Can't Play YouTube Videos?
For a week or so, every time I try to play a video on YouTube (going thru either internet or firefox and then the YT player takes over) I get the black "loading" screen, then a "This video cannot be played" thingy.
Last night I tried to use the YouTube app, and vids were working on that.
So I used the app again today, watched a couple vids, went to watch a 3rd and bam--Didn't work anymore.
Why does YouTube hate my Evo now???Fuzzy Foliage (my nerdy African violet blog)

Don't be mad - I'm going thru the same thing on mine. I'm getting great 4g signal so internet connection isn't the problem. This has been a vexatious problem for most EVO users. I'm not sure if other devices are having the same problem.
I think the app itself is causing this. Mine had gotten so bad the other day I had to reset my phone thinking a corrupt file was causing this.
For the time being until we get an update, or this matter is eradicated.... do this >> From the homescreen press menu - applications - manage applications - all - scroll down to YouTube and tap force stop, clear data, cache, and tap on uninstall updates.
Go into market tap menu - my apps and update YouTube.
Best of luck.
