As you know since YouTube made available http://m.youtube.com , not all the WM devices can take advantage of this new mobile streaming service as we mentioned HERE!

The good friends at XDA Developer forum have managed to extract the HTC Streaming Media Player for Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6.0 based Pocket PC and Smartphone devices.

The HTC Streaming player supports RTSP streaming protocol. HTCs Streaming Media Player is a free application pre-installed on the latest Windows Mobile 6 HTC devices that allows you to watch streaming RSTP/3GP audio/video media.

You can download HTC Streaming Media Player HERE!. The CAB file also contains registry keys for 3GP MIME type so that when you click a streaming video link in your mobile browser, the HTC streaming media player is launched.

[Update: The DLL file pack is no longer available for download - If anybody can find the new link - Please let us know! - READ comment # 29 ]

If you get an some error about components not found or missing, you might require this DLL file pack that contains the following system files required by the player:

  • AYGSHELL.dll
  • COREDLL.dll
  • ImageDLL.dll
  • ole32.dll
  • OLEAUT32.dll VerInfou.dll
  • WININET.dll WS2.dll

These files need to be placed under the \Windows directory of your mobile device. If you get a warning about replacing existing files, DO NOT proceed.
