emTube - YouTube client for S60 phones

Sebastian Jedruszkiewicz has released the first version of emTube, a YouTube client application and FlashVideo player. emTube allows you to browse (by search, by featured video, by top rated videos and by most viewed videos), view and download YouTube videos or play back a locally stored file. It is an impressively polished application for a first release and this is the best YouTube / FlashVideo solution for S60 phones I have seen thus far. emTube is freeware and is available for all S60 3rd Edition phones

Read on in the full article.

youtube apps are coming by bucket-loads nowadays, huh

but this is clearly the best one, and the fact that he ported ffmpeg to Symbian is something! The auto-rotation is pretty well implemented and the volume indicator while in fullscreen is nice.

Doesn't work on n95-3

Downloaded and installed the N95-accelerometer supporting version. No dice.

App opens, searches, (or gets a list of favorites etc.) perfectly smooth. Everything nice and dandy. As soon as I try and playu it though the little spinner goes forever, usually ending in a network (-302) error. Often times when I leave this screen the application crashes.

Tried ~10 times; not one worked. Once or twice the timer showed up (eg: 0:00/3:05) however immediatly after it popped up "Unsupported Format".

I.... spoke to soon. On the 11th try, after about a minute of spinner, video started. Meh. I'm in a 3G area where download speeds are usually ~50KBps; Video started playing and it was already 80% downloaded.

I'm scratching my head.

Thumbs up Works great

I've just installed the app. Works good. And the screen automatically rotating is great.
Good app!

Does the non-N95 version work on the N95?

Reason I ask is that I think it's a bad idea for developers to be adding "auto rotate" to their products when such things should and will be catered for either by RotateMe or hopefully by the firmware itself in the near future (hint to Nokia ).

The poor phone, and probably many users, are going to get well confused with multiple applications fighting to rotate the screen (especially if they don't respect what the others are set to do).

Beer kudos and wish list

what a brilliant application..!! a BIG HURRAY and THANK YOU for the developer!

FYI: i just sent the developer the follwing comments via email, so that you don't have to:

"i have just a few points that you may want to add to the "wish list":
- i dont known if this is prossible, but it would be brilliant if i could check the new videos in my "subscriptions" in youtube. this would need the applicaton to logon with my youtube username/password, which could be set in the "settings"
- OR (if the above is not possible): to be able to add a "user" to the favourites, so that i can check the new videos of my favourite users with one click in the favourites! (or both)
- when saving a video, it would be cool to already put the title of the video as the suggested file name (but still editable, of course)
- although the auto-rotate is/works brilliantly (!!!), it may make sense for certain users/configurations if it could be disabled/enabled in the settings

- when changing the settings, they often are not saved/remembered (especially the "start video" setting always stays at "manual")
- sometimes specific videos wil not start loading at all, or an error message appears (file not supported or so). this might be already on your list."

I'm sorry I tried to like it, the app is polished and well written, but even on a full bar 3.5g signal I'm still getting stuttering, the files are freakin huge and will bust even generous data plans, M.vtap is far better.

Could it be possible to integrate it with the browser even a little bit?!

When there is an embedded flash object (for example YouTube-video) on a web page, it's possible to launch it with "Viewer" application. Flash-content is mapped to FlashLite 2.x -Viewer by default. If I map flash content to be played with emTube (with Y-Tasks filetypes plugin), it downloads swf-file and launches emTube but doesn't load the video...

Is there anything that could be done to get a semi automatic YouTube player?



client, emtube, phones, s60, youtube
