    A fine example of Google's commitment to the 'open web'.

    Yeah, way to address concerns about privacy and such.... We'll block their platform from accessing our dominating service.

    Wow, I am so glad they opened my eyes to Microsoft's hypocrisy... Oh wait. No they didn't..

    Well the Windows Phone market share is growing and maybe Google are getting a bit uncomfortable with that fact. Just checked the YouTube app on my Lumia 620 anyway and I can confirm it's not working.

    Re: News - Google and Microsoft makeup and breakup over YouTube app

    all of them are hypocrites and crawling to your wallets where the money is. so dont think google is better than M$, both are worse than each other.

    there are hundreds of applications and softwares that block YT ads and allow Vids download, why google didnt block any of these?!

    HTML5 my a$$, Google themselves didnt develop their app on HTML5.

    No, not even that. I've been wondering how they expect to make any money from it.

    Maybe I'm watching the wrong videos....?

    I get adverts usually 1 in every 3 videos I watch. Don't really bother me, some are actually quite good.

    I'd say I get ads in say 1 in 10, but then again sometimes I get 3 in a row!
