Getting a YouTube video saved on your iOS device should be a piece of cake. If you still don’t know that, check out this post.
How about converting a video into a ringtone? Can you do that without a tutorial?
I’d bet not!
If you ever wanted to create your own ringtone using a YouTube video, there are Cydia tweaks that you can use.
Before you start, install ToneEnabler.
Our first tweak is called Easy Ringtone. This package allows you to download video from YouTube or even tracks from Soundcloud and convert them to ringtone.
The tweak itself pretty much does complete the process. All you need to do is head over to the ModMyi repo, install Easy Ringtone, and tap on Respring.
There will be a standalone app after. Launch Easy Ringtone and using its built-in browser, go on YouTube. Search up a music video you like and choose Download.
Upon downloading, you got several options to choose from.
- Edit the ringtone (Fade in, Fade out, etc.)
- Set the ringtone as your default ringtone
See? That was easy and quick. As we mentioned, YouTube is not the only outlet you can use. Any downloadable contents from SoundCloud or other sites are acceptable as well.
Another amazing tweak
Download & Convert let you save any videos from YouTube and convert them into audio or ringtone files right on your device. This means no external app or connecting to a computer.
Step 1: Open up your Cydia app and go to the ModMyi repo or you can switch over to the Search tab
Step 2: Simply type in the name of the tweak and install
Step 3: YouTube is built-in right into this app, you can search for any music video or just regular video and then select Download
Converting from Videos to Audio
Step 1: Now that you’ve downloaded the video of your choice, go to the Videos tab
Step 2: Choose a video and click Convert
Step 3: Choose between Audio or Ringtone
How to Transfer using iTunes
Ok, so I said no computer. And I kept my word (with the first tweak :D). But if you want to use a computer, follow the instructions below.
- Connect your iPhone to a computer and open up iTunes
- Click the Apps tab from the selected device
- Look for File Sharing Tab and click on YouTuber app
- Pick your audio and click “Save as.”
- Import and Sync it with your iPhone
Boom! You’re done! Please do not be discouraged by the long steps. Your new ringtone can be found via Settings > Sounds > Ringtone.
Users also have the option to send their audio or ringtones via Email services like Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
