    Hey there guys! I am helping my friend with her 3G iphone. She tells me that she cannot access Yahoo videos via her phone, but she can access Youtube and watch videos. Can you guys confirm this or is this just her phone?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, doesn't YouTube use flash also? Their videos are in .flv format.

    some of the videos use flash, some use h.264 so some of them are viewable on the iphone. Also, its easier just to use the youtube app on the iphone instead of going thru safari.
