New PS3 YouTube app launches

Postby karkify » 11 Feb 2013, 17:54

Been using this for a while, since I downloaded it from the American store, which coincidentally seems the best thing to do these days.

Unless PS+ is what your after and then your far better going for it on a Euro account as the European PS+ is way ahead of the US version.

I just tried it and I'm enjoying it, though I think they're missing a trick with the lack of connectivity to the Vita YouTube app.

Perhaps they can now try to fix Play TV which has been on the fritz since August!

Use http://www.ps3youtube.com/ instead.

You get to view 1080p vids and you can download em to your PS3 HDD.

I'm pretty sure Sony have abandoned the Playtv, cause it's been several years since they said they were going to release an update for it where you could view the HD channels. Still nothing.

Still no HD, poor service. You get about 240p on PS3. And it crashes and freezes.

Been using this app for months now and its brilliant, especially using your phone to add the videos.

A software update to allow HD channels in the UK would be impossible. The hardware in the PlayTV unit is DVB-T and the HD channels on our DTT system use DVB-T2 so the only way they could update PlayTV with HD capabilities is with new hardware.

Me too, been using the app for months - it works great - love the way it runs all the HD content without issue. There is no real reason why they couldn't have released this across the world from launch.

The only problem is having to pair your phone each time - unless I'm being as thick as a member of One Direction.

You should only have to pair your phone one time, and it stays paired until you unpair it, just like all other BT devices. WTF, took so long SCEE?

The old one wasn't great so good news. I'm guessing its similar to the one on the bravia.

It's brilliant. I've paired my tablet and can listen to the music from youtube while typing this and selecting clips from my tablet. All sound and picture on tv and hi fi.
