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* If you see a message like "missing Qt module", "private is not supported" or "module not found", that means you have outdated version of Qt, or you don't have some qt-modules installed.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.

Amazing I did not thought That you could !! you are great ;)

- What happens if you upgrade your plasmatube ... will preserved the preset buttons settings ? ... There is the possibility of preserving the google account? although actually the method you use to authenticate in google is very convenient and smart

- To have the chance to see a new playlist, it would be nice to add a "back" button to exit from playlist/channel, and then, back on the search previews

- Do you know to the youtube-dl script? I found it in the official opsnSUSE's repository and is fantastic allows you to download entire playlist by passing the URL, well it would be nice to add it somewhere in the main window or in other place
 
- When you change from one activity to another, the search key used in the previous activity, remains stored in the search field, then should clean up the search fild and exit from preset buttons view

- There is the possibility to add a button "maximize" to improve readability in the video with text or open the video in the browser?

- Add the search options in the settings module as sort by leanguage and other

- It would be useful to show the number of videos alongside the written channel/playlist in the thumbnail video preview

- In older versions, you supplied it, a set of preset pre configured buttons, well, now you could create several preset buttons groups to associate with the respective combo-box activities (user's activities list to load), only to facilitate understanding of the activities to those who did not use

- "Recommended" videos from youtube would be very comfortable but I would not know how to implement it I think it's difficult to reach the user preferences db

I must admit that this plasmoid I find it very useful and I love it so congratulations to the developer !!! here's a new idea, it is possible add the ability to configure different groups of preset buttons for each plasma activities? as preset buttons for "developement" activity and preset buttons for "social" and so on. Thank you very much, bye

Plasmatube 2.0 released, you can configure channels presets and, I believe, you can configure different presets for different activities, or for even different instance of widget at the same desktop. I didn`t test it hard, but it should work :)
