Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. As you may know, there is no official Youtube client with native support for Sailfish OS yet, so the users had to use the Android Youtube app.

YTPlayer: The First Youtube Client With Native Sailfish OS Support Will Be Available Soon

A third party developer has started work at an open source Youtube app called YTPlayer. Since the app is in an early development stage, it allows the users only to search for videos on Youtube, via keywords or by categories, but functions for like/dislike, comment, or upload will be included to the version, sooner or later.

The YTPlayer, in it’s early development stage can be downloaded from GitHub.

For more information, see the below video (unfortunately, it is in French):

For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
