I started this project to create a custom Yt channel app. I could’ve used YouTube data api. YouTube api is limited to 10K requests per day. That’s why I found another way to make the app function. It’s by using a separate database for our app and an admin app to add/edit videos in the user app. This project is made as an experiment and I know this can be improved in a lot of ways. I did my best to document everything I know. You can take your time to read this thread.
This is not in production state. You can contribute to this project. If you want to publish to the playstore with your channel. please make sure to follow these rules if you are going to. They mentioned YouTube API. But, It’s still recommended to follow.
Video Demo ( To see how functions work / animations work )
Project : Custom YT.aia (801.5 KB)
Demo : Custom YT Test.apk (7.8 MB)
Project : Custom_YT_Admin.aia (33.2 KB)
I cannot upload a demo app since It can collapse the database if multiple user tries to update/add videos
Yea, I have to credit alot of people for using their extensions and resources. I didn’t use any paid assets/extensions to make this App/Project.
I don’t own the logos/channel used in app. Since, this is not in production environment and I’ve used them since I was experimenting with them. I explained why I’ve used the extension and where I’ve used them.
