We first featured SteroTube Player back when it launched for the BlackBerry PlayBook, however the developer recently dropped me a line to let me know that the BlackBerry 10 version is now available and OMG - I love it!

I tend to watch quite a lot of music videos/live performances on YouTube and with StereoTube not only can you watch/listen to videos but you can also download them straight to your BlackBerry 10 smartphone! Even better is that you get the choice whether to download them as video or MP3.

Using the app is really simple and there are plenty of gestures that have been incorporated such as swiping left and right to move tracks or pinching the display to make the video go full screen.

If you like to create playlists of your favorite tunes then this is the perfect application for it as there are no limits to the amount you can build. The BlackBerry's hardware media controls have full functionality within the app and in addition if you minimize the app while listening to a tune you will get a nice Active Frame showing the music track you are listening to.

Features of the app include:

  • You can create unlimited number of playlists with unlimited songs in each of them
  • Smart search engine that finds only those videos that are relevant to you
  • DOWNLOAD YouTube™ videos to mp3 or mp4 so you can listen music while offline!!
  • Listen to audio files stored on your phone, supported formats: .aac, .mp3, .amr, .flac, .m4a, .mka, .ogg, .wav, .wma
  • Watch video files, supported formats: .3gp , .3g2, .asf, .f4v, .m4v, .mkv, .mpeg, .wmv, .avi, .mp4
  • Mix YouTube™ videos with your mp3s or video files to create awesome playlists!
  • NO ADS when playing YouTube Videos!
  • Put your phone in standby and keep listening( BACKGROUND playing for YouTube, Audio or Video files)!
  • It supports using the hardware buttons: play/pause, volume up/down
  • The title of the current song is displayed on the Active Frame, when the app is minimized
  • BB10 native app and interface - Very easy to use and intuitive graphical interface(checkout the screenshots)
  • Player can be controled via touch GESTURES (play/pause - tap, next - swipe right, previous - swipe left, fullscreen - pinch in/out)
  • Discover related songs every time you watch a YouTube video
  • Search through literally millions of songs, listen for free!
  • Rearrange(sort) songs in playlists
  • Shuffle
  • Repeat
  • 100% instant REFUND if you are not satisfied with the app - no questions asked!
  • FREE updates for life
  • FREE SUPPORT by email 24/7

Priced at £2.50/$3.99 this one is a real bargain for you music lovers - trust me. Oh, and if you watch the above video please forgive my music choices!

This is so awesome!

I have a question - Is it legal to download videos of youtube? Isn't that piracy?

bb10_fan

He doesn't do it directly from YouTube which makes it legal I suppose :)

z1nsane

I believe it's illegal to download COPYRIGHTED media (meaning you can probably download videos from YouTube stars). That said, there are probably terms in an agreement when you get the app that you're not downloading copyrighted material and that the app developer does not take responsibility for illegal usage by the app purchaser.

Rootbrian

As far as I know, if you download it (the videos) with the purposes of SELLING them, that is illegal. If you're downloading the videos to listen to them, or share, that's perfectly legal.

tangyorangesour

hmm...if that was the case - why was napster plugged for good. A peer to peer system was only meant for sharing.

Rootbrian

I guess they got bought out.

Rootbrian

It's only Illegal if you try to SELL what you downloaded. In this case, it's perfectly legal.

A native app ..... good stuff

Not free for playback owners though like some apps are.

That's true and to be fair you wouldn't get an Iphone app for free just because you bought the ipad one, and we should support native developers.

Very good support, same day reply. My silly mistake, not the applications fault.

Play lists are great. I can see my self using this app a lot!!!

Thanks Andrei.

DJRikko

Does this work for other videos that are not music related?

andrei_avram

Yes! They work for the entire YouTube, even VEVO videos!

James, great article and video, thanks a lot!

Thank you guys for your appreciation, it means a lot to me. Also please write a review on BlackBerry World if you like the app.

A fantastic app... downloaded yesterday love it even though it's a battery drainer...

Posted via CB10

andrei_avram

Yes the app works fine for any kind of video from YouTube.

Posted via CB10

derizzle

Fantastic app... downloaded it yesterday and worth the money... it does drain your battery very quickly as on continuous play for 1 hr... had from 99% to 52%... lucky for me I had a spare battery...

Posted via CB10

proudtobe_bb

Does this app like vlc, in the sense you can play almost any video file? Would love this if so...

Posted via CB10

andrei_avram

The supported video files are listed in the app description, but yes it can play mostly all kind of video files and audio plus YouTube.

