Sorry, but none of the BlackBerry devices can stream video from YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. The Blackberry browser does not support Flash.

Moving to the 8800 would not improve your situation.

last night after writing this i went to RIM and emailed them this



Ive had my 8100 for about two weeks now and ...one word...amazing...the only thing i cant do with it is to watch streaming video from the web. i understand (from extensively searching the web) that none of the BB's have this capability. is that correct?? and with technology the way its going (zooming right along) is the development team working on this ??there is quite a lot of people who would love to see this . i want streaming video but not at the coast of losing my new found friend ( the track ball)
thank you for your time


ill post the reply when i get it

I agree streaming video is a much desired feature for todays phone users. However, you have to keep in mind many carriers do not want users streaming data unless they are directly paying the carrier for that privilege.

Free streaming = bad for carriers. Therefore, manufacturers are less inclined to include the ability if they want carriers to sell their phones.

There has been talk of a streaming video fix on the carrier side for Verizon that was supposed to roll out today (11/26). Wasn't clear if it was a WM fix only, or for all their phones....

Also, try vTap Video Search from your phone to view videos.
