I use it for 3 months and it's great:
Pros:

  1. Lightweight: not 10 MB, not 20 MB, just 4 MB.
  2. Performance: quick start
  3. Support of other players: you can play youtube videos in VLC or something else.
  4. You can download videos
  5. Picture in Picture support
  6. No ads
  7. FOSS, for me it matter

Cons:

  1. You can't login to yout account: no history, no recommendations
  2. No trends

My usecase: at first I open youtube video page in browser (from articles, from recommendations, etc), at second, I just open link in application

reply

Now it supports trend but no recommendations

Fast, Simple, open Source

This is the best YouTube-client (IMHO). He has no aggressive updates, as in SkyTube.

Really freedom using YouTube, no ads, autoplaying feature, background playing, only audio playing. Can't login by yours google account. FOSS.

The best Youtube alternative to my mind.

Great app to reproduce any video from YouTube, but without tracking you and without advertisement. You can also reproduce videos on the background which is great for listening to music or podcasts, with the additional advantages that it will save you bandwidth (since only audio is loaded) and battery (since you can turn off the screen).

Doesn't download to MP3, deal-breaker to me.

read FAQ before posting.

Youtube sound is not in MP3 format, it's either AAC (M4A) or OGG. And MP3 is junk anyway...
