I tried also with install via USB activated,but only with miui optimization turned off, should I try again with miui optimization turned on?
I would like to let you know that I uninstalled original youtube via adb, the first time I forgot to clear all updates, si when I tried to install YT vanced it didn't work because it said that I was trying to downgrade, then I had to reinstall the original YT via adb and revert all the updates and then unistall it again via adb. Now When I try to install vanced it doesn't give me the error of downgrade but it gets stuck in this installation loop
Generally, Install via USB should work on Xiaomi phones better than Disable MIUI optimizations (besides, switching MIUI optimizations On and Off produces unwanted problems with other installed apps)

Make sure you start with no YT or with any version lower than v16.20.35 (that version of the latest YT Vanced)

E.g., if you have the built-in YT (stock app on the System), version older than v16.20.35, then leave that older version but remove all updates (Settings, Apps)

If you don't have the pre-installed YT app on System, then uninstall YT (as the User app) from Settings, Apps

That way try to install YTV root from Vanced Manager or alternatively as a Magisk module:
Thanks to your YT Vanced root Magisk module installation - it is easier to enable/disable Vanced root, etc

Just updated my YT Vanced root to v16.20.35:
- disabled the previous v16.16.38 module and rebooted
- updated YT app to v16.20.35
- replaced Vanced base.apk in v16.16.38 module with the Vanced base.apk (dark mode) for v16.20.35
- flashed and enabled the modified module

Attached:

1) YouTube-16_20_35.zip
To install or update YT app to v16.20.35 (Vanced root YT must be disabled or uninstalled).
Unzip, then install by adb command from PC:
adb install-multiple base.apk split_config.arm64_v8a.apk split_config.en.apk split_config.xxxhdpi.apk
(only for arm64 and English- otherwise install YT v16.20.35 as split/bundle from ApkMirror - on Google Play there is already a newer v16.22.35; apk files must be in the adb folder on PC)

2) YouTube-Vanced-16.20.35-Dark_Magisk.zip
Magisk module updated to YTV v16.20.35

Hi everyone,

I have discovered something about this app.

Telcos here in my country are offering several data plans that have data allocation for YT only.

Example:

For $2, I can avail 8gb data open to all web, plus Unli Call/Text, and 8gb data allocation for YT good for 7 days.

I have discovered that when I'm using YT Vanced, it uses actually the regular data not the data intended for YT. I hope you get my point. I suggest devs would do some working around about this. Dont get me wrong, I am not demanding. I am just raising my findings for this app.

Unfortunately,activating install via usb doesn't work either, do you recommend to reinstall YouTube via adb and then keep it by unistalling all the updates and try to install it again?

Still don't know exactly what is the problem on your phone

However, to install YT Vanced root (no matter how many times you install/uninstall in advance), you must install it as bundle/split app!!!

To install any bundle/split app to MIUI, it is needed to have Install via USB enabled (although some instruct that disabled MIUI optimizations is needed) - that's what I'm saying all the time

Are you able to install YouTube v16.20.35 by using adb install-multiple from my post?

Alternatively, go to www.apkmirror.com, search for YouTube v16 20.35, the split/bundle version, download and use ApkMirror Installer (find the instructiions on their pages):

Once you succeed to install the YT v16.20.35 as a bundle/split app (and for that, as I'm saying you need to have Install via USB enabled but you can try and/or with MIUI optimizations Off), then I can give you further instructions how to manually finish the installation of YT Vamced root v16.20.35

But first confirn that you installed the YT v16.20.35, and please provide a screenshot from the /data/app installation folder as mine attached below

However, if you cannot install the official YT v16.20.35 (as a bundle/split app) then sorry, I can't help further

Why it must be YT v16.20.35 installed as split/bundle applucation - simply because Vanced root (no matter how you install, through Vanced Manager, manually or as a module) replaces only one (base.apk) from the bundle of the official YT apk files.
If you have any other version of YT, it will not work because the latest Vanced base.apk was made by making changes into the official v16.20.35 base.apk from YT.
If you install YT as a singular app, then Vanced base.apk cannot replace anything - similarly if you cannot install YT v16 20.35 at all

You can try with older Vanced root versions (but it won't help if you generally have problems installing the bundle/split YT app to your phone), or you can choose instead the non-root YT Vanced (coming with MicroG) - it comes as a separate, stand-alone application, that can be installed to your phone in parallel to the official YT

I was going through the known issues in vanced version 16.20.35. The last line in the image shared here says :

Swipe down to refresh (it's a litho bug)
What does it mean? (litho bug)

And a request to developers to please fix this refresh bug, it is annoying to say the least.

