Wow.. Just played with the new beta application from YouTube. It is a java app*!! Which is I can tell you a big challenge when your product is video. The app. has an build in flash player (I assume) and does not use the native player in the phone(for N95 it is the Real Player). It is very complete application which looks amazing in landscape mode on the N95. Now they just need to launch a simple uploader and they created a complete new mobile layer on their video distributionservice. Interesting to see that more and more parties are switching to apps as the primary way to offer mobile services. 2008 the year of mobile apps?? 😉
See screenshots below. You can find the beta app here.
*Available for Nokia’s N73, N95, E65, 6110, 6120 and SonyEricsson k800 and w880.
