    Do you have a FULL BlackBerry Data Plan?
    Are the other data features working properly?
    What error are you getting?

    are you using "m.youtube.com"? And do you have Opera Mini installed on your ph? If so, uninstall OM, rebbot your device and you tube will function again. For whatever reason, if you have OM, it conflicts with YouTube-no one knows why.

    lol...I'm thinking.....

    seriously though, if i think of anything else i'll post back. just a suggestion also-maybe a search might find something for you also. if you do, try using keywords like "youtube wont play" or "youtube buffering"

    it is also possible that the vids your trying to watch are not formated to view on bb. your using m.youtube.com correct?

    ok i did a quick search, heres one thread you can check out, suggests using vuclip.com

    YouTube :s

    il grab the other one i found also if its got any good info.

    ok, heres the other one also:
    YouTube

    also, one of the suggestions was to clear your browser cache. try that as well and see if that helps. good luck again

    I YouTube a LOT at the gym when I'm on the treadmill. Some days, I can't get through a 30 second video without it buffering at least a dozen times and then the play is so choppy I can't see or hear anything. Wifi won't help either. Other days, it works just fine.

    Clear the browser cache, cookies and your history. Do a battery pull and try it again. If that still doesn't help, turn your radio off and wait about 30 seconds then turn it back on. That usually helps me.

    Navigate to YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. from ur bb browser then there are several steps. Answers the questions then on step 6 click no and then on step 7 choose yes. See if that works.

    I had the same issue aswell! However, it seems that when I'm using Wi-Fi they play fine? I'm also on GMS (incoming only).. Not sure if that has anything to do with it, though.
