Re: Youtube videos won't play

I tried your URL on my Playbook with OS2.1.0.1526 and a  good Wi-Fi connection and it played OK afterall. The end of the video showed the couple walking towards some  water fountains....


However, I had to wait for about 2 minutes before it would start after the Kijiji ad was over. I  toggled the stop/start button a few times till the preload bar advanced about an inch and  then the video played without a hitch. Once it was completely loaded the replay worked right away.


Maybe, hitting the start/stop button a few times will also work for you  too ? Good luck to watch Simbu singing so fabulous.

Use Origami browser with ad block on, and the song starts straight away without the advert video first.
