YouPlay YouTube Player: Beyond the standard YouTube experience

Let's be honest, YouTube is a staple in our lives. From music videos to in-depth tutorials, it serves as a vast entertainment and information hub. But sometimes, the standard YouTube interface feels a bit...well, standard. If you're looking for a way to elevate your YouTube experience, YouPlay YouTube Player might be the answer.

What sets YouPlay YouTube Player apart?

YouPlay YouTube Player offers a range of features that refine and expand upon the core YouTube experience.  Here's a breakdown of some of its biggest advantages:

  • Customization: YouPlay YouTube Player understands that not everyone wants a one-size-fits-all layout. You have considerable control over the player's appearance, from themes to video positioning.
  • Background play: Need to check a text or browse another app while a video is playing? YouPlay YouTube Player lets you enjoy background playback, so the audio keeps going even when the app isn't in the foreground.
  • Streamlined subscriptions: Subscribing and staying updated with your favorite channels is made incredibly easy with YouPlay YouTube Player. It creates a dedicated space for your subscriptions, keeping you in the loop.
  • Built-in downloader: Sometimes you come across a video so great, you want it offline. YouPlay YouTube Player includes a handy downloader, allowing you to save videos for later viewing.

Best alternatives

  • YouTube Premium: The official way to get background playback, ad-free viewing, and offline downloads (but comes at a subscription cost).
  • NewPipe: Open-source, lightweight YouTube alternative with similar features to YouPlay YouTube Player.
  • VLC Media Player: Versatile media player that can stream YouTube videos (requires you to find and input YouTube video URLs).

Our take

YouPlay YouTube Player provides genuine enhancements over the basic YouTube experience. Its features, particularly background playback, are incredibly convenient for serious YouTube users. However, the third-party nature and potential for increased ads bring some trade-offs.


Should you download it?

YES, if you want a free solution for background playback, customization, and offline video downloads, and you don't mind the potential extra ads and slightly more involved installation.

NO, if you prefer the simplicity of the official YouTube experience or want a guaranteed ad-free experience (YouTube Premium would be a better fit).
