Official YouTube App available for Symbian^3

Kraistus from Finland has emailed us (tips@mynokiablog.com) with some screenshots of the new Symbian^3 YouTube App!

Want it?

Here are Kraistus’ instructions:

Download instructions:

1. Use the phone’s native(!) WEB-browser, and go to: m.google.com (For example Opera Mobile won’t work, you won’t have the change to select Youtube)
2. You have to choose a language which is supported in the app(!). Choose for example: English(US)
3. Choose the Youtube icon to download the app to your phone
4. Install and enjoy!

I have not tried this yet but Kraistus says it’s better image quality than previous mobile web youtube (though still needs improvement).

Thanks also to Ashkay who also emailed us a link to blog-n8.fr who also had some screenshots.

    I just installed the app. It’s quite better than before but the video quality still needs improvement IMO.

    Where is the HQ option? Your can watch HQ videos if you in to YouTube from the symbian web browser.

    This version is not designed for the N8. If you open the .sis file with Siscontents, you can see that the target devices are S60v3 FP1 and S60v5 devices… So dont wonder if it lags of good features.

      This new version of Youtube(2.4.10)for Symbian is designed to address the known connection issue, when using N,8 in the previous version. So technically this new version is designed for N8. But let’s not split hairs.

      Hopefully they bring out all new Youtube app for Symbian(^3) devices, that is capable of streaming HD quality videos. The N8 is definitely up for the task.

        Oh, it may be capable, but I wouldn’t count on Google breaking a sweat on rushing out an HD version out.

        After all, they also own the Android platform, so their priorities are to make YouTube look fantastic on large screen Android devices first, iOS second, Blackberry probably third and Symbian last.

    Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! thanks for putting this up. My N8 didnt feel complete without a dedicated (working) youtube app. And it probably wont feel complete until PR 1.1 comes out, but the Youtube app definitely helps.

    I also I hope they update this app to get HD videos as well, but wouldnt be surprised if it takes awhile. Im sure it not a high priority initiative for Google to be helping out the competition.
