I think NewPipe should start being a bit careful of the feature creep

I agree. I would rather have liked a plugin system. It would have allowed to provide this feature and keeping a core that do one thing and do it good. I think it would be really hard to design, though.

I fear that the core application may become too hard to maintain, and hope not.

I agree somewhat, though I like how it’s not an “in your face” feature creep with the options being hidden behind the drop down menu by default.

I’m torn on the Bandcamp inclusion, I like buying music there and they limit how many times you can listen to a release before buying; hopefully this doesn’t incentivise a drop in purchases but rather an increase in mindshare/availability.

I agree, I also like buying music there and like the fact that bandcamp provide a full preview feature.

I just tried the newpipe bandcamp inclusion and I couldn’t find a “buy” button that would redirect to the bandcamp buying page, only a download button. Therefore, I don’t think it will really encourage to buy music on bandcamp 😐

I would prefer the music to be (legally) made available for everyone without DRMs and have a new funding model for the art industry, of course. But for now the best available system is platforms with no DRM like bandcamp and I have mixed feelings about adding the bandcamp feature without providing a button to buy the music you listen.

Well, I wouldn’t worry about the buy button, there is not even an artist or album page so far, everything is very new, so once that is added they will probably add that.

Yeah I agree, bandcamp is one of the few good places to buy music and it feels kind of shitty to abuse it. Maybe that’s just internalized consumerism speaking though.

everyone seems to be hesitant on the Bandcamp inclusion but I love it! I have heard of Bandcamp but never really knew how to navigate or find stuff, so now I’ll be able to actually preview stuff and find new music! plus, love the color choice for Bandcamp…altho all good points and hopefully kept in mind for future updates

I wouldve like it more if they would have forked and start from there, campfore which is the other Bandcamp client doesnt looks as nice as NewPipe. It is starting to get a bit bloaty and it will be hard to maintain.
