    Hey, did anyone else notice this, open Safari on your Touch and click on a link to a YouTube video and it opens it in the YouTube app! I have one in my signature at the moment by the way... Try it, cool I think.

    Yes, I've noticed. Actually never had it *not* work (despite reading that not all the vids are available in H.264.)

    And also to not betray the URL of the H.264 videos (which might let people figure out how to sidestep the need for Flash on other platforms).

    Hmm, never done that *yet* So is Youtube converting ALL videos nowadays to H.264 for iPod/Apple TV/General Public?

    That was before the iPhone release. I thought that they were in the process of converting all vids to H.264? (too lazy to dig up linkage.)
