Video streaming directly to the BlackBerry smartphone is currently unavailable.

Re: You tube in BB bold

are they planning to make it available? this is a huge disadvantage for me and it makes me wonder whether I made the right choice choosing the bold against the i-phone

That's what I've been doing, but every time I get this message "Content not available. Server is blocked or unresponsive".

 

Any ideas as to what should I do to be able to watch youtube videos

Re: You tube in BB bold

I think the fix for most folks is in the tcp settings. Got to options->advanced_options->tcp.

 

For AT&T providers only :

if your apn is set to wap.cingular then youtube wont work.  My phone was shipped this way. Set the apn to isp.cingular and leave the username and password blank. You may need to reboot, but I can now watch most videos from m.youtube.com.

 

For other providers look at this for the correct apn settings :

Re: You tube in BB bold

I am not sure if anyone else has run into this, but it does seem to only work on the 3G network. If I connect to my wifi, it gives me an error. If I only connect to 3G(with wifi disabled), then it works. Starting to think that the wifi may be streaming too quickly for the media player to handle, whereas the 3G network is a little slower. Anyone have a wireless router that supports bandwidth limiting that can run a test with a blackberry bold that can play m.youtube viedos over 3G? If it is associated with download speed, then that may explain why it works sporadically, as the 3G speed jumps around.
