btw the clips that YouTube has specifically for the iPhone ARE the ones you see when you click HD, the iPhone loads them automatically.
As the iPhone does almost 50% of worldwide mobile web browsing most sites cater for it by providing videos in h.264 format which don't require buying software from Adobe as it is an open format which just needs a normal html link to the file to open.
We don't need no stinking Flash.
I work in a phone store, we got a demo N97 today they are selling so slowly we gotta push that rubbish nobody wants.
Meanwhile iPhones continue to walk out the door.
See the thing is I'd rather have a phone with less functions if it isn't annoying to use, the iPhone is enjoyable to use, the N97 is a pain.
Simple fact of life.

You suddenly had this n97 and it happened to be crap. I never mentioned that i owned one of those. The iphone lacks features and everyone knows that. Have you had a look at the N900, omnia hd, or htc or sony phones. For the same price a person could get a phone which has way more features than the iphone. It may be good for media and web browsing but so are the others. The others have better cameras, video calling, flash support etc. Software can be found for free on the net if one searches for it. Besides this most new phones are coming out with capacitive screens which are responsive as the iphones. Nokia, samsung htc and se are way more advanced.

Moreso with the slow HSDPA it would take ages to load a HD youtube video.
And in the end iPhone does play below the standard quality since it uses the standard youtube strea wich it converts into a lower quality via the 3rd party app it uses.
It looks good because youtube SD is 640 x 480 and 3gs res is 320 x 480 and that's that.
Either way there's plenty of other sites using flash players vor video contnent that iPhone doesn't handle... but what can you expect from a low-end phone?
GPU or no GPU o the 3gs there is no such matter of responsiveness while paying video since it can't handle multitasking.
And no, n97 does not need 3rd party apps for youtube or any other video site! can you believe that?
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2009It has tomorrow's features, you dummy!!!!! What do you want it to do? Clean your shoes???If you consider those to be tomorrows features you seriously need to wake up. You are the dummy
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2009dunno ab n97 but youtube works great on both n82 and 5800. i guess you don't have n97 at all.The HD h.264 Youtube clips look a lot better on the iPhone and because they are rendered on the graphics chip, not the CPU like flash uses the phone remains a lot more responsive.
YouTube clips don't work with Opera Mobile Beta 10 on the N97.
The clips I got using the default browser were of very poor quality and had black on either side.

I am an iPhone 3GS owner myself.. And I totally find its a really superb phone based on EVERYTHING and Im loving it totally. And I dont deny there are other handset that are good themselves. And well every specs of a handset has its Pros and Cons.. Its fair enough if we respect each individual handset and accept it the way it is instead of detesting and criticising the particular handset.
Everything depends on individual needs towards buying a handphone. So why not we all end all these wild commodation and learn to respect each other. Fair enough?
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2009we have better nokia sip voip client in n97
better skype coming soonI'm using an N97 now and its horrible, where's the autocorrect? How come hitting return doesn't start a new line?
you have to jump between opera's keyboard and the physical one.
Do you know how hard it is to type one of these ' '?
you have to use both thumbs on the right of the keyboard and hold down the function key while pressing this key. '
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970So why can't you install skype on an N97, Bec?
Why isn't Nokia sports tracker in Ovi store for the N97?
Why do you have to go to Symbianmobile to get it?
Why do YouTube clips look so horrible on the N97, why aren't they fullscreen?
Why isn't the N97 screen very responsive and why don't things just work the way they should?
Skype for the iPhone is free and has been since it was launched last year a lot of Apps are free.

I was using an N97 this morning, I installed the beta of Opera Mobile 10 on it and it's s@&t, I don't know how anyone can use such a horrible non-responsive interface and say in any way that it's an enjoyable experience.
The simplest things are mind numbingly awful, I just wanted to hurl that rubbish out the window the controlling it was so bad.

If you read through Bec's stupid list, you'll see half the stuff that Bec is whining about is having to install applications and as you seemed to be basing judgements on the iPhone on Bec's list don't you think it's just a little bit hypocritical?
Bec must have something wrong, Bec keeps pasting list over and over.
