myTube 2.0 completely rebuilt with 1080p, 480p and 60 FPS for YouTube!

myTube becomes a universal YouTube app for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 with today's update

For those who enjoy YouTube on Windows Phone, one of the most popular third-party players just received a major update. Version 2.0 of myTube (now renamed to 'myTube!') is now available in the Store and ready for you to update.

Whenever an app hits the 2.0 marker, you can usually surmise that it has some significant improvements. This is the case with myTube 2.0, which has switched from Silverlight to the newer WinRT framework, matching the Windows 8.1 version. Additionally, there are many new features too, including support for 60 FPS and HD resolutions!

Read on for the full changes.

myTube! 2.0

  • Ability to play videos in 1080p, 480p and 60 FPS
  • Ability to download only the audio portion of a video to save space
  • Ability to save videos to the SD card if your Storage Sense settings allow it
  • Open videos from the browser in myTube using IE's share option (no need for the "Open in myTube" link, also works on non-YouTube pages that have YouTube videos embedded)
  • Support for signing into multiple YouTube accounts
  • Ability to view liked videos
  • Watch history now loads much faster
  • Videos start playing much faster
  • Ability to browse the app in landscape
  • Background downloads no longer have the file size or connection type limitations that were present in Windows Phone 8.0

Indeed, the new myTube feels noticeably faster in terms of performance due to the new WinRT framework. WinRT is often used for universal Windows and Windows Phone 8.1 apps (see Tweetium as another universal app example). Swiping in all directions is buttery smooth, and the app feels entirely different. Even tapping a video to play is near instantaneous.

Speaking of changes, technically myTube is now myTube! due to policies on the Store for 8.1 apps. Someone else took the myTube name in the Windows Store. Still, in our hearts we know there is only one true myTube.

The developer behind the app, Christopher Blackman, shared with us some more info about today's update, including some limitations:

"1080p videos are only available on phones with 720p+ screens. 60 FPS can be enabled in the settings, and is available on all phones, but may not be perfectly smooth on lower-end device such as the 520.""The "Open in myTube" favorites link is no longer needed as you can share videos to the app from the browser using IE's share button if you're on a YouTube page. It also works with embedded videos, so if you're reading a WPCentral article with YouTube videos embedded, sharing that article to the app would bring up a list of those videos to watch in the app or add to your watch later list.""Videos can be downloaded to the SD card if your Storage Sense settings are set to save new videos on the SD card. Videos and audio download in the background. There is a bug with WinRT's background downloader that may cause video files to be saved as empty files when saved on the SD card for some people. The workaround for this for now is setting the Storage Sense app to save videos on phone storage. I believe most people won't need to do this."

If you are upgrading from version 1.5 to 2.0, you need to re-login to your YouTube account. This requirement is a one-time issue due to the change in app framework. Unfortunately, the main app no longer has a Live Tile, however, users can still get their subscriptions on a live tile by pressing the pin button in the app bar on the subscriptions list.

Finally, if you have previously bought the Windows Phone version (free trial, 99 cents) you also now own the corresponding Windows 8.1 app. Both apps share 99% of the same code and UI, with an identical feature set. Blackman informs us that the Windows 8.1 version is "awaiting certification and will launch as soon as it's approved", so standby for that one.

For now, head to the Windows Phone Store and give myTube! 2.0 a spin and let us know what you think!

  • i'm a beta tester and i enjoyed using it, waiting for it on my VAIO
  • I'm a beta tester too but I had a problem updating the main app which I paid for it about 10 months ago I couldn't update the app so I decided to uninstall the app and install it back so after uninstalling the app its now giving me an error code (80004005) I even tried a restart and a soft reset a couple of times but nothing is working sadly ,I sent an email to the developer and waiting for a replay.
    at least I still have the beta version but I feel that I'm missing the fun part. anyone know how i can solve this error that I'm facing ? , thanks in advance.
    Update: Now i can install the full version again but i got the old 1.5 version and its not showing any updates i hope this gets fixed soon.
  • Same, can't install it now with the same error code. Reset, tried through windowsphone.com, etc all with no luck. Wish I wouldn't have deleted it to try to update it.
  • Owned since 6/2014. I'm experiencing the same problem, same error code.
  • @Medwynd : I just got the app back try to go to your store and search for it then hit install this worked for me but I got the old version (still better than nothing) which I cant update showing me an error just like before but the good part that I have the app :)
    After seeing that most of people can't update the app and use the awesome new app I think I'm lucky for being a part of the beta.
    Hope the store problem get solved very soon!
  • I got the same error too. I noticed the Store is behaving a bit weird lately. Some apps after just updated still have the Update button shown. When clicked nothing happened. :/
  • Lets just be patient and wait till MS fix this.
  • Also experiencing the same error. Hopefully they will fix it.
  • Error code 80004005 confirmed, I hope MS fix it in two days
  • Not working for me either. Neither the update nor the install from scratch after unistall-app and phone restart....
  • I am facing the same issue..
  • Try what I did. Go to an older link from a windows central mytube article. Go to store link from there. Only way I could get the app back.

