    File complaints with YouTube. They are in control of the quality.

    It seems to depend on the video or maybe I was doing something wrong when I tested one. The videos online when someone plays one always looks really good (legitimate reviews, not commercials), but when I tested it in the store they seemed pretty bad and a lot smaller.

    I compared the same video on the storm and the Iphone. The storm via mobile youtube and the iphone via youtube app. and well to make a long story short its a win for the bad guys.

    Bad guys = Apple/ At&t

    We probably just need the same app that Vodaphone has and it will be much better streaming.

    If it's not wifi it's your carrier, if you're using wifi it's more likely youtube or the device at fault. Youtube works fine on the bold on wifi or 3g, wouldn't bother trying to access it on 2g/edge as it would blow on any device at that connection speed.

    youtube looks compressed to ****.....the device can do better b/c look at a video from the mem card.

    my (un)educated guess is that you tube is down like that too keep you from using too much of big reds precious bandwidth

    I have no problem watching Utube on my Storm, but I live within sight of a Verizion Cell Tower and have good EVDO Service here. It's all about a good connection speed I believe.

    Are any of you able to access regular YouTube and not the Mobile site and still watch videos?

    It's not possible to access the same videos you would get on the normal YouTube web site because that content is in Flash Video. Flash Video is not compatible with BB.

    Exactly! Did VZ decide to take this app out? or will we have this app later? someone from Vodaphone needs to hook us up with the app.

    Just my assumption but, did VZ take this app out cuz... they knew that the Storm has a great screen and that lots of people will probably be on youtube, and killing VZ bandwidth? haha
