1. I want Closed Captions (CC) / Subtitles always off.
2. I want YouTube Vanced to work with Google assistant.
For example: When I say 'Ok Google, play an xyz song on YouTube' then it says 'YouTube is Disabled!'. I disabled the official YouTube because of ads'
Please make this open in Vanced.
3. You already said about casting bug so that's ok.
4. Brightness sync when shifting to horizontal view (landscape mode).
5. Option to download any video to watch offline.

In case you hadn't noticed, Vanced has been discontinued (due to Google) so there'll be no further development.

My vanced still works perfectly
Mine quite working months ago when the Youtube app got updated on the phone (even though i had updates turned off), and I was unable to roll it back to a previous version.

I've installed re-vanced, which mostly works, but does not allow me to open the video settings, so I can set a default playback speed.

I'd love to either get vanced working again, or find a way to set the default playback speed in re-vanced.

Same here, it's just not remembering history. Which is sort of annoying as it keeps suggesting the videos I've already seen, but still beats regular YT. Is history still working for you?
History and everything is working perfectly fine on v15.43.32 with latest microG v2.24.220220. I never updated Vanced to anything newer because Cast feature is very important for me.

The non-root version works perfectly fine on Android 13 (tested on Android 13 stable builds of OneUI, OOS and MIUI).

You can either disable YouTube app if required (so all YouTube links open in the Vanced app itself) or let both run independently.

    That is Google's warning screen.
    Telling you that the version you have installed is EOL (End-Of-Life).

    v15.43.32 is old. 🙃

    The last version of Vanced was v17.03.38.
    - Supports Android 6 and newer.
    Home screen ads are now showing with Vanced v17.03.38.


    See my reply in my module thread. I gave a link to my last module using the Vanced patched apk and how to install it.
    [MODULE] Inject YouTube - Post #28 - Link

    Cheers. :cowboy:
    My phone is not rooted.

    I was using that version because it had a working cast feature and was very battery efficient, but cast is not too important for me anymore as I have a Premium subscription. I have updated to v17.03.38 now and still prefer Vanced on phone due to the swipe controls which are very convenient.

    Vanced works very fine and I'll stick with it until v17.03.38 stops working. One of the reasons is because revanced has its own learning curve, so I'll wait until Vanced stops working. The other reason being Vanced works independently along with the official YouTube app. I think Revanced requires the official app to be disabled.

    As with casting, I got the premium subscription because casting from Vanced would show ads on TV (Chromecast). I guess it is the same with Revanced too.
    ReVanced non-root doesn't need official youtube to be disabled so you can have both installed.
    The learning curve is minimal if you've used vanced.

    Is anyone seeing this full page error now?

    Clicking on update takes to an error page on Google Play Store (obviously because this isn't from Google Play Store).

    I'm on version 15.43.32.

    Update

    Delete app data for YouTube Vanced solves the problem, but only temporarily. The message returns within a couple of hours if the app isn't running.
    That is Google's warning screen.

    ‼️Before asking or posting anything, please read the first and second posts.‼️

    Always check the official Vanced website or XDA thread when downloading. Other sites are fake, contain advertisements (possibly even malware), and have older versions.

    Vanced is a well-known modded version of the YouTube app with many features such as ad-blocking and background playback. Vanced also offers some extra features to enhance the user experience. The entire list is available below:

    Features:



    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    Since YouTube v14.41.52, Google has moved to split APKs format. The Android package installer doesn't support Split apks yet, so we are now using Vanced manager for installing all vanced apps. The steps to use the vanced manager are below:
    Especially for MIUI, there's a separate guide that can be accessed using this link. For all other devices, please follow below:

    For Non-Root:
    1. Install Vanced Manager
    2. Open Vanced Manager and tap the blue arrow in the lower right corner.
    3. Begin installing Vanced microG. (Without which you won't be able to install Vanced (or Music Vanced) or use login)
    4. Then install Vanced (or Music Vanced), log in to your account and enjoy!
    For Root:
    1. Install Vanced Manager
    2. Open Vanced manager and tap on the "Magisk" icon to grant root permissions.​
    3. Once you are in, begin installing Vanced (or Music Vanced).​


    Important information:

    • We replaced our root installation with vanced manager, which directly mounts vanced on top of Youtube in the /data/app directory, making it easier and faster than before.
    • Vanced will not block ads while casting since when you use the casting feature, it doesn't send the video from your phone to the Chromecast/TV. Instead, your phone acts like a remote controller for the youtube app in your Chromecast/TV. That is why the advertisement is displayed.
    • Purchasing items in the non-root version of the app will not work as microG doesn't support it. Hence, it is preferable to use the original YouTube app or using the web version for any purchase.
    • If your videos are lagging or the application starts to crash while watching live videos, please enable VP9 codec from codec override present under vanced settings. Google forced the ExoPlayer v2, which is highly experimental and unstable on unsupported devices.
    • YouTube has dropped support for Android 5 (Lollipop) with v17.xx.xx. Hence, the minimum supported version is now Android 6 and above.


    Known bugs:

    • Swipe down gesture for refreshing home feed breaks randomly. It's an issue with litho that only Google can fix. There's nothing we can do to fix it. (Tap here to learn more)
    • As of v16.16.38, casting won't work due to an upstream microG bug. (Tap here to learn more)
    • On portrait/vertical videos, preferred quality options do not work.
    • Swipe controls triggers when swiping either upwards or downwards to scroll through description or in live chat when in landscape mode.
    • On new action bar layouts(server-sided feature), the new toggles won't work.
    • Info cards toggle is broken (Temp fix: Disable it through your Google account settings. This setting disables info cards everywhere.)
    • App crashes with java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError while playing some video outside of vanced.
    • Manual codec override is broken and very experimental.
    • Some users might face geographical ads on YouTube Shorts tab.
    • SponsorBlock segments at the end of videos in playlists causes playback on the next video to start where the previous one ended.

    BUG Reports:


    Steps to do before reporting a bug:
    1. Do a search and see if it has already been reported
    2. Check that the bug is actually a Vanced bug and doesn't happen in the original YouTube.
    Steps to do when reporting a bug:
    1. Make sure you are being enough descriptive of the problem.
    2. Take a logcat (Google search if you don't know how). Especially if the issue is a crash.
    3. Taking pictures of the problem doesn't hurt.
    4. If the report is vague (missing information), it will most likely just be ignored. If you are not going to show any effort in resolving the problem, why should I?

    1. Vanced exact version number (Do NOT say latest).
    2. Download link used to download Vanced.
