I was fighting tons of bad video rendering and have discovered that so called "HQ Youtube" app for EVO works just fine for Droid. Tried it on my NC, works like a charm (preA2.2, pre Flash 10.1, of course). I can watch HD YouTube trailers just fine, smooth, and fluid now. This is the power of hardware overlay switched ON. I'm sure, a simple hack of Flash Player 10.1 spoofing an Android 2.2 response for it will work just fine too.

Looking for the best streaming TV (IP TV) player as all these yxPlayers are pure junk, both free and paid versions.

I too am using the Evo HQ Youtube apk. I know there was a work around to fix Youtube from failing but I uninstalled it so had to search for an apk and found the one for 2.1 evo. Works like a charm.

I didn't read all of your blog, kinda skimmed it over, but I'm using "Button Savior" instead of "Soft Keys", It works much better.

And goto landscape mode when setting your wallpapers.

There's no such requirement to read my whole blog if one chooses to use just one trick (and not to use DD-WRT router with NC, lol).

Yeah, the development goes fast and in all those diverse direction, so it took me awhile: it's easy to overlook some achievements for HTC EVO when one looks closely in Droid Forums, heh. But I have found it eventually. I guess the Auto-Nooter script should be upgraded (plus Button Savior, minus SoftKeys.)

I used to go nuts (and not "landscape") when choosing my wallpaper: there's way too many resource hogs in NC at this stage. All B&N stuff must go (maybe LendMe, and whatever in-shop app could be added -- later). Didn't do much on this path yet -- before a stable recovery. So I ended up with simplest, unmoving snap of my painting, plus MIUI's clock+weather.

Seriously, if you look up for a better YouTube.apk, there's a lot of life outside Google Market.
But if you look for "increase volume for Droid X" you will find nothing yet.

Darkman, should I install the eclair version right over the current version i have? or uninstall current version before installing eclair version?

Does that one handle the HD trailers just as well as the older Evo "HQ" version? If so, I may just have to uninstall yet again! lol...

[EDIT: That "ported gingerbread version" appears to be the same as the one installed as default by autonooter v.25, and the videos do not appear to work in HD... am I missing something?]

OP> Thanks for the link in your blog... it worked like a charm after side-loading using adb!

Would you mind uploading that apk here? I don't have an account on that Android forum

OK, I installed the older EVO "HQ version", and it worked the first time I ran it. But now, it seems that my nook keeps reverting back to the (albeit newer) version included with autonooter (Youtube v2.0.26, or something). This appears to be the same "ginerbread ported" version that Darkman mentioned and linked to, but nothing I do now will allow me to revert back to the "HQ version" that aludal pointed us to...

Why does mine keep reverting back to the newer version every time I reboot, even after I "wipe data" and "uninstall" it with Titanium? Any ideas?
