    Can anyone help me here?
    I'm having problems viewing youtube videos from the installed app. It starts by putting the loading video screen and then after a short while I just get a dialogue box with 'Sorry this video cannot be played.
    there was a problem while playing'
    I am connected via 3g and have 4 bars on my signal (no wifi).

    i have not tried with 3g as ts very expensive for data heavy stuff like youtube , but it works fine on my wifi but i do know that if your internal memory is not enough this can happen, you can solve the problem by clearing the youtube app cache frequently .
    Try going to manage apps> youtube> clear cache.

    It might be the video itself, there's a weird setting some vids have which means that can't be played on a mobile device.

    no idea why anyone would set their video like this, or maybe it's a youtube thing for certain videos; either way it's annoying.

    Can you see any vids on youtube? When you're out and about it can often be signal strength.

    You could try using the website instead of the app:

    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
