Default My Storm cant play Youtube!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Iím very sorry if this has already been discussed...but i canít seem to find it!!

My Blackberry storm will not play youtube videos...As soon as press play video the video starts to load with a green icon flashing in the far right hand side...seconds later a box appears in the centre of the screen saying "An error has occurred attempting to play media...with a red box this time flashing in the far right hand side sayĒ error playing"....Its becoming very frustrating ....i cant understand why i can get into the site but cant play the videos...can someone explain step by step how to get this sorted and what to do about it...i would really appreciate it!!

Thank you

Not all youtube videos are optimized for mobile play.

Make sure you're using the blackberry browser. If you've changed it to load as Internet Explorer or Firefox, it will think you dont have java enabled. The blackberry browser settings have an option "Enable javascript location support", and also under Browser Configuration there are check boxes for "Support Javascript", "Support Embedded Media", and make sure Browser Identification reads 'Blackberry'.
