    Im a new android phone user and I bought the xperia x10 mini pro this week. I dont seem to be able to open videos on youtube at the moment though from my browser. Was hoping to find some ideas on how to fix this problem. (I get directed to a page saying the url is currently not available)

    Thanks in advance!

    I read about this app, but I can't seem to find it on my cell anywhere. Is there a link to download it somewhere?

    Hm no I haven't. That might be a good idea though, I'll give it a shot.

    hi why don't you try playing a music track and then hitting the infinity button. with my phone that opens some related youtube links. from there you'll already be in youtube so should work???

    Ok this actually worked. It played the youtube clip in the list just fine. However is it possible to go to the main youtube menu from that function?

    As for the youtube app available on market. I tried looking for it but I can't find it. A link would be nice if anyone else does!

    Try calling the place where you bought the phone. Im pretty sure that its supposed to have the youtube app already installed. Mine already has one when i bought it. :D

    what about Google Mobile - then choose UK or US version (only ones I tried) and you'll find the youtube link.

    URL automatically changed to "Google Mobile" put the cursor over it and the URL will show in your browser somewhere (in Chrome bottom left corner)

    Ok so I've downloaded one of the youtube search and download apps (well two actually) and through these I'm actually able to search and view the youtube vids so that problem is solved.

    Only annoying thing is that one of the apps (Videobox) has a stupid commercial bar. And the other (JetVD-Youtube), although really nice, does not turn when I open my keyboard. This is indeed quite annoying for this type of phone.

    Any of you guys know of other good apps for youtube searching/viewing and downloading?
