If you have access to a US PSN account, download the Youtube app from the US PS Store (it's free) - the video quality is much better than viewing Youtube through the PS3's internet browser.

It's very easy to make a US PSN account, you just need to put a valid US address in when registering and use a different email. I live in some hotel in New York city, apparently.

It's worth it just to get access to the US PSN Store, although you have to use top-up codes, which can easily be bought from eBay.

Does the The White House have a valid address. I'm might find out if I can set up an account using The White House. I might have to make my name President_Sn1pEZzZzZzZ

I had an US PSN account until the PSN network went down and I've never bothered to do whatever it was we had to do to update our accounts again. I suspect it'll want the email address that I can't remember.

I got the youtube app the other day, also if your smart phone is capable you can browse vids on your phone and watch them back on your tv, really clever if you ask me

The YouTube app for PS3 is excellent, especially if the videos you're watching are 720p. The clarity is top-notch. Sadly I can't sync my account to my PS3 (even though the PS3 account I used to download the app is a U.S. one). I think because my YouTube account with all my subs, etc., is a UK account. Nevertheless I just search what I want and then watch.

DaveOz, my youtube account is UK & I use the youtube app on a UK PS3 user (after downloading it from the US user) and everything works ok. My subs are there etc..

@ Andy - Yep, I literally got mine working in the past 30 mins or so. I logged in with my YT UK account on my UK PS3 account and everything works great. I'd turn off my Ps3 and go downstairs to check my console when I should've left my PS3 on and allowed the registration process on the YouTube site do its thing. Anyway it's all working great now. YouTube on a console is very convenient.
