Yes it plays. Wondering a full length movie does not.

Re: WATCHING MOVIES ON YOUTUBE

Are you able to play these on your PB?

If so can you provide us with a youtube link that isn't working for you? that will help narrow this issue down.

Re: WATCHING MOVIES ON YOUTUBE

The links you provided, I can play with no problem. I rented the movie Brave from Disney.

But I can play the movie on my laptop. 

 

Thanks for your help! 

Chris

Re: WATCHING MOVIES ON YOUTUBE

Well at least I know that I am not the only one having the problem with that link. But like I said before I can play the movie on my laptop. 

 

Thanks, 

Chris

Re: WATCHING MOVIES ON YOUTUBE

I found some info:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/chromebook-central/bXL9p7D8nCw/_61rWjnGFwYJ
http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1033257

 

All I can suggest is that you contact playbook support to report this or check with youtube / rental company for a refund or workaround.  Others (chrome users) have reported the same thing.
