Android apps and more (WIP) stuff

YTD v6.6.2

Hello, due to another recent change at YouTube, a patch was needed.

 v6.6.2 - Gen 19 2019
-----------------------------------
[x] encrypted signature patch (18)
[x] some updated translations

Note: it seems that age restricted videos (that normally would require the login to be viewed) are no more working properly (…it means they will not download).

Here is the direct Apk download link always pointing to the latest version of the app.

For more info and support there’s also the Telegram group.

YTD v6.6 Beta 1

Hello! It was time to cleanup some part of the app, so I revised a few things that were not working as they should. I hope I’ve been able to fix everything, as noted in the changelog below; anyway, being more than a few part of the app that changed, I’m releasing this version as a Beta.

 v6.6 Beta 1 - Nov 19 2018
-----------------------------------
[x] revised update routines, including:
    - fix downloads below Lollipop
    - fix installations above Oreo
[x] do not scan intermediate m4a files into the media library
[x] fix duplicated mp3 image tags into the media library
[x] add the 320k mp3 encoding option
[x] fix notification settings in API above Marshmallow

Direct download link for this build: [v6.6 beta 1][link removed – old beta]

Let me know in the comments below or in the Telegram chat what do you think and if anything is wrong. Also, if you don’t mind, go take a look at the translation platform at GetLocalization: there are a few new strings that need some love :)

PS: Due to a bug (fixed in this Beta), if you have Android Oreo, will be not possible to install this version via the app itself: clicking on the notification or in the information dialog will have no effect. You have to navigate in your device’s Download folder and install the apk manually

PS_2: To test the update routine, obviously, another newer version is needed. Will be out soon enough.

Thanks, Bye!

YTD v6.5

Hi. Double changelog this time!

 v6.5 - Nov 08 2018
-----------------------------------
[x] encrypted signature patch (17)
[x] fix copy/move/import files for external sdcard for API 26+
[x] add private external sdcard dir for download
    (WARNING: this folder will be deleted upon app's uninstall)
[x] do not send logcat if not on the latest version
[x] some updated translations

 v6.4 - Sep 07 2018
-----------------------------------
[x] filename fix for the "send via SSH" feature (thanks @RobinTPotter)
[x] send also 1080p and 480p downloads via SSH
[x] support for AV1/MP4 VO streams (download only; MUX not supported by FFmpeg)

Please take the time to read these two notes, especially the one in bold:

  • On KitKat and above, it’s possible to use the external (removable) sdcard as download destination, but that’s one caveat: only the app’s private folder will be available.
    IMPORTANT note: this folder will be deleted by the system (with all your downloads) if you uninstall the app. For the moment it’s not possible to choose a different directory on external/removable sdcards.
  • On Oreo and above, it seems that the notification preference (from the app’s own settings) has no effect: no matter what, the device will always ring with a notification sound upon app’s completed jobs (unless you disable all notifications from this app, from android system settings).

This release includes some minor changes from v6.4, that has been available only on Telegram:

YTD v6.2

Hello, this is new version addressing a problem that recently appeared when finding the available download formats for certain videos. Until now, it was available via Telegram and the XDA forum only… It was about time to push a proper release.

There are also updated translations for Spanish and Vietnamese (and a slight revision of the app’s icon: for API below 26, I’m using an icon very similar to the old one, without a fixed background).

Changelog:

 v6.2 - Sep 04 2018
-----------------------------------
[x] fix for some random network errors
[x] updated translations (thanks NightOwlEyes and protheusdk)

As always, this link will point to the latest build, for direct download and install.
