Beautiful Idea! But I had some difficoulty to close the widget. Please, can you add a setting to keep visible the lateral bar for dragging and closing porpouse? I want to ask you also If you are interested to add a setting to transform the video into a audio player for the desktop. Anyway, thanks! :)

Hi Zanturik, this is a great widget, but can you put a pin option? So we can watch videos while doing other things.

Thank you for your testing, but I can`t see the video (video is unavailable (c) youtube). Anyway, I know about some strange behavior with panels, but as usual there is no time for it in the end of the year :) I`ll try to fix it in january. :) Wish you a merry Christmas :)

Any possibilities of plasmatube working in the panel

Report

Python

Hi Zanturik

Your work is fantastic and now I can add a plasmatube for each activity with its dedicated preset buttons. Great !!!

- Now, I tried to place the plasmatube in a panel as a dock bar (the desktop is much more clean, functional and perhaps even less expensive in terms of memory usage), so in this case I would have only a plasmoid for all activities, but in this case is it posible change the preset buttons when i switch to another activity ? .
- Is possible to implement an advanced search for "language" and "upload date" ?
- It would be interesting and very confortable once you find the playlist (not in the setup form window), display its numbers of videos and than, by a simple right-click above the video preview, add it to the preset buttons, is it possible ? even though I realize that's not all what it seems easy to do it really is.
- It is also possible to implement the order of the preset buttons by dragging them or in some other way?
- It would be very nice to have the option to change the color of the preset buttons in dark theme
- Is there a way to add a button to export the playlist or video to the youtube-downloader scrip
t
Thank you very much, bye

Oh.... :) You have a lot of ideas, thats good, I like it. Will try to implement all these features, except colors. I think it`s not a good practice to set up colors in each individual application, so, new release follows the rules and uses current theme colors.

Thanks for your ideas and testing plasmatube :)

Hi Zanturik

When plasmatube is docked in the panel, it happens that, the preset buttons do not follow current activity, it would be really helpful since I intend to place it permanently in my dock panel, it can happen very often you need to switch from "Design" activitiy (presetbuttons: "tutorial gimp" "Inkscape tutorial" "tutorial Blender") to a new activity "Developement" and then, finding all the preset buttons adapted to the new activity (presetbuttons:"Python tutorial" "tutorial C ++" "Java tutorial"). I am convinced that Ivan Cukic the developer who brought forward the development of activities in kde would be very happy
* Font / button colors now taken from the current theme
    ok it works well
* Playlist / channels now back in search results showing the list of videos after clicking
    - Search on plasmatube
        It works very well
        In Youtube there is a session that refers to the suggested videos based on the user preferences, well, it might be interesting to have a set of suggested videos instead that by user preferences, even in this case, based on type of current activitiy, but do not know if you can do it
        And have the ability to add presetbutton from here would be the top
    - Search on plasmatube setting form
        I can only add presetbuttons for channels but not for playlists and usually those looking for something on the tube mainly seeks playlist.
        If I search for "python" in the plasmatube setting form get far fewer results than the same research carried out on youtube (channel field) and in any case Mmmh is not comfortable at all because there is not the possibility to have a preview of the video !!. Probably the best solution would be to do all this from plasmatube perhaps with a search field to the playlist and one for channels and thus add redsults as presetbuttons from here by a right clck on the plasmatube's top-video previews panel
* Number of videos in settings
        It works very well

Hello,
Version 2.2 just released, I tried to implement almost all the features you wanted, so you are welcome to test it :)
Language preferences, sharing link/button and recommended videos are in the roadmap, will try to implement it in future releases.

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

Here I am, I'm your torment :)

- I noticed that, only playlists and channels can be added as a presetbutton, perhaps to avoid adding the single video of a playlist, well about the single video researched, I think is correct to have the opportunity to add it as a preset buttons while for the single video of a playlist, no

- Under certain conditions if I click on search, appears to me "press to switch back to the video list", and there's no way to exit out of the loop" perhaps, simply the search field remains hidden ;)

- With the plasmatube docked in the panel, sometimes, when I play a video, I can only hear the audio, the video remain in wait state while if I click on the plasmatube and then reopen it, the video returns to be displayed correctly

- Maybe the color of the "Add channel" label should take on a different color, often the white text is confused with the lyrics of minrature

- Is it appropriate to keep the video running when you move from one activity to another?

- It would be useful, view the video's position running a play list eg. something like ButtonPrev 5/38 buttonNext

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 :)
