YouTube launches new mobile site

The online video giant has revamped its site for mobile browsers.

YouTube has overhauled its mobile site to give customers better video capabilities on the move.

The Google-owned site has been enhanced for those using HTML5 on their mobile browsers, providing faster loading times.

The look and feel has been updated, with a new UI for the iPad has also been introduced.

Along with these deeper features, added extras such as the ability to make video playlists, add videos to your favourites or like/unlike videos have been incorporated into the new site.

There are also built-in sharing features to link out videos to Facebook, Twitter and Google Buzz.

Announcing the services, Google said: "YouTube launched on mobile devices in 2007 with about 1,000 videos available on the mobile site. While this suddenly opened up the possibility to access videos on the go, our site, mobile browsers and the hardware had limitations that prevented the mobile experience from keeping up with YouTube on the desktop."

"Today, more than ever, YouTube knows that you want to be able to find and access your favorite videos wherever you are. That's why YouTube's rolling out an updated version of the mobile site."

The new site can be accessed by visiting m.youtube.com.
