Easy Way to Save YouTube Videos From Your BlackBerry PlayBook

PlayBook Video Downloader YouTUbe

Quite a few readers sent this in as a tip so I thought it would be worth mentioning. There are thousands of websites and tools out there that help you save YouTube videos from your browser though most of them are targeted at desktops and not tablets. PlayBookRevolution decided to do something about that and released a nice script and dedicated page to help you simply copy and paste the YouTube video link to generate download links.

Simply head on over to this link and paste your video link. It should work on YouTube, Metacafe, Daily Motion, Google, and a maybe other sites. Let us know if you find any other tips. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

  1. I’ve been using this to download to pc the transfer to playbook. But has anyone gotten it to download on playbook?

    • It works on the playbook. Simply paste the url in the site and click one of the download links (make sure its mpeg4) do not hold on the link, just click it and a window will pop up asking you to save.

  2. I just tried couple vids, but only 1 was able to download sucessfully to PlayBook. I was tethering though, so maybe that’s why. I will try via WIFI later.

    • Hi, almost all videos work. Some, movies and ones requiring login, might not due to steps that have to be taken to access those videos.
      I would do this on wifi ONLY! Your playbook will basically emulate your phone and to my knowledge bb phones are restricted to certain download sizes which might be why some arent working.
      Hope that helps. I hardly ever come across vids that wont work and when i do I usually just try a different resolution (480p, not 720p) and it works.
      Hope that helps.
