Indeed. Software playing will probably take a bit more power, sure, but
that aside, the Neo's youtube capabilities already partially exceed
(*sigh* at the obligatory comparison) the iPhone's. (At least from what
I've heard the latter has access to a limited subset of videos
transcoded to H.264 spesifically for Apple.) There are some scaling and
rotation issues (what with them requiring CPU power), but those can
presumably be hw-assisted on the GTA-02 GPU anyway.
'course, a simple GUI for youtube playing will be required (prior to
gnash being workable on the Neo, and perhaps preferrable phone-UI-wise
afterwards too). Using youtube-dl and mplayer, shouldn't be a big
project. Not that interested in youtube myself, though.
