FierceMobileContent is reporting that a new Official Google Blog post, credited to YouTube CEO and co-founder Chad Hurley, implies that the site is gearing up for another attempt at mobile video.

“Our goal is to allow every person on the planet to participate by making the upload process as simple as placing a phone call,” Hurley writes. “This new video content will be available on any screen–in your living room, or on your device in your pocket. YouTube and other sites will bring together all the diverse media which matters to you, from videos of family and friends to news, music, sports, cooking and much, much more.”

He also wrote that the tools necessary for video recording “will continue to become smaller and more affordable. Personal media devices will be universal and interconnected.” That’s what we’ve been saying for ages; here’s hoping that the big studios don’t kill it first.
