Sony has announced the availability of a YouTube application for the PS3 which you can now download for free from XMB. Just look for the app under the TV/Video Services section.
The new YouTube app features a refined search tool and the ability to take control using a smartphone or tablet. However, you won’t be able to upload videos from the PS3.
Search: Finding videos is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.
Access to subscriptions: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes official music videos.
Your smartphone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube on PS3 with a smartphone. Find a video on your phone and with the click of a button it’ll play on the big screen. While the video is playing you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one.
