YouTube Updates Website To Support iPad, iPhone

by on July 8th, 2010

This week, YouTube announced that it has updated its mobile website to support a modern browsing experience found on devices such as an iPad or iPhone.

The videos seem to have all been converted to HTML5, h.264, or equivalent supported video formats that work with iPhone, iPad, and other mobile devices.

The update website can be found at http://m.youtube.com from your mobile device. YouTube notes the following enhancements:

  • It’s really fast.
  • The user interface incorporates larger, more touch-friendly elements, making it easier to access videos on the go.
  • It incorporates the features and functionality you’ve come to expect from the .com site, like search query suggestions, the options to create playlists, the ability to designate “favorite,” “like” or “unlike” videos directly from your device.
  • As we make improvements to Youtube.com, you’ll see them quickly follow on our mobile site, unlike native apps which are not updated as frequently.

The updates to YouTube seem to make YouTube more functional than the native iPhone app but just like in the app, the new mobile website of YouTube plays perfectly on the Safari browser on iPad or iPhone.
