No plugin needed, just take your BB browser to m.youtube.com for the mobile site.

Crantock can you provide the URL of the video you are trying to watch? As well have you tried accessing it via the WiFi Browser on the BlackBerry instead of the default BlackBerry or Internet browser ones?

sharpie9 - not through m.youtube.com

 

But 've been using vuclip.com to download videos and watch later with ease! For vuclip, just click the "Play Video" link, and it will have a popup asking if you want to "open" or "save" the file. Just choose save, and it will let you save it onto your memory card for future use!

Re: How to play internet videos?

I had the same issue and discovered that the device does not play video if I am connected over a wifi network. However, when I disconnected from wifi and accessed the same video over the 3G network, it played just fine.
