Hiya,

due to my brother not having the luck of having Froyo on his phone I took a look at it and hacked the newst YouTube app to work with Eclair. I had to remove two calls and add android.util.base64 which was introduced with Froyo. However, it should work flawlessly. If you encounter any problems, feel free to post here along with a little description and if possible a logcat dump of the exception.

Old Download:

You have to remove the default YouTube app before you can install this one over.

Using ADB Shell this should just work:
adb remount
adb shell rm system/app/YouTube.apk
adb uninstall com.google.android.youtube

then you can just install it over using the package manager or with adb (adb install YouTube_signed.apk).

Hope this helps, enjoy the re-designed Youtube app!

I know what a mod and a port means ..
Just that OP's post is confusing, he is trying to help his brother who doesn't have Froyo, hence I assumed he is trying to port the latest version (which I thought Foryo's youtube app) to eclair.

EDIT : Just realized that the new Youtube app on the market is claimed by some sites as a Gingerbread youtube app. (and its only available for 2.2) .. ok now it makes sense.

Works fine, thank you.
After you sign in to see your uploads, after exiting the app it doesn't run any more (force close).
