Question about 2.1 and htc sense???? sprint admin? YOUTUBE?

can any sprint admin(will, sarah, ken?) or employee please help answer this question.....

I know that sprint has the 2.1 with htc sense ui... and has been testing it for about a month or more...

CAN YOU PLEASE LET US KNOW IF THE YOUTUBE APP IS WORKING ON THE PHONE THAT YOU ARE TESTING WITH....

There should be an answer for this and if there is not that might just mean no one has tried to test it...

I REALLY REALLY HOPE THEY HAVE TESTED THIS!!!

I can't answer to if the app is working.  I know I've been fustrated on the Youtube issue myself.

There are some notes (including from Sprint Admins) in another thread on the forums, including the note that the Hero isn't the only device having this issue.  Other platforms (including the iPhone I believe was mentioned) are having the same problem, so it is likely a Youtube side issue.

Would recommend looking through that thread. They aren't likely to comment, confirm, or deny any part of the 2.1 upgrade until it's public.

What is more frustrating is they have touted features in 2.1 that most sites are saying will be disabled for the Hero (i.e. live wallpapers).

"They" who? Surely not Sprint or even HTC.

Live wallpapers are a drag on resources anyway.  Sure they're neat, but that novelty wears off pretty quickly.

Some of the custom ROM's out for the Hero have live wallpapers working (well, some of the live wallpapers work anyway), and they're just a resource hog, and something that's only cool for a little while.  Then you go back to your regular wallpaper and realize you weren't missing anything by not having live wallpapers

Go to the Android App discussion section wherever it reside on here, and a Sprint admin is touting Live Wallpapers.

And whatever they do to your resources, the point is asking on this forum for what 2.1 includes may not get you anywhere.

That's an admin posting about an API he found in the general Android forum. I don't see anyone "touting" any features for the Hero or Moment.

Read into it what you will, I do not begrudge your opinion.

My opinion (which I like you are free to have) is that if a little research was done into the grewat new feature the admin was pointing out, they would have seen we probably won't be getting it and wouldn't have posted it.  That woould be like them announcing to hero user how great a hardware keyboard is, or to any Android users here how smoothly Moto Blur runs.

I hope this youtube issue is fixed...I do not think it is a problem with HTC or Sprint since I have noticed this problem on several phones that are not on the Sprint network...for example:

HTC Dream (Rogers Wireless; Canada)

Samsung Galaxy (Bell Canada)

Motorolla Milestone (UK)

HTC Eris

So I am starting to think the app itself is the problem...does not seem very compatible with Android at the moment so I am hoping that the 2.1 worldwide releases will fix this

Ohhh ok, I have no idea if the issue will be resolved but I think you should know that Adobe is releasing Flash 10 for Android devices (And many more mobile devices), so we will  be able to watch Youtube videos (And any other flash based video) right from the browser!
