Hi,

Here it is, the Youtube Panel!
If you want to use it, first you have to install Youtube of zenkinz:

If anybody has done his/her research in this area, please share as well.

Otherwise, I will test out further before sharing the fix.

Update 11/12/2008:
Minor update to the CAB, CAB no longer hard code to \Windows directory, but I have not tried if it works on storage card.

The cab file can be found here

Update 26/11/2008:
I have created a patch CAB to restore the 8 system files that were overwritten by the original Youtube CAB. This is probably the last resort before having to hard reset to get Youtube working (if you had previously installed Youtube before)

Update 18/11/2008:
I have created a patch CAB, if you do not wish to hard-reset your Xperia to install the X1i-Youtube.cab. But let me know if it works for you, because while this patch CAB does correct the problematic registry entries, it does not correct the 8 system files that the original youtube CAB has overwritten.

Update 17/11/2008:
Build a CAB that works fine after I hard reset my phone (after umpteen times of hard reset!)

And now you install the YouTube.cab!
At least you can choose the Youtube Panel normally in the Panel display.

Nice work.. But I'm having trouble getting to work. Can you specify exactly which files to install and in what order.

The panel loads, it says "opening" at the bottom for a few seconds and then the desktop goes all white. The taskbar and bottom bar are still visible so it's not a system hang or anything. I just think I may have missed to install something.

You have to install first the Youtube file of zenkinz!
You have to instal it on the device not on the storage card.
And you have to change the youtube.409.mui to your countrycode (for example germany = youtube.407.mui).
You find this file in the windows directory!
Then you install the panel and it is running for me!

I hope it works for you, too!

at 0:45 there's a youtube panel.

Not sure if that proves a youtube panel is in the making though.. Could be just for illustration purposes.

There will almost certainly be an official Youtube Panel soon. Youtube is owned by Google, who own a rival OS, but this hasn't stopped them making apps for other mobile OSs.

Question:

I have the youtube program installed and works great. What does the other youtube.CAB do? just turn it into a panel?

or does it add something worthy by turning it into a panel?

Just asking cuz i dont need to turn it into a panel if the app works just fine.

Thanks btw.
