Yes. Go to http://m.youtube.com from your BB Browser.

Well I got through to the mobile site, but when I click on a video I get a "Protocol Not Supported" error. If memory serves there was a discussion on how BB doesn't support YouTube but there is an alternet site TinyTube.net , hope this helps some of you.

Wirelessly posted (Curve 8330)

I have a brand new Curve 8330 and I can watch videos from YouTube but only if I change my Emulation Mode to Blackberry. Try that and see if it works.

I do believe youtube is only supported on OS 4.3 or higher, so if you have 4.2 then you would need to upgrade. Also, at least with the Verizon Pearl, and possibly other devices, you will get the "An error occurred while trying to render the page" error every time you try to watch a video IF Audio Boost is turned on in your media player options (I am well aware that people with other devices can have audio boost on with no problems)

T-Mobile is still listing OS 4.2 on their site. Is there any indication that they'll officially support a later version?

You do not need 4.5. I have OS v4.3 and can see YouTube videos just fine on my Curve.

4.3, which became 4.5, as we know it had several changes to the Media Player to allow for handling of progressive download media, and streaming media. This was not functional pre-4.3.

You're going to need to upgrade to 4.5 for YouTube to function properly.

Can any of you that have m.youtube.com working on your curve confirm that you are doing so via wi-fi? At least on the 8320??

thanks

I only get UMA where I live and it works on 4.5.0.52. I don't know how it does on EDGE.

I am not using wi-fi to view YouTube videos as I have no wi-fi capability on my Verizon Curve 8330. I am running OS v.4.3. I have no problem viewing YouTube videos as long as my browser's emulation mode is set to Blackberry.

If you have a T-Mobile than chances are that you will not be able to stream the Youtube videos. 4.5 is required. However, although 4.5 exists for the 8320, it (the unofficial release) is not recommended, as it has done damage to many a SIM Card. I would just be patient and wait until the official release, or jump all over the bold when it comes out.
