Hey Product Hunt, I built this to scratch my own itch and catch up on my "watch later" list. Let me know what you think!

@bradjasper Love the idea, Its annoying when I am on the underground and i don't have anything to watch and listen too. This sort of idea is always though for content owners tho as they dont get ad revenue or videos from offline content. Also the sites that offer youtube mp3 downloaders are just people looking to download free music and listen to it offline.

@sab8a Good points! Would love to find a way to still support content creators with this, not sure the best way there right now. Also if I see people using it to download music I’ll likely add some restrictions to help stop it, thanks for feedback!

Clever idea. Useful for those that don't pay for YouTube's premium plan which allows for background audio play in the app.

I would love to use this! However my first attempt was unsuccessful. I tried to paste a longer youtube video (1:20h) and it just froze in "pending". Also, if I close the tab and come back to the site again I would expect to see my podcast channel with 1 item pending or something. Instead it treats me like a stranger :-/

@martin_christov same here. I love the idea, but it doesn't work. Always pending even with short youtube videos.

@martin_christov Sorry for the issues, the server ran out of space! I think that was the problem, I'm upgrading now and everything should get processed, thanks!

Amazing idea. I tried to do it and got Warning: SQLite3Stmt::execute(): Unable to execute statement: database or disk is full in /var/www/listenlater/db.php on line 144
