First of all, I like to make something clear about YTube. This is a heavily modified, perfected version of cuteTube python which were developed by Marxian. All credits still go to Marxian for developing this app in the first place. I am just a modifier, who had some spare time to optimize it and incorporate more features and gave it some resfresh Ui changes. I orginally just want to modify it fit my personal style and fix some bugs it has with youtube api v2. Since cuteTube python has been left behind due to developer decided to switch a QML version, I just want to make this changes available to public under a different name YTube. It's now available in extras-testing for those who want to use it (Install). It still have all orginal functions of cuteTube plus some additional functions to better user experiences. Again, all credits still go to orginal developer who made this app available to N900.

  • Added account functions options bar for easy access.
  • Added new menu button function in VideoInfo Screen to load Responses videos for a specific video.
  • Added video counts to playlist screen.
  • Simplified screen navigation, easy playlist and subscription access.
  • Comments can now be fetched up to maximum of 1000 entries.
  • New Logo on main screen.
  • Remove Videoplayback Quality setting Option( Mobile quality is no longer supported ).

v1-3:
  • Eliminate the long waiting black screen when start playing video.
  • Fixed comment screen items overlap bug.

v1-4:
  • New enhanced built-in video player Ui with additional scrollable playlist/related video thumbnail bar.
  • Added limited portrait video viewing capability using built-in Flash plugin.
  • Browse and play video at the same time in portrait mode.
  • Added recent search history list to bottom search toolbar.

v1-5:
  • Added ability to view and play other user's playlist in VideoInfo Window.
  • Fixed incorrect video duration display for video longer than 60 mins.
  • Fixed playlist name incorrectly displayed in non-english characters.
  • Fixed the slow buffering problem on high quality stream due to recently url redirection changes made by youtube.

Might be that Mr. Google doesn't like that in app is called Youtube - I mean, a non-official app. Also the use of the Youtube logo might be considered questionable...

Good modification and i actually prefer it over the Marxian QML version. The only thing i wish is you leave the "comment" and "related videos" in the same page like the QML version but i guess it can't be done since it's not a QML version.

The app's called YTube, not YouTube, but I agree the use of the logo might not be a good idea...

Nice to see someone taking up the Python version of CuteTube and improving it. Out of interest, did you discuss this or send patches to Marxian first? He might have wanted to update his version with your improvements.

Looks real great! Plays well as well, no hick ups or starting problems, but.. In my case I can'return to the beginning after playing a video. The 'backwards' button revokes the same video over and over... Someting I overlook or a bug?
