for more videos!)


The Zing YouTube Player has:
  • Search and view results while still watching.
  • Advanced Play Queue
  • Easy Navigation
  • Swipe left/right to see pages of Videos
  • Favourite Videos
  • Favourite Channels
  • Play History
  • Search suggestions when typing a search.

Please post what you think of the new Zing YouTube Player and list what new features you would like to be added in future.

Thanks

The Zing Player developer.

Tried it, has some really nice features over the official app. Here's some thoughts on it.

- need to be able to login to your account
- continue playback even when screen is off would be nice
- no exit button to kill the app
- design could be better?

Still, it's a very nice first version

Yep that is on my todo list.

This would be a very useful addition but unfortunately:
  1. It is against the Google YouTube developers terms and conditions.
  2. The new Google YouTube Android Player that I am using automatically stops if it put in the background or covered up by anything.
There are lots of apps that do work in the background and it is a very useful feature so I don't know why they prevent this.

Just press the home button to exit, I put the app totally to sleep when you press the home button.

Liking the app, it has a nice search function and I like how you setup the ui functionality. What I dislike are the various colors for different sections. I find it a bit distracting to see one section red, another blue and then green. I also can not seem to find anywhere to login to my account, "menu" only gives me search option.
