    You Tube picture quality

    I have just starting you tube lately and the picture quality is so bad, and blurry all the time. Is there a fix for this.

    Not really, sorry. The video quality that YouTube chooses for BlackBerry devices is pathetic. I think it's about time that YouTube starts delivering higher quality content for BlackBerry users.

    Nope there is not. I have to look up the exact technical reason but for example the iPhone when it grabs a you tube video it does in h264 which is a much higher resolution. The BB grabs in lower video quality format causing it to look grainy. As far as I know there is no work around except to download the you tube video directly to you SD card and play it from there.

    I'm with you on that. That's why I say YouTube needs to step up it's game for BlackBerry users.

    Thanks for the link. I just tried it out and it still looks miserable.

    Yep it's a joke. the only way to get a good quality you tube video is to download it to your SD card then watch it from there. The picture quality doing it that way is amazing but a total pain in the butt to have to do that each time you want to watch something.
