YouTube
Version 1.47 of the official  YouTube app. YouTube stopped supporting Java ME several years ago. This is the newest version I could find. It's very basic, there doesn't even seem to be a fullscreen mode. It also doesn't support screens smaller than 240x320 or touchscreens. I was actually surprised that it works at all.

The YouTube app relies on Java video playback APIs which not all phones have. If your phone can't record and play back videos or play the videos on the YouTube Mobile site at m.youtube.com this app probably won't work either.

  1. Takes to long to load on my LG840G

  2. I think there is a problem with the youtube api, i used to watch videos on it all the time, but now the youtube app skips to the end of the video the second it's finished loading, and the native video player comes up with an error; "streaming server error"

  3. wery good app.but not supporte my phon some time

  4. I wish u give touch version YouTube. I have been more than happy for a long years.

  5. My Innuendo has so far failed to load this app. I get errors of Invalid descriptor and Invalid ID. I've tried loading via the .JAD link on this page, and also pulling in the zip file, extracting the jar file, and sending that to rumkin.

    This app DOES load successfully and run on a Blackberry Bold 9650 that I use for wifi work. However, it never manages to connect to youtube. It displays the Connecting to youtube message and then just sits there until I close the app. (I tested it on a wifi connection today.)

    Both devices are capable of playing videos on m.youtube.com through their native browsers, and both make the connection in a reasonable amount of time, most of the time.

  6. My nokia-asha-305 isn't working on youtube.
    I wish working thise touch youtube.thanks
