    Some of you may recall an app that was released on the app store call MiTube. It let you download YouTube videos. However it was quickly taken down. I was one of the lucky people that got a copy before then.

    I have been loving it ever since. However today when I went to go use it, whenever I search it says, "can not connect to YouTube". Is anybody else having this problem? I hope that YouTube didn't block it somehow. If someone has this app please let me know.

    YouTube didn't block it, they just redid their site a bit. MxTube was updated to fix the problem. But MiTube won't ever work again.

    It's been that way, for me, for a few days (at least). I was thinking of asking other people about it.. but I kept forgetting to. Guess this means that it's dead.. :(

    I had the same problem the other day.

    Once YouTube updates their site even a little, MiTube (aka MxTube) won't work.

    Looks like I'll have to jailbreak to get it back. Luckily, I have pretty much all the videos I ever really wanted and can always stream if I don't want to JB. I have 49 videos still in my MiTube just for that "extra" entertainment. Videos tend to have the LEAST replay value and is always one of the first to go when it comes to deleting. Certain apps, all my music, and personal videos and photos have higher priority for me to keep than YouTube vids.

    At least my VLC app still works!

    I've been having this problem for the past week or so, and it's really sucky. :/ I don't want to JB just to get the ability to dl videos back! Plus, with mitube, we even had the option of choosing the video stream size (wifi/edge).
    Yeah, sure it works the same with mxtube...but JBing and getting Cydia.. :/

    I was lucky enough to get it to, it's a shame it doesn't work anymore. But I definitely won't be jailbreaking though.

    Any other non-JB app that would do something like MiTube?

    Thanks, Was wondering about this. Since I had some vids saved for the kiddos I was not worried about it until I tried to download a new one today.

    Mine stopped working too...

    You could always download YouTube videos from the computer and then put them on your phone... And they'd be on iTunes for when you get a new iPhone! But that takes a long time and sometimes doesn't work.

    File Fix

    Is there a way to get into the app and update the files that were modified? If there is, all that needs to be done is take whatever file, strings, plist. Etc that allowed the MXTube users to use their app, and copy it into the MiTube.app. Please reply if you have any info regaurding this.
    :apple:

    Alternatives

    As I don't wish to JB I will use vlc to import videos via iTunes apps.
    Just d/l on PC and add files to the vlc app via iTunes
    By the way, I don't get why Apple blocked Mitube. :(

    Apple had nothing to do with MiTube's issue it was all on Google. Google updated the mobile YouTube site causing the old strings in the MiTube application to become dysfunctional.

    Workaround

    Using a desktop application similar to MiTube, a remote access app like TeamViewer or LogMe In, plus DropBox, would be a great alternative to MiTube, and also to similar needs.

    I was one of the lucky few to download it before Apple removed it. Shame it doesn't work anymore. I also got HandyLight and Monino :D

    Search for the video downloader by "DreamDevLasers", I think it works.
