Default Youtube on PS3 - easier

Quote:
Saw this at NeoGaf and thought y'all should know.

Coming Up Next... YouTube on Your TV

Have you ever wanted to just sit on your couch and watch YouTube on your TV? Well, now that's possible via YouTube for Television, initially available through the Sony PS3 and Nintendo Wii game consoles at www.youtube.com/tv. Currently in beta, the TV Website offers a dynamic, lean-back, 10-foot television viewing experience through a streamlined interface that enables you to discover, watch and share YouTube videos on any TV screen with just a few quick clicks of your remote control. With enlarged text and simplified navigation, it makes watching YouTube on your TV as easy and intuitive as possible. Optional auto-play capability enables users to view related videos sequentially, emulating a traditional television experience. The TV Website is available internationally across 22 geographies and in over 12 languages.

As previously blogged, YouTube has partnered directly with major TV and set-top box manufacturers to bring YouTube into the living room. Still, very few such devices today contain a Web browser or provide access to YouTube. Our hope is that this site may help to accelerate an industry evolution towards open television access to Web video. Over time, we plan to add support for additional TV devices that provide Web browsers.

So grab some popcorn, gather your friends and sit back and enjoy the YouTube TV Website.
So - I know you can expand the youtube video to full screen, but this actually uses the full screen for navigation too.. worth checking out.

Porn on youtube.. uh huh.. well I'm glad you enjoy watching William Hung, but I don't think that does classify as porn -even though it has the same effect on you.

Nope. The Playstation 3 supports Flash. It makes the "viewing" of said pr0n possible.

Seriously...try it.

I've used youtube on my PS3 before with little to no problems. If it's even better now that'll be nice!

I tried it out earlier on and it works very well. According to Sonys blog this current system is very much a Beta they are working with YouTube to integrate it even better with the PS3.
