NewPipe (Lightweight YouTube) v0.20.0 [Mod]
Overview: the lightweight YouTube experience for Android
Do you like watching videos on YouTube but looking for a simple app to do that?
NewPipe has been created with the purpose of getting the original YouTube experience on your smartphone without annoying ads and questionable permissions.
Lightweight YouTube frontend that’s supposed to be used without the proprietary YouTube-API or any of Google’s (proprietary) play-services. NewPipe only parses the YouTube website in order to gain the information it needs.
• YouTube Videos
Simple way to watch videos from the site and use its features.
• Extended Privacy
Does not use the YouTube API nor the Google Play Services.
• Background Player
Use other apps with no hassle while it plays your favourite songs.
• Download Media
Simply download YouTube videos or audio to your device.
Never miss new content from your favourite channels.
Go back in time and enjoy your favourites again.
• Open Source
How it works is not a secret. Go and check it on GitHub.
You get the whole thing for free. No in-app purchases or ads either.
New application workflow #2907, #4061, #4080, #4130, #4134, #4154, #4155 #4223, #4246, #4272, #4288, #4347, #4353, #4360, #4362 (thanks to @avently and all others involved)
Unified all three players into one for seamless switching between them – for example, now if you tap on background play while the video is playing in the main or popup player, the stream will start exactly where you left off, not from the beginning. This is true when you go from any of the 3 players to each other.
Play video directly in video details screen
Option to auto-play video upon opening video details screen (on by default)
Swipe down on video to minimize it and continue browsing uninterrupted (in landscape mode, you can swipe down on the title to do the same)
Full screen button smartly detects if video is portrait or landscape and behaves accordingly
Swipe up on full screen button in landscape mode to scroll down the video details
Now you get a neat looking progress bar below the thumbnail in the video details screen if you play it in the background or popup player.
Minimize players to background by default when switching app
The main player/minimized player retains your browsing history until you close it
