are you running the 7-24-10 fw? That seems to have boned youtube and other streaming apps. I decided to let all the lemmings jump first, so I'm on 7-18, and things are fine.

Is there any way to uninstall using ADB? I installed after the 7/24 update, and my version doesn't work. It doesn't show up in Manage Applications for me to remove it, but I can't install a newer version because ADB tells me it already exists.

If you then install the google experience again, it will be updated with a working YouTube.

I get HQ videos, smooth streaming, no stuttering. It's actually a pretty positive experience. Of course, like others have noted: if you try to access Youtube through a browser you get FAIL due to lack of Flash.

I have the new FW and the YouTube apk works like a champ.Also I took Floodit and Jewels off my phone and installed them on the PDN and they both work great as well. The one thing I am still having problems with is getting the marketplace to work with the "ugly hacK", but, oh well...can't have everything.Anyway, everything works with the new FW so I'm not going to undo anything.

You Tube didn't work. I didn't take any apps from my phone. I took the YouTube app that was linked from a post on the previous page. First, I moved it into the Google Experience folder as suggested and reinstalled Google Experience. Didn't work. I then installed it as a regular app through Estrongs. It worked until I rebooted. The app acts like it's starting to open and then I end up back at the home screen.As I said, I'll keep investigating.

Many apologies, but editing my post doesn't work, or I'd do that. Success! Here are the steps I took:1. Put YouTube.adb in the same directory as adb.exe2. Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory3. Type: adb remount adb push YouTube.apk /systen/app/YouTube.apk4. RebootNot sure if step 4 was needed, but it seemed like a good idea.
