YouTube problem on Silk
If I click on a video in the Silk browser from the YouTube site, it won't play. It seems like I have never encountered this before. Is something odd happening today with Kindle HDX's and YouTube?
In lieu of this issue, I paid for and downloaded the VTube app and it seems to be doing just fine. I chose to get a fully featured app vs side loading the YouTube app from Google. Just my preference.
Edit: Spoke to Mayday-it's a known issue that began today. YouTube is dead in the water on Silk. She recommended downloading vTube (what she referred to as "the app".) I guess that's all to report.

Thanks for the post. My sister called about her HDX saying she couldn't get YouTube working. I just called & told her what you wrote.

I think the latest updates for HD2 and HDX may have fixed this. I'm able to play Youtube video with Silk again.
