Re: You Tube message Video Error

It happens to mine also. I've noticed this even from os 1.8. Now that I'm using 2.0, I can confirm it still happens. In my experience, whenever you see the error when opening "YouTube app" all embedded video on websites using the browser and some embedded (java?) software won't load either. 


Speedtest.net (won't load test box embedded in page)

Break.com (won't load video)

Vevo videos won't load also.


I tried hard reset and nothing happens. I hard reset and leave playbook off for a few hours and everything works again.


This always happens when I go to a page and the website will open a new tab automatically for ads. I close the new tab and "voila" everything is broken. 




I hope it gets fixed soon.

I get this on my home computer. It is not related to the PB.

Re: You Tube message Video Error

Same problem here, same error.  Only about 25% of the videos I tried to play using this app would load, otherwise I got the same error all the time.  I'm on a 32GB PB running OS 2.1 and on WiFi.

Re: You Tube message Video Error

the YouTube app for the PlayBook is a joke. Don't use it, use the browser instead.
