Love streaming on youtube through via iPhone, iPod touch or even iPad?
Yeah, so do I. Love to stream my music videos, prank and humor videos, music concerts, tips trick and guide, etc. While Apple already has YouTube app on installed on iOS devices by default, the youtube app on iphone cannot save your favorites video. Even after playing a video and you want to replay the video, youtube app still load the video from Internet, not on cache. It is pretty bad for medium or low internet quality, even if you have high-speed, I still hate it to not caching the video stream.
But, don’t worry, you are not alone. All other iPhone users also hate this youtube due to its inability to save favorite youtube videos using default youtube app.
That’s why jailbreak exist, to bypass such limitation on iOS device (and other jailbreakable devices as well).
You can save youtube videos directly on iPhone and play the saved youtube video later without internet connection. Yes, playing favorite youtube videos offline on iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and you don’t need to transfer the video from computer.
So, how do I save my videos from youtube to iPhone without computer?
