Internet Explorer in Windows 10 Mobile Technical Preview supports YouTube Live Streaming

Hell will likely freeze over before Google makes a YouTube app for Windows Phone, but it seems there is another route to getting the best from YouTube.

Microsoft has been making an effort to make Internet Explorer more compatible with Webkit’s de facto standards, and in the latest iteration as found in IE on Windows 10 Mobile technical preview it seems it works well enough to support YouTube Live Streaming, something not available on Windows Phone 8.1, as can be seen in the screen shot above.

Microsoft continues to be reluctant to adopt Webkit, but if the IE team (or Project Spartan) team are diligent enough at working to maintain compatibility  I don’t think we can complain.
