YouTube goes mobile

The popular video sharing website YouTube will be taking its first steps into the mobile world. During a forum on Internet developments in Taipei last Saturday, Taiwan-born Steve Chen, co-founder of YouTube, said consumers in many parts of the world will be able to access the site on mobile phones by next year.

Commuters on subways or buses are likely to access videos of between 30 to 60 seconds each, while people traveling on longer train journeys would probably go for files of up to 10 minutes in length, he said.
As Internet technologies develop further, Web sites should provide richer content and greater mobility so users can have access to them anywhere, Chen said.
