    I have been using the stock browser for youtube without issues until today. (Using Passport.). The ad before the video plays fine. Then I get a popup error message:

    There was an error retrieving media metadata information. The media cannot be played.

    Is this a new issue? I know youtube app is "not supported" but the sstock browser kept working for me.

    Did you try a reboot to see if that helps? sometimes things like the audio on a video won't come up and it works just fine after a reboot.

    I personally have never had a problem with YouTube.

    I think it might have related to the videos themselves because after a reboot the same thing happened but other videos seem to be working. You can't blame a BB10 user for getting a little paranoid right now.

    Just like one member here advices me, try to uncheck desktop mode in the browser settings. For me it solved the problem and youtube is working normally

    I keep desktop mode too. I use Zeus for YouTube, which works pretty well, but, now and then my browser just shuts down while playing, so I will keep this in mind to try too.

    I forgot I had desktop mode on. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy browsing much more. I forgot why I turned on desktop mode in the first place!

    I'm having some issues with youtube as well: blank videos, just audio. Basically everything is beginning to not work. But gosh if BB10 isn't still the best OS out there.

    I don't have any problems with Youtube, Desktop mode ruins the quality of the video, so all u have to do switch it back. Facebook and twitter look good under desktop mode

    I used it for a professional reference website that was not good under mobbile mode. (See that double typing?). So glad I switched back.

    Why not just get FastTube from the BlackBerry Store? That app works amazing and you can chose the level of quality to save data

    Wow. Can't believe I haven't been using this. Pre-download videos for later? That is heavenly.

    Hey buddy. I found a solution for this issue. Have you lately (or ever) installed any certificates? I had the same issue with local radio website, I couldn't listen to any html5 audio (other online media were working flawlessly).
    Solution is go to settings, security, certificates, find those you've imported and all of them (one after one) restrict to wifi connections only. After this, make sure, you've stopped your Browser. Then, you can re-enable those certificates for all connections again. I hope this helps!
