Team NewPipe's F-Droid repository allows for updates to NewPipe to be available faster than on the default F-Droid repository.
You will need to add our repository to your F-Droid client. We will only show steps for adding to the official F-Droid app. There are two ways to add an F-Droid repository.
In case NewPipe is already installed on your device, make sure to backup your application data. Uninstall NewPipe before proceeding and reinstall it once your are done following the instructions below. After that import your backup.
The first of these is by scanning QR code or clicking link.
Or you can add NewPipe manually.
Open your F-Droid client.
Go to settings and click Repositories.
Click the to add NewPipe's repository.
In the pop-up, after https:// paste the following link: copy me! You don't need to add to the fingerprint field as the link provided will automatically fill it.
Click OK. The repository will save and show it as unsigned until all repositories are refreshed. This is because the F-Droid app didn't compared the fingerprints yet. It will tell you if they do not match. If you want, you can also check it by hand:
Go to F-Droid's search and search for NewPipe and click the listing for NewPipe.
Scroll down to the versions tab. Expand both of the tabs for the highest numbers at the top. Press INSTALL on the one that says Repository: NewPipe upstream repository.
Note: If you have the official F-Droid version installed, you won't be able to see (or install) the Newpipe version because it has a different signature. To see it, enable "Include incompatible versions" from F-Droid settings. To install it, first make a database backup of your existing version, uninstall it, then install the new one and restore your backup (tutorial).
That's it! You've installed NewPipe from our F-Droid repository. You can now get updates in your F-Droid client.
