Offline YouTube Follow Up

Offline YouTube Follow Up

After I posted my previous post I started thinking what about my own videos (content I put up)? Well it worked (almost). You get prompted to choose the quality and off you go. However you also need to be on wifi to download. 

I suspect user uploaded content is ok but content with copyright or intellectual property may be disallowed. Still needs more testing.

Offline YouTube for Countries with Crap Internet (Philippines included!)

YouTube is taking pity on viewers from India, Philippines, Indonesia. Allowing the download and retention of videos for up to 48 hours. This means we can say goodbye to buffering and watch that favorite clip for 2 days. What a great idea.

I have not been able to get this to work on cellular data here in Baguio city. Can't connect to hotel wifi. So I will have to test this in Mandaluyong with my cable internet from SkyCable (2.5 months of erratic service already) which is not certain also. 

So this is a great idea if you can get the damned video to download in the first place. It is also worth noting that maybe all the videos I selected are really restricted because of copyright or intellectual property issues. 

Have you been able to get offline YouTube to work? Which video gave you success?