Posted via CB10

walt63

This is a cool app. I use it in my PlayBook.

andrei_avram

The battery drain is not necessarily related to the app, it's just that streaming from Internet drains battery quite quickly. I recommend using a WiFi when possible for the YouTube videos.

App is gone from BlackBerry World :(

Legal?

Posted via CB10

Playbook007

Why would it be different than using a computer to watch YouTube videos. Have it on the PlayBook. Great for parties and throwing up music videos on the big screen. Vevo has better quality videos than YouTube but Vevo is glitchy for some reason. Also Vevo doesn't have older videos. The other thing I like about stereo tube is that it seems to offer better quality videos faster, than searching via YouTube itself. Has anyone else noticed this?

It's only ILLEGAL if you SELL the videos that you downloaded.

Rootbrian

It's perfectly legal as long as you don't try to sell the videos that you downloaded.

andrei_avram

BlackBerry doesn't allow illegal apps on BlackBerry World. :)

Posted via CB10

Rootbrian

And it's not an illegal application or there wouldn't be any apps anywhere to even download youtube (or any other) videos for that matter.

sklotz2000

Looking good Andrei!!

I'm hoping to have my Z10 in-hand on Thursday or Friday. StereoTube will go on soon after. You make some GREAT native apps. Keep 'em coming!

Icarus3000

I'm looking for 2 features in a media player, and am hoping someone can tell me if these are included in this app before I shell out $3.99:

1. Can it create play lists from folders?
2. Can you save bookmarks of audio and video files?

Thanks!

bbfanboi

I'm getting this! I own it on my PlayBook, but I must have the BB10 version. Thanks to Andrei Avram for this.

Hey CrackBerry, why don't you do some developer profiles. There are some great small-time developers that are really doing some good stuff. Their work should be spotlighted so the community can support those who are doing an awesome job bringing cool apps to the platform.

Downloaded this yesternight! This is one of my most used apps.

You can use listentoyoutube.com in your browser and do the same thing. ;)

The app is a lot more than just a mp3 ripper of YouTube videos.

This is not just a downloader. It's a full-on player and a downloader.

Any other YouTube downloaders out there for the Z10?!

kelton

The ability to handle all of those cool music formats is very cool. .ogg and .flac is good stuff.
Does the BB10 phone play these formats natively anyway?
(I do not yet have my BB10 phone)

AjaxMilanBarcaSC

haha you said Blackberry App World again!

capitald4

Would it play flv videos?

Posted via CB10

andrei_avram

No, unfortunately the .flv files are not supported yet. They will be in a future update.
Anyway, I advise you to not play too much .flv files because they are not decoded via hardware, but via software, that means that it will drain your battery a lot more faster.

Kurt Windibank

Native app...congrats..you get my money.

Well done.

I only give my money to native app developers...period.

Codeworks

Probably 75% of the videos I go to play say, "Sorry, this video is not available on this device". Am I doing something wrong?

andrei_avram

No, there must be a temporary issue with your network, just try again a little bit later, or try to on a WiFi. I just checked the videos you emailed me and they all work fine.

MondoB

Good app. I like the playlist and download features. But when I load a playlist with my own music, set it to shuffle, and start playing, it won't start the next song after the backlight goes out and the screen locks. I have to swipe up to unlock the screen, then the next song starts. Am I missing something?

andrei_avram

I'll check what you said and if it's a problem, be sure I'll fix it in the update, next week. Thanks!

MondoB

+1 for a quick reply. Thanks.

andrei_avram

It was a problem, indeed. I fixed it and next week you should receive the update. Thanks for letting me know about the problem!

BlueRocks

I bought this for the PlayBook as I was really looking for something better than the default music player. There is one small problem that prevents me from using this app to listen to my music.
I have 2346 songs on my PlayBook in 400 folders - arranged by artist. Within each of those folders, the music is sub-divided by album.
So in order to add my music to SteroTube this is the process:
1. Select Browse icon at top in app.
2. Select Media Sync folder.
3. Select Artist.
4. Select Album.
5. Wait for song list to populate - tap screen if nothing shows up (that will make it appear).
6. Tap Song to select.
7. Repeat step 6 for all songs.
8. Tap 'Add selected & continue adding'.
9. Tap 'Go Up' icon to go back to Album selection panel.
10. Repeat steps 4 thru 9 for remaining Albums for that Artist.
11. Tap 'Go Up' icon to go back to Artist selection panel.
12. Repeat steps 3 thru 11 for remaining 400 artists.
Neddless to say, I have not loaded up my entire collection.

