Anyone who uses YouTube has seen a recently introduced new feature called Shorts. These are short videos that YouTubers can use to attract viewers to their channel, which is less than a minute long. For users who are already using the shorts feature of YouTube, YTShortsDownloader is a new and free jailbreak tweak released by iOS developer bandarhelal. It allows jailbreakers to download Shorts clips from the YouTube app.
After installation, the tweak adds a button to download short videos. The down arrow button represents it on the right side of the screen in the screenshot example above.
After tapping the download button, the user can select the download quality of their viewing clips. The quality of the videos varies from one clip to another, and it depends on the uploader’s camera.
For those interested in downloading shorts from the YouTube app, you can download YTShortsDownloader tweak for free from the Packix Repository. There are no changes to configure and support jailbroken iOS 13 and iOS 14 devices. Also, YTShortsDownloader is open-source on the developer’s GitHub page.
