    Default Cannot play video Sorry, this video cannot be played

    I've been having this problem where whenever i would log into my youtube account and watch videos i would get "Cannot play video Sorry, this video cannot be played" on every single video on youtube while i'm in my youtube account. But when i log out and try to see a video that i wasn't able to see before when logged into my account it would work... So idk what to do with it, simply ignore it and not get into my youtube account or see if i can fix this. Has anyone ever had this happen to them? and no I'm not talking about using the youtube app to watch videos but the web application

    Never herd of that happening. And thats weird honestly. Check into your youtube account on the PC and see if there is something corupting the process of playing back videos with your account. If all is well, Ummm Try a factory reset? Not to sure though.

    Happens constantly on my Infuse (not any other device for me). Reboot always does the trick.

    Uninstall the Official Twitter App and you won't have any media problems.

    Yeah i tried rebooting but I still get the message on every single video while using youtube mobile on the web application... Youtube works fine when i use the desktop option... But it takes forever to load So idk if i have to resort to a factory reset O.o and try to get everything back.

    But on the youtube application where the background is black is it common for some videos to be not available on mobile?

    do you have the Official Twitter app installed?
    If so uninstall, re-boot, and try again.

    Hi I had been experiencing the same issue on my Samsung Infuse. Out of nowhere I was unable to play videos on YouTube's mobile site or even view previews in my flixter movies app. I kept getting the same old message over and over. To make things stranger the same youtube movies worked fine within the youtube app. This was really starting to make my blood boil.

    I'm not sure what the actual issue was but here is what I did to fix this problem. Open your web browser, hit menu, go to more, go to settings. Under settings clear your cache, history, cookies, form data, location access, passwords and reset to default settings. Don't worry you won't lose any bookmarks. Exit browser.

    Next I uninstalled the flash player 10.3 update and immediately reinstalled it via market app under my apps. From here I went to youtube's mobile site and I was able to watch videos again, also my flixter movie app plays previews again.

    Hope this helps cheers.

    may I ask the reason to use mobile youtube instead of the desktop version or the app? I actually have the same issues you have with signing into mobile and videos not working. But I never use the mobile version anyway. Is it to do with the speed, commenting or bandwidth usage?? It seems to call upon a flash type player or maybe even html5 different from the desktop/app version.

    ok I just saw your post here Suma
    My android wont play youtube videos on the browser when im signed into my youtube account. - YouTube Help

    seems like it has been an issue for a couple months now and no longer a samsung only deal. I think it is something to do with how YT is linked with your google account. When did linking become mandatory? I forgot when I did this, but it was recent. i'm going to look more into this

    Hi,

    I had the same problem with my HTC android.
    The solution for this is to download an alternative video player called MX Video player
    It's free and a much better player.

    It didn't work on LG P500. iMDB app shows all the same message and that's not the only one

    Restore your android device and sign up for a new gmail account using same device. After that manually add your associated gmail (If you use gmail in your youtube login) sign in to your android and sync with official Youtube app.And, if you used Yahoo in your youtube login then go through Yutube app directly and try to login! Hope it will you to solve your headaching problem!! Best Regards!!

    Hi Everyone...

    Well this problem occurs with me (HTC One), but on literally every app I have, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Vine, Snapchat The lot... I literally cannot play videos. The video starts for about the first second then freezes, the audio continues for another 2 seconds before the video stops and gives me the 'Cannot play video' message in a black box.

    I have tried turning the phone on and off ( standard) but this still isn't working. Any ideas anybody? It's driving me mad now!

    Any help would be hugely appreciated, Thanks guys, Tom