  • Same here
  • I just want to drink the bath water of the girl on the graphic.
  • thank you mr. developer! I had this app for free but now I cant install it.. NO PROBLEM.. because of this issue I discovered TUBECAST and WOW! ITs better then this... so thank you mr. developer for opening my eyes
  • @pappale
    How was this issue the developers fault? It is clearly a MS Store issue. Tubecast is meh at best when I tried it.
  • The beta was amazing.
  • Sorry for hijacking your cmnt:P
    Update is no longer exist !
    Anyone know Why is it so?
    Edit : Available now :P
  • Wow we are spoiled for choice now!!!
  • Indeed! My progression went from metrotube -> mytube -> tubecast
  • same.
  • Ditto.
  • Same here! Interesting.
  • Ditto.
  • Sounds like a gateway drug
  • What's better in mytube compared to tubecast? Or is tubecast better?
  • MyTube is now a universal app. You can use it on all Windows 8.1 devices.
  • MyTube! Is the best. Tubecast is also good but it's buggy on my L521
  • Lovely answer
  • Anyone having install issues for mytube? I get error 80004005...
    Thanks
  • These apps are getting so great.
  • So what will happen to beta users?
  • Execution. Or, more likely, they will still get new beta builds.
  • Love it.
  • That made me laugh.
  • Haha!
  • Daniel, are you going to review the Windows 8.1 version as well? Also, any word if this app will support casting to xbox one, roku, apple tv, etc? TubeCast doesn't support Roku :(
  • This app was free on myappfree once, wasn't it? I remember getting the full app. Now I pressed buy and I have to pay.
  • Exactly.. Same is happening with me
  • Get it from you downloaded list on windowsphone.com site.
  • I am wondering too
  • Same:(
  • I too had got it through myAppfree, but met the same problem..but bought it anyways :D
  • thought i was the only one.
  • I searched it in the store and it is telling me to install and not buy.... Try that instead of the windows central link
  • try updating it from the phone :)  
  • Can't update on phone, it says problem occured in the request or something like this.
  • Won't update unless you pay.
  • Go to your purchase history and reinstall it.... You're done.
  • ​​that didnt work..it asks to buy again...wtf
  • Just follow my instruction below. I think u don't understand what reinstall procedure is....
  • ​after going to purchse history and clicking on reinstall....it says app wasn't purchased
  • I went at the purchase history clicked at reinstall and then searched mytube in store and tried to download.. But it says there is some technical problem.. Try again later.. I'm facing this prob only while dwnlding mytube and not any other apps
  • I have no problem but u should try to uninstall & reinstall it. Then u sign in into http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us(using your WP account) . Once signed , go to your purchase history and click reinstall. It will send a new download for you. Done...
  • I was able to reinstall it but it's version 1.5 not 2.0 and then I can't update it
  • Yeah I'm having the same problem and I see no work around. Just gotta buy the app... can't argue that is it's not worth the dollar.
  • Why do u guys wanna buy it again? Just reinstall it... Follow my above instruction...
  • Because your instructions don't work. After uninstalling it, when I log in to Windows Phone Store website on my pc, it's not listed in my purchase history. When I then search for the app it just has options to try or buy, not reinstall. It's no longer listed as purchased as owned or installed, despite getting it on the Myappfree deal, see? Not the first time it's happened with apps from their offers that have later been updated. So, if anyone has a solution that they've actually successfully used having actually had the problem themselves, I'm all ears.
  • @jazzabrazza... Acutually, the above  instructions work. After scrolling down my purchased list I did not see the "MyTube" app. However, after clicking on "more" about two more times, there it was. I clicked reinstall and vuala!
  • Good for you then. Had you uninstalled it? I couldn't find it in my list after having done so, as suggested, which I did as nothing else was working. It's happened before a few times with myappfree deals. Ah well...
  • This DOES NOT WORK. Several people have told you that.
  • it does work, you have to hit more at the very bottom of the list, until it pops up. I had to go back all the way to June of last year to find it, i had to click more like 9 times before i got there, yes i have installed a lot of apps, to review and provide feedback to devs on how they can possibly improve the app.   I had the first error, after uninstalling i got the 4005 error, doing it from the windowsphone.com site fixed the issue.
  • It seems the Store is having issues right now, hopefully it'll fix itself soon!
  • Error code c101a027 pops up when trying to update. Please help :)
  • Log into "WindowsPhone.com" and then click on purchased. Scroll down the list of your purchased apps until you arrive upon "MyTube." Click reinstall. Afterwards, on your windows phone, open the app. It should be working. I had the same exact issue as  you did, and this remedied my problem. Hope it works for you. The update is awsome!
  • It's not working: after pressing reinstall: >>>>        
  • I cannot update with an error.  Tried to uninstall/install, now it cannot be installed with another error.  I checked my purchase history in windowsphone.com and it said purchased, but when I clicked reinstall, it tells me that "App wasn't purchased". Windows Phone store on my laptop shows that the app is not owned, but on my phone it showed owned.  Like others who seems to have problems here, I got it during the MyAppFree deal.
  • It's happening with many apps...i lost Lumia camera in such a way now I am unable to update or reinstall around ten apps..i think that's the problem with OS...
  • Unfortunately don't think I can, it's up to Microsoft now :)
  • Did you just pull back the update or something like that? It is showing version as 1.5.1.0 in the wp store once again :/
  • I didn't pull the update, the Store seems to be experiencing issues at a really bad time. Hope it fixes itself soon!
  • keep getting error code 80004005
