Sony PSP and youtube

Does anyone know if i can download a piece of software or something that will allow my son to watch youtube videos. He can navigate easily enough to the youtube website on the PSP, but can't watch any videos, the same goes for videos or broadcasts on the BBC site.

It's probably not possible to do this, but are there any kindly souls out there that could confirm this or come up with any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your answer, but i can transfer youtube files to the PSP, however my son wants to watch youtube videos on the PSP by logging into the youtube website on his PSP.

Oh,i see.
You need flash player 8 or 9 to stream you tube vids.Psp only has flash 6 installed,so i don't think it is possible.
Not sure if you can upgrade flash on the psp though.

But be carefull when doing it and make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.

It may also help with the youtube problem.

Cheers wolfie, the update has installed version 4.05 (updated from 4.01), unfortunately it doesn't include an update for the flash player, so still no luck with the youtube issue.

Oh well just have to wait for Sony to release version 7 or 8 for their flash player.
