add integrated YouTube playback
...with support for background playback, so that I can listen to YouTube videos with the screen off. I see this was declined previously on the grounds that the YouTube app supported background playback, however this no longer seems to be the case unfortunately.
Please add add integrated YouTube playback.
Podsync.net does not work anymore... they write: "Hey everyone. Youtube has blocked all API keys that Podsync uses. I plan to shut it down on March 7. So if you haven't switched to CLI version, it's a good time to do so." https://twitter.com/pod_sync/status/1235738882651475970
When will Podcast Addict finally support the Playback of Youtube channels? Not even the videos (obviously), just the audio files? That's a really big feature that's missing here!
As for the TOS someone mentioned before...
Who the F*** cares? You can be certain that Youtube (Google) does NOT care about our privacy (etc. etc.), so why should we give a damn about their intrusive TOS? Seriously, if you read them you get the impression you are selling your soul. (tosdr dot org)
its unlikely this will be added, as background playback of Youtube violates its TOS and they've nuked apps from Google Play that do this
issue resolved thanks to PodSync, which is a service that makes youtube channels/playlists into podcasts
The app doesn't manage YT playback. The YT app is in charge of it, and only YT Red subscribers might be able to listen to a video in the background
@Xavier is it technically impossible to play just the audio portion of a youtube video in the Podcast Addict integrated player?
Currently I have to manually download each playlist with youtube-dl and copy it into my phone
You can only play YT content in the background if you're a YT Red subscribers, otherwise it's not authorized
Yes, I would like to have this. Cannot navigate elsewhere when listening to YouTube.
