I'm not sure about google, but they may not have them encoded in the proper format for a BB. Youtube is working to make more of their videos available for mobile, but with the shear number of vedeos they have it may take a while

Edit: With google, they videos not only need to be in 3GP format but also need to be delivered via RTSP (real-time streaming protocol) instead of the standard HTTP, so if they are not set up to do this, they vedeos will not work.
