NewPipe: A free lightweight Youtube frontend for Android.


NewPipe does not use any Google framework libraries, or the YouTube API. It only parses the website in order to gain the information it needs. Therefore this app can be used on devices without Google Services installed. Also, you don't need a YouTube account to use NewPipe, and it's FLOSS.

Multiservice support

Although NewPipe only supports YouTube at the moment, it's designed to support many more streaming services. The plan is, that NewPipe will get such support by the version 2.0.

the three-point menu does not appear when you watch a video with the light theme on #996
