    I am having trouble playing YouTube videos on the application and the website. It will play about half the video and then it says there was an error and it just stops. It does it on the market app and when using the browser. Does it on wi fi and 3g. I've true hard rests reinstalling to no avail. It pretty bad I have to use my wifes hero to watch YouTube videos. Anyone know whats going on? I can play short videos like under 5 minutes ok but any longer and its like the phone stops downloading and when the.video catches up to that point I get error. I am still in my 30 day window so is it my phone or is everyone having problems? Thanks

    I tried it on wi fi and 3g and did it on both. Thanks for your help I appreciate it. If your phone plays it ok on both and I've tried everything like resets, clear cache and data etc. Then us there something wrong and I should get another. I have 5 days left before my 30 days is up.

    wifi works fine in browser and youtube app...3g...won't load which matches what I have been experiencing over 3g (and 4g for that mater) for about a week now.

    I am not sure what is going on with the network in my area (I have been all over DFW in the past 5 days) but 3g has been awful, as well as 4g

    try again with the router. Hero's have been reported to retain signal slightly better than the evo but I don't own one to test this out.

    If you continue to have the issue, and it persists at different location 5 or more miles apart I would take the phone in

    Thanks for all of your help Mr. Ed. I went to my docs today and its like 20 mins from my house and I was able to play like 5 videos no problem. Do you think its just my connection? I just dont get why it would do it on WiFi as well at my house. I usually get allot 10 down speed on my phone with my WiFi.

    something seems to be interfering with your connection when you are at home all of the sudden

    That is so annoying when watching a 20 min. Video and 15 mins in it says video cannot play and u have to start all over. I guess I'm not the only one. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't my phone cause if it was I'm still in my 30 days and I can go exchange it but sou ds like it's not my phone and just connection problems.
