    It's not exactly a 'fix' but there are several Youtube players on BB world....some free and some costing a buck or two. I tried one of the paid apps and it seems to work pretty well...it sometimes pauses when buffering, but continues to play when I poke at it. my phone's not handy right now...I'll get back to this in a while...

    Update: The app I downloaded is 'Player For YouTube Pro'...it cost $2.99. It seems to work pretty well....high rating and lots of options, most of which I haven't explored. If you're not a spendthrift like me, you might want to check out the free viewers...there are plenty of them.

    When I get an email with a YouTube clip as an attachment, it still goes to the BB browser, which times out when it starts buffering, usually at about the 1:19 minute mark. I find that sometimes I can force the clip to play on the browser by manually forwarding on the Youtube play slider, but it keeps crapping out. I'll keep playing with the Player app and see what kind of issues it has [the 5-star rating on the app is a bit of a scam...after you install the app, it asks you to rate it 5-stars before you play anything, and doesn't seem to offer any options to rate it lower. Something more to investigate...]
