Hayden just updated us on the status of vTap, the video search and video player for mobile. It’s now optimized for BlackBerry OS 4.3, which included streaming video support, and stretches back to the 8700. The search is pretty cool, working a lot like Boopsie in that it offers results as you type. On top of YouTube searching, they’ve also got a Wikipedia search with the same instant-return feature. The usual disclaimer follows that you probably shouldn’t be trying this out unless you’ve got an unlimited data plan, or really deep pockets. While it doesn’t look like the video search is ready just yet (just Wikipedia), we’re sure it will soon be accessible at http://m.vtap.com from your mobile browser.

S4BB has announced an updated version of their Web Video Generator today, including support for the BlackBerry 8130, BlackBerry 8310, and BlackBerry 8820. In a nutshell, the Web Video Generator lets you grab YouTube videos and convert them for playing on your BlackBerry. If you YouTube at all, you’ll know that at any given moment, there are at least one or two clips that are stuck in your head – lucky for those folks, the Web Video Generator is available right over here.