All this and I will say that StereoTube is INCREDIBLE for watching YouTube videos, finding similar music videos, and downloading them to my PlayBook. I have used this functionality extensively and quite successfully.

If I could load my own music in it would be my go to mujsic app and an easy buy for my Z10. Actually, I will buy it again for my Z10 for the YouTube downloading functionality alone!

andrei_avram

The issue you raised will be fixed with the next updates, in both versions of the app.

BlueRocks

Thanks. That is great to hear. I look forward to it.
Keep up the great work.

derizzle

I had a minor problem using this app... so emailed the Dev, he responded lightening quick and resolved my probz... worth the few quids I spent on this app... it is such an amazing app... and plus the Dev is so helpful guess that is the most important thing...

Downloaded because of this article. Wondering once I download the .mp3, is there a way so that in the music player I can rename the file to pick up the artist? Can't figure it out right now so everything is just under "Unknown" in the music player.

tfrankson

Looks awesome, going to purchase now. Thanks for the vid review

I tried to download it on my Z10 but it says that application is not for sale...

kthhrrsn

I just downloaded it on my PlayBook! I ignored this app until I just read this article. I like the fact that I can create an unlimited number of playlists, which the Playbook media player only supports one playlist. That's such a dumb limitation- especially since every BB that I've owned for at least the past 5 years (maybe more) has been able to support multiple playlists.

stacym75

Hi Andrei. Trying to purchase but I'm getting an error message. Application not for sale. Can you tell me how I can buy the app please?

For the moment the app it's not available for sale anymore. Hopefully it will be available soon. Sorry about this.

iNeoEon

Illegal? that's why it's already not available now... I guess... link in this page worked fine yesterday but doesn't anymore now!

We need tools, not toys.

kawikaratekid

Thats unfortunate... is there any other way to get this app?

Posted via CB10

andrei_avram

For the moment no. In a way or another the app will be available again, that's for sure. Maybe BB will force me to make some changes, but it's coming back 100%.

Graheem

Is this not available in Canada?? I can't find it on my phone, nor in appworld on pc (Z10/Canada).

Graheem

When I click on the link it takes me to appworld where I get message "There was a problem loading Page, due to a network error.". Telus Canada.

Also won't show for me in appworld on PC.

The app is not that good. I purchased it on my playbook and I will not pay again for the same mediocre software. Sorry

Rootbrian

Do you honestly think there are alternatives to this fully blown download and media playing application? I'm sorry, but if you can't appreciate or support a developer's HARD WORK then it sure must suck to be you! That isn't mediocre, IT'S HARD WORK!! Andre did so much to make this app.

andrei_avram

Thank you Brian!
I worked a lot to make this app, indeed, and I keep working on it everyday. I can't wait to make the app available again so everyone can enjoy it.

andrei_avram

The will be available again starting next week. It will include several new features, optimizations and some fixes. Sorry for the delay.

nicholadia

Hi. I downloaded the app more than a week ago and I find it awesome. I just did a security wipe earlier and after I setup everything, I can't find the application anymore in BlackBerry World. When It reappears in BlackBerry world, do I still need to pay for it again or it will it automatically recognize my ID and let me download it again? Please let me know thanks.

Any plans on a discounted price when its back? £2.50 is very steep for an app....

Yes, the app will be cheaper starting next week, when it will be available again .

It's available again, however, the download tab has been removed. I understand now. It's alright, the app itself is still awesome. Thanks for developing..

andrei_avram

Hello everyone,
The app is finally available again!
http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/25493893/?lang=en&countr...
I was forced by BlackBerry to remove the download feature....but if you bought the app with that feature will NOT lose it if you update!
I added YouTube video quality selection and YouTube account login - you can fully sync your YouTube playlists - including adding/deleting/sorting songs and create new/delete YouTube playlists! The most awesome use case is to create a bunch of playlists on your computer and then open the app, sign in to YouTube(from the Settings page) and you'll have your playlists on your phone! You can keep adding songs to your playlists, they will instantly appear on the main YouTube page... I think you get the idea :)

The app is also 25% cheaper for a limited time! Only 2.99$!

Aww man was hoping to grab this and add music to my library.... did it save to the device memory or could it have saved to external?

Posted via CB10

The download feature is removed for the moment, until I sort things out with BlackBerry...
