  • YourTube 2 Hits Cydia with Sweet New Feature



    I don't want to over-dramatize the sweetness of YourTube 2, a new app which is now available via Cydia, but this neat little arrival to our app world certainly, at least from my perspective, falls into the category of "this app is so cool I'm bummed about having to write this article and take time away from actually enjoying it."

    If you're wondering, this app is, indeed, unique from the original YourTube and comes packed with new features, one of which is simply amazing and makes it worth this honorable mention. In a nutshell, you can now add movies/downloaded videos to your iPod Library. That is, you download a movie directly from YouTube.app and then you can add it to your iPod library from there.

    YourTube 2 comes to us by way of a dev group called Cocoanuts, which includes the likes of francis and westbaer and copumpkin among others we are fans of. Hosted by MMi in Cydia, YourTube 2 is now available and ready for you to enjoy on this long holiday weekend... although we're pretty sure the first vid you download from YouTube for later viewing on your iPod won't be Chris Martin's performance from last week's Apple event

    YourTube 2


    EDIT: Oh, and good to know as well: the tweak is free if you bought YourTube after July 1, $1 upgrade if you bought it before July 1, and $5 if you've never owned it. And it fully supports the iPhone 4.

      I can add videos to the library but can't play the videos I have downloaded in the Youtube app, it will crash if I do. I have a 3GS 4.0.1

      Shouldn't the youtube video pictured read "plays a lot of bad notes on the piano during Viva la Vida?"

      Dear god, I don't think he could have sucked anymore on piano than he did that show.

      Still doesn't work after multiple uninstalls and reinstalls. Guess I'll ask for my money back. Can't elieve the app tries to download the same videos every time it opens. Worthless.

      can anybody confirm these issues are maybe 3GS related only?

      Guys stay away from this App. Had yourtube on my 3g and it worked flawlessly.

      Installed Yourtube 2 on my iPhone 4 and it sucks!

      1. Missing videos in "downloads"
      2. Many downloaded videos won't play through Youtube app (MUST export to Itunes) even though the same videos played fine in Yourtube.

      3. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY! I tried uninstalling the app and it messed up my NATIVE you tube app. I now only have 2 options + more at the bottom of my youtube instead of 4 + more.

      All of my grumblings have been about the iPhone 4. This app is really buggy and broken. Total waste of money.

      Have you encountered my issue that I posted above Kart? I have no way to get my 2 missing "buttons" back at the bottom of my native youtube app!

      Maybe i misunderstood this app. I have a 16GB 2G touch. i installed it, downloaded a youtube video. the video downloaded perfectly. Then i clicked on the arrow and hit the add to ipod library button. I checked my videos and music and nothing was added. I rebooted twice and still nothing. Then i reinstalled and tried again. still nothing.What is supposed to happen when i click the "add to ipod library" button?

      I don't understand how this app can receive such a glowing review yet have these problems. It's like 2 different products were being compared. Maybe the reviewer will comment.

      -copy the URL of the youtube song you want(recommend this for a tribute DL-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXywSZ-Zdmg)

      -get a media converter(mediaconverter.org) is a free fine one

      -convert to mp3 and download..mine went strait to iTunes...you may have to drag and drop.....glta
