YouTube to feature on wider range of mobile phones

Popular video Web site YouTube.com is opening up its service to run on millions more phones which are capable of using high-speed wireless links, the company said on Thursday.

YouTube, a unit of Google Inc, says it is extending its service from a handful of phones to a broader range of devices used by 100 million consumers worldwide that rely on high-speed links to stream videos to mobile screens.

"It's basically the full YouTube experience you can get on the desktop -- on the phone," said Dwipal Desia, YouTube's mobile product manager. "We expect it to get fairly popular from our past experiences."

The Web video sensation now only provides a full mobile video service to users of Apple Inc's iPhone and to devices sold by Helio, a small U.S. wireless provider that targets young, tech-savvy consumers. Helio is a unit of SK Telecom Co Ltd and EarthLink Inc

Seriously who bothers with Youtube mobile? It has a very very TINY subset of the video actually available on Youtube.

I can watch them on my phone, but honestly it's just a waste of time and bandwidth.

With the iPhone and iPod touch you at least get access to ALL the videos on the site

n95 owners update to the new firmare...
it supports flash videos directly from the browser... you can now play any flash video site like youtube daily motion veoh
from the browser itself.

The iPhone only has access to YouTube Mobile. Because of their limited bandwidth. I already have access to the full YouTube with my Windows Mobile 5 smartphone.

Find the software need for this here:
