Type "youtube" in the search feature and you will find discussion and the answer, which is "no."

Its true you can't watch youtube videos on your phon e but there is an alternative. www.tinytube.com they post all the vids small enough to watch on the phone and you can watch youtube videos plus vids from a few other vid websites right from your phone. The bigger clips give the berry the hicups every now and then but for the most part they work ok. And here's one more vid site you can go to if'n yous bee's over 18 lol [phonerotica] fill in the rest didn't want to put in the www er the com not as to get anyone mad for a pron link on the forum.
So there ya go problem solved :P

Its actually tinytube.net. Its not that great and I found that when you download and watch a video it causes a huge memory leak in the internal phone CPU. Which makes you do a battery pull sooner than normal.

It's common knowledge that anyone can use your "workarounds" such as downloading or "ripping" YouTube videos off of their Site, converting them into Pearl format, then placing them on the Pearl's MicroSD chip.

That is not the same as watching YouTube videos like we do on our PC's.

And to give him the technical answer, there are two reasons why he can't play streamed YouTube videos on his Pearl, 1) the browser has limited functionality, aka there is no flash player or capability to play streamed video; and 2) the Pearl's EDGE speed is way too slow to play streamed video. When 3G come, yes, but not at this time.

TinyTube is a nice concept but it's only that, a concept or beta.

IMHO since the Pearl can play any video I want, after I convert it into Pearl format, these sites that let you download little 30 second clips is kind of silly and useless. It takes too long to access them and they are only short clips.

I yawned after seeing my first TinyTube video.

And I would be labeled pretty desperate [and a degenerate?] if I tried out an "adult oriented" video site on a cell phone.

My comment was not directed at your providing a link, it is what I would consider myself if I was looking at porno sites on the Pearl's little display. I would only need to do that if I was pretty desperate and a degenerate, IMHO.

I mean, how pathetic would I be if needing to look at sex sites while at the airport or in line somewhere?

But I do question referring members to a porno site to "see how the Pearl works." I think that might violate BBF rules. To each their own, of course.
