You can now login on DTube with the Steem Keychain extension

작년

Even though d.tube is a safe domain, it's still a hurdle to have to copy paste your posting key in every steem web-app to login. SteemConnect was there, but it had security and user experience flaws from the start.

Keychain improves the STEEM login experience in the same way metamask does for the Ethereum blockchain. It stores your keys safely in a browser extension and provides simplistic methods for UI developers to send live transactions. Keychain is a conjoint effort by many high-profile Steemians/witnesses: @aggroed, @stoodkev, @yabapmatt and @eonwarped. It is available for most mainstream browsers (chrome, firefox, brave, opera) and many of the top STEEM apps are already using Keychain, such as SteemMonsters, SteemPeak, or DrugWars, and now DTube!

If Keychain is installed on your browser, DTube's login page will now show it as the default login method.



You will still need to enter your username you want to log in with, then keychain will open a popup asking for you to confirm the login.



Feel free to tick the 'do not prompt me again' to avoid this extra confirmation for the d.tube domain in the future.

Once this is done, the experience will be the same as normal, without ever having to copy paste your posting key again.

This feature was added to DTube's source code by @vaultec, so he will receive 100% of the rewards of this post. The feature was added yesterday on the website already, so I bet a few people already tried it, please give us some feedback in the comments. Also, do you think should we deprecate SteemConnect now?

Awesome, do you have plans on implementing other things @vaultec is working on in the future as well? :)

·

We talked a bit together and I guess something like a 'Community Upload Servers' function will exist in the future, if that's what you're talking about..

Yeah, he calls it by another name, but that's what I had in mind yes. :)

Definitely, lots of changes are planned. Will be merged into the main source branch once finalized.

Reading this is music to my eyes. :)

Steemconnect should definitely be deprecated. Especially with things such as sc3 (fees), unknown bugs/sessions expiring.

Yeah you're right. But it still causes issues with that thus should be deprecated. Considering fees and being a centralized entity.

For usage in dtube. Other apps have that choice.

Nice! Did something change in Keychain? I remember it was announced and I installed it in browser couple of months back..then there were no news at all...and now suddenly, dtube and also steempeak implenmented it within one month I feel...anyway, awesome news! it's suuupereasy to use :)

·

No particular reason for why we are adding it in now. I wanted to do it since it got released. I think things just take a bit of time :)

That is really nice and i have heard of keychain a lot more time and i think now I really need look upon it...so that i can access everything easily without even sacrificing my accounts safety.

Yes, it's hard for humans to spot phishing websites which could be trying to steal your keys, that's why an extension is generally considered safer to keep your keys in. If you want to be 100% secure, I recommend installing the extension from the github source, instead of from the extension store. This way, it will not auto-update and you are sure to be running the open source code.

Things are really getting better and easier! Glad that @dtube is so dynamic in their function.

We love dtube, and we love Steem

I think you should continue offering SteemConnect @dtube. I still use SteemConnect and I think many others do too. Some people aren't comfortable with browser extensions for things like keys.

P.S. I tried to upload a video about an hour ago and it worked, but the 720p Hash didn't load properly and is just blank. Can you give me any advice? @dtube @vaultec @graylan

I used Handbrake and used the correct settings with 720p and I have an excellent Internet connection with a 40 Mbps + upload speed.

Please let me know if anything can be done to ensure it won't happen again. I tried to upload it once before and all the Hashes failed to load (just blank hashes). This was the second time and the 720p failed to load this time so I just submitted it anways. It was my wife's video on her @emaferice acccount.

Wow this is fantastic you guys really working hard .

Steemit Inc seriously needs to hurry up already and adopt Steem Keychain as an officially supported means of interacting with the Steem blockchain. Paging @ned to make that happen. As a developer myself who is privacy-focused, I believe it is crucial that keys are not typed or copied and pasted, nor stored anywhere other than the user's machine or browser.

STINC needs to throw some funds or development resources at making it even better. I refuse to use SteemConnect anymore if I can avoid it and use Keychain.

