The Google owned video sharing site YouTube is a great source of video content for desktop computer users, but what about the times you find yourself on the road and want to access the site using your smartphone? The fact that you can access YouTube on your mobile device is not a new feature, what is new is the YouTube app (for windows Mobile and Symbian) that has been made available to the general public

“Our goal is to provide you with a great YouTube experience wherever you want to watch videos -- whether it's on your computer, on your television, or on your mobile phone. While YouTube has been available for many mobile phones for over a year, today we're taking a big step forward with a new version of our mobile YouTube application. It's optimized for most Windows Mobile and Symbian Series 60 devices. In addition to providing YouTube on more phones than ever before, it's also up to 90% faster starting up, searching, and video loading and gives you better video quality that's automatically optimized to your WiFi or 3G network,” explains David Stewart, Product Marketing with the YouTube Team.


The process of getting the YouTube app is quite simple: all you have to do is visit this web page via your Windows Mobile or Symbian powered device and download it straight from YouTube. An alternate download location is available here. The app gives you standard YouTube controls (pause, volume, jump) and automatically starts video playback in landscape, full screen mode.

Here is a quick list of Nokia manufactured devices the YouTube app will work on: 5320 XpressMusic, 5630 XpressMusic, 5700 XpressMusic, 5730 XpressMusic, 6110 Navigator, 6120 classic, 6121 classic, 6124 classic, 6290, 6650, 6710 Navigator, 6720 classic, E51, E55, E63, E66, E71, E75, E90, N76, N79, N81, N81 8GB, N82, N85, N86 8MP, N95, N95 8GB.

Please note that the list presented above is not exhaustive, it is just a sample list. If you do not have one of the devices listed above, keep in mind that the YouTube app will work on Nokia S60 3rd edition (Feature Pack 1 and Feature Pack 2) devices and on Windows Mobile powered smartphones.
