YouTube, recently snapped up by Google are reportedly looking to go mobile in 2007 with Chad Hurley hoping “have something on a mobile device” by next Christmas (via). Whether the transition works or not is the next thing with YouTube trying to work out a mobile advertising option or port their existing advertising model to the mobile experience.
YouTube themselves already have a mobile service in place and creating a mobile profile when you’re signed in is a breeze, YouTube giving you a unique email address from which to send video from your phone via MMS, alas their present online service is just for uploading videos, not browsing them.
Getting YouTube straight to your mobile would be a massive achievement and if successful could open them up to another massive revenue stream. Best of luck to them too if they can pull it off.
