Youtube Iphone App

By: Mel Joelle


YouTube is the Internet’s most popular web site for watching and sharing streaming video clips. Videos on YouTube are encoded with the Adobe Flash plug-in, which is unfortunately not compatible with many mobile devices, including Apple’s popular iPhone line of smartphones.



Fortunately, Apple has a standalone YouTube app that can be used to watch streaming videos from the site directly on an iPhone, either over a wireless broadband or Wi-Fi Internet connection. There is even a YouTube app available for Apple’s iPad, if watching videos on a tablet is more to your liking.



The YouTube app for iPhone is great for enjoying video clips while you are on the go or just passing time when you are away from the computer. Browsing videos is simple and very intuitive using the YouTube app interface. For example, on the home screen of the app, users can find videos based on what clips are featured or most popular. This is great for keeping up to date on the most popular viral videos when on the go or just figuring out what trends are happening on YouTube. Tapping the “More” icon on the app allows users to see even more of the most recent clips uploaded to YouTube.



If there is a specific video that an iPhone user wants to watch on YouTube, the app has a convenient search feature. Simply tapping the “Search” icon on the iPhone touch screen when the app is open will allow a user to type in a search query and find the videos they want to watch. However, it is worth noting that not all videos on YouTube can be found through the iPhone app. This is due to the fact that YouTube allows their users to decide whether or not the videos they are uploading can be watched on mobile devices, such as the iPhone. If a video found on the actual YouTube site is not found when searching for it on the iPhone app, it is likely that the uploader does not want to have their video streamed in this manner. Unfortunately, there is nothing that an iPhone user can do to watch clips that have mobile streaming disabled.



Also, the iPhone YouTube app allows users to go back to their favorite videos in two different ways. First, iPhone users can bookmark their favorite videos for fast and easy access. Also, the YouTube app for iPhone saves the viewing history of a user, which is convenient for pulling a video watched previously on the mobile device. However, iPhone YouTube app users should not worry about having unwanted videos listed in their history, as videos can be easily deleted from the list if necessary.



The video quality of the YouTube app is actually much better than watching on a standard computer, mostly due to the high quality and smaller screen size of the iPhone screen. Tapping the screen while a video is playing will bring up playback controls and also allows users to e-mail videos to friends.