Thanks for this wonderful update and improvement on @dtube login. I wil definitely try it soon and give @dtube the feedback..
Special thanks to the steem witness @aggroed @stoodkev @yabapmatt @eonwraped
Also @vaultec. Job weldone 👍👍👍👍

It is always time to refuse SteemConnect. It is necessary to let the new version work. Thanks for the information

Nice update, already logged in dtube with keychain.

Love the new developments

Does this password program allow my private keys to be taken remotely by hackers (or anyone who physically accesses my hard drive)?

·

It has password protection/encryption.

Posted using Partiko Android

·

But somebody with my hard drive would have access to my DTube and Steemit accounts, if I use Keychain to save my keys, right?

This is a convenience boost coming at the expense of safety, right?

·

·

It's encrypted so even if they did have access to your hard drive it would be useless without a password.

Hi Everyone,
I have problem with D.Tube, all I can do it's just play with Main Page, search engine is not working at all. Please, any ideas ?

Search / Related Videos has been broken since the AskSteem shutdown (we were reliant on this for DTube).

A solution is in the works and will be in the next patch ;)

Sigan fuertes, apoyo total a Dtube.

Please do NOT deprecate SteemConnect!
I've always used SteemConnect for Login.

What if my device and/or webbrowser doesn't support the Keychain extension?

Also, what about the users who don't want or aren't allowed to install Keychain (e.g. because they're using someone else's computer)?

Do these people have to use the website's own login feature, which is likely to be less secure than SteemConnect?

Great work.Good news for dtubers. Is it's security is stronger than steemconnect?

It works differently, here you keep control of your own keys inside a browser extension, but yes.

Hey, I am trying to use this feature but it isnt working. I have keychain installed on my chrome browser but when I try to login, I dont get that option to login with keychain. I can only login by copying my posting key or via steemconnect.

Any ideas?

There is no app of steem keychain in play store?

·

No, it's a browser extension, not a mobile app. So you need to search for it in the google chrome or firefox extensions depending on which one you use.

I did not find the play store, so I asked. Tomorrow I will try to use crome steam keychain. Thanks for your information

Why can't I upload the videos.It shows totally blank on the upload page .

Posted using Partiko Android

How frustrating it is, uploaded video approx 5 to 6 times and still it says please upload video before submitting.
Is this a bug?

Hello Dtube, I was wondering how to get a curated upvote from @dtube ? Not asking now for one, but I made my first video today and have no clue how it works. Thanks for any help!!!

Please keep Steemconnect.

That's fascinating. How long will videos survive now?

Posted using Partiko Android

·

Still just 2 or 3 weeks, long enough for your viewers to see them, but not long enough to be a resource on the internet, a source of knowledge, or proof you existed.

·
·

Exactly the reason why dTube is pretty much useless for anyone wanting to create a library of content here. Worthless videos of "in the moment" content won't make this a good option for millions trying to get out of the corporate censorship morass.

·
·
·

You can host the video files yourself via certain types of software. Or use a service that hosts for you such as @onelovedtube. Dtube cannot support the masses of videos however I am working to solve this problem in the future.

Is Keychain extension compatible with mobile Chrome or mobile Firefox?

Posted using Partiko Android

Hello @dtube. Would like to ask if the previous videos we uploaded gets deleted after being inactive? There's no videos showing on my dtube acct anymore so I was wondering if that's the case. 🤔 I believe I have a few there last year but now there's nothing.

Hi there. Is this link safe to follow? It is from steemitboard: https://v2.steemconnect.com/sign/account-witness-vote?witness=steemitboard&approve=1

Hello @dramamask,

Yes this link is safe. It uses Steem Connect to easily perform actions on the blockchain.
Feel safe to use it if you want to vote for @steemitboard as a witness.

Hi, I lost my D.tube private key due to the Verification step crashing when I tried to claim my account. I had saved the text file but the keys are wrong. I heard about something called Mainnet reset, will I be able to claim it then? Currently I can upload videos via Steemit but nobody can see my channel, including me. Thanks for any help.

Yes I agree and an easy way to connect your con is efficient.
Good the proposal ...
