Installation

Requirements

Application is built using latest APIs, that’s why for now only recent software versions: iOS/tvOS 15 or macOS Monterey are supported.

How to install?

You can sideload IPA files that you can download from Releases page.
Alternatively, if you have to access to the beta AltStore version (v1.5), you can add the following repository in Browse > Sources screen: https://alt.yattee.stream

Manual installation

Download sources and compile them on a Mac using Xcode, install to your devices. Please note that if you are not registered in Apple Developer Program then the applications will require reinstalling every 7 days.

Integrations

Firefox

You can use Privacy Redirect extension to make the videos open in the app. In extension settings put the following URL as Invidious instance: https://r.yatte.stream

macOS

With Finicky you can configure your systems so the video links across the entire system will get opened in the app. Example configuration:
