    YouTube app for 9550

    Has anyone been able to push the old 9530's YouTube app onto their Storm 2 yet?

    I'm talking about: This one

    I think if we had an .alx file and the YouTube app files from some one's backup it could be done but I don't know for certain. I've been looking for non Google hosted OTA's but no luck so far. If anyone has a link and doesn't mind sharing it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I stopped using the YouTube App after I completed the Optimization trick using the native browser. I would recommend you do a forum search for "youtube optimization" or "youtube fix" on this forum or CrackBerry.com. Sorry I can't provide the link. I'm doing this reply from my phone.

    I've searched but haven't found any thread on both sites of a fix. How do you optimize the quality of the videos?

    Here is the post that besjr69 is referring to. It was taken from crackberry and the authors name is in the quote.

    click "optimize"
    click "start optimization"
    test 1/7: click "yes" when you see the tiny grey heart
    test 2/7: click "yes" when you see the puppy
    test 3/7: click "no" when the flash lite video fails
    test 4/7: click "click here" when pressing "5" key does squat
    test 5/7: there is no test 5 for some reason - skip to test 6/7
    test 6/7: click "YES" - the mp4 test video WILL FAIL BUT CLICK "YES" ANYWAY
    test 7/7: click "no" - h.263 does not work


    Click HERE or email yourself the link if "Optimize" does not appear at the bottom of your page.


    your videos should play now

    This is what I did even though I already had the YouTube app installed.
