Today, Youtube announced a complete revamping of its mobile Youtube site. What does this mean for the end-user? First off, a much more intuitive layout. For example, the touch buttons and other UI elements have been enlarged. Also, available now are search query selections, the option to like/unlike/favorite a video, and the ability to create playlists, all directly from your phone's browser. Simply put, the complete desktop Youtube experience on your smartphone.
Now to get to the most intriguing improvements: a much speedier experience, and a High Quality video option. When, in the past, the mobile Youtube site would default to an extremely low quality for a clip, now there is an option to stream the video in high quality, without ever entering that Pesky old Youtube app.
Check out a video introduction to the new Youtube Mobile Site:
