    The Tube

    A freeware minimalistic youtube browser based on youtube-dl and mplayer.

    01012019 - build 20
    - update youtube-dl, since menu update didn't work here; may need cleanup of appdata/thetube dir

    01012018 - build 19
    - update youtube-dl
    - allow use of mplayer from panplayer2,
    this improves tearing
    - change video player with m, saves last used
    - config of video player may need some fine tuning
    (for e.g. tv out)


    10082016 - build 18

    - update pafy, youtube_dl libs
    - pafy uses youtube_dl as backend now, startup and first playback may be slower

    03012016 - build 17

    - fix renewal of DNS info if started with network down
    - fix playback of playlist items

    Probably worth mentioning that to use this you need to codec pack installed to give you mplayer.

    comments nor channels are currently shown/supported - may add this later ..

    yup (I mention this now on the repo) - it should give a warning if you try to start without, though..

    Yes, it does do that. Thanks for adding the note to the repo too.

    Edit: Although you've got the URL slightly wrong there. Remove the 'portal/' and it works.

    Would you mind putting it on github ? It's more practical to collaborate there, I feel.

    Just testet it today but i get a blackscreen, but the Sound from the YouTube Video. .

    Could it be, the old Codec Pack whe got at the time, the first Batch was out is now outdatet?? Or is my internet to slow..

    The strange thing is, my only divecese where YouTube work are my old and my new Android Phone. .

    There hasn't been an update to the codec pack since it was released. Are you using the latest superZaxxon? Run the update OS utility lately?

    Well tried this out and it certainly plays nicer than trying to use youtube via flash. :)

    If you can get logging in sorted to list subcriptions then this would be awesome! :)
