Beam links/youtube videos to any device from your windows phone.
NOW WITH A FREE VERSION
Check out the new app BeamLink. It allows you to beam links(youtube videos, blog posts, pdfs, ebooks etc.) from your Windows Phone to any device with a browser. That's right, IPADS, ANDROID TABLETS, WINDOWS TABLETS/DESKTOPS/NOTEBOOKS, SmartTvs, PS3, XBOX360, Mobile Phone and just about any device with a browser. The best part is that Absolutely no set up required. Just point your target device's browser to 'beamlink.in'.
Description from the Store:
THE COOLEST AND QUICKEST WAY TO BEAM LINKS TO YOUR OTHER DEVICES
Are you always watching videos and reading webpages/blogs etc. on your Windows Mobile?
Do you often wish that you could read/watch your links on devices with bigger screens like tablets/desktops/laptops or smart TVs?
But, you don't want to go through the effort of finding that specific webpage/video again?
Well, BeamLink to the rescue!!
All you have to do is open 'BEAMLINK.IN' on a browser and you can 'send' all kinds of links including videos from youtube etc. to it.
NO SETUP REQUIRED! NO ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE REQUIRED!
All you have to do is download the app to your Windows Phone.
1) Copy the link you want to beam from your Windows Phone.
2) Open the BeamLink app and use the paste option.
3) Open beamlink.in on the target device's browser and scan the code.
Note: You can even type a URL to beam. A history of shared URL's is maintained for easy resharing.

The next option is to share it on like fb or somethin.. Again these will involve logging in and stuff.. Note typing in an Xbox browser or a ps3 browser is not a pleasant experience.
With this app you just have to goto beamlink.in from any device.. No log in .. No set up nothin.. Copy and paste the link in the app, the scanner pops up, scan the code on beamlink.in and the link is shared instantly.. If you share a YouTube video then the format is automatically converted.. As in from the mobile link to a desktop link. So if you share it to an iPad or an android device.. The default YouTube app instantly opens up. Try using it.

First. When you run app and read how to use it, sometimes its hard to understand what exactly you should do. At this moment I am talking as user not developer (I am developing software for WP too). Users of smartphones hate to think a lot about how to use app. They need clear and simply instruction. So you should better consider about it.
And two times it crashed when I pasted link from IE to it. Cant remember what is was.
Overall idea is good and you even can add webbrowser into it and beam links directly from it.

I have migrated to a better server to handle the increased users. QR CODE ERROR will occur for a few hours. I'm working on getting it up and running. Sorry for the delay.
****** NOW WORKING ******
