    Hi guys, im just wondering if theres any applications or specific browsers that will play mobile youtube (m.youtube.com) and work.

    ive found you get free youtube on certain mobile phone contracts, including my own, but thats only when you use the m.youtube site and not the desktop version (one of vodafones sneaky ploys in the small print)

    it works great on iphone, but when i use it on my mac after connecting with personal hotspot, the mobile site does not play the video but rather automatically open quicktime and fail to play it through there.

    i tried reflection app, but it doesnt work too well and essentially has the same screen size as the iphone. any help would be greatly appreciated

    keep up the good work guys :)

    Set your UserAgent string to a mobile browser. Safari’s “Develop” menu lets you do so.

    Cheers mate, exactly what i was looking for.

    Also I found the ipad ios works much better than the iphone development for any future reference.
