Features:
  • Force HQ Videos
  • Download Videos

Active downloads can be viewed by pressing Menu at the main youtube screen, then click on Misc and select Downloads. Save folder can be edited in the Rollemod Settings (also select Misc in Menu).

To download videos, simply press menu while you're in the player - select misc and press "Download Video". A dialog will pop up allowing you to chose the quality of the video of your desire.

I am planning on adding more features. But this should do it for now.

  • Google - for creating the Youtube app

Or put it on your SDCard and install it with the package installer by opening it with a file manager.

Known issues:
- Restarting a download doesn't work proper.

Planned features:

Froyo will be supported once its released because i will have to modify its youtube app.

No, but it works on current Froyos, so there shouldn't be a problem to create your mod for people using Froyo already.

EDIT:
But I understand that modding of YouTube may be hard cause of obfuscation, so you just don't wanna work with too many versions of it.

Google does not update the Youtube.apk that often, I'm pretty sure it's final, or at least close to final. We onlt had 2 Youtube.apks during éclair's lifecycle... we have Froyo's Youtubr.apk... unodexed by default.

I think it's doable, and it is why wait? Thanks for your work, though!
