How to launch
The full YouTube app is located in the STREAM section of the main menu, while the previous version of YouTube has been renamed to YouTube Lite - it is still available and contains only a search function, limiting content not intended for children (NOTE: using the built-in YouTube filter for children's content )
An internet connection is required to run YouTube. The first launch can take a long time - the program loads the necessary add-ons and components. It will be much faster next time.
You will have the option to log into your account or continue without it. You can log in to your account later.
We will skip authorization and sign in a little bit later.
Main screen, Menu, and Navigation.
On the main screen, YouTube shows the recommended videos.
You can use 5 buttons on the top side of the device and the STAR button on the right side of the device to control the app:
- UP / RIGHT / DOWN / LEFT - to navigate the main screen and menus
- CENTRAL BUTTON - to select a video or menu items and press the buttons on the screen that have focus, also pressing and holding the button for more than 2 seconds will bring up an additional menu to adjust the volume and close the application
- STAR - to go one step back.
To open the main menu, press LEFT until the focus moves to the far left, opening the YouTube main menu.
Here you can Sign in or manage your Account, navigate to Categories and Libraries and customize the YouTube app.
We need any browser on your phone, tablet, or computer to sign-in.
If you did not select authorization at the first start, you can go through it by selecting the Sign In item in the main menu.
Then you can sign-in by the code - select Sign In with a web browser.
Go to your browser at https://youtube.com/activate and enter the code that shows YouTube on the device.
Then you will need to sign in to the browser under your account, and the device will be automatically linked to it.
YouTube will now recommend videos to you based on your profile, subscriptions, and browsing history.
Subscriptions and History can be viewed in the Subscriptions and Library menus - the videos you uploaded are also available there.
Video launch and Player
To start a video, just select it on the main screen or library and press the CENTRAL BUTTON.
Sometimes it takes a long time to download and buffer the video and start watching.
To control the player, just press any button on the top panel of your device.
In the player menu, you can fast forward and rewind using the scroll line and LEFT / RIGHT buttons and start viewing by pressing the CENTER BUTTON.
Also, use a quick selection of another video in the video list located at the bottom of the screen.
Depending on the video, you can switch to a video channel, turn on subtitles, and manage additional settings.
The setting the video quality is very useful - with a slow Internet connection, we recommend choosing a lower quality.
You can also put Like or Dislike on the video.
To control the volume, press and hold the CENTRAL BUTTON for about 2 seconds. An additional menu will open in which you can adjust the volume. You can also close the YouTube app completely from this menu.
The menu will close automatically after a few seconds or it can be closed by pressing the LEFT button.
Exit the application
You can exit the application by pressing the STAR button on the right panel of your device or from the additional menu that was described above.