  • Yup, I got the same error code 80004005, but it says that I previously owned this app and it gets me the Install button, but keep getting the error. I restarted the phone... same error code. :)
  • the same here, It used to happen to me once with 8.1 HD tiles
  • Since you are the dev I thought I'd share a response I received when this happened for 8.1 HD Tiles, which doesn't have a trial, without the person's name. "Hi,
    We are extremely sorry about the bug. We are also aware of the issue. The problem is with the latest Windows phone OS. We have contacted Microsoft on the issue. Windows Phone 8.1 has a bug while updating a free app that has now become paid. The only way to get the update is to uninstall and reinstall the app from it's web site. Even then, you will be asked to pay for installation. This seems to be a major bug, but they are not to keen to fix this. So as we value our customer's satisfaction. We have created a private Beta version for our existing users. So kindly send us your Microsoft Live ID with which you have connected your Windows Phone device. We will add your id to beta user list and you can use the app for FREE. This version would also receive frequent updates and popular shortcuts as the original version. Hope that would be helpful. Regards,
    Avedna Krea Support" When I sent the purchase history for mytube to reinstall, it said I never purchased it. When I searched through the store via PC, and clicked on the trial, I have the app back, but lost the ownership. Easiest remedy is either put those with the issue in the beta, or put it for free for a limited time to help those who don't have it anymore.   I no longer can prove I downloaded it during the free app promotion, but if possible, I'd love to get the full features again, without paying, like it should be.   Sincerely, Brandon
  • I used to get from myapfree and yep I just choose reinstall, and get update without pay. i think the store is broken ?
  • Not for me. The only problem in facing is, a) the app can no longer be installed on SD card b) moved it to phone memory and had difficulties updating with error code.
  • I own it, but can't reinstall it. The store reports error code 0x80004005.
  • Ok. I tried all the tips and I didn't get it to work. But when I looked for it from the store (not the WC link) is listed as OWNED. But when I tried to reinstall (had previously uninstalled it) an error pops out.
    When going to the WP page it says it can't send apps to my phone. Tried another app, same thing. Maybe it's a problem in the Store. I suggest you wait and use other app meanwhile (tubecast is pretty much the same) and wait until a fix comes out.
  • It asked me to buy too. Then I revisited the link from wcentral, then it showed "owned".
  • Was able to download at last, but now wants me to buy it again..
  • Best YouTube app out there.
  • Thanks to the dev. Definitely overdue update. Please add Cast feature ...i.e similar to tubecast once the dust settle down.
  • No live tile :/
  • You can still get subscriptions on a live tile by pressing the pin button in the app bar on the subscriptions list.
  • Cool,after the app updated the live tile went away.Thanks for the tip Dan.
  • The new live tile is nowhere near as cool as the old one, however the many new features make up for it!
  • No transparent tile either.
  • That's what I noticed. Is it coming in an update?
  • Mytube or tubecast? Which is better? Both are updated
  • myTube duh~~~~~
  • I know, right?
  • if you like looks, mytube, if you want to stream to a tv with that dongle thing, tubecast
  • What dongle thing?  If your TV or other device hooked up to your TV (Blu-Ray player, or other streaming device) supports DLNA you can cast to it via Tubecast.  It's awesome.
  • Depends on your needs. You aren't losing with either choice and thats the best part. I prefer mytube and thats only for the very specific feature where you can tap a button to only play the audio of the video right there from the main now playing screen. Metrotube also has this feature. Tubecast is gorgeous for casting btw, but its missing this minor little function i use to play music from youtube constantly.
  • Tubecast also had this function to play music you select the cast button. There's an option for Windows Phone Audio.
  • Oh but i mean like right next to the play button theres a music note button that plays the video but just audio. Can i do this without casting anywhere, say i just wanna play the audio outloud on my phone? I tried and couldn't achieve it on tubecast without casting
  • Both are phenomenal, use whichever you like.
  • TubeCast > MyTube. Not that mytube is a bad app or anything but TubeCast is freaking great!
  • myTube > TubeCast I win.
  • is there a chromecast support?
  • Do any of these YouTube apps work for live streams yet?
  • The old Microsoft Youtube app supports streaming.
  • *supported
  • Told ya it was coming!
  • MyTube said, up yours TubeCast.  lol.
  • Great! but can't update the app on SD card I have to move it back to phone internal storage and update no more SD card support? worked fine prior
  • This it's what I'm concerned about... I have a lot of saved videos, and it looks like it will move them to main memory? Not sure what to do.
  • I can't move the app to the main storage either
  • Hey dingl1, due to instability caused by some WinRT issues with installing apps on the SD card, I've decided to temporarily keep the app on phone storage. I may re-add the ability to keep it on the SD card in the next update
  • I don't know that it's a big deal... other than I had a bunch of videos downloaded and I don't think there was a way to move just the app to main memory.  I ended up uninstalling completely (losing the videos) and reinstalling.  Now it seems to be saving new saved videos to SDCard and is working great!  Thanks for the update!
  • Thanks buddy..
  • uhm, can't download? is there an overload or something?
  • Same here.
  • Good question. Not updating for me, either.
  • Same here. Just try later. I'm sure it will be resolved.
  • Uninstalled, now wants me to pay. So this is probably why it won't download as update.
  • Press "buy" and it will say that you can install it without paying.
  • Didn't work, something's fucked.
