Windows CE is a minimal operating system designed by Microsoft for personal digital assistant (PDA), mobile phone and netbook devices. By default, Windows CE does not contain flash support required to play YouTube videos and other online multimedia. If you want to watch YouTube videos in your Windows CE operating system, install a certain edition of Core Pocket Media Player—the only media player of its kind that fully allows YouTube to play natively.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download TCPMP on your Windows CE browser (see link in Resources section).

  2. 2

    Double-click the file once the download has finished to begin installing the media player to your Windows CE device. If prompted for an installation directory, click "Main Memory."

  3. 3

    Download FlashVideoBundle (see link in Resources section), then double-click the file to install it. Choose the same location to install this file.

  4. 4

    Turn your Windows CE device on and off. Click "Start," then "Programs." Click "Video Sites" to load up a list of compatible video sites (including YouTube). Click "TCPMP" to load the settings for your player. Change any of the settings to your personal preference, then click "OK."

  5. 5

    Watch YouTube videos on your Windows CE device as you normally would on a full Windows operating system.
