    How come I am unable to stream live video from the YouTube app? I always get the "Live event playback is not supported on this client."

    I even tried streaming the live Youtube video through the Zeus browser and I get this:

    "Media Error. There was an error retrieving media metadata information. This media cannot be played."

    Seriously, is this a blackberry problem or YouTube problem? Why the heck does every other phone out there seem to be able to watch live YouTube videos but not the Blackberry Z30. Am I missing something?

    I just tried it, it didn't work with the BB Browser or Super Tube, but I got it to work on Evolution browser when I switched it to Android id in the settings ( chrome and IE didn't work) it's a little choppy though.


    Live event playback is not supported on this client (Z30). WHY????-img_20160408_034220.png

    I tried it again just in case, had to switch in between the browser id's and clear cache to get it to work again. I didn't know that people stream live NBA games on YouTube, pretty cool.
