We're not ready to put on our conspiracy hats just yet, but HTC YouTube app is missing again from the Marketplace.
We should point out that their apps often go "missing" (in quotes) from the HTC app section, only to be found if you can dig up an old link or you hit the "More from HTC" area in the app description. That's not going on here though as when you do hit the link to the Marketplace, you get the old "This application is not available for your device. Press here for more info". [Note: You have to hit that link on your HTC phone for it to ever work--it'll never show up in the web Marketplace or Zune Desktop]
This could be because of several reasons: HTC is updating the app and this one was "pulled" temporarily--odd but yeah, HTC does that sometimes, temporary glitch in the Marketplace, etc. It's probably not because of YouTube demanding HTC pull the app or because whatever reason LazyTube/MetroTube cited for ceasing development. In fact, the "official" YouTube app from Microsoft (love it or hate it) is still available.
Our advice? Wait a few days and check back as we bet a version 2.3 will be in its place or perhaps HTC will fix whatever it is that is causing the issue. If not, when we hang out with them next week in Barcelona, we'll ask 'em directly. Cool? In the meantime, we're sure most of you will note how much better YouTube Pro is anyways, so there's your alternative in the meantime, should you need some YouTube on the go.
Thanks, Jean-Batiste, for the heads up
