    would it be simple to change mxtube to download videos from other sites similar to youtube possible by just changing a value in the program?

    No it's written to use Youtube.

    only the programmers with the source code could do that, its possible, you would just need to know the signature for download from the otehr streaming video sites(youtubes is widely known)

    Actually, that's not how it works.

    MxTube justs downloads directly from the Youtube Mobile database that the native Youtube app uses.

    Youtube Mobile uses .mp4 for it to work on the iPod touch and the iPhone, and the only other streaming video site that uses that codec for support on the iPod touch or iPhone is Dailymotion.

    It could also work by downloading the video from another site (e.g. Metacafe), then converting it, but that would be really time consuming.

    Hope this helped!

    You can't you your device to download porn if that's what you're asking.

    I thought there were other sites like vTap, Google Video (not the Flash section, but the download link), etc. that would probably work as well... Maybe 2.0 will allow you to select from multiple sites...

    actually he can. theres a website called tinytube.net that lets you watch videos from pretty much every video site you can think off including sites like xtube. plus its his choice if thats what he wants to watch, FAGKing. also he can use historydl to download and convert. so yeah...he can. everyone can

    YouTube converted all their videos to *.mp4, and nobody else has. So no.
