    Hello everyone. I have a nexus 10, when I go to YouTube to watch some videos. Some of them work but some said "Unsupported video format" on black screen without sound. It can't play the video. Why is that? And how can I fix it? Thank you!

    I've got the same problem too. I can play mostly shorter clips but I can't watch full movies like Ted, Moneyball. If anyone knows what format and how to install it I really would appreciate it so much.

    I bet the issue is Flash DRM. Most likely full length copyrighted TV shows will be copy and rip protected, whereas the short user uploaded videos of cats playing pianos or whatever, are not. That's why they're working on a PC which supports the Flash DRM and mobile devices do not.
