YouTube gets in on the iPhone hype

Apple announced an agreement to wirelessly stream video clips from Google-owned user-generated content site YouTube via the computing giant's forthcoming iPhone device, arriving at retail stores on June 29. According to Apple, more than 10,000 videos will be available at iPhone launch, with YouTube on target to make its full catalog of videos available by fall 2007. In addition to the new Apple-designed application that will stream YouTube content over WiFi or EDGE networks, YouTube announced it has begun encoding video content in the advanced H.264 format, which promises improved image quality and extended battery life on mobile devices.

"iPhone delivers the best YouTube mobile experience by far," said Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a prepared statement. "Now users can enjoy YouTube wherever they are."
