Youtube App Gets Fullscreen Playback

Remember the post about Youtube mobile got smarter?

Now they have made the S60 app smarter too! Well not smarter but now it plays videos in fullscreen!

This is the default main screen. Notice the buttons on the right? It used to be there during playback too.

Search results are presented in filmstrips that can be swiped left or right. Tap on any of the thumbnail and the video will go fullscreen.

See how the controls take over the whole screen overlaying the video but it’s kinda upsetting to see the videos are not optimized for fullscreen playback yet.

Anyhow, just point your mobile browser to m.google.com to get the app
