YouTube Mobile Launched

youtube1.jpgSpotted on Mashable Twitter channel, checked it and works fine! The site has now gone live, providing easy browsing access to YouTube from mobile devices. The mobile homepage carries a warning message: “YouTube Mobile is a data intensive application. We highly recommend that you upgrade to an unlimited data plan with your mobile service provider to avoid additional charges.”

I haven’t tried the upload clips from my mobile phone option to YouTube by following these instructions for this simple reason: users need to upload videos from their mobile phones (or cellphones) to YouTube by sending an MMS message to an email address. Depending on your connection, this can take some time, even to upload short video clips, so be sure to check your dataplan first and/or your MMS pricings before to try this out to avoid surprises. BTW: to all PARENTS: whatch your teenage kids dataplans :-D

Below a short ‘collage’ I made of the browsing experience with example of Paris Hilton Diaries, videos in Real Player. Sorry for the bad picture quality, for one reason or another my mobile screenshot shortcuts don’t seem to work in my Nokia browser :-(