For those who are fine with static ads on home screen, the temporary fix for the refresh bug is to disable
"General Layout ad removal option"

On non root version this temporary solution is working fine for me for over a month now. Should work on root version also but not sure.

Thank you 🙏

Honestly I solved this by installing back the original youtube systema app via adb, I cleared cache and dat and uninstalled all updates, then I run vanced manager with MIUI optimization enabled and install via USB enabled, then the installation process went ok and simply replaced the YT original app

Probably important here - are you talking about the root or non-root Vanced YT

That`s the solution. We should not remove original youtube and youtube music before using vanced manger. Device is rooted.
Thank you!

Yes, basically removing youtube via adb prevented vanced manager from completing the installation process,and good news you don't need to turn off the miui optimization

Known bugs:
<SNIP>
  • As of v16.16.38, casting won't work due to an upstream microG bug.

I am guessing that is your problem.
I really need to get another Android TV box to test with.
Mine did not survive a power surge a few months ago.🙃


Cheers. :cowboy:
Even though the changelog blames it on microG, can you explain why the same microG version doesn't cause that problem with Vanced YouTube v15.43.32?

Doesn't this mean that the bug is actually with the latest version of YouTube app and not microG?

Precisely, but no news about when it is going to be fixed ? It's been a long time now. Someone said before to use an older version of Vanced, but you mention that I also have to use an old version of MicroG? Which one ?

My phone gets extremely hot even if I put the app to sleep.
I'm using Vanced YouTube v15.43.32 and microG v0.2.18.210500 and there are no problems whatsoever. Everything works, including casting.

Version 16.x was causing excessive battery drain and heating on my device, so had to revert Vanced YouTube to an older build.

Sorry I'm late for this release guys. Recently closed on a house, and unfortunately not everything went quite according to plan. But overall worked out, so no worries. =)

I see @zgfg already uploaded a Magisk installer, but I figured I would post this anyway. For the sake of completion, and to keep the "index" going from my original Magisk release post.

***Magisk Files for YT Vanced v16.20.35***

For more background info, and installation / troubleshooting info, see this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=83741225&postcount=17198

YouTube 16.20.35 .APKS / YouTube Vanced 16.20.35 Magisk Modules:
YouTube-Vanced-16.20.35-Dark_Magisk.zip: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=14943124697586350411
YouTube-Vanced-16.20.35-Black_Magisk.zip: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=14943124697586350409
Stock YouTube 16.20.35 APKS (.zip file): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=14943124697586350419
(sorry, AFH doesn't allow uploads of .apks files, so I zipped up the stock apks file before uploading)

note: btw the module id tags are the same in each module, so you can easily switch between dark and black by simply flashing the other module and rebooting.

-------------------------------------------------

* For some reason, on my older devices (Nougat), from an existing Magisk install, I can simply install the new APKS, then flash the new module with the new version and reboot, and the app works perfectly. Basically just a simple "upgrade" with all settings intact.

* But then I've noticed on my newer devices (Pie, Q, and R), doing that exact same procedure will cause the app to force close after rebooting, making it necessary to follow the steps I outlined in my previous post that I linked at the top of this post. Not really a huge deal, just annoying and need to redo the settings and preferences. However, it does seem to update properly without issues by simply adding just one additional step before the upgrade - disabling or deleting the old Magisk module first and rebooting, then updating.

****************
So basically, probably the safest steps to update from my previous module versions would be:
- Disable or delete my old Magisk module. REBOOT.
- Install new version APKS via SAI.
- Flash my new version Magisk module. REBOOT.
And like usual, from here you can change between dark and black theme by just flashing the other and rebooting.
****************


I think it may have something to do with the way the newer SDK levels handle split APK installs. I think perhaps having the Magisk module enabled when updating YouTube causes some components to be unable to fully install - but only on newer versions of Android. Ultimately, my older devices can skip the one added step of removing my old Magisk modules before updating, but in either case it wouldn't hurt to go with the steps I outlined above - it's more of a failsafe method that works in both scenarios.


---------------------------------------------------
Here are the custom YouTube Vanced app logos, for those where it's not showing up for some reason. Use these if your launcher allows changing app icons:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=319601
---------------------------------------------------

...and finally as usual, the biggest thanks of all is reserved to the entire Vanced development team! Thanks for continuing the work on this project!

