Mobile YouTube shows off cell phone app frustration

OK, I have a $750 Nokia N95. Certainly it would be able to play the new mobile YouTube videos. Nope. It tries to open the only player on my cell phone, which is a Real Networks one. And, of course, it gives me an error on loading the videos.

We’re a long way from getting mobile apps on cell phones that work. It’ll be interesting to test the iPhone on this site. I bet IT works cause Eric Schmidt has one in his pocket and can get the YouTube team to fix its issues.

Regarding iPhone. Turns out I’m going to be camping out in front of some store in San Francisco. Hopefully with a bunch of weirdo Apple freaks. That would make my son very happy. We’ll be reporting from wherever we end up. Anyone camping at a San Francisco store to get an iPhone?

  1. Hey guys, we are upgrading our system as we speak, at this time, but we have already a system that can mobilize YouTube. We are carrier independent. There is NO addtional software download with your services. Our services are FREE to try as long as your cell phone is web-enabled. Check US out, give us feed back so we can even make it even better.

  3. In your N95 go to RealPlayer, open options, configurations, streaming, and adecuate your conection conditions, say no to proxy (most probably), and in RED be sure that the default point acces is the same your phone use to conect to web, WiFi or Internet instead of WAP or Streaming, It Works, even here in Venezuela with Movistar, Telefonica provider

  5. Movy.tv is a mobilizing YouTube site.
    You can download and install our mpeg4 player on
    your Nokia and you will be able to search and play
    all the videos/audio on the site including a couple of television channels.

    You will able to be able to upload videos/audio and
    have them “mobilized”, just like YouTube…
    but you will be able to mobilize what you want when you want

  7. Thanks for the tip Jake

    I went to “m.youtube.com” on my N95 and can see lots of YouTube mobile videos.

    I’d recommend doing it through your wi-fi connection to make use of your fast broadband connection and to avoid paying a fortune to mobile companies

  9. Mobile You Tube works great on my HTC Vox. It’s just a shame that most of the fun videos aren’t on mobile You Tube

  11. Mobile YouTube DOES work on N95s and all other S60 phones. You just need to change some settings if it doesn’t immediately.

    If you want to know how visit my S60 blog at http://www.S60tv.com . The exact article is at http://www.tinyurl.com/2xk974 .

    But I must agree that it is frustrating that things still don’t work. Last year there was this site http://www.tinytube.com I think, and it did it well but then YouTube sent them a cease and desist so they moved to provide mobile videos from other sites…
