    Default YouTube Alternative

    If you can't access YouTube though the iPhone built in app then you can still get a mobile version at m.youtube.com. Not the perfect solution I agree but it works quite nicely.

    Have you been able to watch videos this way on your iphone?
    When I try to watch a video via m.youtube.com, Safari says "can't open because the address is invalid"

    I got the same error message too. I heard about this could work on Nokia Symbian smart phone. But you must set the address in Real Media Streamming player. There is no way to set the address in iPhone. So, I don't think it will work.

    It can't download it because the video links point to .3gp files, which are 3G videos. The iPhone can't play these, but recent cell phones can. Maybe a future update will allow more video filetypes to be played through the iPhone media player...or perhaps some clever codec/extension programming.

    I must apologise. I have been using m.youtube.com on my HTC Touch but hadn't in fact tested it on the iPhone. Just tried it and alas it doesn't work. As the last poster points out the iPhone obviously doesn't support 3gp files. Shame. Sorry for assuming, not testing and getting everyones hopes up.

    I just searched for Youtube alternatives here and tried it (I have edge with the T-Zones hack) and it works! For those who can't get it to work, you can try http://tinytube.net. I find this to be much better, though.

    I tried that. Not worth it.
    Counting down for iPhone 2012 =)
