    Hi all,

    I installed youtube app from the market and can't see option to upload to youtube?

    I remember seeing button right when you open app next to search button. See screenshot.

    You need to have MediaUploader.apk in /system/app/ for those uploading functions in YouTube and Picasa (Gallery 3D).

    You can extract this file from any AOSP ROM like CyanogenMod and push it to /system/app/ using ADB, then set permissions to 644 (rw-r--r--).

    I've always injected this file into every MIUI ROM I flash for the passed 3+ months now; no idea why it isn't included from the get-go.

    Thanks for detailed explanation but i'm having hard time finding MediaUploader.apk in CM7 nightlys. I opened couple of them and in /system/app/ there's no MediaUploader.apk?

    First I was going to ask why you both tried to extract it from a ROM based on 2.3 since MIUI is still based on 2.2, but even CM v6.1.2 which is the lastest stable D1 release based on 2.2 didn't include it, which is wierd. I could have sworn having extracted mine from a CM ROM, but I guess I was mistaken.

    I uploaded the file to multiupload.com for anyone here that needs it, I'm not sure how long it would stay up since I don't have any premium memberships to any of those sites, but I'm guessing it will be up there long enough for anyone on this forum that's interested in it to download.

    adb push MediaUploader.apk /system/app/
    adb shell chmod 644 /system/app/MediaUploader.apk

    If YouTube still doesn't display the upload icon, you might need to reboot your phone.
     
  8. Would rootexplorer work ?

    Thanks again for your help + upload!
    I'm sorry I didn't even think about version......
    I tried using adb but it continued to give adb: not found
    So, I found this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/team-d1-miui/101356-quick-question-youtube-picasa-uploads.html
    Using Root explorer I've moved MediaUploader.apk to /system/app/ and set permissions as suggested:
    x's = checks

    x x o
    x o o
    x o o

    Rebooted phone and voila. Now while in youtube app pressing menu shows upload option.
    Hope it helps someone!

    Not a problem, happy to help.

    Funny, that's me helping in that thread. I've since been banned for disrespecting another user. Apparently, the other user found my reply to them to be disrespecting when in reality they just had poor comprehension of the English language.

    I read the whole thread and couldn't find anywhere that you insulted anyone. After 1,012 posts you get banned. Very sad.
