    YouTube mobile on BB 8830

    Advertisement



    Does anybody know how to access the mobile youtube videos to play on the Blackberrys?

    http://m.youtube.com is the address but when I try to play a video I get an error in rendering the page.

    They stream the video using RTSP/3GP with H265/AMR

    is there a player or an update that I can download to the phone to allow for this to work?

    BB's don't play youtube videos yet, they don't have a flash player. Hopefully there will be an update later that will allow this.

    Are you sure that is true? I know the actual youtube.com uses the flash player, but I think the mobile version uses the same format as the apple iphone codec.

    They actually can't play "streaming" video. tinytube allows you to fully download the file first, which is what makes it different.

    I believe when the 4.3.0 handheld software becomes available for 8830, you will be able to stream Youtube video. 4.3.0 is included in the new Verizon Pearl do out soon, and this feature is included.

    Interesting. I've never really been into youtube. I just went to the site and it loads very quickly for Verizon. And the videos are ready to go almost instantly. I guess all I need to do now is find stuff i actually want to watch haha.

    Everybody has been dreaming of the day when we will have a streaming vid player or flash player. Hope all you want. BB/rim never said it plans to have either on the Standard Blackberries. So I will believe it when I see it and I will certainly not be holding my breath! BB is lame when it comes to multi-media.

    The 8130 steams almost all media I have looked at including youtube via the mobile site. You may need an os updated to do this but then it should work!
