OK so i managed to install the app, everything's great except, whenever I try to comment on a YouTube video the keyboard covers up the textbox so I can't see what I'm typing, is there anyway to fix this?

(Before you say anything pic related is just a screenshot from web, obviously i have YT-Vanced installed,
but this guy has the same problem I'm experiencing.)

Thanks.

You have to use a video enhancer compatible package name, I posted a list of those a while back in this very thread. Basically you can change this apps package name to youtube kids and it will show up in the video enhancer list. We don't do it because someone might be using the youtube kids app and hence this wouldn't be compatible, so you have to do it yourself.

Thanks worked perfectly but I'm having another problem now. With the new renamed vanced app I cant sign in with my Google account.

At first it said "this account already exists", so I deleted the old Google account in settings as u previously instructed but even after that it goes past the sign in page like everything is ok and keeps asking me to sign in again. Not sure what the problem is?

Does anyone know if I can use flashfire because every time I try to flash it it never installs galaxy s7 edge
Yes you can. I used flashfire to install it on my s8. It doesn't really matter what you use to flash it. Just be aware that that you have to set your date back manually on your phone to anytime before April to have flashfire open and work. And whatever you do, don't enable pro because then flashfire will crash consistently and you'll have to delete the app and redownload it from the play store. Also, if it doesn't open the first time and ask for root, make sure you have your date set back and that it's in airplane mode. If that still doesn't work to open it and ask for root, then reboot your phone and try the steps again and it should work and if it still doesn't open, a second reboot for sure get it to open lol. Flashfire is super picky sometimes but it'll work eventually.

FlashFire works if you've purchased Pro.
No need to change the date.

If you are using Magisk for root. Read the ff thread. FlashFire
Magisk v14.2 seems to be the average that works with ff depending on device.

Features:
  • Blocks all YouTube ADs (some options are togglable)
  • Background playback feature
  • Force VP9(or HDR) or vice versa
  • Override Max Resolution
  • Pinch to Zoom on all devices
  • Casting togglable (can be forced off)
  • Togglable Theme (White/Dark/Black)
  • PiP (Oreo Only)
  • Video window new or old style
  • Repeat video feature
  • Preffered Resolution & Speed feature
  • New Logo by @Logan


Downloads:
GDrive (All versions)
Alternative Mirrors: AFH (rarely updated) Mediafire (only the latest)

Installation Instructions:NB!

Non-root: Install the apk normally and install microg found in the download links above.

Root:
  1. Download the official installer found in downloads above
  2. Select a suitable apk for your device (check your architecture using an app such as CPU-Z) and the secondary theme you want to. (All apks include the white theme)
  3. Place the downloaded apk into /sdcard/Downloads or inside the installation zip
  4. Uninstall all YouTube updates and disable auto-update in the playstore (If you are able to completely uninstall the youtube app do so)
  5. Flash the installer in TWRP
  6. Profit!

Magisk:

There are a total of 3 ways to install the module via magisk.
The first and most simple way is to install it via the magisk repo and it is the recommended way.
The second way is to place "Install via magisk.plz" or enable magisk install in the settings.sh from the root installer.
The third and final way is to use the magisk modules provided on the Download Mirrors.
Uninstall all YouTube updates and disable auto-update in the playstore (If you are able to completely uninstall the youtube app do so). Updated app will override the app installed in the system partition so even if the mod installation succeeds, you will not see it.



Explanation of the (Ad)Vanced options of the official installer:
Vanced makes use of both a settings.sh and plz files as parameters while installing.

Using the settings.sh
  • SEARCHFOLDER - Path where to search for iYTBP Apk's (must be a subfolder on sdcard!)
  • MAGINSTALL - Use magisk installation instead of root installation. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
  • DETACH - Detach Youtube from playstore to disable update notifications. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
  • ATTACH - Attach Youtube to playstore if it was previously detached. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
  • UNINSTALL - Completely uninstall iYTBP: root version, magisk module and detach module (Possible Values: YES/NO)

Using the plz files (Use only the ones you want)
(All should be placed in /sdcard/Download/)
  • iYTBP_install_via_magisk.plz - Use magisk installation instead of root installation
  • iYTBP_detach_from_playstore.plz - Detach Youtube from playstore to disable update notifications.
  • iYTBP_attach_to_playstore.plz - Attach Youtube to playstore if it was previously detached.
  • iYTBP_uninstall.plz - Completely uninstall iYTBP: root version, magisk module and detach module.


