SmartTubeNext AKA SmartTube / Description

SmartTube (old name SmartTubeNext) is an advanced ad free YouTube app for Android TVs and TV boxes. Featuresno ads | SponsorBlock | adjustable playback speed | 4k and higher | 60fps | HDR | does not require Google Services | helpful international community.

SmartTube does not show any ad banners, preroll ads or ad intermissions. It not just tries to prevent them, it is literally programmed to be completely unable to display any ads, so YouTube cannot slip anything in. This also means you cannot allow ads or whitelist channels. Some YouTube channels include sponsored messages in their videos, these can also be skipped, see SponsorBlock below.
SmartTube includes a SponsorBlock integration. From the SponsorBlock website:
SponsorBlock is an open-source crowdsourced browser extension and open API for skipping sponsor segments in YouTube videos. [...] the extension automatically skips sponsors it knows about using a privacy preserving query system. It also supports skipping other categories, such as intros, outros and reminders to subscribe [and non-music parts in music videos].
You can select which categories you want to skip in the settings. Unlike the browser addon, in SmartTube you cannot submit new segments (TVs and TV remotes aren't great devices for such precise operations).
To cast videos from your phone (or other devices), you must link that device to your TV. Unlike the original YouTube app, SmartTube does not automatically show up when you are in the same wifi network. How to link your smartphone and TV:
open SmartTube and go to settings
go to "link devices" (2nd option)
open your YouTube app on your phone, go to settings > watch on TV
click on connect using TV-code and enter the code from your TV
Picture-in-Picture (PiP)
SmartTube supports playing videos in PiP mode. This needs to be enabled under Settings > General > Background playback > Picture in picture. The video will go into PiP mode when you press home while playing a video, and also when you press back if enabled in Settings > General > Background playback (activation).
Adjust Speed
You can adjust the playback speed pressing the speed-indicator icon (gauge) in the top row of the player. This is remembered across videos. Some speeds may case frame drops, this is a known issue.
Voice Search
To enable global voice search, an additional app must be installed alongside SmartTube. This bridge app can intercept the System's attempts to open the original YouTube app and open SmartTube instead. For this to work, you must uninstall the original YouTube app. We know this sucks, but you can always reinstall it if you change your mind. The bridge app will not show up in your launcher and you do cannot to launch it directly; it is only used internally by the system's voice search. On some devices, you need to explicitly say "Youtube" when searching (e.g. say "youtube cute cats" instead of just "cute cats").
On Amazon Fire TV, to enable voice search support you need to:
uninstall the original YouTube app (no root required on Amazon FireTV stick)
download and install the Amazon Bridge SmartTube app_https://kutt.it/stn_bridge_amazon (e.g. via Downloader for AFTVnews)
On all other Android devices, sadly root is required to enable this:
root your device (search for a guide for your specific device)
uninstall the official YouTube app using root (adb shell pm uninstall com.google.android.youtube.tv)
download and install the ATV Bridge SmartTube app_https://kutt.it/stn_bridge_atv (e.g. via Downloader for AFTVnews)
