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:

  • how to open up the background player queue from notification (though this should be part of the tutorial)
  • downloading on sdcard is not functional and is in the works right now
  • what's new / feed is currently experimental and is in the works right now
  • age-gated video will produce an error snackbar on video details fragment
  • auto-play toggle
  • how to switch between players
  • how to search and play SoundCloud streams
  • open stream options with a longpress on the stream item in a list
  • longpress on background / popup buttons to enqueue stream
  • import / export subscriptions
  • import / export app data (history, ...)
  • swipe to left/right to close popup player
  • resize popup player
  • comment support on our todo-list
  • no Google login

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
Some things appear twice on the list which is not perfect, but I personally would search for them in both categories.

Player

Player handling

  • Switch between players
  • Resize popup
  • Close popup
  • Open background player from notification

Player enhancements

  • Enable autoplay
  • All about playlists/playqueues
  • Enable subtitles

Import / Export / Download

  • Subscriptions
  • App database
  • Sd card
  • Audio missing streams
  • MP3 download

Known bugs / Can you please implement …?

  • SDcard
  • Audio missing streams
  • MP3 download
  • SoundCloud
  • YouTube feed / What's New
  • Google login
  • YouTube comments

I basically planned two different page types:

a) The FAQ & Tutorials landing page
From here you can get to one of the three sub-sites. I think a search could be helpful too.

b) The sub-sites with the tutorials
Initially the texts should be collapsed to offer a clean UI. Clicking on a title unfolds the content. This is quite handy for mobiles too.

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.
If you like this draft. I will keep working on the template i created.
I await your reply.

@princekelly1 Thanks for writing some new FAQs. 👍 The subscriptions tutorial is really helpful. I'll implement it soon after the new app release. I'd like to change the trending FAQ a bit to start a new collection for the getting started page.

@TheAssassin @theScrabi @princekelly1 @saderror256 This is how I'd like to include and announce the FAQ page on the home page. Is there something missing which needs to be there?

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.

Feature request:
When playing a video in pop-out, be able to minimize that pop-out and then come back to it without losing the video or place.
Also, save the video speed across the platform.
Thanks
