YourTube: Jailbreak App Allows Users To Download YouTube Videos To iPod Library On Their iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch


YourTube – a jailbreak app that allows users to watch and download YouTube videos has been updated to add support for iOS 4 and iPhone 4’s retina display. The developers have also released YourTube HD for iPad users.

With the new version of YourTube, users will not only be able to download YouTube videos to their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch but they can also import them in the iPod app.

YourTube has been developed by CocoaNuts, who have developed jailbreak apps such as Safari Download Manager and Attachment Saver.

CocoaNuts announced the release of the new version on their website:

We’re proud to announce that YourTube has the ability to import downloaded videos directly into your iPod app! We call this new feature “Gremlin” and you will start seeing this in many of our tweaks on Cydia, including Safari Download Manager and Attachment Saver.

YourTube 2.0 is newly re-designed for iOS4. It includes a host of stability fixes, improved memory management, improved download speeds, and fixes for the nasty iOS4 sandbox. And don’t forget the ability to import your downloaded videos into the iPod library 😉


Please note that downloading videos from YouTube is not supported by YouTube’s Terms of Service. Apple had recently removed MiTube, which allowed users to download YouTube videos due to this issue so please use YourTube at your own risk.

You can download YourTube on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using Cydia. YourTube 2.0 for iPhone and iPod Touch and YourTube HD for iPad both cost $5 each.

If you’ve purchased YourTube 1.0 after July 1st, you are entitled for a free upgrade. If you bought it before July then you will be able to purchase it for only $1 (a 80% discount).

As always, let us know your feedback on the jailbreak app in the comments section below.
