YouTube on Dopod

I always thought (stupid me) it is difficult to play YouTube videos on my smartphone as I don’t want to download the Flash plug in (like TinyTube or TCPMP plug-in) to play the non-standard flv format. Furthermore, I don’t want to manually download / transfer the videos to the smartphone to play – just too cumbersome !!

Not until today I know YouTube actually released the mobile version last June … Stupid me again !! Just surf to m.youtube.com from your IE mobile will do !! Some screen shots:

Search your favorite video:

Find the right video you want:

Stream it thru the Windows Media Player in full screen mode:

One warning though, one must remember that streaming video costs a lot of money if you don’t have unlimited data plan for your phone or an unlimited Wi-Fi connection.