  • Thats way better that the previous. He has done a great job!
  • Hmm ... I am getting an error while trying to update: c101a7d1
    :'(
  • I get this error too
  • Same here :(
  • I've just deleted the app and reinstalled it did that might help. Niw I get 80007005
  • Same here
  • Same Problem -.- It's a bug, when a trial app was purchased and then updated... very confusing (Source: The Internet)
  • It never was a trail for me though.
  • I had the full app and still have this error too. So it cant be it.   EDIT: for some reason when i try to get it from the store (wp version) it asks me to pay again for the app? 
    LOL to dev, as if i would pay twice the same thing. He can keep his app.
  • You are not paying twice. Click on buy and it will verify that you already own it.
  • Hi Jaoquim, I definitely wouldn't want anyone to pay for the app twice. Developers don't get the option to decide that :) If you hit the "buy" button it should take you to a page saying you already own the app and let you install the app for free. If it doesn't, this is an issue on Microsoft's end, and should be resolved shortly ;)
  • Hi Ryken100,
    Sorry about that, it was foolish of me to say those things. I was just hot headed xD
    Regarding the app, its strange. What happens is, when i try to get it from the phone (even after i uninstalled it) it says i already own the app, but i get an error. If i try to get it from my computer, it really asks me to pay for it. And even then i get an error when i click buy (for 99 cents).
    I will wait to see if it gets fixed.
  • I am getting error code c101a027 :/
  • M getting the same error code
  • This is super awesome! Great job Christopher Blackman.
  • Really good dev. Always informs us about the changes with messages in the app =D it's really great "to talk" with us =]
    Edit: I got that long time ago for free, I think it wasn't even paid, but now I have to pay :( I wonder if people that actually paid before this will need to pay again...
    Edit2: Now I own this again, but with the 80004005 error :(
  • No. I payed for it and I still own it.
  • i get it also for free in promo period and now ask me to puchase it... not allowed to download full version fo free as before..
  • Woot
  • I got the c101a7d1 error too. Tried uninstalling and now I can't reinstall with error code 80004005.
  • Same!!!!!! Whyyyyyyyyy!
  • Got the same error code....
  • the same here, I happened onced with the app 8.1 HD Tiles and guess what it still happen until now 80004005
  • Erased...
  • Atrocious update. Significantly less information and options available per screen in a trade for dead space, necessitating more taps and scrolls than the app previously proved necessary, and with no more functionality than it previously touted.
    Even seems slower. This is the ugly side of Universal apps, where an amazing product gets torn down like a statue of Saddam and turned into a dull, ugly mess in hopes of selling more dollar menu items. What a waste.
  • So, what do you really think?
  • I think like the laughably pitiful Tweetium update, myTube was rushed in hopes of generating commotion instead of delivering on the promise of previous versions, proven by both being pushed at roughly the same time, Christmas, in pursuit of the gift card bucks, and both being shameful shadows of their former selves. There is no professionalism or dignity in this practice.
  • So... you like drama then?  Good grief.  It's like he murdered your mother or something.
  • I'm cogently making an argument about an app while you bring up murdered mothers, and I'm dramatic? Thank you, child.
  • You like to use fancy words (most likely due to some feelings of inadequecy) but your comprehension seems to be lacking. Enjoy your... misery, I guess.  You must be a riot at parties. Moving on... there is clearly no point in any further "discussion" with you.
  • I use normal words and punctuation common to educated people; understandablly, you don't comprehend any of that.
  • Don't stop there you two, I was about to get some popcorn.
  • As someone who's been in myTube's beta since the first time the option became avalible (and also talks to Chris on a regular basis), I can tell you for a facr myTube is no where near rushed. The RT version of the app has been in developement for at least 7 months now. You call that rushed? The app needs to be released at some point and Chris thought it was ready. If you really want to talk about why releasing it now is a good idea, it's because of compititon with other YouTube apps, this updated needed to be submitted to stay relevent and keep users happy. Sure the update could be more polished but remeber, it's largely stable and really smooth and continues the awesome animation and user experience that the orginal myTube intoduced. Chris actually had to re-write the panorama and make a custom user control to make sure users had a smooth experince.
  • So which is it- is the app not rushed or is this a stab at staying relevant? So which is it- was the app ready to release after these many months or is the admitted lack of polish and other qualities it should have a result of an obvious rush? Chris may be a nice guy, but the update is abysmal and a step down in every way.
  • Sorry If I wasn't clear in my first comment, from talking to Chris I know for a fact he genuinely thought it was ready, as for me saying he had to release it now to keep relevant that was my personal opinion. I don't see why you think this project is a rush, he's worked hard on it for 7 months, he has to make his own control to mimic the System Panorama because WinRT's panorama didn't cut it in terms of performance among other things. He had to re-write his API wrapper for RT, so personally I don't think this is at all a rushed update, you can't really call it rushed when its been worked on for more than half a year (which is usually doesn't happen in mobile apps). These are just my 2¢. Though I am a bit curious, you keep mentioning that it doesn't deliver as well as the original Silverlight app did, what do you find lacking?
  • Great job! Excellent!!! Best youtube app on all platforms!
  • Lol I have been uninstalling mytube/tubecast for the other one back and forth, here goes my tubecast, the rt framework >anything
