    For anyone having problems downloading the Youtube application, I put the .cab file up on my file's section:

    http://sites.google.com/site/darkdomino/Home/files

    Should be at the bottom. Enjoy

    Oh and is anyone else having a problem where you try to "backspace" in the search field and it minimizes the application to your homescreen instead of erasing the text? This seems to be happening every time, and it's nothing major but it's kinda annoying. Either way it's a really nice application, and I actually removed Kimona FreePlayer for this.

    thumbs up for google!

    To be honest, I was hyped while downloading youtube, but after using it I am a little disappointed. The picture is crisp, but about 9 out of 10 videos I've played take a few seconds to start actually moving(while the sound goes on), and I often hit a lot of picture lag. A few videos were HD, and ran super smooth, but the other vids... not so much.

    Is everyone here watching videos perfectly? If so, maybe I should try a hard reset on my device.

    I've found that it's pretty much all dependent on your EVDO signal strength... anything less than 2 bars seems to make Youtube videos unplayable, as they will buffer every 5 seconds, if it even plays at all.

    When my network is solid, so is the app. So it is just like any other computer: if there is bandwidth, you can stream. It isn't the app's fault our networks generally are spotty. Wifi sure would be nice though.

    Same thing is happening to me. Hopefully they'll come out with a newer CAB that fixes this.

    Things the youtube app needs:

    1. Favorites, Subscription, Commenting, Rating

    2. The ability for the Youtube app to intercept youtube links in I.E. and via email/sms

    3. Fix it so it doesn't minimize the app when you try and backspace in the search field.

    4. Ability to SMS/email youtube links to friends

    It would also be great to have some control over buffering.

    Same problem with backspace on Q9 Global. You would think that there would be some way around this like pressing the function key before using the backspace, but it doesn't seem to work. I wonder if BlackJack II owners are having the same problem, since they have a dedicated backspace key? I remember that being one of the only advantages of the BlackJack II keyboard over the Q9h. It didn't seem like a big issue at the time and I would still pick the Q.

    Youtube Application Q9c Installation

    Hello, has anyone had problems after installation where the words are characters/wingdings and not the alphabet letters?

    In the dialog window, where it tells you to choose the country and captions of the videos are all characters.

    Upgraded to 6.1 and reinstalled the Youtube app.

    Can't figure it out... any supplement to download?

    For those of u that are irritated by not being able to backspace if u mess up what your searching for just tap the right soft key for menu then the left soft key to cancel and it highlights your text and deletes it when u start typing again. Hope it helps if some of u haven't noticed that yet and hate hitting the back arrow and leaving the app :)

    The upgraded YouTube client has officially been broken on my phone. I dunno what they did to it, but I am having all sorts of problems.

    The app itself crashes a LOT. If a youtube video ends and you hit a button, it crashes. If you try to pause a movie, it crashes.

    As it stands, the app is just about unusable on this phone.

    I'll post the error message when I get home. It's something about an app "window" error

    oh and I tried reinstalling the app after a master reset...same thing

    I have the .cab for the older version (2.02) but I have no idea how to post it...I can e mail it if you need it. (Or, explain how to post it...)
