There was a problem while playing. Touch to retry.
Every single video I try to play in the youtube app gives this message: There was a problem while playing. Touch to retry.
If I go to Youtube.com, Cannot Play video. Sorry this video cannot be played.
The videos do not even start to play. It doesn't even try for very long.
I have the lastest update and updated prl. And also the lastest youtube app update.
It's terrible. Any ideas?

I am not getting any errors at all. I played around six clips and all play within seconds. Are you using 3g, 4g, or wifi. Sometimes using 3g, or wifi will buffer a lot depending on the signal strength. However, if you're getting this error while on a good 4g connection..then you need to update Data Profile. Menu - settings -system updates - data profile.
PS. The video itself might be the cause. Also, restarting the phone help to refreshed the system as well.
Best of luck.
It seems some have this issue and some not at all. I find this other places online, too.
I am mostly on 3g or WiFi. I have a weak 4g signal at my house. Have the issue even on WiFi. I restarted my phone. few days ago when Pandora totally locked it up. Didn't help. It did seem to improve a bit when I updated my profile. Thanks for your replies and if I find anything else I will post here.

Yes I get the same exact error when trying to play purchased movies from the Google Play Store, there tech support is working on the problem. Even if I download the movie to the device it still won't play. I think a Google Adobe situation is behind this.