  • MyTube has always been amazing and the new design looks great! Two issues though: Live Tile is gone and there is no option for the Subscriptions page to open on startup.
  • You can pin your subscriptions, even as a Live Tile, for quick access.
  • I to would prefer subscriptions on startup. I don't care for popular or trending crap.
  • This^ I had the option, why I can't have it again?
  • Hey indospot, the app should automatically scroll to your subscriptions once you're signed in. Is that not working for you? This was an issue in the beta, but I had recently submitted an update to the beta that I thought would fix it.
  • Can't open the app, keeps crashing..
  • I had the same problem, had to restart my phone. No issues since
  • This goes to show you that beautiful apps can be made on WP
  • Is this app better than metrotube?
  • Both tubecast and mytube are better than metrotube, not even close imo
  • What makes them better? I've only ever used metrotube
  • Why don't you try it? I'm sure both have trials. For me mytube is the best youtube app available, but I know some whom prefer tubecast. About a year or so ago metrotube practically had no competition but now they're significantly behind the competition.
  • I keep all three, they are the best tube apps on WP - mytube, metrotube and tubecast, its not a binary thing after all you can use each one depending on your mood :-)
  • When will it be available for Windows as well?
  • I am pretty sure I paid for this before, and now I have to buy it again?!
    And when I try to download it back from "my app" list, i keep getting error code 80004005?
    Can any one help?
  • I think u opened link via windows central, so just goto store n then search for mytube manually..thats it.. (:
  • If you've bought the so before, just click on on the buy, it'll verify then you'll see the install button. Happens to me most of the time.
  • Still say I have to pay
  • To unfortunate this had to happen. You may try reporting it to Microsoft. Better still check you download history on PC to be sure you really bought the app.
  • Thanks, and I'm sure I bought the app.
  • Same
  • Getting a c101a7d1 error when trying to update. Anyone know what's going on?
  • What are you watching in the hero image?
  • What's the top image? She's pretty hot.
  • Her name is Quiet, from metal gear solid v, the phantom pain. P.s. She's probably a dude lol. Rumours say she's actually Chico.
  • Gorgeous app! The developers did a fantastic job on this and I will buy it the moment they add the ability to cast it to the youtube app on my Xbox.
  • Thank you Tubecast. I can finally out an end to buying all these freaking YouTube apps.
  • Too little too late. Tubecast is the most fully featured, most official youtube-esque app on the windows store. Mytube had the style going for it but now, tubecast has the best experience overall. HOWEVER, landscape mytube is amazeballs and looks great on desktop/laptop/tablet. For phone, ill stick to the more useable tubecast. I paid for both and ill still use both just on their respective screens.
  • Tubecast is missing one feature mytube has that is huge for me, and anyone who plays music from youtube constantly. The play audio only button. Once tubecast implements this, it's game over lol
  • Well, opinions. You like tubecast more, that's right, but both apps has great features and both are the best yt players.
  • Is this the app to dethrone Hyper?
  • What is hype?
  • It's Hyper and it's probably the best Windows 8.1 YouTube app.
  • Really
  • Really
  • No.
  • 1080p is laggy on 1520
  • Probably your internet connection. Pause the video and wait some seconds before playing the video.
  • I am sure I wll get flamed for this, but I am really tired of images of scantily clad women on this sight and demeaning remarks by people who comment here and in the forums. You guys are a business, and i would think you would not want to offend half of your potential audience. You aren't the only tech site guilty of this, but you are theoneI frequent the most. Truthfully, I believe this has contributed, in some part, to the lack of women in tech.
  • And you post on this article? You could go to the forums.
  • I assume they posted here because of the unneccessary image at the top of the article.  The same thing did occur to me... "why are they using THAT image?".  I don't personally have any skin in the game, but I do agree with TheZuneLune.  There's no reason to use images like that on this site.
  • So where do you get the data that half of their potential is offended or did you just pull that out of your wazoo.
  • Are you arguing that the content is appropriate?
  • I can't update the App.Lumia 1520.
  • Still the best YouTube player out there!
  • This or Meetrotube (~.^)
  • Both, you are not on Android, you can choose the best app for you.
  • Error c101a7d1 for me :'(
  • Same for me.  I moved the app from my SD to the phone as it said and now the error.
  • Woohoo!!!
  • No update yet. Any chance this is for 8.1 & there still publishing the gdr3 build
  • I don't like the restriction mytube imposes, if it sees no good internet it will not show 1080p, or at least for me it doesn't show at all on a Lumia 930 with Denim. tubeCast plays them perfectly, myTube it's stubborn and it doesn't show 1080 60fps
  • Uninstall the app and reinstall it. And not all YouTube videos support 1080/60.
  • ... How is it that TubeCast can do it? myTube was fresh installed. For me it does not do the same job as tubecast, I wish it did. No 1080 60fps
  • Not letting me update giving me error
  • cant download  
  • I wasn't able to update it so I uninstalled it, and now I'm getting an error everytime I try to install it :/
  • Same here. I hope Microsoft fixes it immediately.
  • I buy & use frequently all these 3 ; TubeCast , MyTube! , & MetroTube . Omg .... what am I doing with my life.........
  • Nothing but, u just did amazing job.. Believe me.. (;
  • Not able to download the app..\
    Edit: App no longer exist i mean update has been removed..TADA
  • Unable to download? I have no issues when updating...
  • Please don't be a liar, I'm installing the app now.
  • Y should i lie.. :\
