I've had this problem ever since installed then uninstalled avast and the antitheft bit that sometimes youtube won't play videos.The app shows the videos available and I can search but when you click to play all you get is the spinning circle.
It doesn't happen often and a restart of phone always fixed it before but now that's not working.Cleared cache etc but nothings working. What can cause this and how to sort it?
Its a stock rooted gb rom and only happened when avasts hidden app didn't uninstall after getting superuser rights and I had to freeze the hidden app then uninstall it with titanium backup. It did say (avast) something about doing something to nand.
I'm using the moment with offical 2.1 release. I have it rooted with joey v7 and with live wallpapers. I cannot play youtube videos on the sprint network or on wifi. Everytime without fail I get a message saying "cannot play at this time"

I want to learn how to stream youtube video in high quality mode (similar to those videos you watch from your android phones on the YouTube app) .I have been scouring the net to find code examples and tutorials about streaming youtube videos in high quality but those are not the ones I wanted. The examples that I found are about streaming 3gp video format and I don't want those because they are choppy and seem pixelated. how to develop an app similar to the one as YouTube app? I know some of you may say, "YouTube app is already doing what you want to do, why bother writing something similar". I want to learn how it works :)
Most of the time when I click on a link to a YouTube clip it takes me to the YouTube web page where it tells me I need to have flash installed. I'm pretty sure once I clicked a link and it gave me the option to open it in a browser or the YouTube app, but now I'm no longer getting that option. Is there a way to make YouTube videos open in the app everytime?
while I am playing the video from browser (youtube.com), I am getting the PVMFInfoUnderflow event. Could some one explain why I am getting? in which scenarios we get this error. and if possible try to provide the solution also.
I am having issues with videos from Roosterteeth's channel ( primarily Red vs Blue episodes) playing on my droid.I have added the videos to my playlists and my favorites, but thet will not play in either the youtube app or the mobile site.I get the error message "Sorry, this video could not be played".Anyone have any ideas? All other videos seem to work fine.
I have Java and plugins enabled. Why I can play many online flash videos in my webview, but nothing on m.youtube.com works? I would be more than satisfied with a workaround that passes the video to the YouTube application.
I am writing an application to play the you tube videos using streaming. First method: I am getting the RTSP URL to the video using GData APIs. Here is the code to play the RTSP url. VideoView mVideoView = new VideoView(this); setContentView(mVideoView); mVideoView.setVideoURI(Uri.parse("rtsp://rtsp2.youtube.com/CiILENy73wIaGQkDwpjrUxOWQBMYESARFEgGUgZ2aWRlb3MM/0/0/0/video.3gp")); mVideoView.start(); But it throws error on both G1 device and emulator (Emulator has some firewall problem as per mailing list) Here is the error message ERROR/PlayerDriver(35): Command PLAYER_INIT completed with an error or info PVMFFailure, Second method: A hack way to get the path of 3gp file from http://www.youtube.com/get_video?v=<VideoID>&t=<>&<>.. After getting the file path and I can call setVideoURI and it plays fine. But it is a hack way to achieve the requirement. I have checked the Youtube App also, it also does the hack way to play the you tube url.(Checked with logcat). I have tried changing from VideoView to Media Player but no change in the error. Is there a "Clean" way to do this?
I just bought my first android phone. Everything works tip top, however there's zero audio for youtube videos and also for that other program. I forget the name, GoTv is something. Anyway, no audio with either. What's going on? I've looked through settings and even through my little instruction book and there's nothing on having to turn on the sound.
I want to playback youtube videos on android. I came to know (from the below mentioned link) that adobe demostrated flash player for android, but they haven't released the code yet. Is there an alternative way to playback youtube video's on android? Is there an application that supports flash content playback on android already (though I couldn't find any on "android market" or related sites) or any development work is underway?
I am using seek bar to show the progress of the video which I am playing. I am using Media Player / Video View. But when I move the thumb of the seek bar back and forth, the video is not starting correspondingly from the position of the thumb. Anybody has any idea of how to load the video from where the seekbar's thumb is positioned?
I am trying to stream videos from you tube on my emulator. As per the you tube data api documentation I only see rtsp support from youtube.When I try to use the rtsp url in Media Player, I get an error in prepare() method and the video does not play. Going through the API demos media example I came to know that emulator supports only http based progressive download. I want to know whether I can stream youtube videos using http on my android emulator. Is there any licensed youtube APIs which developers can use?
when accessing a website with embedded YouTube video from within the browser, I can play the video. When accessing it from WebView I haven't been able to do that. Is that not possible or is there anything I do wrong? WebView webView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.content_web_view);
So, after a video is uploaded to youtube. I'm looking for a way to access its uploaded youtube id. My best idea is that this information might be stored in some content provider somewhere. Anyone have an idea?
I was tried for RTSP stream for a long time, finally I could success to play the RTSP stream from mobile Youtube website: http://m.youtube.com/ My approach is to copy the stream link and paste it in my code, then, there are sometimes success to work(play) on Android and sometimes will not. I can't figure out why? Is something wrong about Youtube server? Because my code is just the same, and only change is the stream link URL. I used VideoView widget and my Android platform is sdk 1.5 and under x86-based, so I really want to know why and how can I solved for this. This is the logcat when I can't work for the video stream.

I have the Droid by Motorola from Verizon. I'm trying to use a youtube downloader to download youtube videos to my laptop and then convert them to AVI files and drag and drop them to my SD card so that I can view them on my Droid. The problem is the files either don't show up on the card when I attempt to play them on the device if they are in AVI format or if I choose not to change the format only the audio is played by the phone so I can't see any video. Any suggestions? I know this is a possibility because a coworker has done this on a BB Tour. I had him Bluetooth transfer some files and those show and play but the ones I'm attempting to tranfer by dragging and dropping the the files aren't working.
I recently purchased a Droid Incredible. Everything was working fine. Then I tried to play a video on youtube. Every video I go to play just freezes in the loading screen or when I click the video. It eventually force quits or goes back to home page. I really would like to look at youtube videos on my phone but now I cant.
When playing music with the stock Music Player application on my phone and turning the phone screen off or multitasking, the music is still able to play in the background. Is it possible to do the same with the stock YouTube app? I want to let the audio of the YouTube video I am watching to keep playing when I either exit out of the app or when I press the power button on my phone to turn off the screen to save battery. Although I can just set my phone screen to not go off when idle for a certain amount of time, but then again, that is battery consuming.
