  • YourTube - Download YouTube Videos FROM YouTube.app


    UPDATE: It's out.

    Remember MxTube? MxTube is officially extinct. Another victim of survival the fittest. YourTube will be available via CydiaStore sometime in the Very Near Future IS NOW AVAILABLE in the Cydia Store, and my goodness is it brilliant. We got ahold of an early tester version, and it's everything a YouTube downloader should be.

    For starters, it's A PART OF YouTube.app. Well, technically it's an extension using MobileSubstrate (saurik's magic doorway to the iPhone for devs), built by pumpkin - point being, it integrates seamlessly with YouTube.app. And it works beautifully...

    Say, for instance, I just love SNL's Mother Lover bit (I do). And I'd like to have it on my phone, or desktop, regardless of whether I'm connected to the net. What do I do? With YourTube installed, I just open YouTube.app, and find the video like I would normally. Click on the little blue arrow next to the video (which is always there), and... what's this? A new button in the top right - download. Press that, and (if there's multiple qualities up) I'm asked if I'd like to download the High Quality or Low Quality version of the app. Well thanks, YourTube, I'll take the High Quality version.



    The same cute familiar animation you'd see in iTunes.app when you choose a song appears, the video jumps down to my Downloads tab, and if I tap that tab... there it is. Coming down quite nicely. I can even swipe to cancel or delete.



    The quality is even better than you'd expect (much better than on 3G, which always shoots me the Low Quality version - unless I'm running 3G Unrestrictor), and all downloads are viewed/managed from within YouTube.app itself from the Downloads tab.



    The downloaded movies are in an .mp4 format, so any iPhone file browser should be able to play them as well as YouTube.app itself. Of course, if you're the SSH type who'd prefer to grab them yourself and toss 'em to your desktop, check out /var/mobile/Media/Downloads/YourTube/ to see a list of your files. The file names aren't too pretty, heh, but you can grab any of your downloads from there as well.

    There's no official word on price yet, but the rumblings on the street suggest a $2 tag. EDIT: Yup, $2 is official. And I'd pay more. Snap this one up, only available on the Cydia Store, sometime in the next 24 hours most likely.

      Works great. The most important things that made me buy it compared to its competitor, MXTUBE, were:
      1. It does not have a separate app
      2. It does not have a background process running all the time

      + (this I only noticed after I installed yourtube) it has nicer look.

      The only added feature that I would like to see in the near future is the possibility to convert the downloaded video`s into .mp3( or any other audio file which is playable on the iPod), so that the sound stays on while the phone is in standby.* wishful thinking perhaps* :-)

      Well my system sounds bricked after installing this. I did a fresh restore and still no keyboard, sms sounds etc

      Whaat could have possibly gone wrong? Isnt a system restore supposed to install all new default sounds?

      i've used MXTube and liked it because it was free. although, i rarely use it except for when i'll be traveling on a plane or something.
      at first i was in the camp that thought 'why buy something when there's an option for free?', but the integration is really nice. not to mention i dislike clutter and being able to remove an app is nice. and after reading that mxtube runs in the background, i'd much prefer having the extra space (even if i do have a 3GS now).
      so i sacked up, paid $2 for the app, and thus far am enjoying it.

      No support for this application? The email address is publicly listed on the app and I've replied to every one of the support emails I've received in a very short time Feel free to email me, but I only check up on this thread every so often so it's not a good way to get support.

      E se preferisci mi puoi anche mandare domande in italiano

      Edit: I just saw your original request for help. Se premi il tasto "Modifica" in alto a destra, ti permetterà di trascinare l'icona dei Download sulla barra in fondo. Fammi sapere se hai altri problemi. Ma preferibilmente via email perché come ho detto prima non vengo qui molto spesso

      We all screw up from time to time. Nice to see someone admit it so other people aren't left wondering if there is a problem.

      Glad you got it sorted

      I know funny thing I didn't notice it, but what made it worse the lil Airplane didn't show for some reason my theme must have been preventing it.

      I am hugely disappointed! I just brought the app and it does everything as promised. BUT the quality of the videos are much lower than those I have downloaded with MxTube. I have downloaded high quality and compared MxTube and YourTube. There is defintely a hugh difference!!

      Please fix this.

      I think that it is a great program, but with lower quality, it is useless for me.
