    Quick guide.

    Ok so first download MxTube and the safari downloader both available through cydia.

    Download the video you want to watch using the safari downloader.

    download a short youtube video.

    Ssh into your ipod and navigate to /private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads

    find the mp4 file you just downloaded and copy it to /private/var/mobile/Media/MxTube

    then copy the file name of the youtube mp4 you downloaded and then delete that file

    rename the mp4 you downloaded from safari downloader to the name you copied of the youtube video

    leave the other file as this is needed for it to work.

    Open Mxtube and watch your video.

    Yeah, that isn't worth doing, when you could do what teslanaut said. Now if you could play the videos right after you downloaded them w/ out a computer that would be good. Plus you were downloading the video from youtube when you could just use mxtube.

    i dont see thepoint of this; if ur going to use a computer why not just put the movie file into itunes and just sync. Plus this will only work for mp4 files. Also, if 'uve downloaded the safari DL plugin, why not stream the movie if its in mp4 format

    yeah it was just an idea that I had I didn't realy think it fully through, and you can do this through terminal I think but yeah I get your point it's pretty useless but I thought I would just chuck the idea out there anyway
