Windows Phone 7 App Showcase: YouTube Plugin

Advertisement

While you may not be able to access HTML5 or Flash videos in Windows Phone 7, you can now watch YouTube videos that you come across on the web. This simple plugin will add a play button to any YouTube video (like you’ll find in Android or the iPhone), and will subsequently launch the YouTube player. There’s also a program associated with the plugin, but it simply loads m.youtube.com. What’s more, you don’t have to search for the plugin. If you try to play a YouTube video, you’ll get redirected to the Marketplace for a quick download.
