Best YouTube client available

Like that when I split screen apps and when I maximize the video it stays within its half of the screen, unlike the web browser which will go full screen no matter what. Full integration with my subscriptions, very surprised and happy with this. Flows very well on the contrary to some other reviews. Then again, maybe depends on hardware (running on surface book). Only problem is that some videos I try to watch that are age-gated on YouTube are unable to play. Using free version, so maybe only a pro feature.

Best YouTube video player and downloader.

Better than UmmyVideo. Streamlined like an application should be and full of options. Pro is $2.99 but basic is free. This is not a "playlist" player! There are other apps for that. Great quality!

A Triumphant Return!

Honestly, I found Hyper better than actually going to Youtube's website and now it's back and even better. If Hyper could play the videos and music on my hard drive I'd remove all other media application on my laptop...maybe even get rid of my Zune HD as well.

Fed UP!!

I absolutely HATE the current format of this app, I have it ONLY of necessity and wish there were some way to return to the previous version. This way is awkward and makes little sense--i.e. a waste of time compared to the original!

Can not seem to find the options to shuffle and repeat a playlist. Does not "flow" as well as the actual YouTube page. Overall, not a very well planned out or streamlined app. Not worth downloading.

Free Edition-- Excellent App -- 64-bit Win 8.1

Although in the settings menu, you can select to view videos in a specific region or worldwide, there are few videos the app will declare as (unavailable) --even though they have no age restriction and play fine in a regular browser. The new minimized playback UI of a YouTube video is clean and has a shaded menu to view separately comments, related videos...etc. Also, the app's player may automatically revert to the lowest viewing quality resolution when it detects slow net speed; trying to change it back to high quality doesn't work all the time. Also, if a download fails, it gives a message with a different, maybe previously watched video title that failed--NOT the actual failing video. Having said that, this is still the best Youtube app for downloading both videos and audio files, that I tried so far. Note: Audio files by default are downloaded as m4a files; however, for added compatibility, you can set it up to download them as mp3 files in the [ settings > downloads ] options.

All fixed.

All fixed. Every time I select 1080p resolution a message pops up telling me to upgrade to the pro version. I have already purchased it. Well ok, I don't mind supporting the developer once again, so I clicked get pro, the screen goes darker then returns to normal and nothing happens. As it stands right now, Hyper is not usable for me. I hope there is a fix n the works, as this was one of the best YouTube players on windows universal platform.

Reporting some issues

Issue #1 Some videos show the error "Item Unavailable", but they're fine on the website. Can these errors provide more information? Issue #2 When you go back to the Home Screen after a while, it shows "No results to display.". Re-clicking the home button doesn't refresh the page, took me a while to notice the refresh button. It works, but maybe also allow the home button to refresh the page? Issue #3 When scrolling through a channel's videos (the "Uploads" tab), I often accidentally "overscroll" to the other tabs since the video list hasn't completely loaded. Can there be an option to disable scrolling to the other tabs? Issue #4 Facebook's Messenger app doesn't show up in the share menu, which party is responsible for this?
