FAQ page #69
As already discussed before we need a place to explain features a little further. We collected some potential Q&As and tutorials in TeamNewPipe/NewPipe#1316:
Nevertheless we should introduce new features for each new version in a detailed blog post.
I'll come up with a nice design soon.
I added some more interesting points and put them into categories. Does the grouping make sense to you? Should any items be removed? @theScrabi @TheAssassin @karyogamy @mauriciocolli @wb9688
Import / Export / Download
Known bugs / Can you please implement …?
I basically planned two different page types:
a) The FAQ & Tutorials landing page
b) The sub-sites with the tutorials
When there are no objections, I'd start to implement this. This will take some time since we have beautiful weather in Germany right now ;)

Below, I have made a draft suitable for use on the project's github profile. Which can easily be adapted to the app's website.

@princekelly1 Thanks for writing some new FAQs.
Are there any tutorials which should be there instead of the save mobile data box? e.g. switch between players or import subscriptions. Which tutorials do you prefer to display on the main page?
As you can see, we need an additional tutorial on how to enable unknown sources and install NewPipe properly.
How to enable the unknown source to install NewPipe on your device
First method: Open your device settings. Then locate and open security settings, you should see an option Unknown sources. Activate it to allow installation of apps from unknown sources. Then you can download your Newpipe app and install successfully on your device.
Second Method: If you have downloaded the Newpipe app, and on installing, you get a message, For security, your phone is set to block installation of apps obtained from unknown sources. Click settings, and locate Unknown Sources, activate it. Go back to your installation and your app will be installed successfully on your device.
