How To Play YouTube Videos on BlackBerry Curve

BlackBerry Curve series is an awesome phone from RIM but it doesn’t support YouTube videos. Even if you are on Wi-Fi, you will not be able to watch YouTube videos on your BlackBerry. One of my friend is having BlackBerry Curve 8520 and was trying to watch YouTube videos since a long time but no success. There are few apps in BlackBerry app world which claims that you can watch YouTube videos on your phone by using them but they didn’t work too. But finally I used Bolt browser on BlackBerry and now I am able to watch YouTube videos on Wi-Fi as well as on phone network.

Bolt is an awesome browser which supports JavaScripts in a proper way. You can visit sites in same way as your desktop. If you will try to open video page on YouTube or any embedded YouTube video on other site, you will see a player appearing on the browser. First of all Bolt will complete the auto video settings on your phone by playing a demo video and then you can go ahead and watch the YouTube video on your phone.

Go ahead and install Bolt browser on your BlackBerry. Bolt is available for free on BlackBerry App world.

    Doesn’t do what it says on the tin… very slow… accesses YouTube website… posts up a player… but will not play the videos… pretty pointless really… waste of time downloading it… now having to spend more time uninstalling it…