Known bugs:
  1. What bugs? Never heard of them. :D
  2. Self created playlists only show up to 20 videos (This is a bug that is also in the Official YouTube app).
  3. Infinite comments loading bug once coming back from background playback (Fixed 13.16.54 upwards)
  4. Preferred quality and Preferred speed not working for playlists (Trying to find a better hook).
  5. Live chat is not themed (Will be fixed in the future updates).
  6. Ok, not really a bug but since people don't read it's experimental, ExoPlayer V2 might be causing crashes when coming back from background playback on some devices.

Sorry, the number is actually 98.73%. :laugh:

Does the app work as it should? If so, don't worry about trivial cosmetics and be thankful for the amount of time others have put into creating this mod for FREE.

People on xda sure emphasis on free. No develoepr work for free if they doesn't gain anything in return weather it would be money or experience to work on a project.

Nobody is fool enough to waste there time on something from which they would not gain anything.

And people on xda make others feel like they are doing favor on others by providing it for free. Most of the apps or roms from xda are full of bugs and dont work as good as stock rom. They only do these works to make their resume strong so tbey good job or enogh priase from the users.

Unike others things on internet xda is a business not a hobby. Developers tend to abandon the project once they gain enough experience to work on the things they like. And they call it hobby so they dont have to deal with annoying bug reports or feature request from the users.

My friend you can not possibly believe this. As someone who has shared projects on xda that had taken me months to complete, I can assure you that I am not trying to bolster my resume.

Admittedly, my projects are for a Samsung note 4 that is quickly becoming an antique and if verizon didn't use CDMA I would be able to use roms and kernels from real developers, but everybody else moved on (my device didn't have method to unlock the bootloader until 2 years after the release date) and since I was building these things for myself anyway I decided to share these projects. I'm not a developer though, I'm never going to be a developer, I'm certainly never going to make any money developing, I'm just another android junkie that likes to mess with my phone.

I'm sure some of the stuff here on this site looks good on a resume but I think that's more of a by product. I actually enjoy looking through lines of code to try and add features or change cosmetics or through logcats trying to find that elusive answer. It truly is a hobby for me.

I have a GED and wait tables at restaurant for christ sake and so far every single developer/contributor on this site that I've sought advice from works a job unrelated to programming or coding. So, while I don't really like to toss around the "it's free so deal with it" card the amount of work that a person can put into some projects are lost on most people and unfortunately I think a lot xda members share your view point.

I think you should try looking at this from a different perspective and just appreciate all that we have here on this site. Think of the amount of time that some of the more experienced people have put into creating guides just so a person like me can learn to do something that I never thought I could. Is a xda a business? Certainly, but it's also a community of people willing to help each other out simply because they enjoy it.

    This is the deatached Info of YouTube. But still ask for update. Any clue?
    Try updating it and watch it get funky 🕺 Make sure TeMeFi is running properly (not battery optimized, preferably locked in recents).
    Nope. TeMeFI does NOT run in the background to achieve the result. So you can optimise the heck out of it, even uninstall it. It inserts its little diabolic code into the playstore. Once the playstore is contaminated, TeMeFI can be uninstalled. But I would personally keep it installed in case one day, Google get wise and do an update that uninstalls my code; so you can easily re-apply it. It hasn't happened yet.

    The problem here is that he has used METHOD 1 on youtube. Youtube MUST have Method 3 applied. And unfortunately, method 1 makes it difficult to then apply method 3.

    My best suggestion is to:
    1. Remove YouTube from detachment using TeMeFI
    2. Go to the playstore and find YouTube
    3. Click on the "update" button, BUT STOP it while it is downloading, i.e. before the update is installed.
    4. Go back into TeMeFI and detach YouTube USING METHOD 3
    Method 3 is a pretty robust detachment process. If You have it detached using Method 3, I think the playstore will soil itself if you try to manually update YouTube.

    The use of ONLY Method 3 for YouTube has been documented many MANY times in the thread, so a simple read would of averted the issue.

    I'm rooted, do you mind share the TB method to detach? Thanks
    Titanium backup is incredibly outdated and 90% of the features no longer work.
    For best detaching results use this app

    New version of YouTube Vanced (16.02.35) with new version of MicroG (0.2.18. 210390), not working. I can't sing in to my accounts.
    Perhaps you don't have a great singing voice? ^_^

    You'll have to give us some more information though. Which steps did you follow? Did you respect the order of installation (MicroG first)? Using Vanced Manager?

    Jokes aside. v16 has had this issue of users not being able to sign in. Downgrading to 15.x solves the issue.
    Ah yes but the manager knows and guides the user through this; it's truly genius. Absolutely amazing how far a "silly" Xposed mod fork has come.

