LibreTube is a free open-source YouTube alternative player for Windows developed by Bnyro. This streaming platform allows you to watch all your favourite YouTube videos without ads, in the highest quality. The app also offers a playlist system, and you can keep the audio playing even if you close it. If you already have a Google account, you can manage your subscriptions with LibreTube and group channels to find them more quickly.
Features To Enjoy YouTube Content
The official YouTube app is limited unless you pay for a subscription, and LibreTube offers some features you won’t be able to experience with YouTube. LibreTube gets rid of the annoying ads that frequently pop up when using YouTube.
You can also create playlists and group channels to find the content you’re interested in easier. Furthermore, if your internet connection isn’t always stable, LibreTube allows you to download the videos to watch them later or offline. For those using laptops, it’s also possible to have the audio of the video playing even if you close it. It also works if you turn off your screen on a desktop PC.
An intuitive UI
The UI offered by LibreTube is straightforward, and if you’re already using YouTube a lot, you won’t feel lost. You can easily find your subscriptions, playlist, video history, and downloaded videos with the different tabs. Similar to the original, you can also post comments, like videos, because you’re connected with your Google account.
YouTube, But Better
YouTube is already a straightforward platform, but it lacks some features, which LibreTube offers to its users. The UI is straightforward, and you get more possibilities with the extra features. LibreTube lets you download videos, and play them even when you’re offline.
Moreover, the app corrects one of the most annoying things about YouTube, the overbearing presence of ads. For those who enjoy listening to music on YouTube, it lets you play audio even if your screen is off or your laptop is closed. Add to that the possibility to create playlists, group the channels you’re subscribed to, comment and like videos with your Google account, so it doesn’t feel like a lesser version of YouTube.
