    I know a lot of people have been having trouble with YouTube. I was experiencing these same problems. When i first got the phone YouTube worked fine, and then i started experiencing the following message. "Sorry, this video cannot be played".

    However i found that when i cleared my search history the videos would then play. For those that don't know how to do this.

    In the YouTube Application: Menu>Settings>Clear search history

    You don't have to exit the application after clearing your search history but you may have to go back a page and then re-select your video.

    This has worked for me time and time again. Hopefully it helps others.

    I'm paying for 3g, so I always use that. If I'm going to use wifi, I'll use my laptop.