  • I still prefer metrotube, because it lets me read comments and watch the video without the one getting in the way of the other.
  • Now mytube also has same feature, just read the article.. (:
  • Same I immediately missed being able to browse the comments while still watching the video. Also when I tried running mytube and I noticed it took longer on every video to load compared to metrotube. I'd say the biggest feature that interested me over metroube is the ability to download the mp3 of the video through the app, but those load times are killing me.
  • It doesn't autoplay video's anymore? The setting is vind. :( also video's lag..
  • Zero lag here. Check your internet connection
  • Simply beautiful...if only many developers take this much care into building apps for this platform. Thanks to developers like this we can see that the OS is not a limiting factor for quality apps.
  • I couldn't agree more!
  • Very true. In terms of aesthetics, WP is probably the platform with the greatest potential, simply because it has 'no rules' in the sense of letting developers explore their imagination.. In addition to mytube, anyone tried the app 'Recipes by Great British Chefs'? I am always blown away by the sheer beauty and fluidity of that app, no other mobile OS easily permits the design approach of WP!
  • Wow that's one beautifully designed apps....
  • Glad you guys can all use this app now. I've been in the beta from the start and I can tell you it's been amazing to see Chris improving this app to what it is now. Only for that it is already better than Tubecast :-)
  • I tried updating the app but it wouldn't download, showing error c101a7d1. So I figured it'd work if I uninstalled it and installed it again, but now I can't even install it. Does anyone have the same problem?
  • Same problem here. Error code 80004005 when trying to install?
  • Yes, I got that same error code now
  • I have no problem but u should try to uninstall & reinstall it. Then u sign in into http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us(using your WP account) . Once signed , go to your purchase history and click reinstall. It will send a new download for you. Done...
  • It worked! Thanks a lot!!
  • Glad u made it... :)
  • for me after uninstall, app ask me for another purchase...
  • The problem isn't came from the developer, but from the store itself. Store kinda buggy lately......
  • So are ads playing now???
  • No. Adds are not supported which is better for us isn't it!
  • I already liked the app but now I'm in love with it!
  • The photo of the phone, is that a music video?
  • Game, upcoming MGSV: Phantom Pain, char: Quiet.
  • Update failed due to error c101a7d1. So uninstalled the app by cancelling the update. Nd reinstalled it. Now I am not getting any update, but the 1.5.1.0 app can b installed.
  • No update now. Did they remove the update????
  • There is a problem completing your request try again later........store drunk again!!
  • is not problem in store... problem is in purchase licence... i uninstalled 1,5 version from phone ad when tried to dowload it again, app not listed as purchased, asked me for new purchase.... :(
  • Lmao :D
  • It keeps crashing. HTC 8X
  • Uninstall & reinstall... Should be no problem... :)
  • Sad... I prefered the old mytube. Also vevo videos don't play for me now. Why did I have to update?
  • Go in settings and reset the cither and it should play vevo vids again
  • I think that now it's better than tube mate.
  • Tubemates for windows phone are fakes
  • So you get praise and recommendation when you build a nice app like mytube! And you get all the f**k and s**t when you build a crap and unfinished app like... (insert app name here)
  • Ikr, youtube app is like bread and butter. Most of us use it, so yah.
  • Damn...can't update...retry forever I'd like to confirm there is no more limitation onfile size and connection types during background downloads
  • I am proud to be part of MyTube!'s beta since the 2.0 update was first started 5 months ago. ;)
  • 4k doesn't work here. Only 1080p.
  • I like the new version on my 1520
  • I'm not a fan of 2chainz but he destroyed Nancy Grace in that debate...
  • Can't install getting error 80004005 and if I try to install from my apps getting this error c101a7d1 ..
  • because you must uninstall and repurchase app :( 
  • What so foolish but I have xap file of an old version 1.5 but i can't update to the lates version. Oki thanx so i have to stay with tubecast bye bye mytube.
  • No you don't have to purchase any thing again!
    The WP store is experiencing some errors with this app I suggest you just wait for a fix.
  • I wish I could find a YouTube app that let me watch livestreams.  Even the IE browser doesn't let you watch live YouTube streams which is really inconvenient.  My university streams their hockey games online in HD on YouTube and I can't watch on my phone at all.
  • Is MyTube > MetroTube? Been using MetroTube for a long time now and been enjoying it. But been complaining for a while that it tops out at 720p. The app dev emailed me saying 1080p was coming soon and this was a few weeks ago.
  • No its not the same
  • You can always use both apps!
  • Install both and use the one you like more.
  • No Live Tile :'(
  • You are wrong, un pin and repin from the app.
  • You can only pin videos from within the app, not the app itself. Or am I wrong?
  • What the hell. All my saved videos are gone! :( And it doesnt allow to be moved to SD card ?
  • Lol... The old myTube saves the video on the app storage, If you uninstall it you lose your downloads.
  • Finally
  • I'm finding it a bit less responsive, and the videos don't load as quickly for me :/
  • Which phone?
  • Lumia 920
  • Similar case with 720 here
  • This calls for an uninstall. Them Working so so so so so long on an update to make it not updatable after i payed for it. Tubecast here i come. Awesome job.
  • Mine worked just fine. How about contacting the developer
  • Can't find my saved videos and sometimes crashes while launching
  • Same here. :/ Cant find my videos either. And to top it the app even fails to open now.
  • Me too, I want my all 4 GB saved, I can't find it anywhere.
