Mobile YouTube – It just doesn’t work

Mobile YouTube   It just doesnt work Right, that’s it. I’ve had dozens of emails about Mobile YouTube and how great it is for mobile users. Many have asked why we haven’t covered this, especially after we mentioned several ways to get YouTube vids on your phone.

Well, the simple fact is that, for the majority of Windows Mobile devices, just doesn’t work. It’s annoying as heck – especially when some Windows Mobile handsets will play the videos but a lot of others don’t. It should just work – end of story, but unfortunately the reality is somewhat different.
