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:

Announcements channel (Announcements channel)

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.

YTD v6.0

Final version from the latest beta series… With its version number bumped to 6.0. Anyone, also who doesn’t have the beta upgrades enabled into settings, will be able to upgrade.

Note: There’s a small caveat for Android Oreo’s users: if upgrading from the latest stable version 5.4.1, the app will crash trying to install the newly downloaded package (I forgot to modify the method I use, in accordance to Oreo’s requirements). Not a big deal: just open the system Downloads app, click on the new YouTube Downloader apk and install right away.

This is the changelog – same stuff from the recent beta versions:

 v6.0 - Apr 18 2018
-----------------------------------
[x] support for age restricted videos
[x] support for HDR videos
[x] get rid of underscores in filenames
[x] don't show advertising links in search
[x] fixed notifications for android O+
[x] adaptive icon for android O+
[x] language change now works also for android N+
[x] drop support for android ICS (API 14/15)
[x] many translations updated (thanks XDA folks!)
[x] Telegram channel link into Social menu
[x] can change also album art when editing ID3 tags
[x] various maintenance fixes
[x] libraries updated

As always, this link will point to the latest build, for direct download and install (again, if you have Oreo, use this method to upgrade).

YTD v5.5 Beta 5

Hi, with this beta there’s a small (but essential) improvement for the age restricted video support; thanks again to the beta tester akmsr @XDA, who spotted the bug, now file names for downloads are properly set (there was the case where an age restricted video, if shared from YouTube, was getting the name of a previously downloaded “normal” video).

The update will be available from the app’s settings.
You can also download the apk from here: v5.5 beta 5[link removed – old beta]

Hello, new beta available with a fix regarding subsequent operations with FFmpeg: due to a modification in android Nougat, an mp3 extraction or a mux operation was failing on Nougat if the first one was long enough. Thanks to akmsr @XDA for the heads-up!
