    They can only play if not in the flash format.. there is a youtube app and that is about the only way to consistently get them to play. Unfortunately with out having flash capabilities you can play them.

    To do with your signal most likely, when I have lame signal I get this IO error.

    To be honest the Youtube app isnt great. It doesnt have a big cache, so basically rewinding videos doesnt really work.

    For in-browser playing hopefully we will see something now the webkit browser is (supposedly) being worked on, and adobe did that official 'we like smartphones but we dont like apple' for the media thing...

    However, if the bb browser supported HTML5 (does it anyone?) ive read that theres a way to make every youtube vid into HTML5 on the fly and play in the browser

    To View Youtube On Your Native BB Browser You have to change some Settings Click On Your Browser Go to Options / Browser Configuration / Check Support JavaScript & Check Support Embedded Media Also Browser Identification Should Be Set You "Blackberry" & then Press BB Menu Key Save Options. Then In Browser options Click General Properties / Scroll Down An Check Enable JavaScript Location Support, save options. close Browser And Reopen it. AND TO VIEW YOUTUBE VIDEOS Go To M.youtube.com thats as far as your going to get. m.break.com is another cool mobile video site

    Okay TO Fix This Problem Go To Options / applications / highlight Youtube "Dont click on it" Highlight it an press on the blackberry Menu Key - Disable Compatibility Mode. Reset Your berry and its should work fine. if this setting is already disable. Make Sure you Allow All Connections Asked When using youtubeapp By Clicking Allow or Yes

    Thumbs up HQ Videos in Youtube for BB OS7

    In your BB Browser > visit youtube[dot]com (*not mobile site) and sign in with your Google ID. Close the window.

    Do a Google search for 'Youtube HTML5' and follow the first link (youtube[dot]com/html5). Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link 'Join the HTML5 Trial'. Close the Browser.

    Now visit youtube[dot]com (*not mobile site) and search for your videos... Give it a second to load and click maximize button and watch video in HQ and Fullscreen.

    *Any video with flash advertisements will not work (video will ask for flash)
    *Make sure to login to Google Account settings from a Desktop and edit 'Video playback' settings for your account.
    *If a particular video does not load... sometimes playing the same video from another user works.
    *Follow the same steps for HTML5 to enable on your desktop so that your account is synced.
    *Video control features work well.
    *However, to exit from full screen... Do not hit return key or else you will go back a page. Instead use the cursor to click on 'Fullscreen' button at bottom right to exit view.
    *Video sharing feature to facebook, twitter, etc. also works well.

    I use 3g network and it works perfect.
