cuteTube broken but will be updated soon

I'm sure any Symbian enthusiasts have noticed this already, but cuteTube, the premier YouTube client for the platform, is currently broken because YouTube changed its APIs a few days ago (or at least stopped supporting the much-used API 2.0). However, Stuart Howarth, the developer promises an update in the statement below.

Stuart writes:

As you may be aware, Google are closing version 2 of the YouTube API. As a result, some YouTube features in cuteTube will no longer work. I am currently in the process of re-writing cuteTube to use the QYouTubeQDailymotion and QVimeo shared libraries that I wrote recently. I am hoping this work will be finished within the next couple of weeks. The new client application will have some feature changes, including the ability to extend the list of supported services via plugins.

So it looks like you'll have to do without your YouTube fix for a few weeks, at least!
