    What version of yourtube do you have? When viewing the download directory in ifile hit the little blue arrow across from ifile...scroll to the bottom of this popup window and tap "add to camera roll"....the option "add to iPod app" doesn't work though. Video should now be in your photos app.

    i have yourtube hd 1.3.1-1 thanks for your advice but could do that without asking here that's not the problem,what i want is to fix the problem of disappearing from downloads section in youtube app,i don't want to go to ifile every time and do the same.

    I'm a little confused though....what do you mean "after reboot" are you shutting down the iPad completely after video is downloaded? Or do you mean after restarting the YouTube app itself?

    When you tap "download" on the video....does the video shoot over to the "downloads" tab at bottom of YouTube app, where you can watch as it downloads? And once it completes does it disappear then?

    wow i can't believe this is so difficult to explain... yes when y tap download and it's complete i see the video in "downloads tab" and i play it perfectly but u know sometimes when i run out of battery or install something from cydia that requires a reboot u do it and then when i go again to youtube app the downloads tab where all my videos were is completely empty though the videos are still in yourtube's folder and i can play them only from there coz in youtube downloads tab there's nothing.got it now?

    This happen to me just recently. I download a video from youtube, it downloaded fine, played fine everything was fine, but then I turn off my iPad complete for the night. (holding down the sleep/wake button at the top right corner of the iPad) The next day I wanted to listen to that same song and went to the section where all the downloads go after they finish downloading but did not see the video there, although I did see a video that I downloaded a really long time ago and had deleted, and it was some how there again. The old video did not play when I clicked on it, nothing really happened when I clicked on it. So i deleted it again.

    I too am wondering why this happened and is there a way to fix this? (As mention above)

    Just trying to get as much info as possible to try and replicate the problem. I've downloaded a few sample vids and rebooted the iPad several times and the videos still remain. Did you rename videos thru ifile then? All I can say is perhaps chalk it up to bugs with yourtube...contacting the developer, cocoa nuts, won't get you anywhere as I have a few times.


    I too did notice this....when deleting through the YouTube app the video was still in the var/mobile/media/yourtube folder. I had to delete thru ifile to permanently delete. Also noticed if I renamed video thru ifile, the video would not play at all with in the native YouTube app.

    It's a known issue with these problems happening and no support from the developer....who was kicked out of the cydia store by saurik himself because of receiving complaints about no developer support.

    There are official apps in the app store that will accompolish this...tagdisk hd+, free & paid versions, for one but it is a stand-alone app.

    Tagdisk is for downloading YouTube videos not for viewing/managing system files.

    Right now, unfortunately, YourTube is one of the few Cydia apps that doesn't play well with iOS 4.3.3. No updates to it, yet, nor have I heard of any in the works.

    Shame that, 'cause I did like it (when I was on 4.2.1). But, given the niceties of 4.3.3, I guess one "broken" tweak is liveable with.

    I guess we have to wait few more updates then... maybe improvement and bugs for 4.3.3 will be fix later.

    btw... i did try a fix by uninstalling yourtube... deleting the file from its root directory and reinstalling it.. did all the step correctly but never had luck on it.

    I hope everyone here can provide an update once fix is out.

    Regards...
