    I just read an article about the improved youtube mobile site at m.youtube.com. I have used the youtube app since the ota that was sent out to fix it and downloaded an apk that allowed it to always default to HQ rather than having to change it each time. But I just tried out the mobile site and it is blazingly fast compared to the app. The only thing that would make me not use this over the app is that I didn't see a way to watch the videos in HQ. Am I missing something? Does anyone else have a preference for the mobile site over the app or vice versa?

    I still prefer the app. Smoother video, and higher quality when needed. Because of the Eris' lacking processing power for the Flash Youtube player, it needs the hardware acceleration that it gets from the standard Android player.
