No more exclusivity, no more workarounds. End of last week, YouTube released its mobile portal which is available now for all WAP 2.0 devices with an included 3GPP video player. Unlike the web version, which is using Flash videos, the mobile version encodes videos in the 3GPP standard.
While mostly all 3G/UMTS devices supports 3GPP as well as 3GPP is the standard for video MMS, for Windows Mobile it means the device has to support 3GPP streaming which isn't a native part of the Windows Mobile platform but has to be implemented by the manufacture of the device.

While most current Windows Mobile smartphones doesn't support 3GPP streaming (even if most of them support 3GPP playback of received files), HTC devices with the so called "Streaming Media" player supports it already. Bellow a video I've made with a HTC Touch, watching one of the available YouTube Mobile videos:

Please note that media streaming consumes a lot of data. So you better have a flat rate or do it via W-LAN.
If you try it on your Windows Mobile device as well, please let us know which one worked and which doesn't.

Cheers ~ Arne
