0.14.2 can't play YouTube videos anymore. Downgrading to 0.14.1 seems to work for the moment. (Need to uninstall the latest version first.)

The problem is fixed upstream in version 0.15 which will be on fdroid in 1-2 days.

Google somehow changed the license terms of the Android SDK a few days ago. As the licnese hash is programatically checked by the SDK-tools, this means hat unfortunately builds are failing all over the place. (Not just for but in peoples CI systems as well.)

We are looking into it: gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver

G-Droid 0.7.0 is now available on . This version shows apps similar to your installed apps and apps you might also like. Give it a try! This is a new experience to browse apps of the F-Droid repository.

Another good thing: it does all these things without stealing your data to analyze it or do any kind of tracking. 😍

@tom79 the wiki page not updating is weird... πŸ€”

@devinius we're working on making this a lot better with mirror support.

Mirrors are working and can be added in the app but there's no logic yet to select a faster one. Hang in for a while longer :-).

@kuketzblog kann wer java und hat lust zdf support fΓΌr NewPipe zu bauen?

If you want to get some great app recommendations you really should follow @fdroid_lurker!

Also make sure to take a look at the backlog of that account.

@gaditb That's a plus, and highly appreciated, yes.😊

So what to do:

1. Does the app look legitimate? Are the permissions it declares (AndroidManifest.xml) reasonable? The library dependencies (build.gradle) look okay?
2. Does it build with fdroid build <appID>?
3. Is there at least a description and Summary present in the metadata file? Also author name, website, donation information where applicable?
