Thanks to PPCGeeks.com, I finally have videos from http://m.youtube.com/ streaming on my phone. Yes, I too can watch the skateboarding dog while riding the commuter rail.
Presumably this works with lots of other Windows Mobile based devices as well, but I’ve only tried it on my Cingular BlackJack (aka Samsung i607).
You have to copy some files to the Windows directory on the device (the HTC Streaming Media player and some codecs, I assume) and install two .cab files to associate the file types with launching the streaming player.
Just follow the directions found here: YouTube Streaming Mobile: A “How To” WM5/M6/SP
I found that at Step #1, I couldn’t copy all the files from the zip into the Windows directory on my device – had to leave out the .HTM and the Shortcut – but it doesn’t seem to have mattered.
One difficulty was finding a volume control – the app seems to assume you have a touchscreen, which I have not – but the up and down on the main control wheel / compass thingie work just fine for volume.
Another quirk – full screen mode requires rotating the phone 90 degrees. Guess they were thinking of landscape.