  • On checking storage sense...the app does show initial size. Which might mean the saved vids havent deleated. But i m fearful of re-installing the app, it may delete everything. God this sucks so bad
  • What's going on, I already got this with that myappfree crap and now I have to pay?
  • Lol... Read at least some comments... If the store ask for buying, tap on buy and the store will allow you to install the app without buying.
  • No it's not let you install without paying ..
  • Just wait for a fix it will be fine. Also this is not the developer fault its just that the store is facing some problems today.
  • 2Chainz handled himself very well in that interview but yea the update is amazing
  • Haha. Windows Phone have better YouTube apps than Android. Not one Android YouTube app is decent.
  • This dev seems pretty good. He often posts a splash screen which nicely details any random issue that has cropped up, and also that he will fix it. 10 points Chris.
  • Oh yes, the update is as smooth as velvet. Although I don't appreciate how it defaults to "most popular" as opposed to "my subscriptions" with no options to change the order. I hate it when "services" do that, like when FB forces you to read "top stories" as opposed to "most recent" on the mobile app. Where's my choice in the matter? Anywhoozles, I think I'll return to Tubecast, seeing as it's just as smooth and just as pretty looking as myTube with the added bonus of casting video. Hopefully myTube will allow me to see my subs's videos on start up in a future update.
  • When you sign in it defaults to your subscription feed. Try it!
  • Excellent app.  I'd pay for it five times over.  We are blessed with a few apps that are not only amazing to look at, but very functional.  Poki is another that comes to mind.  They (along with others I'm probably overlooking) can go toe to toe with any app on any platform. 
  • Yep, Google couldn't deliver a better youtube app even if they really tried.. Only goes to show that it's indeed committed developers that build an ecosystem! Developers, developers, developers!!!
  • True that!
  • Update is pulled back...
  • Looks and works really well. Maybe I'm missing something but under share button I didn't find anyway to copy video URL. Hope it'll be back soon.
  • Badass been wanting 1080p
  • Oh and NANCY GRACE IS A DUMBASS!!
  • Tubecast is the best..
  • asking me for purchase!!!! WTF?????? i catch myTube long time ago for 0$ and always can installed full version until now.... 
  • I will always have a place in my heart for the old UI but it's still a great app.
  • Is the trial unlimited like on MetroTube? I keep holding out hope Google will someday release an official YT app.
  • I have been spoiled with mytube app. I can't use the native YouTube app on android anymore. UI is so amazing and the ability to read comments or browse videos while playing are the best features.
  • Previous version looked a lot better with the proper placement of UI elements (search and home) and better animations. The new version looks so bland in comparison and is missing the cool pinch to zoom gesture. Like the new Disqus app I appreciate the effort the developer has put into it but downgrading the UI is a disappointment.
  • I am a beta tester and I can state this app is wonderful! It grew up day by day and now is probably the best and the most beautiful youtube app on the store. And is surely better than the official youtube apps for ios and lagdroid!
  • This App right here! Is the biz.
  • I also had an error while trying to update. I uninstalled and tried to reinstall from my purchase history, where I got an error stating the app hadn't been purchased. At that point I remembered that I got the app when it was available for free sometime in 2014, so I truly hadn't actually paid for it. It's definitely worth the $1(+tax) that it costs, so I paid for it, after which the app installed normally. Kind of a bummer that the Store made the update process so cumbersome by giving cryptic error codes on the device instead of a useful descriptive error message. In the end it worked out, though. Thanks for a great app, dev!
  • Just tap on buy, then the store will recognize you own the app.
  • In my case it didn't work that way; I had to actually buy it. I don't know if it's supposed to work that way or not for people who got the app for free, but I don't mind paying for it since I didn't pay for it before. Had I paid for it, I would expect it to let me install without repurchasing.
  • Meh.  metrotube works just fine for me and if I want to cast I use TubeCast.
  • Tell me more about it!
  • How do i choose transparent live tile like before?
  • Just switched, thanks!
  • The app wont update! Has an error
  • Same here, c101a7d1.
  • Someone noticed you can't play Vevo videos. Because i can't
  • I too noticed this.
  • Just go to settings and scroll down you will find "update cipher" click that and it should be fine.
  • i don't have "update cipher" in mytube 2.0 settings.
  • It should be there keep looking.
    Also the problems with the VEVO videos usually get fixed by the developer without an update to the whole app he just updates the API of the app so if its not fixed yet and u don't find "update cipher" just be patient.
  • I lost all of my saved videos...
  • Maybe but i think they're still on youtube servers so you didn't lose anything :)
  • FINALLY!!!!
  • Found a fix. Click on the link, sign in. It will them take you to try or buy option. http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=d994dce8-38f9-4ed3-ae6c-e334d4bd558c
  • I cant download the update...
  • Can't install on SD card? Why the hell not?
  • So u can't complain about the app crashing in your phone because your SD card failed!!!
  • Wait... where is the transparent live tile? -_-
  • It's showing store error 80004005...... What to do??
  • Will these universal apps have to be rewritten to be universal apps in Win10?
  • It's a possibility. But i think they made this from now so in the future when W10 comes out everything will be ready for the One platform.
  • I had the same problem. Got it on myfreeapp and couldn't update. Gave error code. Uninstall the app and tried again and couldn't install. So I manually changed new apps to install onto the phone under storage and finally worked. The app can only be installed on the phone memory.not SD cards. Even if u selected after the prompt asked you, it would give error message. So you guys try changing manually where installs to... Nokia 1520.
