I recently downloaded the YouTube app for my PlayStation 3. Last night I decided to play with the app and see what it could do. There is a setting in the PS3 YouTube app to pair with a mobile device, so I decided to try and pair my TouchPad running webOS. I opened up m.youtube.com/pair, entered the pairing code from the PS3, and it worked! I was able to use my TouchPad to search for and play/pause a video on YouTube on my PS3. I was also able to do the same with the YouTube app on my Vizio set top box.
In order to make this work on a webOS 3.0.5 you need to install the User Agent Override -Chrome patch from Preware or webOS Quick Install, restart Luna, open up the web browser, login to your YouTube account, then go to http://m.youtube.com/pair, go to the pairing menu in the YouTube app on your PS3 or Vizio and get a pairing code, enter the code on your TouchPad and enjoy controlling YouTube!
Please note that you need the Chrome patch and you need to go to the mobile YouTube site for this to work.
