Hello,

I wanted to ask if anyone here is using an alternate youtube app or a modded one? There were a couple I did try from xda but they dont work properly so I'm guessing not compatible with KitKat.

I was looking specifically for the feature to download the videos in HD (Trailers/Lectures) and obviously full HD playback.

Anyone?

EDIT: Oh and Tubemate does not work :/ parsing error...

I found this a while back on here, can't seem to find it now though. https://www.dropbox.com/s/80ek7unab8...3.0_BETA-3.apk It piggybacks on the official YouTube and works through the share option. When you find a video you want to download, hit the three dot overflow button under the video. Share options come up, scroll to the bottom til you see YouTube donwloader. I've used this for a while and its worked through multiple app updates.

This used to be a great app, but it doesn't download the videos as the OP asked for, it's no longer in the Play Store, and some videos won't work with it (not just for me either, check the XDA thread). I'd advise against this app. Viral is a good alternative for a player that doesn't download, albeit not as good as SuperTube was.
