How Do You Get YouTube to Play on a Cell Phone?


YouTube is a web site where users post and share personal videos and view them in MPEG-4 format. Web traffic through YouTube has increased dramatically since its inception in 2005, and the term "going viral" was created for YouTube due to the amount of web traffic a single video may get when promoted through word of mouth, news agencies and sharing via mobile devices like cellular phones. You can share YouTube videos on your cellular phone by browsing from your cell phone or by installing YouTubeGet.

  • Determine whether your cell phone is capable of playing videos by going to your cellular provider's web site and verifying the specifications of your cellular phone. Verify that you have a data plan with unlimited data minutes so that you can avoid additional charges to your cellular phone bill. If your cellular phone is not capable of playing videos, inquire about getting an upgraded cellular phone.

    Open a web browser on your cellular phone and browse to YouTube.Com. YouTube has provided a special mobile version of YouTube that will automatically detect that you are using a cellular phone and will play the videos at a special bit rate more easily manageable by your cellular phone.

    With a direct line to YouTube you will be able to view videos on the go and share your own previously uploaded videos with friends and family.


  • A secondary way to view videos on your cellular phone---especially if your cellular phone does not have web access or an unlimited data plan---is to download videos from YouTube and upload them directly to your cellular phone via data cable. Verify your cellular phone can play videos by checking the specifications on your provider's website. Ensure that your phone has enough memory to store videos; 2GB of storage should be enough to get started.

    From your home computer, browse to YouTubeGet.Com and purchase YouTubeGet for $29.99 by clicking the "Buy Now" button. Install YouTubeGet by double-clicking on the executable file once it is paid for and downloaded. Open the program by double-clicking on the "YouTubeGet" icon on your desktop. With YouTubeGet open, start an Internet browser window and browse to YouTube.Com.

    View any one of your favorite YouTube videos and drag and drop the video link into the YouTubeGet DropZone icon available at the top right corner of your computer screen. An Add New Download window will pop up. Choose a target path where you would like to download the video and then click "Download."

    Use a data cable to connect your cellular phone to your computer and upload the video to your phone. Note that every cellular phone is different so check your cellular phone manual for the best way to transfer video.
