YouTube Red is not available in your country? Too bad

France? Sweden? China? Ukraine? Doesn’t matter! YouTube Red available locations does not cover your country yet…

If you are already sick of this red notification above – chill out.

There still is the way to get YouTube Red features no matter where you are.

You’ll just need one tool – a small (but powerful) app, Softorino YouTube Converter.

This is a Mac/PC application, that’s able to download videos or music from YouTube to your iPhone, iPad or desktop computer really F@#CKING quick (yes, we said it).

To make it more visual – watch this video to see it in action with all of its power:

**BONUS: Softorino YouTube Converter works the same way for Facebook, Instagram, DailyMotion or Vimeo videos. And even supports 60FPS.

We’ve decided to put together a table that shows the differences between YouTube Red and a simple workaround that works no matter where you are:

And one more benefit:

Softorino YouTube Converter is muuuch more battery efficient.

Since you’ll be using only native Video and Music players for playback – this will help you play more tracks and videos without wasting your precious battery on streaming from the web.

This is a significant feature in our digital time.

So, now that you know all the “fors” & “againsts” – let’s find out how it works:

How to use Softorino YouTube Converter

You will need to follow only 3 steps to get the job done.

Step #1. Download the recommended app – Softorino YouTube Converter.

Step #2. Use USB cable to connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC.

Alternatively you may use any iOS 5 devices & above. Including iPad or iPod touch. Alternatively, you may simply skip this step if you choose to simply download the YouTube video or audio file to your computer.

Step #3. Go on YouTube & copy the URL of the desired video.

Since SYC has a cool new feature where it’s always on the lookout for a YouTube url in your clipboard, it will be automatically added to the downloading list, so just hit ‘Convert and Transfer to iPhone’.

You will then see a bright blue progress line and when it’s done –


Your video is now in your native Videos app. Go check it out 🙂


YouTube finally unveiled its paid subscription – and it’s definitely a game changer. It has cool features and it would definitely become handy. No doubts, it would dramatically enhance your viewing experience. But only if it was available in your country.

Choice is yours, Neo: to wait until YouTube Red is available in your country or get its features right now using an alternative desktop app.
