Hey azndragonlord,

 

Have you tried going to m.youtube.com from your browser while on 3g?

Re: Cannot play youtube video on 3g

that's the address it automatically goes to. i've been seaching online everywhere trying to find a solution and i finally decided to figure it out myself and found it... because my phone is a grey market phone i had to adjust the apn settings. can't believe i couldn't find this solution online..

Ok so what's the APN settings? My videos played when I first got it also (3 days ago) now I keep getting the error message.

Re: Cannot play youtube video on 3g

Blackberry Bold 9780

 

I can stream shoutcast radio and browse the web and EVERYTHING else, accept Youtube videos.  This exception did not apply before applying an O/S update, and now Youtube streaming no longer works when connected to the 3G network but will work when connected to WIFI.  There is no error message, it will show the "buffering" wait screen, the green circle will swirl for about 2 seconds and then freeze.

 

I too cannot find a solution to this issue as my phone is NOT a grey market phone and when searching for AP settings, I am not techy enough with cell phones to know what they are talking about.

 

Can someone post the reason for this issue?  I am very surprised that I can use shoutcast radio but not Youtube.

Re: Cannot play youtube video on 3g

I have the exact same problem on my Curve 3G. I can play anything except YouTube. It won't work on 3G or Wi-Fi.

Re: Cannot play youtube video on 3g

Not to get off topic, the issue is it WORKS on WIFI and does NOT on 3G

 

Please post something separate for both not working, thanks.
