ThumbsUp YouTube app comes to Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 phones

YouTube is a phenomenon, the perfect playground and medium for the vidiot generation, and I personally am extremely grateful to the designers, those who contribute to the site as well as the guys who maintain it. But what most people, including myself are even more grateful for are the portable versions for mobile handsets. Until now very few manufacturers have bothered to incorporate a preloaded YouTube client onto their handsets. Apple?s iPhone and HTC are two of the few that have managed to deliver.

However, the limitation has been expanded and YouTube has now come up with the perfect solution by designing and releasing native applications for the Symbian S60 platform as well as another version for Windows Mobile
devices.


This means application start-up, searching and video load times should now be quicker, and improved buffering will allow videos to play even in weak areas.

The application will now also automatically detect your device and network capabilities, and select the highest available stream quality for you.

Finally, streaming over WiFi has also been improved, and supports a wider range of networks.

The application will alert you as more improvements become available, so keep an eye out for updates.


You can download the YouTube app now by heading to YouTube on you mobile browser, or check out the YouTube blog for more information.

Re: YouTube app comes to Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 phones

The application was updated to add support and optimization for Windows Mobile devices and a number of Symbian Series S60 devices, specifically 3rd edition (Feature Pack 1 and Feature Pack 2) phones. In addition, the application is reportedly up to 90% faster in startup, searching and loading video, with better quality adjusted automagically whether you're on 3G or Wi-Fi. Google says more improvements and features are on the way, with in-app notifications and one-click upgrades when they roll out.

Re: YouTube app comes to Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 phones

Once installed, no configuration is required outside of the application," Google wrote on its mobile blog. "We've worked really hard to make video playback just work."

The app enables users to watch videos, view a list of the top-rated clips, and search for videos. Once a consumer chooses a video, it plays in landscape mode with the standard YouTube controls. The application can be downloaded from youtube website, and it's available for most Windows Mobile handsets like the Touch Diamond.
