Youtube Streaming Problems

Hello all.


I bought a BB Curve 8900 and i can't seem to stream videos form the youtube mobile site. When i try to stream the video it gives me the following error message:


Cannot find web address. Verify that this web address is valid.


Anyone knows why is this?

I've even tried downloading a youtube player from the app store but it also doesn't work...


thanks in advance
