Actually, a week ago I updated the ROM on my device when I called for a separate issue. This is the first time since the update that I went to You Tube. Sure enough, there's now a link that says "download you tube application". So I do, and now I have an app that is just like going to You Tube. I was using 'youtube play' before but this new app kills it.
If I use Inernet Explorer and go to You Tube, select a video, click 'watch video' I get the error message I described above. I don't think this new app is web based.
