In addition to hosting the APK on Box.com, I'll also begin hosting the APK on Google Drive again.

I have been working on adding support for Android’s new mediaplayer (Exoplayer) that will now play every YouTube stream as well as adding Chromecast support. Since this used to be a BETA testing group, I am releasing v1.4.0-BETA via the link below.

There are some known quirks with ExoPlayer that I have reported to the developers. The biggest bug is the media player does not always recognize the song has ended. Please report any other bugs that you find as well as streams that fail to load as they have not all been tested.



Thank you everyone for your support.

For those who are having problems downloading/installing the newest APK, there is an issue with Google Drive's "manage version" setting that now turns APK's into a compressed archive.

As a result, I will no longer be using Google Drive to host new versions of the app and will instead use "Box.com" as the new download source. The new link is available in the About section. Thank you to those who notified me of this issue.

v1.3.9 has been released to fix the playback issues some people are experiencing. Let me know if the problem continue to occur.

Hi all. There was so much activity yesterday that FireTube went over it's YouTube quota. All activity returned a 403 error for a couple of hours but turned on again by itself. I plan to add another YouTube key to FireTube to essentially double the quota amount in the next release.

Thanks,
Steve
