Nokia has a new app designed to help Lumia users post their videos to YouTube. But for now it seems limited to just the new Lumia 1020.

Now available in Microsoft's Windows Phone store, YouTube Upload allows users to select and post their video onto YouTube directly through the Photos app, or trim it with the Nokia Video Trimmer app and then post it. The app is also described as working for "all videos shot on Nokia Lumia phones with Windows Phone 8."

However, tests run by the folks at The Verge found that the app worked only on the new Lumia 1020. Trying it on a Lumia 800, Lumia 900, and a couple of other Lumia phones proved to be a bust. But based on the app's description and its support for WVGA displays, Nokia is likely to extend its support for other Lumia devices equipped with Windows Phone 8.
