One way to create YouTube 'QuickLists' on the iPhone iOS devices
I like to chill and view a number of Youtube videos at the end of the day using my iPhone. Until Apple releases iPhone OS 3.0 and updates the YouTube app to let you log in to your account, you can't use QuickLists to mark videos on your Mac for later viewing on the iPhone. So I created a simple workaround.

I have a Mobile Me account which updates my bookmarks regularly. So I created a bookmark folder on my bookmarks bar on my Mac, and simply drag in the YouTube video URLs of those clips I want to watch later.

Later, on my iPhone, I simply open the Safari app and open the updated folder. Rough and ready, but it does the job until the Youtube app gets updated. Happy to hear if others have better solutions to this problem...

I like emailing myself links to open up on the iPhone for later viewing. This also applies to non YouTube sites.

You can do this from the web browser via a Send Link menu item or an email url bookmarklet, depending on the mail client you use.

I use a Gmail bookmarklet to email myself the link of the page I am on to myself. You can also use YouTubes share option.

Once in you inbox you can either filter to a YouTube label/folder to organize your MobileMail.app.

This setup also work on the iPhone by quickly looking at a few videos and emailing them to yourself with the built in email button in the YouTube app. Then, when you actually have time to read them, they are all there for you to click on.

I use email over bookmarks as well.. using this method also allows you to add notes (to the email) regarding link.
