Description:

Plasmoid for viewing youtube videos on your desktop.
You should have google account to use this plasmoid.

Features:
* playing youtube video :)
* searching video, channels and playlist
* diffirent presets for diffirent activities even for docked in a panel plasmoid
* presets editing and sorting (settings -> youtube channels -> click and hold, than drag)
* number of videos for channels/playlists in search results
* pin to stay "always on top" when docked in a panel
* drag and drop youtube links to view them
* play list of video non-stop (stop at the last video)

How to use
* Add widget -> Setting -> Google Account -> do some magic -> enjoy! :)

Roadmap (when I`ll have time for a new release in future):
* a way to copy/share video url
* "recommended" videos from youtube
* preferred languge for search

Troubleshooting
* If you see the message "Your browser doesn't support any video format", but everything is working in your favorite Firefox/Chromium, please test in in Konqueror. Firefox/Chromium doesn't use qt-webkit, but Konqueror (and Plasmatube) does. So, if you are missing some configuration/modules in you Qt, Firefox/Chromium still could be able to play video. Search in Google "Konqueror html5 video %your-distro-name%" to find more detailed information about what you should do with it.
* If you see a message like "missing Qt module", "private is not supported" or "module not found", that means you have outdated version of Qt, or you don't have some qt-modules installed. Please, update your system and install all needed modules.

Don`t hesitate to leave your comments/feedback about usability/features.

For the docked plasmatube, is possible add a pin button to always keep its window open ?

Hi.... Actually there is a pin button for this, it's in bottom right corner of window, when search panel is active. Should I move it to some other place? (where? I didn't find a better one, but I'm not a good designer :)

Ciaoo
the fact is that I can not find it anywhere
... I think I have installed the current version ... but I'm not sure ... in any case, from the form relating to the download of plasmoids under "plasmatube" it is not offered to me any option "update"

I added new screenshot (last one). Please check, if you have the same pin icon, as I have on screenshot in the bottom right corner.

Hint: It's not blue if it's not active. :)

...my browser cuts the screenshot slightly, however, I managed to see that blue button and can confirm,
that on my system, I can not see that control

Probably, it would be useful if somewhere, there was a button, to place an "About dialog" to show things like version, license and Authors

Yeah, maybe it's a good idea.
Can you confirm that you have an option "Pinned by default" in settings? If you don't have one, I'm afraid you have an old version.

As I suspected, the version I was using was not the current, despite, that I have clicked on the "update plasmatube" from the widget explorer ..now, it works wonders

Hi zanturik

Now, I can set presets for "Chabel" and "Previews"
...but how do I store a simple video like a bookmark?
...this would be very very useful

Is it possible to insert an option to disable previews, that youtube offers on the background of the display?



thank

Congratulations for the excellent work that you have done !!!

I consider PlasmaTube really handy to keep handy, playlists broken down by activity ...

I allow myself to suggest something if possible ...

it would be very convenient to keep in the same view of the presets, three distinct groups of presets es.

Playlists TopRated MostRecent

and maybe have the possibility to delete presets (playlists) directly from this page

Ciaoo Zanturikand thank you very much

Hi. Plasmatube window shows me this message "Your browser does not recognize any of the video formats available". I have Firefox Falkon and Konqueror and all of them normally reproduce YouTube videos. My distro is Kubuntu 18.04 with KDE 5.13. What can I do to fix Plasmatube on my laptop?

Did you add some channels before? Try to search comething, than right click on "channel" or "playlist" and click "add".

Check the third screenshot to see the example.

Unfortunately does not work. "Your browser does not recognize any of the video formats available".
The browser plays YouTube video without any problems.

Please, test if your Konqueror can play YouTube video. Firefox/Chromium doesn't use qt-webkit, but Konqueror (and Plasmatube) does. So, if you are missing some configuration/modules in you Qt, Firefox/Chromium still could be able to play video.

PS: I've added "Troubleshooting" section in a description, hope it would help someone in future :)

Hey, I have a some sort of problem... so I've already installed de widget, and also synced my account... but it shows an error on the youtube player: "Your browser does not recognize any of the video formats available"... do I need to install anything else? I'm running on Arch btw... :l

well, your system should be capable of playing video, that's for sure. I'm not familiar with Arch, so I can't tell you what exactly you should do, but you can open konqueror and try to play some youtube video or try to search related issues for Arch.

It would be great if the plasmoid had a drag and drop function to place youtube links from other applications directly on it, or perhaps, although this would be a more complicated task, an entry to open the YouTube links by default with this plasmoid , although I think that for very obvious reasons that is not possible.

Yeah, I'm afraid "open links" feature is impossible for now, but It's a good idea to receive links by drag and drop action. I'll think about it, thank you :)
