    Works sometimes for me. Some videos say they won't play on a mobile and others work fine.

    i just did what the OP did and can confirm the HTC Flash player has indeed stopped streaming any videos from m.youtube.com
    Could this be related to youtube's recent move to go web-based?

    Could it be that you've selected videos where the user has disabled the ability to play it on mobile devices. I've come across a lot of videos like this. The YouTube app lets you know with a note in the video's info, but this information doesn't seem to appear on the full or mobile sites.

    I work for a charity
    Manchester, England
    This happened to me yesterday. I tried playing a video from the YouTube site and when that didn't work I tried the YouTube app which also didn't work (blank screen.)

    I rebooted the phone and it worked again. Very strange indeed though...
