CuteTube 2 (the only working Symbian/MeeGo YouTube downloader app) updated to version

CuteTube update fixes the YouTube API issue in Symbian/MeeGo phones

If you own (or owned) a Symbian phone then CuteTube should be a familiar name. It is a free, full-featured YouTube/DailyMotion/Vimeo client app for Symbian which can stream/download HD videos from these sites. There were many such apps for Symbian few years back (I described all such apps in an older post here) but due to change in YouTube API code, all of them stopped working earlier this year. And since developers have also stopped updating their Symbian apps, it is unlikely that this issue will be fixed in the near future. Fortunately Stuart Howarth, the developer of CuteTube, has come up with a new version of the app recently with a completely re-written code. The new app, CuteTube 2 fixes the YouTube incompatibility issue and is working perfectly to stream/download YouTube videos in High Definition. This is a rare occurrence now as very few Symbian apps are still getting updates.

Salient features of cuteTube2

  • Access multiple YouTube, Dailymotion and Vimeo accounts
  • Browse, search, play and download videos
  • Search playlists and channels
  • Share videos via email and social networks (MeeGo-Harmattan only)
  • Support for additional services via plugins
  • Optional user-defined authentication credentials and access scopes

The developer promises to continue the development of CuteTube in the future too. We salute such developers who are still working for their beloved Symbian OS. Thanks for keeping the spirit alive guys! And we also appeal our readers and other Symbian fans to generously donate money to developers like Stuart Howarth. This way you will support further development of Symbian apps.

CuteTube2 is free and you can download latest version from the official site (v2.0.5.1 as a sis file for Symbian). Separate versions are available for Symbian, Maemo5 and MeeGo-Harmattan. Note also that CuteTube2 will install as a new app even if you already have older CuteTube (version 1.xx) installed, because of the new name and UID. So it is recommended to un-install the older one which is useless now.

Update (October 2016)CuteTube2 just got updated to version with some bug-fixes.

    I just installed the app and when I opened it, it just gives me a black screen only and shows nothing. What do I do?

      Which phone do you have? I am using CuteTube2 in Nokia N8 and it’s working perfectly well.

    I am using Nokia C7 but on Symbian Anna.

      It may be a Symbian Anna compatibility issue. Why don’t you upgrade to Belle?

    You mght be right! Please give me advice on upgrading.

    • Shoaib December 9, 2016 at 10:01 PM #

      As Microsoft has closed down the Nokia firmware update servers, you can not upgrade via phone’s inbuilt Software Update function. Delight Belle is the best custom firmware to consider in this scenario for your Nokia C7.

    What about the new NSRT update? Won’t it work? I would prefer the official version of the Symbian Belle. Thanks a bunch for the previous advices!

    I know it’s not possible to upgrade via phone’s inbuilt Software Update function, but can’t I use NSRT? If not, I will appreciate if you give me more details on the Delight Belle you mentioned earlier. Thanks!

      Unfortunately NSRT is non-functional now. Still you can use the method described in this post to download official firmware for your phone. Follow the steps described in this post to flash the phone with the downloaded firmware files.

    I tried the Nokia and Lumia Firmware Downloader in the post given. I get an invalid product cde response. My product code is 059D7M4. What do I do next?

    • Shoaib December 12, 2016 at 10:55 PM #

      Tough luck pal! Fortunately there is still a solution for you – use Delight Firmware for your C7 available here

  8. Emeka December 13, 2016 at 2:00 AM #

    Thanks pal! I’ve saved the page and I will upgrade when I see a very good reason to. I don’t know why I got the Cute Tube in the first place. I thought it might buffer faster than inbuit player (don’t know if it thus, cos I haven’t tried). But thanks anyways for all the advice.

      Welcome dear! Glad to help.
