    This does. Since you are looking for YouTube and tried Skyfire, I am assuming you have a data plan. Follow these steps EXACTLY!!

    The easiest install is directly to the device.


    (1) Open internet explorer
    (2) Open browser address bar (in Internet Explorer, on the phone, click right soft key<menu<address bar)
    (3) type into address bar:

    http://mq.roeiboot.com/apps/tcpmp.
    smartphone.0.72rc1.cab

    (Type it without spaces...)

    Install this to either the phone or storage card.

    (4) Reboot phone (turn off and on again)

    (5) Back to address bar
    (6) Type into address bar:

    http://mq.roeiboot.com/apps/FlashVideoBundle.CAB

    (7) Reboot phone

    Hope this helps!

    After you re-boot the phone for the last time, there will now be a link for Video Sites put in your start up menu. Click on the YouTube link. This fix is for Pocket Internet Explorer only, so if you are using another browser, it will not work.

    If you are in PIE, make sure you are going to the "full" You Tube siten, not the mobile site.

    maybe you need to go into file associations within tcpmp and check mark those files you want tcpmp to play?

    Download and install vTap located at http://www.vtap.com - it will automatically detect your windows mobile version and download the appropriate version of vTap. This is a fantastic app for viewing all streaming videos, not just YouTube.

    Good Luck.
