Updated v188.8.131.52 ready for download !
YouTube Player is YouTube search/player application which featuring full FLV. Bit like the latest CorePlayer. There are separate apps to download videos from YouTube
It allows you to search for videos in a nice friendly Windows Mobile app and then plays the full FLV video (not miniscule MPEG4 versions) with its own player.
The app is written in a mixture of .net and C so you need the .net runtime, v2.
The video player overlay is hacked out of TCPMP and the FLV part is based on FFMPEG.
Things planned: Support for YouTube logons, video uploads, user favorites and better caching/buffering.
Things not planned: Other video sites.
- Square mode not quite right.
- Other character sets (Chinese etc.) dont work apparently.
- Close button sometimes takes a few pushes.
Everybody should note that this application will eat bandwidth, no consideration has been made for data consumed, so Wifi/ActiveSync or unlimited 3g only, be prepared for a big data bill otherwise. Wont work well on GPRS anyway as FLV vids are quite sizeable.
- New: Fully works on Pocket PC 2003 now, found the horrid bug that stopped it.
- New: Will open and play VP6 (On2) FLV files, slow but should work.
- New: Uses newer version of FFMPEG SVN from a few days ago.
- Fix: Fullscreen should work if you start in landscape mode now.
- New: Added the facility to extract the audio as an MP3 from any saved FLV.
- Fix: HTC Streaming Media option should now work again.
- NOTE: I have now removed any efforts at getting this to work on devices with less than WM5, just wouldnt work.
v184.108.40.206 updated 27/10/08:
Fix - "Failed to get security cookie" message, this was caused by YouTube changes. I have now entirely changed the way this bit works so that it is more like the flash player and should be a bit more resiliant to changes. Fix - May work on Pocket PC 2003 devices again, please test.
v220.127.116.11 updated 10/10/08, changes:
Fix - -3 play error, which was caused by internal YouTube changes and some bad code!
- Fix: Crash when switching to play video (problem on Kaiser ROM "Mobile Vista v1.3" and maybe others).
- New: Added AppToDate support - had to change download location to my server.
- Fix: Can now reliably retrieve up to 50 results.
- New: Reverted config and results forms back to non fullscreen to enable SIP and menu.
- New: Hardware keys - dpad up/down = vol up/down, dpad right = ffwd, dpad left = back.
