I merged several topics into one, renamed it and put that into the development-forum. Perhaps there is a way to legally tap into YT, Apple Music or Spotify.
This may be possible with Neutron someday. But for now it lends more credibility to the very real potential that Neutron has for your local media. :)

For now I can outline a workaround for YouTube : install the FireFox browser, add the "Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express" extension, download the music as mp4, extract audio in aac format via ffmpeg -hide_banner -i "${inpNam}" -vn -acodec copy "${outNam}", tag the aac file, if need be create a cue file to partition into tracks.

Hello,

I am using Neutron Player for quite a while now, mainly due to its sophisticated DSP - for use on headphones/earphones EQ.

I was wondering, whether it was possible to route all Android OS audio through Neutron's DSP engine? I recently learned iOS, sadly, does not allow for such a system-wide operation.

At least, routing NewPipe's audio through Neutron Player should technically be possible; even on unrooted Android devices. If this already works as of version 2.20.3, please move this post to Support forum. :D

Some information regarding the "Use external audio player" option in NewPipe:

Thank you!

Afaik this isn't possible :

Because there's no way that an app could put itself into the flow of audio data from another app to the DAC ( digital-analog converter ). Now there are equalizer apps, but all these equalizer apps are nothing more than fancy user interfaces for the equalizer functionality that's built into the operating system.

why do you think that should be possible ?

Now there are developers who claim to have done that, e.g. PowerAmp has created an independent equalizer app, but if I understood it correctly that is quite a tricky business and would only ever work with the subset of source applications that would provide very specific interfaces. And yes, that might include YouTube.
