YouTube H.264 windfall to benefit S60 smartphones?

Published by at

It's interesting watching some of the side deals being done around the iPhone. Apparently YouTube are going to make all their video catalog available in higher quality H.264 format. Ostensibly for iPhone compatibility, but note that all S60 3rd Edition FP1 devices and many older Nseries devices (e.g. N73, N93, N80, etc.) have H.264 video compatibility. Hopefully YouTube pages will soon come with a hook or link for smartphones to follow and play?
