    Default 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.

    Mxtube worked well enough, calling it "extinct" is off and it's free

    Excuse my french, but I still have MxTube, and it still works brilliantly as well? I'm interested in this Yourtube though, too.

    this is pretty legit.

    but the only thing that would make mxtube more popular would be the fact that people dont have to pay for it. that was the whole cool idea behind it; something that work so nicely with youtube that you were able to download videos off of completely free. i wouldnt really say mxtube is quite extinct yet, because if they do throw a pricetag on it, mxtube will probably remain victorious. haha

    Point taken... I'm saying that this method makes soooo much more sense.

    this certainly looks more interesting then downloading a seperate app and launching that, since i usually find a video that i like and then have to close the youtube.app, launch MxTube.app and try to search for that video from the same user and have no guarantee of finding it again. This would be a much more elegant solution.

    MxTube works flawlessly on 3.0. WHY would anyone pay for this?
    Makes no sense to me.

    Pretty cool but like almost everyone else, I doubt I'd actually buy it when mxtube is free...

    For all the MxTube supporters... Have you ever happened to notice that MxTube runs a daemon process in the background ALL THE TIME? Yeah maybe not a big deal on my 3GS, but when I had my 3G it was eating ram and processor even when I wasn't using it. Big no-no in my book. Mobile Substrate is a much better way to go, if coded properly.

    I'll probably buy this new one, looks slick.

    What part would that be? The charging money part or the having a seperate yet FREE app that does the same thing?

    MxTube > $$$.app

    No matter how "easy" something is, you can never beat FREE when the end results are the same.
