Description:

Plasmoid for viewing youtube videos on your desktop.
You should have google account to use this plasmoid.
Current version 3.0.2

Features:
* playing youtube video :)
* searching video, channels and playlist
* presets editing and sorting (settings -> youtube channels -> click and hold, than drag)
* folders for different categories of video/playlists
* 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 language for search

Troubleshooting
* Version 2.8.2 is the latest version using minimum of dependencies. v3.0 requires qt-webview (qml-module-qtwebview for ubuntu) and qt-localstorage (qml-module-qtquick-localstorage for ubuntu) modules (name can differ for different OS). If you don't want (couldn't) install/use these dependencies, please use v2.8.2.
* 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* If you see a message like "missing Qt module", "private is not supported" or "module not found", that means you have outdated version of Qt, or you don't have some qt-modules installed.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.

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 :)

I have a fresh install of OpenSUSE Tumbleweed 20172222 with KDE Plasma version 5.11.4. I am trying to get Plasmatube to play, but it is giving me the Youtube error "An error has occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: fbXSFZnVVVln002F) Learn More". Is there another package I need to install? Thanks.

Beautiful Idea! But I had some difficoulty to close the widget. Please, can you add a setting to keep visible the lateral bar for dragging and closing porpouse? I want to ask you also If you are interested to add a setting to transform the video into a audio player for the desktop. Anyway, thanks! :)

Hi Zanturik, this is a great widget, but can you put a pin option? So we can watch videos while doing other things.

Any possibilities of plasmatube working in the panel

Report

Hi Zanturik

Your work is fantastic and now I can add a plasmatube for each activity with its dedicated preset buttons. Great !!!

- Now, I tried to place the plasmatube in a panel as a dock bar (the desktop is much more clean, functional and perhaps even less expensive in terms of memory usage), so in this case I would have only a plasmoid for all activities, but in this case is it posible change the preset buttons when i switch to another activity ? .
- Is possible to implement an advanced search for "language" and "upload date" ?
- It would be interesting and very confortable once you find the playlist (not in the setup form window), display its numbers of videos and than, by a simple right-click above the video preview, add it to the preset buttons, is it possible ? even though I realize that's not all what it seems easy to do it really is.
- It is also possible to implement the order of the preset buttons by dragging them or in some other way?
- It would be very nice to have the option to change the color of the preset buttons in dark theme
- Is there a way to add a button to export the playlist or video to the youtube-downloader scrip
t
Thank you very much, bye

Oh.... :) You have a lot of ideas, thats good, I like it. Will try to implement all these features, except colors. I think it`s not a good practice to set up colors in each individual application, so, new release follows the rules and uses current theme colors.

Thanks for your ideas and testing plasmatube :)

Hi Zanturik

When plasmatube is docked in the panel, it happens that, the preset buttons do not follow current activity, it would be really helpful since I intend to place it permanently in my dock panel, it can happen very often you need to switch from "Design" activitiy (presetbuttons: "tutorial gimp" "Inkscape tutorial" "tutorial Blender") to a new activity "Developement" and then, finding all the preset buttons adapted to the new activity (presetbuttons:"Python tutorial" "tutorial C ++" "Java tutorial"). I am convinced that Ivan Cukic the developer who brought forward the development of activities in kde would be very happy
* Font / button colors now taken from the current theme
    ok it works well
* Playlist / channels now back in search results showing the list of videos after clicking
    - Search on plasmatube
        It works very well
        In Youtube there is a session that refers to the suggested videos based on the user preferences, well, it might be interesting to have a set of suggested videos instead that by user preferences, even in this case, based on type of current activitiy, but do not know if you can do it
        And have the ability to add presetbutton from here would be the top
    - Search on plasmatube setting form
        I can only add presetbuttons for channels but not for playlists and usually those looking for something on the tube mainly seeks playlist.
        If I search for "python" in the plasmatube setting form get far fewer results than the same research carried out on youtube (channel field) and in any case Mmmh is not comfortable at all because there is not the possibility to have a preview of the video !!. Probably the best solution would be to do all this from plasmatube perhaps with a search field to the playlist and one for channels and thus add redsults as presetbuttons from here by a right clck on the plasmatube's top-video previews panel
* Number of videos in settings
        It works very well

Hello,
Version 2.2 just released, I tried to implement almost all the features you wanted, so you are welcome to test it :)
Language preferences, sharing link/button and recommended videos are in the roadmap, will try to implement it in future releases.

Here I am, I'm your torment :)

- I noticed that, only playlists and channels can be added as a presetbutton, perhaps to avoid adding the single video of a playlist, well about the single video researched, I think is correct to have the opportunity to add it as a preset buttons while for the single video of a playlist, no

- Under certain conditions if I click on search, appears to me "press to switch back to the video list", and there's no way to exit out of the loop" perhaps, simply the search field remains hidden ;)

- With the plasmatube docked in the panel, sometimes, when I play a video, I can only hear the audio, the video remain in wait state while if I click on the plasmatube and then reopen it, the video returns to be displayed correctly

- Maybe the color of the "Add channel" label should take on a different color, often the white text is confused with the lyrics of minrature

- Is it appropriate to keep the video running when you move from one activity to another?

- It would be useful, view the video's position running a play list eg. something like ButtonPrev 5/38 buttonNext
