YouTube’s Mobile Plans

At this point vaporware, but YouTube’s Chad Hurley mentioned at a conference today that within the next year YouTube hopes to “have something on a mobile device,” which is probably just a stock answer for now. Right after the Google-YouTube deal, James wrote a note about mobile implications of the deal, if any…YouTube allows users to upload clips from mobile phones (via e-mail), and has a tenuous link with Cingular which sponsored a band competition on the video sharing site. “Perhaps the biggest thing Google could bring to the deal is an easier way to find videos that interest you, which is of particular interest in mobile where you want to download only what you like.”
