Third-party YouTube player myTube scored an update today that brings loads of bug fixes, along with a way for users who lost their paid status after the 2.0 update to request a new product key.
Here's a full breakdown of what's new and fixed in myTube version 18.104.22.168:
- Product key system implemented. Those who lost access to the paid version of the app can now submit a product key request from the "about + extras" section
- Fixed bug where trial mode waiting timer would never end
- Rearranged settings panel
- Fixed bug where the app sometimes wouldn't open to the subscriptions panel
- Re-implemented developer messages (including ability to comment on the messages)
- Fixed bug that may have caused a crash at launch for some
- Additional fixes and improvements
Back in January, myTube was revamped in its version 2.0 update. Unfortunately a number of users reported issues with the update, including losing their paid status if they had purchased the app prior to the update. Fortunately, with today's update, it looks like those users will be able to enjoy all of the app's features once again by submitting a product key request through the app. If you were one of the users affected, be sure to snag the update from the store link below.
Update: We've been in contact with the developer of myTube and he's given us the following information on how to go about recovering a product key if you previously lost access to the paid version of the app:
The developer also notes that product key requests will initially only be accepted through March 21 as he deals with an influx of requests. He expects to reopen submissions shortly after, but it may take him a few days to get to respond to each request.
We also have some bad news concerning the potential Windows 8.1 version of the myTube app. It looks like the app has run into some issues with the certification process in the Windows Store:
