YouTube is amazing for wasting time…who needs to get work done when you can watch useless videos all day long? Well, if you want to take your procrastination problem one step further, then MxTube will solve your problems!

MxTube is an application that will enable you to download any YouTube video and store it directly on your iPhone! First, you search for any YouTube video within MxTube, and once it’s found you can download it in “high” or “low” quality. I downloaded my video review of AppFlow and the 2MB download was fairly quick (WiFi at home). Video quality was decent, but not the best.

Anyways, this is pretty neat if you want to download music videos or any other priceless YouTube video onto your iPhone. Check out my gallery below for some screenshots. MxTube can be found in Installer under Multimedia (make sure you have a good list of Installer sources; Bigboss’ Recommended & Community Sources v3.6 are a good start):

    I have been using this for about a week now (or almost) and it works pretty good, had a few flaws here and there… lol I come across problems where downloading 2 videos that are 9 min long and once the one finishes, it will just restart the iphone lol or else when playing video clips, it will play half way and then stop playing but the sound is still continuing… and sometimes the video clips will be really glitchy, color is black and will flicker, plus the screen gets shifted to the side. So just curious if anyone else has had any problems? Running 1.1.2FW Other then that, this app is really wicked to use! Congrats MX on making this, I can’t wait for a more stable version and with the option to save the video clips to iTunes video folder πŸ™‚

    Thank iPhone Fan for reviewing this app!

    Have a good day πŸ˜‰

    I have downloaded a few videos with this last week but it was having issues, like crashing the iphone after it downloads a video at High and the it wouldn’t show up under my videos, also it would reset during downloading etc. I uninstalled and reinstalled a couple days later, it seems to be working much better now that it isn’t beta anymore.

    I’m looking forward to the coming soon features!
    thanks for the blog about it.

    Hey boys and girls, I installed this app myself a few days ago (fw 1.1.4) and it works great.. I have had the occasional crash back to spring board, and the hang and crash after downloading a HIGH video, but other than that it works great. However, I noticed 2 larger BUGS..
    1- if your download is interrupted, the program will leave a file part in its download folder that won’t be visible to you but will still take space on your device.
    2- when properly deleting a file that you’ve downloaded, a small file is left behind (my guess is the thumbnail picure)..
    so I guess that deleting is not so clean, and download crashes are not well handled. if you’re wondering, I used OpenSSH to get into the iPhone and locate the MxTube download folder
    can anyone else confirm this behavior?

    Ya I had the same problem about the deleting part… I had a few videos crash and didn’t show in the video tab but there were still on the iPhone taking up space, I had to SSH and manually delete it. Hopefully they can get that fixed along with the other bugs in there next release πŸ™‚
    I also read many forum comments on this issue to, so it is indeed a bug.

    thanks Samer for letting us know about the delete bug, I went in using iBrickr and found 8 videos in there that didnt show up on the iphone itself. Talk about wasted space lol.
    I still can’t seem to get a whole video to download, only about 30secs worth.
