Default youtube "unable to connect to server"

Hi, as mentioned in the title, my youtube app tells me it is "unable to connect to server" when I tap on a video to watch. the app can list videos and their descriptions, but when I choose one, gives me the above error message.

I also have a similar problem when I click onto an embedded youtube video in a webpage. I then receive the message that it "Cannot play video: Sorry, this video cannot be played"

Using the template:


Android Version: 2.3.7
Network: Orange UK
Taskiller Used?: NO
[Optional]Are You rooted & which Rom: YES - Oxygen-2.3.2-Bravo
Issue: Youtube is stuffed...

Default Problem solved!

Hi,

Just to let you know that I sorted the problem.

My recently installed firewall, DroidWall, was blocking something called Media server, which I only discovered was necessary to youtube by viewing the firewall logs.
