Installed YouTube for Android TV 1.3.8 in Huawei EC6108V8 STB of UniFi HyppTV

The Huawei EC6108V8 set top box (STB) of TM UniFi HyppTV comes pre-installed with YouTube app that is not functioning, even though you've successfully make use of WiFi to connect the STB to the Internet.

Anyhow, I've installed YouTube for Android TV version 1.3.8 that can functioning well in the Huawei EC6108V8 STB.

You probably can't find this app in the pre-installed Google Play Store running in the Huawei EC6108V8 STB of UniFi HyppTV. You need to make use of the pre-installed web browser in the STB and visit to the URL below to download and install the YouTube for Android TV app:

Note that the pre-installed YouTube is a system app and you can't easily uninstall it. After installing YouTube for Android TV version 1.3.8, you will have 2 different YouTube app in the My Applications screen of the STB. Luckily they have different icon, so you can easily differentiate between them.

I have already updated to YouTube for Android TV 1.3.11 and it works well too.

Probably you can try this newer version as well.

Hi, I tried downloading this file using the hypptv browser, but it only says "Sorry, Does not support download".

What am I doing wrong? Appreciate your response

Install other browser into the box, don't use the default browser.

Alternatively, you can download using computer, and transfer the file using USB thumb drive.

Same issue here. All options in the sidebar will only show one preview in the main panel. Searching also only shows one result. Still, more functional than the stock app! Thanks for the help.

Hello all, nice discussion. But I am using G8 quad core for Linux Tv from “Gostreamer”which having features as speed up to 90% faster than Kodi on an Android-based box, 3D graphics along with crystal clear 4K UHD video streaming etc. This may be the solution of your problem.

Bro, thanks for your blog. I have read it but in my STB hypptv unifi, i don't see any you tube app, even per-installed you tube app.

@Ronie Minhaj-ul-Amin

The latest firmware has already removed the preinstalled Google Play Store and Youtube.

However, you can still use the above method to download and install the Youtube apk.