  • Latest version has been made unavailable from store after errors in updating the app
  • Why no autoplay anymore?:(
  • Why are you too lazy to tap on the screen?
  • No problems here updating on Lumia 1520, wish the Windows 8 version was out already.. Much needed there..
  • Chris, great work here. But I have a request to bring back the transparent live tile showing popular videos in the region and not just the subscription tile. The old version's tile was looking great on my Start screen. Other than that, great update.
  • So... I still can't install it, 80004005 error code, same as the rest, unable to update the app, unistall it... Oh well, let's wait :(
  • Just waiting for the update .... Made my Day .... ^_* [Thanx]
  • Can't download !
  • Same...
  • Nice features added.....now would like to see 1080p and 144p support....so that it finaly gains parity with google youtube app resolutiins......144p comes handy while previewing video for download in low speed or limited data plans..
  • I love myTube. Its a bit annoying I had to move the app to phone storage for this update but we'll have to live with it. L1520
  • This is awesome. Christopher Blackman, you have truly outdone yourself.
  • Not working updates are shown but when I'm updating it shows nothing
  • Error code: c101a7d1 :(
  • I think developer removed 2.0 update. What going on Daniel Rubino?
  • I too think so. It's still v1.5
  • I'm getting an error trying to download the update. c101a7d1. 
  • Same error....c101a7d1
  • Can't update the app .... [ERROR CODE]
  • Same here let's wait til they fix this.
  • How I wish I didn't update..... I really miss the old look...
  • Not downloading or installing....
  • Update is not available. It's still showing version 1.5.
  • Just go with the link in wpcentral, and press buy, you will not to pay anymore, but uninstal the app first
  • Can't seem to update it... I'm keep getting an error.
  • The "Share" from IE feature used in myTube! 2.0 update instead of JavaScript as in previous versions is very clever. Maybe more apps could use similar feature to open pages in their respective apps when viewing on the web. Sadly, even Windows Central website only offers me to install the app (with a banner at the top) and not to open in the app if it is installed.
  • So, the beta windows 8.1 app diverted me to windows store acter it became nonfunctional. I thought inwas crazy all this time because I never found. Glad to know that I wasn't and it's coming soon.
  • am not able to download the update..:(
  • Its not getting updated. Some error.
  • I haven't received any update.. :/
  • i recieved the update but store still showing old version here in India.... even also for uc browser.... i think store has some issue
  • I am still getting the same error. Any update guys?
  • And it crash on my 720, uninstall it and cant reinstall
  • Nothing worked always an error when trying to update. Uninstalled and now appear as an app I can buy. The status owned disappeared after a couple of attempts to install. What to do? How to contact the app developer...??
  • The same! But now I reinstall 1.5 version again!
  • But still free for me! Hehe
  • And now it show an update again!
  • I already own this app and now it is telling me to buy this app. Pls help
  • I won't upgrade until autoplay option will come back. That's how much this feature means to me.
  • There is an autoplay toggle in settings menu check that out
  • This might be a little off topic, but I have question: I have a Nokia Lumia 1320, and I use MetroTube. The app works flawlessly, however, when I'm watching a video full-screen, I only see three resolution choices (720p, 480p & 360p), even if the video is available in 1080p (and higher) resolutions. I want to know, is this because MetroTube can automatically detect the device's display resolution (720p, as in this case), and hence doesn't display 1080p and upward options? Or it could be a glitch? I mean, does MetroTube support 1080p playback or not?
  • I don't know if metrotube support 1080p or no but isn't it better to watch the video in 720p a perfect resolution for your screen and it will look better than the over pixlated 1080p or more on a small screen (720p)
  • That's a big update. Keep supporting windows phone.
  • Not able to update our download :'(
    Fix it Microsoft !
  • Can't install the program. An error erupt 80004005..
  • I personally use myTube and Tubecast, tubecast is far slower and is only really good for streaming to a DNLA tv its quite a buggy app at times. myTube on the other hand is excellent, nice ui and super fast
  • Error 80004005... What do i do?? Can anyone help me...
  • How about error installing. Error code 800004005  
  • Why do we need to pay again it was free on myappfree
  • For some reason I couldn't update. Thought I'll try deleting and downloading again. But now it wont download either. Will try again later.
  • Same thing had happened to me!!!
  • I cant play or download vevo videos. What is the prblm developer.
  • Go to settings scroll down and tap the "update cipher" it should be fine after that
  • No transparent live tile?
  • Unable to download 2.0 update.
  • This is sad. Was expecting to see what's new. Yet, can't install and now using the free version instead... Already emailed the developer. Hope to get it resolved soon....
  • stuck and wont move an inch from my windows app store.. ?!
  • I still can't install this.
  • It looks absolutely stunning in full HD and video downloads!!! It no longer complains about using mobile dataplan. I've 50gigs per month, so its not an issue... Absolutely a must download, despite of todays morning store glitch. There's no excuse, go and get yourself v2.  
  • Hi. I'm from Spain and I can´t download the update. I get the code error c101a7d1. I've tried it several times, at different times, but I only get the same error again and again. I've got a Lumia 520.
  • Best app. Please make an music player with this smooth flow.i would definitely buy, guess most of them are waiting for it
  • Best YouTube app..
  • Error!!! Error!!! Error!!!
