Welcome to the forums.

What OS is loaded onto your device (options > about)?

Youtube is supported on OS 4.5 and higher. Unfortunately, there is no official release of 4.5 for the 8830. However, if you search around, you can find some beta OS version for the 8830.

That explains your problem. There are betas floating around.

Don't ask for anyone to post a link to one as it is against forum policy.

Google is your friend

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

As a consolation, and if you stay in 4.2, you should be able to play CNN and ABC News videos. I know that wasn't your question but you are NOT completely shut out.
