YouTube Video as Video Ringtone

Available In: Installer       Price: Free  

MxTubeFindervWallpaperI’m going through the forum, which I would love to have more time for, and I found this thread stated by DJContagious. It explains how to take a YouTube Video and make it into a video ringtone. How sweet is that! Great job DJContagious!

yes its true, there’s a way to get YouTube videos as a ringtone

iPhone (DUH!) FW 1.1.4
Wi-Fi (not necessarily a requirement, but saves time)

Step 1. Open MxTube, find a video you would like as your ringtone, and download (I would recommend the ” High quality” option, it would look more cut up).

Step 2. Once the video is done downloading, quit MxTube and open Finder.

Step 3. Navigate to. /var/mobile/Media/MxTube and spot the video you downloaded (this might be a bit challenging if you have multiple videos, just look In the little pictures and see which one could be from your video.).

Step 4. Once you find you video, locate the clone of it (by this I mean the .mp4 file that matches the name of the .THM picture of the video you just downloaded.

Step 5. Press “File” and then “Move”.

Step 6. Now navigate to /var/mobile/Media/Skrew/vRingtones

Step 7. Once there, press “Paste” at the bottom left button panel.

Step 8. Once it pastes there, exit Finder and reboot your phone.

Step 9. Open vWallpaper, and select Video Ringtones, then Select Videos, and select the vid u just downloaded. Then reboot.

Done! Now ask someone to call you, and you will see a YouTube video as your ringer!

It seems for me, I didn’t need to move the files using finder. vWallpaper found them on it’s own! That makes it much easier. Let me know how it works for you.

  1. Last time I updated vWallpaper it automatically added my mxTube downloads to the list of videos to use as wallpaper or ringtone.
    I didn’t have to go through finder.
    My version of vWallpaper is 0.93

  2. vWallpaper does that automatically. The only issue is that you cannot recognize the names, but you can still preview them.
    I have a question: some youtube videos are rotated and shrinked when using vWallpaper (to fit the screen). Any way to sthrech them?
