HTC Desire :: Unable To Play Videos In Youtube App
Aug 22, 2010
I had found an issue on my HTC Desire. When i try to play some videos on Youtube app, connected through 3G or Wifi, it plays till some point and then a message occures: Sorry this video cannot be played bla bla and stops. No problem on same wifi network but with iPhone 3G.
I have had the droid x for a little over a week, my last phone was the eris. I have yet to be able to play any youtube videos on my phone, whether it be from the youtube widget, a browser window, or a facebook link. It just goes to loading video, and it never loads. Has anyone else had this problem?? I have tried it both with and without using wifi.
I figure maybe it's a Flash problem, but I can't seem to play ANY YouTube videos on my Eris. The error I always get is something about the video not being found. This is a new Eris, got it about 2 weeks ago so I am assuming it's got the most current ROM. Does anyone know how I can get YouTube to work while on the cellular network and not WiFi?
I just got the gsm hero. on a site that has embedded you tube videos, how do I play them in the you tube app? otherwise, it plays the video in the htc flash player and the video is jumpy and bad looking. BTW, menu>more>watch in HQ only shows up if your watching videos in the you tube app, it doesn't show up in the htc flash player.
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);
Iv`e managed to download a couple of you tube videos onto my samsung galaxy phone, but some of the videos won`t play, I just get a message saying " can`t play this video". why is this, & is there any way that i can get my phone to play all the videos that I download onto it?
I was trying to find a video on YouTube on my Droid that I could easily find on my computer, but I could not get the video to come up in the YouTube search using my Droid. I tried this in the YouTube app and the browser, but I got the same results. For this particular search, my Droid came up with 4 results, and my computer 20 results. I've also done google searches for particular videos, only to get a "video not compatible with YouTube mobile" (or something like that). Are these 2 issues related? Is my search on my Droid only finding mobile-compatible videos?
Ever since updating to Froyo, my DX won't play any Youtube videos, it just says "Sorry this video cannot be played" and below that, "There was an error trying to play video". Is anyone else having this issue, or does anyone know how to fix it?
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.
Greetings from a former BB user and a Droid user all of one week Until updating my OS to 2.2 I've been unable to view Youtube videos via the web or via the native app. Again, started immediately after the update. known or isolated issue? Any suggestions on a fix?
For instance: when I click on a video on cnn.com, the phone goes through the motions of downloading it and then I get a message: This content cannot play on this device.
When I go to the YouTube app and click on any video displayed, the message is Cannot play video. Sorry, this video cannot be played. The videos that I took with my phone and are stored on my SD are playing OK.
It seems, almost every video I want to see is unable to play with the youtube app. I'm not really a big youtuber as it is, but why have a youtube app on the phone if it can't play 99% of the videos? Although the browser works better, I do get the same result for some videos using the browser too. Is this part of the limitations with having Android 1.5 or what?
So I have had my Droid Eris for about a week now. The other day I decided to play around on YouTube to see what it was like. Here is the thing though, I have literally found like 1 video that will play. Most of the time I get "This video can not be played". Anyone know why this is?

I'm having problems viewing youtube videos from the installed app. It starts by putting the loading video screen and then after a short while I just get a dialogue box with 'Sorry this video cannot be played. there was a problem while playing' I am connected via 3g and have 4 bars on my signal (no wifi).
why can't i use the HTC flash player to watch youtube video? when i click on the video link in m.youtube.com and chooses HTC Flash player as player. it just shows the youtube logo then the screen is blank. do you guys experienc the same?
Our Android app loads RSS feeds for news and blog sites and displays the stories in a webview.Whenever a story has a YouTube video, the video doesn't show up and it doesn't play (the object is there, but it's just whitespace & nothing happens when you tap it)Surely, since Google owns both Android and YouTube there's simple way to allow YouTube videos to play in a webview within Android Apps? (They work great in our iPhone app).
Am i the only one who cant watch the music videos on youtube? when i search for them on my htc, they don't come up within the search results, but when i click the link in my htc browser i can watch them. how can i make the youtube application show the videos i search for? and i am logged in to youtube as well
I have had my HTC desire for about a week now and can't access any youtube videos. I can select a video to view and it looks like it's loading but after serveral minutes the error message 'Sorry no network connection right now, please try again later' or 'Sorry, this video cannot be played. this video is not available'
My internet seems to be working although it seems very slow (thought it should be alot faster). Is there something I need to set up to be able to view the videos? I've tried using the youtube widget and also using Dolphin HD but with no luck.