    It is there in settings. Check it properly.
    You could also just help someone if you know the answer. 🤷‍♂️
    The function to share videos WITH STARTING TIMESTAMP seems to have disappeared? It would be great if it could be added back in, maybe even as default.

    Thanks for an otherwise awesome app!
    These settings are a maze huh 😬
    If you haven't found it yet or if anyone else needs it, it can be found under Vanced settings > Misc > Copy link (with timestamp)

    Screenshot_20210418-003116~2.jpg
    Enabling that turns on this button:
    Screenshot_20210418-003516~2.jpg
    It's super easy to enable, barely an inconvenience. I'm guessing this isn't even available to "normal" YT? Vanced features are TIGHT!

    Since YouTube v14.41.52, Google has moved to split APKs. The Android package installer doesn't support split apks yet, so we are using SAI as an Alternative apk installer.

    Installation Instructions:

    Non-Root:
    Steps:
    1. Download and Install microG Vanced (If you don't install microG, YouTube will crash on starup)
    2. Download latest version of YouTube Vanced
    3. Install Split APKs Installer (SAI) from Google Playstore
    4. Open Split APKs Installer (SAI) -> Install APKs -> Select the downloaded Vanced apks -> Install
    5. Done! Enjoy!

    For MIUI users, follow these instructions -> How to install v15 on MIUI

    Root:

    Since YouTube v14.41.52 Google has moved to the new APK Signature Scheme v3 and because of that it's impossible to mod system apps without disabling the android's system wide signature verification.

    THIS IS HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT DO THIS UNTLESS YOU DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT SECURITY.

    Steps:
    1. Disable apk signature verification. (Don't ask us how to do it. we don't recommend doing it)
    2. Download latest version of YouTube Vanced
    3. Install Split APKs Installer (SAI) from Google Playstore
    4. Open Split APKs Installer (SAI) -> Install APKs -> Select the downloaded Vanced apks -> Install
    5. Done! Enjoy!

    Magisk:

    As we are disabling signature verfication, root version are installed to /data/app and /system/app. So magisk module is useless now and makes nonsense to us.
    Therefore, Magisk version is discontinued.


    Known bugs:
    1. What bugs? Never heard of them. :D
    2. Buying things within the nonroot version of the app causes crash. Likely due to MicroG but tbh, it's better this way for your security. Just use original youtube to buy the stuff you want.
    3. Ok, not really a bug but since people don't read it's experimental, ExoPlayer V2 might be causing crashes when coming back from background playback on some devices.
    4. Non-Root stuck on I Agree Page? -> https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79419977&postcount=9772

    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 vaque (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?

    F.A.Q

    Q.Where did the normal(white) apk go??
    A.White is included in both versions choose the alternate theme you prefer for night time etc.

    Q. How to install updates ?
    A. Just download the latest apk and install as you previously did before.

    Q. Do I need to re-install detach script for every new YouTube Vanced update ?
    A. No!

    Q. Can I install this as I normally install any other apk ?
    A. Only the non root version.

    Q. Can I download videos with this ?
    A. No (and you never will)! but the official YouTube Offline Video feature is working in Supported countries.

    Q. Why is <xyz> variant not available to download ?
    A. We release 2 Unified builds of non root, one with the stock youtube theme and another with an amoled friendly theme. 8 root apks are provided, all of which are nodpi variants as google has become very aggressive in pushing updates that the only way to avoid it is using some form of detaching.

    Q. Installation successful but YouTube is not showing up in launcher, why ?
    A. You did not use the latest magisk version or installer. This only applied for Oreo.

    Q. Does 'Crop to fit' feature work for S8 and S8+ users ?
    A. Yes! It works on the rooted version but not in the non-root since the package name is changed. However, there is an alternative new Pinch to Zoom feature with basically the same functionality.

    Q. Is history working ?
    A. Yes! Make sure you whitelist *s.youtube.com in your adblocker. And non-root users need to check that they are not using a brand account due to MicroG bug. If you are, you need to merge the accounts to get the history working (YouTube Settings) Merging process will clean the current history.

    Q. Does PIP mode works ?
    A. Yes on Oreo Only!

    Q. When will you release the new version ?
    A. Usually within a couple of days after the official apk is available in apkmirror. But please don't ask for ETA!

    Q. Does background playback download video ?
    A. No, it does not. After going into background playback, you will only download audio so there will be much less data usage.

    Q. I can't login on Non-Root, I get stuck on the I agree page. What to do?
    A. For time being, use this workaround here.
