    YourTube is a mod, that will add extra functionality to the native YouTube iPhone App. By installing YourTube, the mod will add a new tab on the bottom bar by which you can access a Download Manager that will allow you to download YouTube videos in High or Low quality, without using MxTube.

    The app will be available in Cydia, The mod will be available as an MobileSubstrate extension which means YourTube will be integrated without using too many resources.

    From the screenshots below, it seems that the process is pretty simple: tap on a video and choose the High Quality (recommended if you use a WiFi connection) or Low Quality (EDGE/3G network).

    another question about a different topic

    How do I change the name of an app

    I updated the weather channel app and now the name under the icon says "standard"
    I would like to change it to weather or something

    how can I do this?

    You can get Rename off Cydia to do that. I haven't tried it with 3.0 so I can't say for sure that it's compatible.

    Just got YourTube and it's awesome! I'm surprised it took this long for someone to come up with it. Anyone know if I'd be able to get it on my ipod touch as well, or do I have to pay twice?

    Stupid question probably, but .....how do you get the videos you just downloaded off youtube and onto your pc/mac?

    With Mxtube I used to ssh into /library/mobile etc, but I am not sure where do I go now....

    While I don't usually pay for something I can work around for free (Like using Ymail and TextPlus for SMS messaging), the UI integration of this makes me very tempted. Does anyone know if downloads continue in the background like MxTube? Also, if they do, can anyone see if there is a process running in the background when the app isn't open?

    My one problem with MxTube is that even when you're not downloading a file they run a background daemon for downloads. I think that daemon should be killed when downloads are done and spawned when they begin... If this app gets around that then I'm all for it.

    I did. Absolutely zero point in having it, if you've stumped up the collossal & scandalous $2 :D for this great app extension.
