  • 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.

      Please fix this.

      I think that it is a great program, but with lower quality, it is useless for me.
      The quality on yourtube is the same as on youtube. there is something wrong if you are not getting full quality.

      Anyone know If videos are downloaded then deleted from within the app are they deleted from the phone or do you have manually delete them from the correct folder to free up space..

      The only features that would get me to switch from MxTube is the ability to either group, re arrange, or more quickly scroll through downloaded videos. MxTube is a pain when you've downloaded tons of stuff.

      Does anyone know if this app allows any of the things mentioned?
      Thanks

      Swipe the video with your finger. Then a 'delete' button will pop-up.

      It's really good. I like it. Byebye MXtube i let you go sadly you were really helpful.
      @Tinos>I didn't see those options but i guess pumpkin will update it later and add more features, this is just a baby add on that can grow really great

      I know this is not the exact subject but I have a problem with youtube (the native app, even before install yourtube) It doesn't stay loged in. It's just me or anyone have gotten this issue?
      Even if I sign in, close the app and open it right away it says cannot connect to youtube and I have to sign in again.
      I can search and see the featured videos though. My iPhones was Activated with an ATT sim card.

      @GHOSTYAIRO

      I actually bought it, and found the same thing.
      It is very nice and much smoother than the MxTube for sure.
      I also like the fact that I can sign in to my youtube account and still favorite things right there, as well as download them. This wasn't possible in MxTube.

      I contacted pumpkin about these features, and this was the reply (and a very quick reply at that!)
      Thanks for the suggestions. I too often just use YouTube for music so have an interest in implementing that feature too. [he is talking about an idea I had to allow the screen to turn off while watching a music video] I'm still trying to think of a simple but effective way to organize the videos without getting too iPod-like, but would definitely like to add that in future.
      So these things are in the plans, weather they are possible or not, and how soon it will happen is to be determined, so no more bugging him on the subject! :P

      So I was a skeptic, but I now highly recommend the app after using it and hearing pumpkins willingness to make it even better... its only a couple bucks.. I know I donated more than that to MxTube in hopes to get these features that --as far as I know-- were never looked at.
