Finally an YouTube app like the one from apple TV.
My ATV died and replaced it with a 2011 Mini and I try to emulate some apps.

Works on my 2011 Mini (Lion) and 2008 MBP (SL).

The major plus is that you can access your account playlist. (no need to make them all over again)

The major minus is that it only show max. 50 videos per playlist (not 200 as max from YouTube).

I will donate even tho i don't care about DL feature.

Great app.

Make a nicer UI, increase the number of videos displayed to 200 and take my money :)

Dev says on his webzone that he's working on a successor called MotiOnline. So does that mean that YouView will be discontinued eventually? What would be the use of donating for full features if the app will be abandoned in the near future?

I really like this app - it immediately did everything i wanted, & the developer answered my questions right away. It's still in beta stage, which makes its performance even more impressive.

If you were logged into your YouTube Account, you'll likely have to remove and re-add the account. 403 = permissions denied.

Review:

This is the best youtube viewer/downloader IMO.
I have tried them all, this has the most features, it's minimal, and has many nice features.

You have access to you're channel, favorites and subscriptions. This alone is great, and not available on similar apps I have paid 5x the price for.

You also have an extension for when viewing any YouTube links in Safari, they are instantly captured and auto play in the app.

The app runs in the full window, unlike other apps that have the video and a sidebar or something open at the same time and no way to disable.

And lastly, if you donate to him, I donated the minimum of 2-3 bucks I think it was, the app will download and convert the videos for you. And it does these two things very well, fast downloads and lots of video settings.

The only thing I noticed bug wise, was when seeking with the nav bar on the bottom, sometimes, the bar will jump out of place and stay in the middle of the screen until you close the app. And also comments under video option does not work for me.

Don't know why this app get mediocre rating...it's a beta, and the guy is asking for a measly 2 bucks for his download and converting features.

I'm loving this app, I use it daily, and I look forward to the updates.

It is not freeware.
It requires a "donation" in order to unlock downloading and exporting videos.

Didn't used it. I hate when people lies.

"Donations are required to get downloading." Always has been in the description. I give keys out to people who ask.

It is not in the description on MacUpdate.

"free" is not free when a fee is charged to unlock all the features of a product. That qualifies it as shareware or commercial. Free means that ALL the features of a product are available upon a free download.

A "donation" is a payment when it is required to unlock all the features of a product.

The users should stop playing with semantics here and call it what it is - A demo (shareware or commercial) with all the features available with a payment.

Would you provide keys to people asked for them and gave you $0 as a "donation"?

If so do what everyone else had done and include a donation message in the product and a checkbox indicating donation.

Otherwise I'm out. Besides their are plenty of other products that do the same thing, many of them that are really free.

My error - MacUpdate does mention the donation. Did not see it the first time I read it. I apologize for this mistake.

If your using Google's 2 step verification, you need to use an applcation password. Otherwise, you also need the full email address not the user name.

I believe this happens whenever you do not have any association for the movie files to begain with. You can choose which application your movies open with by opening the get info window on finder for a file that is set to open with YouView, choose the application you want, and click change all.

Apparently this wasn't fixed - can't watch anything here.
