Do NOT install #NewPipe through the Samsumg Galaxy Store!
A copy of #newpipe is currently distributed through the Samsung Galaxy Store by a third party. The package id of that version is identical to the officiail one (org.schabi.newpipe), but the signing keys differ.
Surprisingly, users running an outdated version recieve a notification to update their installed version with the one uploaded in the Galaxy Store.
@loke We have our own F-Droid repository containing the latest version. You can follow these steps to add it to your F-Droid client: https://newpipe.net/FAQ/tutorials/install-add-fdroid-repo/
There is problem with updating the version in the "normal" F-Droid repo. The app builds successfully, but the signing steps fails. This is caused by the F-Droid buildserver which fails to verify the generated APK to be identical to the one we share with them.
We tried different things to get the verification process to succeed, but that did not help.
@tobigr Thank you! It does work. That's a very annoying problem to have, and that explains why there wasn't any updates. I thought the project was simply unmaintained. Sorry about that.
