    Hmmm, i though you could do it with Downloads. I just tried to to confirm, but it only downloads the HTML link. Weird. I can use that app to download on any other site.

    I don't think it can be done, but I'd love to see it in action.

    just if your jailbroken, there is software you can use on your pc to convert youtube clips to mp4 then you can move them to your iphone

    Easy answer is no.

    Better answer though is do you want to do this on the go or are there a select few videos you want access to all the time.

    If you just want a few videos with you always then I recommend Miro. Its free, cross platform, lets you download streams among other things.
    You basically add youtube as a site, go there (player acts like a web broswer) and when you pick a video it gives you the option to download it.

    If you want to be able to on demand download videos then im not sure. This can be done with a jailbreak but it doesn't sound like that's something you wanted. There have been apps but they've all been pulled to my knowledge.

    Google around, best option, I'm sure there's someone who does this...

    This guy has got the right idea. You can use websites that convert the videos you want, drag and drop those conversions to itunes and then sync your ipod.

    I used to have an app by a chinese developer, that would allow you to do this, but it wasn't that great.

    Don't think it is in the app store anymore though. Maybe apple band that sort of thing...

    there was an app called mitube about this time last year. you could download the videos. apple took it down a couple days after being out. then youtube updated it's site a few months ago and mitube stopped working because of it.

    I was able to do it without a computer or jailbreak.

    Been a while since I tried it, might wanna give it a whirl.

    Choose your YouTube video, use one of the sites that allow YouTube conversion should give you a download link to the video.

    I downloaded the video with the Good Reader app from there (copy the link in safari, then paste it in the URL bar with the letter g in front of the link, ex: g this will open the download in good reader)

    It worked before.

    Sorry if this post has loads of mistakes...kinda late here. xD

    Jailbroken - MxTube
    Not Jailbroken - Download Manager
    (Copy the URL of the youtube video from safari.
    Go to a youtube to mp4 site in safari and paste the link
    Then copy the link of this youtube to mp4 page.
    Paste this URL in download manager then follow through to download.

    Hope This Helps - I have used this before but it was a while ago, it may not work now.

    Yup, MXTube if you're jailbroken....its the old MiTube that Apple pulled but updated so it still works with the new youtube format

    Use iSafePod, it's got a really easy way to download youtube videos (Tap and hold).

    Can you select the quality of download in any of these apps ? My friend who uses android uses something called tubex and can choose what resolution video to download including full HD. so jelly.
