    I know there have been other threads about the Youtube app no longer working (majority of the time), but it looks like it hasn't been commented on in awhile....

    SO, I really want to get this phone but won't until I know the bug is fixed.
    Can you Eris users let me know if your Youtube app is working or not working? (basically by not working I mean, almost every video you try to open you get a message saying: "Sorry, this video cannot be played")

    Also, does anyone have any logical ideas as to why not EVERY Eris user is affected by this bug??

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you mean a "Dunce" (Maybe a typographical error?)

    Nope, My Youtube app sucks as far as working goes haha..

    I can watch VERY few videos on it.. However it's not really a problem because although it's kind of sluggish on some things, HTC Flash (Integrated into the 1.5 OS) works well if you just use the browser and go to youtube.com -- There I am able to watch all the videos without problems ;)

    lol, no I meant dense...meaning slang for "stupid"...but thanks anyway?

    As for using the browser, nope, not an acceptable option for me because videos are NOWHERE near as good quality as when you use the "high quality" option in the app itself. (when it worked of course)

    ohh my bad for some reason I though there was an "a" before dense.. sorry to be a dunce :D

    They seem to be pretty high quality on my end.. I do wish they would release a Hulu app tho.

    to add a poll (may be too late, but try)

    above your first post is a drop down marked "thread tools"

    click that and see if add a poll is an option.

    if it is follow the steps.

    Doesn't work for me. Even after I applied the leaked update it hasn't worked. Ever since the initial December update it's been DOA. The only time I can get a video to play is if I'm using wifi, and even that is very rare. I know that other minor bugs take time to fix and we should be patient, but this Youtube issue is really inexcusable on the part of HTC.

    I 100% agree that this is a pretty big problem to not even acknowledge....geez.

    Caddyman: thanks! I added the poll~

    Yep, doesn't work for me. It was fine until the OTA. I had not one problem with videos playing until them. Very annoying. I HOPE it gets fixed soon!

    Very annoying is right. If not for this pretty big issue with the Youtube app, I would get the Eris today...I can't get the phone assuming that it will be fixed soon, b/c there is not even any talk about them "working" on an issue.

    Not working for me either. Using leaked update as well. Has never worked for me. I'm really missing CTFxC right now. Agreed browser is not an acceptable option.

    I use the browser, both the HTC browser and Dolphin and I can RARELY get YouTube to work. Kinda sucks. Hope they get it fixed cause even my stupid Palm could play youtube. frick.

    No one likes a grammar Natzi (not meaning to be politically incorrect)

    Anyway, it doesn't work for me. I am hoping for a (quick) fix.

    I bookmarked Youtube and put the shortcut on my home screen. I think this is a temporary fix until HTC fixes this.