I am not that familiar with microG.
I only install the vanced microG version when needed. ;)

Since the casting error normally wants you to update Google services for casting to work...

I would venture to guess that there was a change in Google services that microG has not updated or implement the change properly yet.

Newer versions of YouTube would be utilizing the change in Google services.
An older version would not require the updated change in Google's services.

Wish I had a better answer for you. 🙃

Cheers. :cowboy:

PS.
I normally use the root version.
I test the non-root version when I can.

QUESTION: Is there a setting somewhere that achieves ”OPEN ALL YOUTUBE LINKS IN YOUTUBE VANCED " ?

When I use voice search on my phone and get Google results, tapping on a YouTube video result will open that video in YouTube. I'm trying to see if there's a way to automatically open such search results in YouTube Vanced?

You can go and remove the default settings via system yt settings. Then next time you will be able to choose ytv.

    Looks like the Vanced Guide was pulled from PlayStore.
    I do not know if it was Team Vanced or Google.

    Vanced Guide - PlayStore - Link
    You can find the page on web.archive.org - Link

    At the end of MIUI instructions (link from the OP).

    Cast on TV is not working. I have searched for troubleshooting the issue but could not find any.. everytime says:

    Youtube vanced won't run unless you update Google Play Services.

    My devices:
    Samsung Note10+
    Galaxy A50, A7
    Everything is up to date including Google Play Services.

    Please let me know the solution 🙁
    I don't know the solution, since I don't cast, but I know it has been discussed here OFTEN that casting does not work, at least in later versions.

    Can I use the oldest version of vanced and microg? I'm using an outdated android box and it can't run the latest version of vanced without crashing, freezing, I was using an older version and it was working OK, since I upgraded everything got messed up.

    How far could I downgrade? any suggestions?
    If you uninstall them and use Vanced Manager to install, it should give you a choice of available versions. I don't have any particular issues with the latest version, but recommendations have been made in this thread regarding prior versions that don't have specific issues.

    Can confirm, it's definitely more laggy and has stronger appetite now
    Hey vanced has been consuming more power then normal YouTube app has anyone noticed that
    Please be aware that there are root and non-root YT version (you should have seen that when installing), with different architecture.
    Comments without specifying what do you talk about are pretty much useless.
    Also, if non-root version consumpts too much power, take attention does the app consumpts or MicroG.
    Btw, it's already observed and commented, take time to read the thread back and/or use search

    (Resolved) - [New behavior observed - Automatic inplace video play]

    I am running non-root Vanced app v16.20.35 on Android 11 on my smartphone.

    Since yesterday I have noticed a new behavior in the app and that is it automatically starts playing the video inplace. Once the video is finished the screen is automatically refreshed and the top most video on the screen starts playing inplace. Kindly see the attached image and the circled part. That equalizer type graphics was not there earlier. Also the video time now goes to zero.

    Does anyone know is this something youtube introduced recently. Do note that the feature may be experimental and may not be available everywhere. I do not have YouTube app on my smartphone (disabled) to test it on my own.

    When you open the app for the first time, everything is fine. As soon as you touch the screen for scrolling or anything else then usually the middle video (sometimes it is topmost video, I guess it depends on the focus) automatically starts playing inplace. I could not find any new setting to control it.

    The current way to stop it when the video starts playing inplace, then click it. It opens up like it used to do. Then stop it and minimize it if you want to browse/scroll the videos above or below this video on the page you are coming from. Or scroll down the see the videos available on the current page. Now the videos will not play inplace.

    Please do let me know if you need more information.
    The issue is resolved now. I have found the setting to stop this inplace video play.

    The setting is present in YouTube settings>General>muted playback on home and feeds

    For some reasons I have set this option to "always on" and forgotten about it and hence video was being played without sound automatically.

    Thanks 🙏

    Anyone know why when I reboot the YouTube vanced icons for YouTube are replaced by the stock icon? After a few hours on on time the YouTube vanced music app did the same as well. They didn't update because they are still the vanced versions but the icons won't stay as they are.
    This is issue is mentioned in Troubleshooting in the Telegram-group. See https://telegra.ph/Troubleshooting-for-vanced-03-19

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

    YouTube Vanced

    SrSEsV2.png

    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:


    • YouTube Vanced IS NOT YouTube Premium
    • 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 (Android 8.0+)
    • Video window new or old style
    • Repeat video feature
    • Preferred Resolution & Speed feature
    • Swipe controls for Volume and Brightness
    • Sponsorblock integration
    • Tap to seek feature
    • Copy video link + with timestamps feature
    • New Logo by @Logan



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

    Downloads:

    If your network is down or the website isn't loading, you can download vanced manager from the GitHub page.

