Metrotube fix is now live in the Windows Phone Store
Metrotube was recently pulled due to YouTube alterations that broke playback. The developer has got in touch with us to reveal that an update containing a fix has been submitted and should be live in the Store within the next 24 hours (it is currently live for those in the US). The app update has passed certification, meaning consumers will be seeing the release shortly.
Metrotube for Windows Phone 7 is also updated to include video preloading for offline playback, which is already sported on Windows Phone 8. This will bring the legacy version up-to-date with the app on the latest version of Windows Phone. YouTube has continuously broken connectivity of Windows Phone third-party apps that offer consumers a way to watch videos online.
It's good to see an update so quickly released. You can download Metrotube from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 (£0.79).

Metrotube8 for windows 8 and Windows RT
I just hope the Lazyworm guys keep supporting their awesome app in the future.
How you enjoying scrubbing through videos? Oh wait, you can't.
With MetroTube most of them run.
ANd for 3g poor connection for us from Brazil, Metrotube is perfect.
When Google changed it's API why weren't Windows 8 and Windows RT YouTube apps not affected? I would assume they would treat Windows RT/8 the same shabby way they treat Windows Phone 7.5/8
My humblest apologies.
That is all
And I add my YouTube account... Perfect
Preload works fine to me.
