Getting the HTC YouTube on the OEM Tilt 2 ROM to work perfectly

The Tilt 2 OEM ROM includes a pretty cool YouTube app located in the Windows directory. However, sometimes it would work, and sometimes it would time out on attempting to connect to play the movie.


Here's what I learned while getting the HTC YouTube application included in the OEM AT&T ROM to work perfectly.


The value in the registry needs to be modified:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\YouTube
ProxyName = wireless.cingular.com:80 (default value) needs to be replaced with [BLANK].


This value is intermittently restored, so it is nececssary to change a few others to prevent that.


The value at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SUN\JVM\PRELOADAPP
proxy = wireless.cingular.com:80 (default value) needs to be replaced with [BLANK].


The value at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\ConnMgr\Providers\{EF097F4C-DC4B-4c98-8FF6-AEF805DC0E8E}\HTTP-{436EF144-B4FB-4863-A041-8F905A62C572}
Proxy = wireless.cingular.com:80 (default value) needs to be replaced with [BLANK].


The value at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Apps\Esmertec Java\Properties
com.sun.midp.io.http.proxy = wireless.cingular.com:80 (default value) needs to be replaced with [BLANK].


Changing these three values will prevent the YouTube proxy from being restored. (However, this will prevent the Opera Browser from connecting when the phone is connected via Wi-Fi. In order to fix this, the value at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Opera\Defaults
ByPassProxyForNonGPRS = 1 (default value) needs to be changed to 0.)



EDIT: The greyed out text above in my original post is mostly likely unrelated to the YouTube Proxy issue. For some reason, my Opera browser seems to have trouble connecting over WiFi when the "Data Connection" is turned on in the CommManager.


These changes have been in place on my phone now for about a week now and have survived several resets, power cycles, and tower changes.


Good luck and enjoy the included YouTube app without a hitch!

Thank you very much!

I'm running the new HTC stock ROM 1.86.707.4 and the YouTube app worked only once out of about every hundred attempts. It was very frustrating.

I just made these changes and the last three videos I loaded worked perfectly in high quality.

Good work!

I have no idea what magical hoodoo I did, but the Youtube app has worked every time without any edits.

All I did was copy the shortcut into the Program list, and in the settings select "High Quality" instead of auto.

That's it.

You're welcome, Monkey. It was frustrating the hell out of me, too.

Inquisitor, mine started that way also. Then for no apparent reason it just flaked out. Keep this thread handy in case you run into issues.

Cheers,

can explain that like i was your 9 year old brother thanks.

Your 9 year old brother would have made the changes by now. You need it explained as if you're your 65 year old dad!

The changes require editing the registry on your phone. There are many free utilities for doing this. If you need further assistance, find the nearest 9 year old and he'll do it in mere minutes.

Thanks for the tip. In NGR's dec 4 28008 rom the JVM and Java entries did not exist. I only had to blank out the two proxy settings, and everything worked fine.

Thanks again!

I used the cab in NRG's rom thread and mine works a ton better. The cab even fixed the kaisers youtube problems. Is this essentially the same?

which 2 proxy`s you have change in the energy rom ?

I just followed the list posting by the OP. If the registry entry existed, I changed it as per his instructions. If it didn't exist I didn't worry about it!;)

IIRC, I only had to change two settings... both had the att proxy "proxy = wireless.cingular.com:80" and I just deleted it.
