    Advertisement



    I saw this link: http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/youtube/y...ive-269501.php says that Youtube is available for 3g. I went to the the site: m.youtube.com and only got a message asking me to give my phone number so then can sms me when it works. Hmmm is it working or not. One of the comments on the gizmodo site says it won't work on a BB 8800. I know I've played some 3g stuff from onother web site (Mojoflix) so hopefully youtube will finally be on my Pearl. Someday soon.

    are you trying from your BlackBerry? it won't work to the best of my knowledge, because the browser doesnt' support the needed protocols. The link works fine on my Samsung Sync though

    yep trying on the Blackberry. I guess I'll stick with Mojoflix. Not at many videos but at least it works on the Pearl and I can save the vid if I like it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~from what I undrestand the 3g phones. Or any phones that support flash or even the windows mobile 6 will support it. Hopefully it'll work for the other phones soon. I know in the mean time most pearl users are going to tinytube.net

    I can play all youtube on bb wihout any problems.
    m.vtap video depend on the source:
    e.g Wall Street journal, plays
    music plays too (though, I always select low quality for faster download)

    no extra software installed bb 8139/4.3.0.81

    I also have the 8130 and can view videos from the m.youtube.com site. They all play, but many of them start out a funny greeninsh color for the first second or two then play mormally, and if I hit play again, they play fine with no green. I don't know if anyone else experienced this or not or if it's just a wierd quirk with my Pearl.

    to watch youtube, currently device must be RTSP capable. 8130 is.

    greenish color is probably an artifact caused by insufficient data buffered before media player wills. When you play video second time all info is cached already.
    I don't know if there is a way of increasing amount of cached data before player starts.
