Update 2017: The stock youtube app now gives you a few options for playback rate when you click on the three dot manu when playing a video, for most phones. One Way Download an external player that lets you control the speed, like BSplayer. Then in the youtube app when you get to the video you want to watch click the Share button and then select the ...

The location for those videos on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is as below: Internal storage/Android/data/com.google.android.youtube/files/Offline/(system generated folder name)/streams There might be a minor change to this location or path on other Android devices, but all those downloaded files are saved as .exo files, in an Internal Storage of a device! ...

This phenomenon is called audio feedback which usually occurs when the sound from the speakers reaches back into the microphone, and then gets amplified because of the speaker-mic loop. Common and general solutions are to cut off the loop, or at least reduce the loop gain by: Wearing earphone or headphone (isolate the speaker and the mic, prevent the ...

The YouTube app does not have that feature. However, it's available if you use a browser in desktop mode. Here's what it looks like on Chrome (on desktop mode):

Yes it is possible. I'm doing this with several devices for amateur radio and video production with KineMaster Pro. For amateur radio, I use the DigiMaster MiniProSC connected via OTG cable to a Nexus 9 via OTG cable. I also do this with SignaLink usb connected the same way. Both of these devices have internal usb sound cards with audio in, audio out, and ...

You can do that via adb or a terminal app (in the latter case, ommit the leading adb shell from the examples): read settings: adb shell getprop sys.usb.config find valid settings: adb shell grep usb.config= /init*rc change settings: setprop with the appropriate values (e.g. adb shell setprop sys.usb.config "mtp,adb" or adb shell setprop sys.usb.config "ptp,...

On Android Chrome 54, turn off autoplay of media by going to Settings - Site Settings - Media - Autoplay and Block autoplay. This feature is disabled if you have data compression enabled in your Android Chrome browser.

Before feedback cancellation techniques became common, such an effect would happen even with one pair of phones, e.g. phone A calling phone C. If both phones are on loudspeaker, then the signal emitted by the phone A would go into A's microphone and get transmitted to the phone C, where the same feedback between the loudspeaker and the microphone would re-...

Apparently YouTube videos downloaded for offline viewing get expired after a certain amount of time. I haven't heard anything official about though. The downloaded videos are stored in the internal storage but they are saved as .exo file format which only the YouTube app can open (you can't play them with any other media player app) The best advice I can ...

Using VLC player: play the video tap the screen to bring up the controls click the three dots button click the"playback speed" button adjust to 45 - 50% done It doesn't get you exactly the 24 fps but it's something! I would love to have a way to export the video at 24fps. Or better video editing for built-in Android apps.

Bad news it seems. Bug report on Google code The most relevant post is this: Yes. It is as design. "autoplay" is disabled for Chrome for Android It seems that Android 4+ changed the requirements for the play() method to require user interaction. Article on this issue It's worth nothing that many comments refer to getting it to work with a hack/...

Most smartphones have dedicated video encode and decode hardware. It's specifically designed for that task, and it has a fast connection to the memory, and often the decoded video frames can be accessed directly by the compositor hardware so they don't have to be copied (or blitted) into the framebuffer. You wouldn't be surprised that a handheld digital ...

The trick was to put the tablet into Airplane mode and then to take it out of Airplane mode again. Unlike just disconnecting and reconnecting the wifi link, this actually unloads and reloads the wifi stack. Since I did this, it plays videos from youtube, iPlayer, etc just fine.

I had the same promblem. A solution which worked for me was an app "MP4Fix", which you can get in google play for free. It repaired my video in a few sec and placed it in different folder (it kept corrupted video in the same place and also created new repaired one). I know this info might be too late for you but it might help some others.

Starting from Chrome 47, there's a Chrome flag that is used to turn media autoplay on/off: Disable gesture requirement for media playback. Disable user gesture requirement for playing media elements. Activating this will allow autoplay to work. You can see it by going to this link: chrome://flags/#disable-gesture-requirement-for-media-playback; The default ...

I am afraid to say this but moving videos between devices is not supported, Yet, AFAIK. Here are few technical details. When user download those videos, using official YouTube app, Android saves those videos on Internal storage(and not on external store such as sd-card)of the device. The path can be something like below: Internal storage/Android/data/...

I just realized that when you move two fingers up and down the left side of the screen (like when you adjust brightness, but with two fingers) the playback speed adjusts accordingly.

You say "Tasker doesn't seem a solution". If you already have Tasker installed you can do the following: Create a task with 6 actions that puts the names of the files in the camera folder into an array, then loops through the array moving files one by one depending on the filename extention. Note, in the IF statements, ~ means Matches, and !~ means Doesn't ...

This is only any use to you if your PC has an HDMI input, which is very unusual. You'll only have such a thing if you deliberately bought video capture hardware and attached it to your PC. If you have such hardware, you should use the video capture software that came with it. Trying to use Camtasia to capture it would be like trying to use Camtasia to ...

You can use this online tool to convert it: http://www.giftovideo.com/ Regarding tools, you could use FFMPEG + ImageMagick, but it's kind of tricky finding the correct options. There is some instructions here. I tried but some of the cases didn't work.

This can be turned on/off in Chrome using flags. This is on the user end though and cannot be change in the browser from a website or app. You can also do this in your own app using the api for webview or websettings and make "getMediaPlaybackRequiresUserGesture(false)" it is by default set to "(true)" http://developer.android.com/reference/android/webkit/...

As I mentioned in the comments, you can use IP webcam apps on Play Store and then turn your mobile easily into a webcam and record your computer's screen using a video recording software. This way you can rely on your computer's memory instead of your mobile's storage(which is limited in most cases). Now you can use your phone as a webcam peripheral device ...

VLC for Android plays media from SMB shares. I use VLC on my tablet, my little Android set top box and about to put it on my firesticks. I also use VLC on my Windows and Linux PC's.

The compression is actually performed by your carrier. Almost all mobile network carriers compress images to reduce bandwidth use on slow mobile connections. You can avoid the compression by switching to a Wi-Fi network, or using an HTTPS connection to the website you want: since HTTPS is secured from interception, the carrier can't replace the pictures ...

This issue of video stopping at the size ~3.80GB seems to be file size restriction embedded in the camera app, irrespective of the filesystem your SD card has, or the space left in it. (Note that some camera apps also has a default limitation of 1-hour video duration, however, it is not related to the relevant issue here.) My default camera app in OnePlus ...

It seems that YouTube Offline feature is expected to work that way, in specific regions/countries. In India, those offline videos are not removed at all(unless YOU remove them or uninstall updates of YouTube app or if you connect the device to internet even once during the 48-hour window, the YouTube app will be able to verify the status and will refresh ...

I personally use MX Player, and it does what you say very well. It has support for locked screen audio playback, background play of audio from videos, pop-up videos and others. Downside is that the free version is ad-supported. Also, it needs a plugin for DTS/AC3 audio. The background play setting is not enabled by default, and has to be enabled by the user,...
