Download & Watch YouTube Videos on your Nokia s40 (java) phone

YouTube being one of the most famous video sharing service, has plenty of videos ranging on almost every subject, whether it be music trailers or sports, you’ll be able to find videos about anything. Having access to YouTube videos is kind of Must for everyone today.

Users of expensive smartphones do have numerous apps and support to be able to download videos from YouTube, but users of feature phones are always missed. Most of the feature phones from Nokia are able to stream videos from YouTube, but the quality is never good and playback is full of lags. So, the best way out is to download videos from YouTube in a better quality and then watch it freely without any lags or misses. Follow the steps below to be able to download videos on your Nokia s40 mobile phones:

The program (app) which we’ll use is called YourTube (Youtube Downloader) and is available on Nokia Store for a very reasonable price of Rs. 10. It is the best YouTube Downloader app available for s40 phones. If for some reason you’re unable to purchase it from Nokia Store, you can download it from here (YourTube JAD File). Just copy paste the jar and jad file to your mobile phone and it will be installed automatically.
YourTube allows you to download videos from YouTube in many formats ranging from Low Quality 3gp to a 720p mp4. You’re free to download any format but, 360p mp4 will be an ideal choice for most users playing it on feature phones. Follow the steps below to use YourTube and download Videos:

  1. Download, Install and Open YourTube Youtube Downloader.
  2. On opening it for the first time, select options> settings and change the Destination Disk to E (Memory Card) and select Save.
  3. Now, enter any search term into the YouTube Search box, press search and wait for the app to find videos matching your search.
  4. From the list of videos displayed, select the one you prefer and select Optons> Video Properties if you wish to preview the video prior to downloading. Else, select Download from the options and wait for it to get the available formats.
  5. Select the download format of your choice (the one your phone supports) and start the download. Please note that, the higher quality you’ll choose, the higher will be the size of the downloaded video and the longer it will take to download.
  6. To have a look at the download progress, select Options> Download Screen.
  7. Once the download completes, you can watch the video by browsing to /Videos folder on your memory card.

    Where do i download the app?? -_-?? i don’t see the link

    • singhnsk February 25, 2013 at 10:03 pm #

      Sorry! I forgot to add the link into post.
      Here it is – Download YourTube
      Its a JAD file, so open the link in your phone’s browser and it will install the app with correct certificates and permissions.

      Thanks for the comment 🙂

      • Kelvin March 28, 2013 at 8:41 am #

        Thanks 🙂
        Wait. Why i open the link and its all midlet codes?

        • singhnsk March 28, 2013 at 10:53 am #

          You need to open the link on your phone. Or if you’re already using your phone, can you try using Opera Mini to access the link? 🙂

  3. ABBY April 6, 2013 at 4:35 pm #

    Super app. Really nice.
    But it can’t display size of video.

    • singhnsk April 6, 2013 at 10:08 pm #

      Yup.. On a 2G connection, its just not favorable to go any higher than 360p 🙂

  5. Naveen May 11, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    Btw is there any good pdf reader fr my Nokia asha 311?

    • Amarjyoti June 8, 2013 at 7:34 am #

      Dude just try eZreader which is found in nokia store for free…afterall as asha 311 is a S40 phone it will hv some limitations

      • singhnsk June 8, 2013 at 10:56 am #

        Just to add in, Samsung Star also uses a java proprietary OS similar to S40, but includes a built-in document reader. Its just that Nokia was never concerned about adding such functionality, otherwise it isn’t a tough task for a company like Nokia. Nokia actually failed to read user demand.

  6. Amarjyoti June 8, 2013 at 7:28 am #

    Awesome app dude..but pls upgrade this app so that we can atleast see the video size

    • singhnsk June 8, 2013 at 10:56 am #

      It isn’t developed by me. Lets see if the original creator wishes to update it 😀

      • Amarjyoti June 8, 2013 at 12:22 pm #

        Thanks stil u mst request the developer for ur customers’ sake…

        • singhnsk June 8, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

          Customers. Ahh.. Alright! I’ll send an email to the developer, but the dev will first kill me for providing his mail app for free 😛
          Better if you go and contact him for the same.

    • singhnsk August 31, 2013 at 10:48 pm #

      Some videos are restricted and not available for download and hence such a warning will pop up in this case.

    • Narender Singh July 14, 2014 at 5:03 pm #

      You need to open the jad file link on your phone instead. It needs to download the jar file before it could work.

  24. Keabetswe July 29, 2014 at 2:49 am #

    • Narender Singh July 29, 2014 at 9:15 am #

      If you have your access point and streaming settings set correctly, it should work fine. Please do note that you can only play streaming videos from YouTube and a few other sites. Majority of the sites with online flash videos embedded will not be supported.

  25. Dozzykul November 11, 2014 at 8:25 pm #

    Please sir,what is up with dis jad and jar thing..i use a nokia x202 and its not working

      Just open the JAD link on your phone. Your download will go through fine 🙂
