Ever watched a video on YouTube and wished you could save it for later to watch offline? You can now thanks to Down Tube which will please many folk including myself. The beauty of the app is that it will allow you to cache the video on your BlackBerry 10 device to view whenever you like - with none of this buffering business that we quite often see. 

Using the app is a piece of cake. Just paste the YouTube video link into the app and press the 'Preload and Watch Videos' tab and off you go. Once the process is complete you can jump into the preloaded videos section where your list of videos will appear. Start one up and it will appear just as if it was in your media library - no web browser launching. And this rocks!

Features include: 

  • Quick 1 button local preloading
  • Instant video viewing with BlackBerry 10 media player integration
  • Multi-URL support (desktop, mobile, short URLs supports)
  • Save video (* not available for YouTube videos)

Supported Video Websites: 

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo

Down Tube is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and is priced at £1.50/$1.99 - very reasonable if you ask me.

Does this app allow you to save to sd card?

Nope YouTube did not allow them to add this feature, hopefully in the future they will allow saving videos on sd

I don't think I would want to flood my memory card with YouTube videos but, I love the idea. I am mainly on YouTube for learning different things. I would use this to get my fill from the video and then delete. Cache it again another time if and when needed.

Had something awesome like this long ago on the iPhone. Eventually YouTube forced it to stop the download service and money was lost.

To answer the initial question:
No!

Ya, I'll wait until you can save the videos to SD card then I'll buy it ...

You can download the video free of charge! Why spend 2 bucks when you can keep em? Go to tuberku.com and follow the same procedure for this app.

Well, those are illegal though. Apps submitted to BB World should not have issues with piracy.

Sold Tubemate is good on the Playbook. Any updated options better than tubemate for the playbook ? Actually Tubemate does the job, just have to sideload it.

Strange... I think Tuberku.com is a much better option. You can download the video on your device and it's completely free of charge.

Totally agree with you!
Tuberku.com works very well and Down tube gives me the error preload message..
so i wouldn't buy it again if i ha d the choice...

Josh05 spot mate! Just used that site you mentioned! Thanks...

I'm doing that since PlayBook and tubemate is available... on top of that it's free and you can actually watch or download the videos in different qualities.

I downloaded some concert videos off YouTube. How can I play them so I can listen to the audio but have the screen turned off? Also, is there a way to play multiple videos in a row automatically so I can listen to them while driving over bluetooth?

Try "Playback Plus" from app world.

Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for. Now to get the video to play on my car's 8" gps screen, I would really be rock'n.

Does it work on the leaks?

I recommend Neutron Music Player for that. By far my favorite app and best invested 5 bucks. Purchasing it on the Q10 gave me even a free download for my PlayBook. You can create playlists and it handles video files like audio files. Even plays FLAC and the Q10s media keys work (volume, play, skip) which is pretty awesome.

umm... that was a reply to Goniff's first comment btw.
