    Can you root your phone? Sure. Will it help with the videos? No. Rooting just lets apps that need root access get it. If an app is running on a phone that hasn't been rooted, chances are it doesn't need root. (An app could try to get root, then - if it fails - just silently not give you certain options.) Flashing a new ROM may give you new capabilities - rooting just allows apps that need root to run as root.

    I dont know why some YouTube videos wont play (unless they are old videos and in a weird format) but videos on other sites are most likely using Flash and a stock precedent cant have Flash installed, but if root or Flash AreaRom to your phone and go over to AndroidArea51 they have found a way to install flash on the precedent:
