Youtube videos won't play

many Youtube videos will not play - I get a message that says "Video Error". Is there a fix? Thanks.

Re: Youtube videos won't play

When I opened this link with desktop browser I've got a message that this video can't be viewed in my country (Russia). So I can't help you. Try another link.

Re: Youtube videos won't play

Hi Oleg, thanks for your help but I think I have resolved the problem. I accessed Youtube through the browser instead of the app / icon on the home page, and now it works fine. Thanks again, Shawn.

Hi Shawn,

I always open video in browser. The browser is awesome.
