Everytime I search for a music vid on youtube, it only results with live performances, not an actual music video, even when I type in "official music video" I get random and live results of stuff that has nothing to do with what I searched for. Also when I go directly to the site, it asks to view vids with the browser, but nothing happens becauuse of flash player. When I first got my droid, the internet worked great, now its slower than dial up. And face book problems suck so bad I have to type in facebook.com everytime, even then, it keeps directing me to touch, and mobile. I know some of you are having sim problems with facebook, actual help would be great, I don't know how to disable viewing in mobile only.
When I want to watch the video from youtube facebook application redirects me to a web browser, and asked whether I would prefer that the application wants to watch youtube or on your browser. What should I do?
I have youtube connected to facebook and twitter via a google account. if a video is uploaded using the Android youtube application, shouldn't it automatically post to facebook and twitter, too? (or is that just for youtube in a browser?
My Facebook bookmark on my default browser doesnt load correctly. It loads what was on my page hours ago. Then I hit home and it loads what was on it a minute after that, and again. I have to hit home (Facebook home) about 10 times before it gets up to date. Its pretty annoying.
how to make android facebook app play youtube video with youtube app?
When i press the browser he opens a link from m.facebook to m.youtube and i dont want that...it will be better if facebook app let me choose between orig.browser,opera,skyfire and most important for me "youtube" app....
I have try another app named 3d flower facebook (is just like old facebook app but there are so much things missing) that do excactly that....
When I'm at home, my WiFi speed is typically almost 3m DOWN and 700k UP. (Lame compared to my speeds at work) While my 3G is typically about HALF of those speeds. But here's where my confusion sets in. When I watch a YouTube video with the stock YouTube app, videos buffer faster and/or play MUCH better when using 3G. I'm wondering if the 3G connection is utilizing some kind of compression that allows this?
Is it possible to open the regular Facebook page in the browser? I am almost able to log in to it, but then it asks me for my birthday because I'm not browsing from a "familiar location". So I select my correct birth date from the drop-down menus, but the Login button stays grayed out for some reason and I can't go any further. Has anyone else had any success?My reason for wanting this is so I can access the actual Notifications page. The way I currently have it set up, I get an e-mail notification in Gmail. Then when I click the link in the e-mail for whatever update it's supposed to take me to, it just takes me to the homepage of Facebook Mobile. Then sometimes it won't even list the New Notifications link. This makes it very inconvenient if I want to go find where to reply to a comment or something. I have to know exactly where it is, which is difficult if it's not recent.
YouTube links will always open in browser rather than youtube app.
I have tried Boat Browser and Dolphin, and they both behave the same way. If I google search for a youtube video through one of those browsers, and I click the youtube link from the google results... it will go to the youtube mobile page within the browser (rather than open the youtube app and play the video).
How to force the youtube app to always play videos linked from browsers?
I'm sure this isn't news to any of you veterans, but this is my first android device so please bare with me. I'm using the facebook app and have noticed that neither the app itself or the widget show the actual facebook live feed or provide a way to access it....
Of course my next thought was "well what if I just use the facebook page in a browser window". Turns out that's not as simple as I thought! Apparently facebook not only has a mobile page, it also has a "touch" page that it likes to route you to. Neither the mobile or the touch facebook pages have a way to access the live feed either....
I have a question with youtube/android market/internet browser after searching for something. For example, if first I type in the word transformers and then click it, it will search youtube or if I am on the android market/internet search for transformers. Next if I went to search for transformers 2, I start typing in the word "transformers" and right away the above word appears, but if I click on it, it goes right to the original search. How can I do it where if I click on it the word transformers will appear but not run youtube video/android market/web browser so I can then type in the number 2.
Just tried out xscope for the first time last night, the best browser out there! Its pretty awesome, however I cannot get it to launch the YouTube player to play YouTube videos OR download them, any workaround for this? I only get a "play video or download" dialog when trying to play a YouTube clip and neither work.
I read that the youtube app is 'broke' and tried going to youtube by browser which also wouldn't play the video.. This made me think i was missing some sort of codec so i started converting mp4s on my computer and found that only converting to [H.264.MP4] works for my samsung. So im wondering if theres some sort of codec i need to install on my phone like flash/divx/ k-lite codec pack to be able to watch youtube videos?
Using the Facebook app, some music artists post videos of concert footage etc. When I click on the video to watch it, my Incredible will ask me if I want to use Internet or YouTube to watch it. Unfortunately neither works for me.
When I choose Internet, YouTube's website pops up with the video and a play button. When I click the play button it does nothing. When I choose to open it via the YouTube app, I get an error saying that it can't play the file.
Is there a way to watch embedded YouTube videos that people post on Facebook via the app?
Ever since the most recent YouTube update (5.0.21), any time I try to open a link to a video (might be all FLV videos) in Facebook Chat, whether it's the actual Facebook app or Messenger, it doesn't work.
It tries to open in Gallery, and gives me a "Can't play this video" error.I've tried different ROMs, different kernels, etc... with the same results.
I just got my HTC Desire today, and have been learning how it works etc, but I just tried to do a google search, use youtube and sign into facebook using the facebook app and widget, and nothing will work. I can use FriendStream fine.. I updated my facebook status with it and it's showing updates as they happen. I'm using my home wifi and the phone says it's connected with signal strength 'good'. Can anyone explain what the problem might be? I haven't tried 3g yet, if that matters at all. (not entirely sure how I'd switch to it for testing purposes other than going outside out of wifi range)
So Adobe no longer supports android which means u have to use the app separate from ur browser...cnt figure out how to keep audio/video from YouTube app running while switching to browser...while in youtube when i hold the home button nd select the browser, it goes to browser but video becomes paused...i checkex youtube app settings but nothing...is it a different setting im missing?
what about radio apps...can u switch from one of those to a different app nd still have music playing?
I just read an article about the improved youtube mobile site at m.youtube.com. I have used the youtube app since the ota that was sent out to fix it and downloaded an apk that allowed it to always default to HQ rather than having to change it each time. But I just tried out the mobile site and it is blazingly fast compared to the app. The only thing that would make me not use this over the app is that I didn't see a way to watch the videos in HQ. Am I missing something? Does anyone else have a preference for the mobile site over the app or vice versa?
No idea why this wasn't posted in the Droid forum as well, but this works just fine for us. There's even an option in to always to HQ, even on mobile. Install it and enjoy. Credits go to pardonmyfreedom for posting this up in the Incredible forum.
YouTube HD from the EVO :D
Or, attached at the bottom of the post!
Either download it straight from your Droid browser, and click on it when it's done. Or, download it on your computer, put it on your sd card, use a file manager like ASTRO to find it, click on it, and install it.
You *may* get a warning about how a system app is being updated. That's cool, because it is
I've had the same "Most Viewed" and "Most Discussed" videos on my Youtube app homepage since the day I got the phone... I can't stand apps that never update properly and so far the Youtube and Facebook ones are both doing it
for some reason i can't seem to log in to the built-in youtube app. it works fine via the browser, but when i try to log in via the app it says either "the username or password isn't valid" or "there was a network error while trying to sign in to XXX. retry now or press the back button to cancel".i'm going on vacation in two days and was looking forward to uploading a few movies on the fly. looks like i will have to do it manually via the browser.
Not sure if there is a way to do this or not, but I don't see an option to share a Youtube Video with a GChat conversation?When you long press the video, then Share, everything is listed to share too: facebook, twitter, messaging, gmail --- but not GChat.You can work around by Sharing to Gmail, then Copy the text, and paste it into your Gchat conversation, but hmm? How do you report that?
