    So what I've found so far with YouTube is you can look at some of the videos if I go thru google> YouTube> search, but I found that most videos flash blue then nothing happens. I attempted to use YouTube android app thru the market but it took over thirty minutes for it to buffer the video just to watch. What am I missing here? Or am I just having to deal with either of those choices?

    Thanks

    Youtube seems to have made some changes, I have the same problems....
    One thing I have also noted is that in the youtube app, if you share through socialjogger to FB, there is a "remote excemption"?? Then the clip isn't shared.... is there another way to share youtube clips to FB?

    I'm using the Thrive Rom on My tablet and the U Tube runs perfect. I'm thinking it a software issue. Ill look and see if there are any fixes for this .

    Try this may help.
    I installed Adobe Flash Player version 10.3 on my Acer Iconia Tab A500 and it fixed the error instantly.
    These problems are common in Android 3.x a.k.a Honeycomb.

    Unfortunately that is the only option so far.....
    I have the latest version of flash installed, and it makes no difference.
    Should I try to uninstall flash, and reinstall it?

    So network connectivity is good? If you have a computer at home try the same video
    on the home computer and see if it has the same problem.

    I reinstalled the Flash, and no improvement so far......
    I can't really grasp what the source of the problem is, as the Youtube app I have shows no signs of problems, only the mobile/regular Youtube site.....the reason I like to use the normal tube, is that I can access all content in that (and share....).

    i reinstalled the flash player, and tried it again just thru regular google search and it seems to work when it feels like it. Im sceptical on downloading the app again..
