    Exclamation YouTube replacement development

    I am trying to develop an alternative to YouTube
    It is going to have an icon on the SpringBoard (I hope it works)
    However, I need someone to create the icon for the application.

    Thanks!

    If it's going to replace the YouTube.app, why not use the YouTube.app-icon?

    I never liked YouTube icon, however, it will be used temporarily.

    Hi JSN1, I can help you on the icon thing? What are you planning? It's ok to use the official YouTube logo?

    Ideally we should just get rid of the youtube app all together and replace it with a native running flash plugin for Safari...

    Having a website specific app is really nothing but a hack to try to cover up lack of functionality. Personally I very rarely use Youtube, but having flash support I would find very very useful.

    you should just develop a flash.webplugin for the iPhone that will allow us all to use flash on our iPhones...

    there is a folder on the phone that contains all of the decoders and webplugins for the phone, it shouldn't be that hard to translate a regular osx webplugin to work on the iPhone.

    if you came out with something like that, im sure you'd get a lot more users of your product than if you simply developed an app that restricts you to video.

    Don't underestimate this task. This is a HUGE task, probably much bigger than all work combined to date on hacking the iPhone.

    The iPhone uses a completely different architecture (ARM) than any currently existing flash plugins are designed to run on.

    Judging by how long it is taking the Adobe team to port flash to X86-64 linux, when the X86-32 version has been available for years is a testament to this, and these to architectures are very very similar. ARM is completely different.

    Add to this that all flash plugins are closed source. Either it would have to be undertaken by Apple /Adobe, or started from scratch. There are a few of these reverse engineered projects for *nix systems that have been started from scratch, but they are pretty much useless, due to only supporting up to Flash 6.

    There has been a screaming desire from the linux community for a flash plugin for x86-64 for many years now, and it has not materialized, despite the size of the user community being many times that of the iPhone. This is a testament to the difficulty of this task.

    The only immediate solution I could see would be some sort of ndis-wrapper or rosetta implementation, but even that would be a long shot, and probably run very very slowly.

    I agree that this is the way to go, but I doubt it will happen without an official push from Adobe / Apple to get it done. This is probably outside the scope of what the hacking community is trying to accomplish.
