YouTube for Mobile

YouTube for Mobile is a mobile application that will allow you to browse and watch YouTube videos from your handset. I have tried it on my Nokia N95, and it works great.

the main features ...
- browse by popular videos (most viewed, top rated, featured), related videos or keyword search;
- sign into your YouTube account and access your own videos, subscriptions and favourites;
- upload videos from the mobile phone to YouTube directly;
- Similar look and feel of the YouTube website version;
- supported phones are Nokia's N73, N95, E65, 6110, 6120 and Sony Ericsson's K800 and W880

some other facts ...
- applicant has been written in java;
- works best with 3G coverage (and my home MyT connection as well);
- video is in .3gp format and of lower quality than the video on the YouTube website;
- supported phones are Nokia's N73, N95, E65, 6110, 6120 and Sony Ericsson's K800 and W880;

YouTube installation ...
To install the YouTube application, use your mobile phone and go to

m.youtube.com/app

and follow the instructions to download and install YouTube on the phone. Upon successful completion, the YouTube icon will appear on the applications menu.

the sound issue on Nokia phones ...
For Nokia devices, you must have the Warning Tones enabled in your phone's settings to hear audio in YouTube. This setting can be found in "Profiles" > "Current Profile" > "Personalize" > "Warning Tones."
