  • 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.

      Does this:
      A) Support login (subscriptions)
      B) Somehow let you play videos that you can't find in the normal youtube app. (sometimes it says not supported by iphone)
      ?

      Its IN the youtube app...so anything the youtube app does already is possible plus downloading videos

      I would gladly purchase an app that gives the "ad to iPod" option to a music downloading program. Such as dtunes

      SSH.... /private/var/mobile/media/yourtube

      copy video files to somewhere on pc/mac then manually add them to itunes, you can also delete them from iphone and do the same if you wish.

      Does anyone happen to know if there are any hidden files of YourTube2 in the iPhone after deleting it? I've deleted YourTube2 from Cydia and still see the /private/var/mobile/media/yourtube file on my phone. Want to completely remove this app and any traces of it off my phone. Thanks

      Right now, the only way is to SSH into your phone and go to /private/var/mobile/media/yourtube and delete the files manually from there.

      I want to get rid of this app completely off my phone until they fix it. Anyone know anywhere else on the phone there are files that aren't removed when you delete YourTube 2 from cydia?

      If I respring/reboot or if the youtube app crashes, all my videos I've downloaded dissapear next time I open the app. And one of the videos I've already downloaded keeps trying to re-install again.

      Is there an contact email for the developer of this app? Is he working on these issues?
      Same exact problems here. No matter what I do, this always happens.

      Those of you who are having crashes with playing any YouTube videos, try uninstalling MultiMusicInfo if you have it installed. The latest update totally f*cked YouTube.app as soon as you play a file.

      (Youtube.app crashing when you play a downloaded file from YourTube is a different problem.)

      Thanks if it worked for you

      this tweak is pissing me off cos i got one video that you can delete but when you re-open youtube app its there again as if it were magic. i think its got something to do with the yourtube_downloaded.plist but im not sure

      hi im having the same problem i think its got something to do with the yourtube_downloaded.plist in the tmp folder because its holding data about the video in question but im not brave enough to delete any of the data

      Well what can i say. I heard about this app and then decided to Jailbreak my Iphone 4 (4.1). Now jailbroken and up to speed thought i would download the app.

      My initial thought were that the app would be able to do the following:
      Locate music (as that is what i want it for)on youtube
      Select Copy to Ipod
      Now copied to Ipod so behaves as a normal itunes file (so i can sync back to my PC and distribute to my other i devices).
      Not sure what i am going to do now as above comments do not back up my initial thoughts......

      I hate pirating, but I really wish now that I had downloaded a cracked version of this worthless app instead of wasting my money on it. The developer is ignoring every email I've sent and hasn't said a peep about when this worthless app is going to be fixed.
