    Make sure you have the correct APN settings: Options > Advanced Options > TCP/IP

    I believe these are the settings for O2:

    APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
    Username for APN: mobileweb
    Password for APN: password

    Make sure you have the latest software installed, I believe it is currently the 4.5 version. You should be able to play most videos however if they arent formatted properly you will get the error msg

    Try Xenozu in the App World. It's like an app for youtube, I would say it's pretty decent. I used it a few times and I think it's ok. 3/5 stars!

    Actually for me Xenozu worked a lot better after the update. I'm liking it a whole lot more now.

    Me too ladylis. I've tried every fix that people suggest. Changing the apn, setting browser to hotspot, refreshing w javascript enabled, using m.youtube (duuhhr; these ppl are not qualified to give advice)... Nothin works. Now here's the annoying part: everything works perfect at my parents' house and my brother's house... Just not my house. UMA works everywhere. Internet works everywhere. M.youtube works everywhere... Just not over my (premium) comcast wifi. So... Wtf?

    I can Play youtube videos fine on wifi but the error only occurs on EDGE, Chances are the EDGE where I am sux lol. Also no O/s makes any difference imo . .. it's all flash anyhow.

    Pretty sure m.youtube isn't flash...otherwise I couldn't play it at all

    Initially I thought that a static IP was the prob, since my home router's configured for port forwarding. So every comp and smartphone in the house has a unique static ip. So I set my BB to auto ip/dns to test this theory... Still not workin

    Yeah my youtube still isnt working from home either! has to be a setting in the router thats preventing my phone to run youtube. I just don't know what it is and noone is providing any answers. I can get youtube working fine at work and at a friends place under wifi . So wierd. IM beginning to think if im even connected to the wifi at home even though it says im connected. is that possible?

    R u making sure u closed off anything u had open on ur phone like ur other apps? Make ssure there not running. Close twitter while ur using utube also as this will give u the error mesgs too.
