    Default 'InTube' Lets You Easily Download Videos From the YouTube App for iOS


    If you like YouTube, but don't always have access to an active Internet connection, then having some kind of offline capability may become very useful for you.

    While there have been plenty of jailbreak tweaks in the past that have let you download videos directly from YouTube, many of them have not been updated to work with the latest version of the YouTube application and iOS 7. On the other hand, other developers are working on solutions to this problem by providing their own alternatives.

    A new one is called InTube by iOS developer Andrea Silvi. The tweak will add a new button to the YouTube video interface, as shown above, that, when tapped, will show download buttons for both HQ (720p) and SQ (360p) (high quality and standard quality), and Information and Cancel buttons.

    In the case where we would want to download a high quality version of the video that we're watching, we would tap on the HQ button. A pop-up notification would then let us know that the download has begun and that we can track the progress of the download via the iTunes Store application.

    Now when we go to the iTunes Store application, we will have a badge under the Downloads section of the application. It will show the YouTube video that you just downloaded from Google's YouTube application, and you can easily see a thumbnail of the video, the file size, the download progress, an estimated time remaining, and a title. You can also pause and resume the download at any time:



    Once the video finishes downloading, it will disappear from the iTunes Store application and it will appear in the Videos application on your iOS device under the Music Videos section. From here, you will be able to play the video that you downloaded. You can also delete it at any time by swiping on it from the video list view.

    It's worth mentioning that InTube supports simultaneous downloads and can import media to both the Videos or Music application on your iOS device. The way that the InTube download method is nicely integrated into the YouTube application and iOS media system is also a nice polished touch.

    If you would like to give InTube a try, it's available right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for just $1.99. The tweak does require iOS 7 to be installed and also requires the free YouTube application from the App Store. InTube is not compatible with iPads.

    Name: InTube
    Price: $1.99
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6, YouTube
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Andrea Silvi

    InTube received an update today that adds ad-blocking, high quality over cellular, and backgrounded playback.

    Thanks, though is there an iOS 6 version of this? This is another tweak that makes no sense to be limited to iOS 7. This is especially troublesome now that Protube Extension is no longer being maintained.

    YourTube works on iOS 6, and the ProTube APP works fine.

    As far as I can tell neither ProTube Extension (aka ProTube 2) nor YourTube work with the latest versions of the YouTube app.
