YouTube for Symbian is a simple YouTube player. It doesn't have all the features of YouTube in a web browser on your computer, but you can watch YouTube videos on your phone with it. YouTube for Symbian is a lot faster than mobile Java YouTube applications.
The new version of YouTube for Symbian didn't come with a changelog and I couldn't find any new features, so I guess the new stuff is all under the hood.
YouTube for Symbian is not for everybody, but there are ways around that. When you install YouTube it asks you to pick your location from a list of only 5 countries, but that doesn't matter. Just pick any country you like and the program will work. And if you can't downoad the latest YouTube for Symbian version from the official YouTube site, you can get it from Mobile Castle.
Tip: you can erase your search history and other private data, but that option is hidden in the help menu.
• m.youtube.com (on the fly installer)
