    Updated my Captivate to Android 2.2 last night. I followed the instructions to the letter, and the upgrade went through successfully and with no problems at all.

    Until today, when I noticed that no videos from youtube would play. This is the message I get: There was a problem while playing Touch to retry

    So then I go to the Video Player and try to play one of the videos I recorded with the phone and get: Sorry, this video cannot by played

    Anyone know whats up???

    No other issues from the update beside this.

    Sorry! Nevermind.. After about 10 battery pulls all the videos started working.

    Interesting.. I'm wondering if repeated reboots would have done the same thing.. good on you for posting what happened.

    I had the same issue last night. Powered the phone off and on again and it worked on the first try. This was over wifi at home.

    As it turns out, this is a recurring issue! Usually when the battery life is below 50% it will start. A power cycle, or battery pull will fix it. But it will indeed come back.
