Lordy knows what exactly has been updated with YouTube's dedicated video client, but it jumped from v2.0.2 to v2.0.9 sometime...recently.
One obvious and welcome change is program compatibility – finally – with 320x320 devices (before it would rotate and crash on Treos), so that's pretty cool. We also imagine they've improved their streaming codecs and optimized the app a little.
So if you had some problems back when it debuted, you may want to take another chance: https://www.youtube.com/?app=desktop

This is very very good news indeed. Thanks for the update!
Malatesta - I tried updating to version 2.0.9 from 2.0.2 and now it won't run smoothly on my Verizon SMT5800. Any ideas where I can find a cab of 2.0.2 now that I overwrote the one on my device and YouTube site only offers 2.0.9? UGH, thanks!
