YouTube for S60 updated to v2.2.9

23. July 2009 at 13:00

The YouTube client for S60 devices has been updated from v2.02(6) to v2.02(9). The update brings compatibility with S60 5th Edition however there is still a whole lot missing. What I can’t understand is how the new iPhone 3GS can capture video and upload directly to YouTube from the handset seamlessly, yet it is not even possible to login to your own account through the official S60 client. Surely it can only be a matter of time before Google will show some love to the S60 community, hopefully sooner rather than later. It is also not yet possible to comment/rate a video clip or use search filters.

The update does bring a few interface tweaks to enhance the experience on S60 3rd Edition device, however much of the real estate on the S60 5th Edition devices is wasted due to the inapropriate location of the controls.
