OGYouTube was developed by Osama Ghareeb. This is a sleek app that works with you having to root your phone. The user interface is almost exactly like the official YouTube app. It allows you to background play vides as audio and also play music in the background.
Because it shares the interface of the official app, you would not miss out on any of the functionalities you may need like Chromecast Support. You cannot find on Google Play store so I can not exactly say that it is virus or malware-free or has the backing of Google.
It also allows you to convert any video format on YouTube on other video streaming sites.
Inbuilt Video Downloader
This is the most used feature in OGYouTube as it is the main feature of the app. It allows its users to download videos that are meant for streaming for them to be able to watch it offline. Unlike the official YouTube app, videos would be available to download watch without expiration date.
When downloading, the user would be able to pick the most suitable quality inconsideration with network and data connections. You can download as high as 720p resolution quality.
Video to Audio converter
There is much time when you would like to download audios instead of videos but the audio file is not available. OGYouTube will allow you to download the mp3 of the video by converting the video to audio for you. By simply enabling the mp3 format download, you can download a video as audio instead.
Easy to use Interface
The user interface is very similar to the official YouTube app, which means it is as easy to use as the normal YouTube app is as easy. Without knowing most information about the app or without being a video professional, anybody can use the app.
It is very easy to navigate and move around the app. Suitable for beginners and novices; anybody can download videos as long as they can use the official YouTube app.
Supports YouTube sign-in
Just like when using the official YouTube, the OGYouTube would require you to sign in with your YouTube credentials. This way, you would be able to access our subscription, videos, preferences and many more. It makes the app behave the way your personalized YouTube would function.
When you log in to your Gmail or YouTube account, it would be able to behave like YouTube and narrow download your recommended videos using your account cookies and search patterns.
Background Play and Pop-up playback
OGYouTube allows you to play audio or video in the background while you do something else on your device. It gives room for multitasking. While your background plays your videos or audio, it would allow you to even control play.
You can pause, play, tweak the volume and many more. OGYouTube is the modded version of YouTube because it lets you enjoy the additional features absent in the official YouTube app such as the background play or Pop up playback.
There are lots of videos that are not in the language a user would understand. Most of these videos have a translated subtitle linked with them. OGYouTube makes it possible for you to download these subtitles for better understand.
Unlike on the official YouTube app which you can only access online while watching the video, This app helps to break the language barriers within videos and enhances better understanding for its users
When in the background play mode, you would still be able to control the app. Either to increase or reduce volume, increase or reduce brightness or change the content playing to the next on the list.
This feature is limited to Android users only as the side buttons can also work as well unlike with those using their pc.
When downloading videos or music while using the OGYouTube app, you can add more files to download. Instead of having to queue the contents you are trying to download at the same time.
The app supports multiple downloads and saves files on your internal storage which you can rename later. Unlike normal downloads that have a download limit, most times these limits do not exceed 6. With OGYouTube, you can download as many files as possible at the same time.
Depending on your internet connection, your speed would depend on this as well.
