I'd love to see a Wikipedia article (or even localized ones) for NewPipe. I assume the app is mature enough by now, and there's enough references one could use in my opinion.

I'd love to see our contributors compose an article about this really awesome piece of software.

@theScrabi and I put a list of references together you might use (a few are in German, and it would be awesome to see those magazine articles as references):

This was referenced Aug 30, 2017

  • Find Google Play terms where it says YouTube frontends, or whatever may be the issue, are not allowed.
  • Populate with links
  • Include more info about format support etc.

Thanks @comradekingu! Awesome to see someone's picked up my idea!

As images, you can use the screenshots published in this repository. They're under the GPL v3 license, and can thus be used on Wikipedia.

The apps are not allowed due to their Terms of Service if I remember correctly. @theScrabi please elaborate.

Please post the links you want to have, and we'll send you some.

Something I noticed is that the authors list contains "TeamNewPipe". Please use "Team NewPipe" instead, the former is just the short name for the GitHub URL.

On the assumption that Christian didn't make it, it needs the author field updated.

The file says it will be deleted if correct licensing information isn't added.
Doing it through the editor only dropped "GPLv3" outside of the field, and none of the other cryptic information seems to help. If you can upload it yourself, and if possible with any of the suggested licenses, that would perhaps be accepted.

@comradekingu I have to note that now, it's "Team New Pipe", but since the app itself is called "NewPipe" (no space), it's "Team NewPipe". I hope you don't mind me being a little pedantic about this, but it should be correct.

NewPipe could also be added to the article "Comparison of YouTube downloaders"

Maybe this link could be used for Google Play terms violation: https://play.google.com/about/ip-deception-spam/impersonation-ip/encouraging-infringement/

@coffeemakr I had a go, still got the functionality section to do.

The format support looks to me like NewPipe doesn't do any lossy transcoding, whereas 3GP is mentioned as one of the converted formats. Is that done by youtube backend?

Yes, NewPipe is not capable of converting anything.

NewPipe is No. 14 trending project today 🎉
I tried to find the reasons for that. I guess one big reason is the release of 0.10.0. I also saw this Reddit post wich was opend only one day ago and has more than 800 comments and 6500 views now. I think we can use it also for TeamNewPipe/website#33. Maybe we should do some more blogging on platforms like medium, reddit etc.
I'd like to add these links to the list above:
http://techpp.com/2017/09/19/play-youtube-videos-background-android-newspipe/
https://android.com.pl/aplikacje/98040-newpipe-alternatywna-aplikacja-youtube/ (Polish and quite long)

@TheAssassin yeah, had to discuss the importance of NewPipe a few times, but by now there is enough media coverage to warrant the article. In the german wiki there was an even longer discussion, but it should be all resolved by now 😃
