So a while ago I got a very I got a very interesting problem, i've never had to deal with anything like this, and it seems I'm the only one having this problem.
So the problem is that somehow, my phone suddenly refuses to open Youtube videos. It loads the whole page, but when i tap on the video it flashes confirming that i tapped it, but the it does nothing. I can't really use the app either because when i start it, it just freezes. I've been watching videos on it for 2 years now and everything worked fine until 2 day ago. I tried cleaning cookies, cache nothing worked and also downloaded several browsers with no use. As a side note, I used Dolphin browser when it happened.
Maybe, but let's look into it a little more before we do that okay?
I don't want you to have to go through that if there was a simple solution we didn't find. The YouTube app should be at the bottom of the list where all your other apps are. Try turning your device off and then on.
Hi, I have exaxtly the same problem with my x-10 mini pro, except for me the youtube app, launched from dektop, works. I have tried cleaning cache and changing browser, but to no avail. Strangely, my problem started more less at the same time as yours. Also directembeded videos on other websites than m.youtube.com start as well.
Can some other x-10 mini pro user check if it works for him? Cause to me it looks like youtube messed up their embeds somehow and m.youtube.com doesn't coumunicate with youtube app anymore.

Reason: fixed gramar nazi (hopefully)
The only thing I could think of is a factory reset. If you do that just make sure to backup your stuff or you'll lose it. Wish it wasn't the only thing I could think of, but this kind of thing usually fixes issues. If you two happened to update the phone this should work.
Ok, now, this is strange... The problem fixed itself. It simply started to work again... It may be related to opera reinstall I made, but that most likely isn't it - it didn't work instantly after reinstall. It rather reminds me the problems I had with searching in Google directly from adress bar few months ago. It seems like, whenever Google changes something the old Androids go crazy...
I think I have, but could you tell me how can i do it just to be sure
Hi..i was getting the same issue with my youtube player on my xperia x10 mini...not sure why and i have tried clearing data and done same as specified...however still having same problem and cannot play youtube...
The Xperia X10 Mini is exactly what it says on the tin - a "mini" version of the original S.E X10. We first come across this bitesize handset when pictures leaked back in January 2010, at the time it was codenamed "Robyn" but wh... Read More
