    Starting later today, the YouTube application will be available as a free download via the PS Vita Store on PSN.

    Key features of the new app include:

    -Recommended Videos: Displays videos recommended from YouTube
    -Search: Search for videos by typing a keyword
    -Viewing History : Displays the most recent videos you’ve viewed
    -Add to Favorites: Displays a list of videos you’ve added to your Favorites list. You must be signed into your account to add a video to your Favorites.

    YouTube Videos will be viewable in two modes – full screen and small screen. In Full Screen mode, a control panel will be displayed on the screen, which will allow you to easily expand or minimize videos. Additionally, an HD button will appear when playing high definition (up to 720p) videos. Simply tap on the HD button to switch from HD to SD.

    I woke up this morning thinking "Are Sony ever gonna release that app?"

    I'll check it out now, hopefully it's rather full fledged.

    Thanks for the news, as always.

    So why didn't this ever happen for the PSP?

    Great news regardless, though.

    Wow, on those screenshots it looks really good, with comments and related videos etc. (as opposed to the really inconvenient itouch version).

    Looks nice and is a good fit for the system although looking at the bottom image, the layout leaves much to be desired.

    Same here so I guess nothing for the US yet. I'll make a front page post linking to this when it's online over here so I don't have US users screaming at me (or you).

    Finally, it looks good though and hopefully it pleases the customers now. Should have been here from day one IMHO but better late than never

    Seems really solid. Other apps I've tried on other devices usually have some limits on them but this seems rather fully fledged.

    Tried this for length limitations:



    Tried this for music blocking:



    Tried this for age restriction (I signed in to my Youtube account)



    All work.

    Ashens plays perfectly. I consider this a success.

    So for the people who have the app, is it better than current devices with Youtube mobile?

    In short, yes. It's a hell of a lot better than the Android version on both my tablet AND my phone. I'm not sure about iOS though.

    Edit: The only thing I would like is the ability to upload videos straight from the vita.

    Go to the PSN Store on the Vita, go to "New Releases". Alternatively you can also find it in the "Apps" section.
