    Aarrghhh, it's not just you. There's been some issues with the API key lately. I'll fix it now and see what happens. Very sorry!

    It's been on and off all day today. I've got some better analytics up and running and the amount of people using it has been insane, thousands of people in just hours. I'm definitely gonna need to add a fix for this, because the API key runs out too quickly. Thanks for using it and for bringing it to my attention.

    Yeah no problem! It's insane how your website works to watch youtube videos on the switch. I admire your wok anyway. To help, I try to give as much feedback to make sure things work.

    :D And yeah I just hated that you had to use Google Plus for watching videos so I thought I'd make this. Your feedback was really helpful because even though a ton of others have reached out to tell me about the search not working, it was nice to see it on here and it also encouraged me to find a way around that happening.

    The amount of people using it has just been insane. Tens of thousands of requests every day.

    And also, I might add a feedback widget onto the page itself. That might be cool!

    Haha which page is that?

    But yeah, it's crazy. I set up my own analytics thing every time a request is made, and it's up to over 60 000 or something and I only set it up like a day or two ago.

    I know this isn't homebrew so not all of you are interested, but just thought I'd update this to let you all know that you can now search for channels and view it's videos through SwitchTube! It's pretty useful and was suggested a couple of times through the feedback section.

    Oh, nice! The only reason I haven't mentioned it is because I haven't mentioned Switchbru either, they also have a link set up and a mention of it using that method on their DNS page, so lots of people see it there. Thanks for you help. :D

    They actually are useless video applet isn't working on their dns and your site isn't working on their dns hack.

    What? They explicitly point out in their instructions that the DNS doesn't work so it's fine. Every other site works in their DNS so it's great. And I point out via a popup on my site that you can't use it if it finds them in the DNS trick.

    Sidenote, I now have a way to let you sign in to the site using your YouTube account to view your subscriptions. It's a little bit strange, sometimes it closes the browser and doesn't let you log in but I've managed to get it to work once or twice. I'll do my best to fix it if I can but for now it is there.

    Hello everyone, not sure if this is completely allowed but I just thought I'd point out that I have a Patreon available if anyone would like to support me: https://www.patreon.com/ep8script

    It would mean a lot to me and will help me to continue working on this website, and to eventually move on to developing homebrew applications and YouTube videos.

    Those who donate will have a slightly higher priority for suggestions on SwitchTube and will be mentioned at the bottom of the page in the future.

    If this isn't allowed, feel free to remove. Thank you!

    no
    If you can, would it be possible to make this work for other sites like crunchyroll, vimeo, dailymotion, twitch, etc.

    Definitely not crunchyroll, but maybe some of those sites if I felt like it at the time. I am considering adding support for Twitch videos and clips - live videos won't work for that, but live on YouTube does.

    Yeah. I'm really sorry about that. I managed to fix it as it was reported in both my feedback and on the SwitchBru Discord. It's now fixed. Was due to accidental errors I made in adding an update for additional pages in the search section - I'll add it back when I work out what the bug was. Very sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for using SwitchTube!

    First, many thanks for this tool and your work. I really love it to watch youtube videos on my switch.
    The second thing is, the Switch can't handle veeery long YT videos. Yeah, I mean the many hours videos. Is there a way, for you or for me, to fix that somehow?

    Thank you very much for using it! I haven't had the time to do it as much lately but that's why I made it, it's the perfect device for watching YouTube.

    Hmm, that's interesting. Unfortunately if that's a device issue, I can't really do anything to fix that from not working. Sorry about that!

    That's all right. And who knows, maybe there will be a solution at some point. Especially until we hopefully get an official browser and/or a YouTube app soon.
    Until then I look forward to further updates from your side.