    Alternative Mirrors for Older versions below v14.x releases:

    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:

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:


    Especially for MIUI, there's a separate guide that can be accessed using this link.

    For Non-Root:
    1. Download and install the latest Vanced Manager using our official Vanced website.
    2. Open Vanced Manager and tap the blue arrow in the lower right corner.
    3. Begin installing Vanced microG. (This app is mandatory to install if you want to login with your Google account)
    4. Then install YouTube Vanced (or YouTube Music Vanced), log in to your account and enjoy!
    For Root:
    1. Download and install the latest Vanced Manager using our official Vanced website.​
    2. Open Vanced manager and tap on the "Magisk" icon to grant root permissions.​
    3. Once you are in, begin installing YouTube Vanced (or YouTube Music Vanced).​

    Important information:


    • Disabling "APK signature verification," which was previously required, is no longer needed.
    • The magisk version has been discontinued and removed from the magisk repository since Google has switched to Split APKs format. 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.


    Known bugs:


    • Purchasing items in the non-root version of the app causes the app to crash. It's most likely due to MicroG. However, for greater security, it is preferable to use the original YouTube app.
    • 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.
    • As of v16.16.38, casting won't work due to an upstream microG bug.
    • On portrait/vertical videos, preferred quality options do not work.



    Installation guide for old versions:



    Non-Root:



    1. Download and install the Vanced microG using the latest Vanced manager
    2. Download the necessary Vanced APK file using the old versions link above.
    3. Install the APK like you would for any other app.


    Root:


    1. Download the official TWRP installer found in the downloads above
    2. Download the suitable APK of the theme you want for your device (check your architecture using an app such as CPU-Z)
    3. Place the downloaded APK into a separate new folder with the TWRP installer zip you downloaded or inside the installer zip
    4. Uninstall all YouTube updates and disable auto-update in the play store (If you can completely uninstall the youtube application)
    5. Flash the installer in TWRP
    6. Profit!


    Magisk:



    There are a total of 2 ways to install the magisk version.
    • The first and most effective way is to install it via the Magisk app. Since we have discontinued the Magisk version and removed it from the magisk repository, you can get the last available magisk version using this link.
    • The second way is to place "Install via magisk.plz" alongside the official installer zip or enable magisk install in the settings.sh and flash via the magisk app.
    Note: Make sure you have uninstalled the stock YouTube app or at least uninstalled its updates below v14.21.54. A newer version will override the vanced installation, preventing you from seeing vanced in your app drawer.



    Explanation of the (Ad)Vanced options of the official installer:


    Vanced makes use of both 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!)

    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?

    F.A.Q:


    Q.Where did the normal(white) apk go??
    A. White is included in both versions by default as a primary theme. Simply choose the alternate theme you prefer for the night time then use it accordingly with your system theme.

    Q. How to install updates?
    A. When using vanced manager, simply tap on the "update" button to begin updating your vanced. If you are installing an older version, just download the latest apk and install it 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 the <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. Use the latest vanced manager and choose the theme and language you would like to install.

    Q. Installation successful but YouTube is not showing up in launcher, why?
    A. If you are facing this issue that means you are not using vanced manager. Please use vanced manager to install vanced applications. If you are installing old versions of root variants, make sure the stock youtube app is uninstalled or at least you uninstalled its updates.

    Q. Does the '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 ad blocker. And non-root users need to check that they are not using a brand account due to the MicroG bug. If you are, you need to merge the accounts to get the history working (YouTube Settings). The merging process will clean the current history.

    Q. Does PIP mode works?
    A. Yes, from Android 8.0+ 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 log in on Non-Root, I get stuck on the I agree page. What to do?
    A. If you are facing this issue, that means you are using older versions of vanced microG. Please update to the latest version using the latest vanced manager which can be downloaded via our official website. Links can be found in the first post.

    New site up https://vanced.azurewebsites.net/ with latest version of YouTube as base (13.10). Includes some bugfixes and other changes detailed on discord. At the time of writing this post apkmirror lacks apks for arm so you will have to wait a while until it has them and then we will be able to make arm root builds.
