Sync online playlist feature

[/COLOR]I thought this app was from office youtube. I installed the app. It is pre logged with [email protected]. How can we use our own I'd so that we can retrieve our own youtube playlist.
Thanks for your feedback. It's useful, "Sync online playlist" feature will be implemented in next version. :good:

You can send feedback directly in the left menu of the App. :p

I suggest that on the search result, not only show the name of the video / music, but also the length of time, how long for the video / music.

And also, it would be great if the search result can show the playlist of other people, like on the official YouTube app.

This app is absolutely genius!! Thank you so much for creating this!

Suggestions:

- Settings to choose default quality to download
- Removal of default youtube account, or implementation of option to use our own account (app is really early version, I understand)
- Option to exit the app from the notification on lockscreen (for now pause and swipe it away)

Bugs:

- Alot of urls cannot be fetched for some reason (lukas graham feat Brandon Beal golden for example), but I encountered 6-10 songs in 25 tries (once a song reports error, retrying never helps though the message suggests it)

Last note - what about the legal aspect of this app, especially in regards to the download feature? Have you considered a reaction from Google?

Kind Regards

:p Hmm, I know that. The application's purpose is just bringing the comfortable to user by provide some "limited features" of youtube app such as listening sound from video to save bandwidth and saving offline contents. It has a bit of trouble about video's copyright but I think it can be ignore because there are many website and browser/plugin does the same.
The app is Non-profit 100%. I neither intend to publish it on Play store nor compete with youtube app.

Thanks :good:

About servers and availability - is the conversion of songs and fetching from YouTube happen on your server infrastructure? If yes, you might want to change that to happen on the user's phone, at least any part of the process requirering bandwidth, as that is the pricy part. Also to avoid local restrictions on content.. The conversion of songs, I don't know if that is possible locally on Android, it requires you to add much more code to the app.

About copyright, I think you are right, but moving workload to the individual device also helps here :good:

Current version also fetches related songs, after current playback (online) ended, the next one related with it will auto play.
I planning to design screen "Player" which help you to control playback (seek, next, pause,...) and see the related songs.

Just noticed the following errors when downloading songs.. I guess the timestamps and titles will allow you to investigate if necessary.
Oh, I got it, I have fixed this bug and will include it in next versions.

Big thanks for you. :D

Love the app idea.

Here are suggestions:

1). Playlists - It would be nice to search/play music playlists.

2). Seek Bar - There are some long music mixes or playlists converted into one large file, the ability to fast forward the long track is not possible.

These two features makes YouTube a great app for music.

With Amazon Fire TV arm64 libs start to download but then the app crashed and won't start up again. Deleted cache and data and the app will start again and trying to download the libs again but it is again crashing.

I'm thinking of it. May be my app detects wrong CPU architecture of your devices (I see some topic say about android TV issues with CPU arch).

Your TV's cpu is arm64, does my app download arm64-libs.zip? :)

Thanks for your report.
