    I was curious as to who actually watches Youtube videos on their iPhone. Me personally rarely do, but I might be missing something.

    eh once or twice. It's kind of a fun option but I rarely use it.

    I personally have an iPod touch, so most of my YouTube enabled use is at home (not sure if YouTube is available over EDGE or not, don't think so), where I prefer to watch videos on my computer rather than my touch, if I was ever away from home at a place with a free Wi-Fi hotspot, then I definitely probably would ;)

    I do occasionally use YouTube on my touch at like 3AM if I'm still up/ too lazy to turn on my computer.

    Occasionally. It's really the most overrated site on the planet since most of the good stuff is pirated. Patton Oswalt pretty much summed it up on "The Root of All Evil": YouTube!! Bring me a farting panda!

    I basically consider YouTube as the evidence of why people actually get paid to be on camera instead of letting any schmuck do it. Even Fox didn't bring us LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!!!!!!!

    To be honest, I don't use the YouTube application on the iPhone because I find it to be a little too limited in terms of how I can search and what not. Hopefully in the future, it will be enhanced so I will be able to log in with my YouTube account and what not. Cheers.

    I do [watch YouTube on my iPhone]. It's not just about the schmucks and their 15 minutes of fame; I've found quite a few rare music videos and performances that I was unable to find anywhere else but on YouTube. So it does have it's redeeming value, for me at least.

    My daughter and I routinely sit on the couch and watch Linea and old Spiderman episodes. She also seems to be intrigued with the old Superfriends intro. The iPhone is the perfect size for her hands.

    With 3G iPhone coming out, the ability to watch videos should improve dramatically. That, and finding something worthwhile to watch, may give me another reason to try it more often.

    I never use the Most Popular or other lookups.... the stuff is just not my style.

    Just yesterday, I searched for "htc diamond" and watched lots of little videos on it.

    Sometimes I'll kick back on the couch, and look up travel videos of places I'm going to. For instance, I ran across a video shot from a taxi going around the shores of Bermuda. It was handy to see before going. Ditto for other places.

    Of course, looking up sexy videos is always a fun pasttime ;) Admit it.

    I do sometimes. It's nice to find American Idol performances that we've missed. I often think of something that I haven't seen in a long time and can often find it there.

    My kids like to watch lots of kid shows, including Scooby Doo, Mega Blok Pirates of the Caribbean stop-motion movies (who has time to make those things??? LOL), old commercials (California Raisins, Chiquita Banana, etc.), and shows that been removed from Free on Demand (they rotate the shows).

    I watch YouTube videos on my iPhone all the time.

    It just drains my battery really quick.

    But whatever. It's fun :D

    Rarely, but I do. This is another reason why I can't wait for the 3G iPhone because maybe finally I could watch clear youtube videos anywhere, anytime.

    I have watched a few, but for the most part I don't really watch them.

    you----

    Ehhh I hardly ever use the youtube feature...but I would probably use the YOUPORN feature if there was one :) Think of the possibilities instead of a boring ringtone or even worse some song I could have some porn come on when certain people call. Think of the possibilities!

    I never use YouTube. I use MxTube, which lets me download videos. A lot better then the YouTube app IMO.

    I use it all the time. Mainly to show others video I have posted and to search for old music videos.

    I was walking through a parking lot the other day and remembered an old music video I haven't seen in a long time. I pulled out my iphone to write myself a note to search for it when I got home. Duh! I did the search right on the phone and watched it before I left the parking lot. Gotta love technology!

    Its useful for me. A lot of my friends are youtube obsessed so they like to talk about every youtube video they watch, so i can pull it up on my iPhone, watch it, and join in so i dont feel left out. Then again, they all suck and i always wish i hadnt done it.
