YouTube Player Not Working on PE or EE

One of the new forum members (fiona05) said she is having a problem playing YouTube videos on her PE. I haven't tried the Tube Player in some time so I decided to give it a try on my PE and EE and the player no longer seems to work after Entourage shuttered their doors. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? If so, any solutions or alternative players? I have FREEdi YouTube Downloader from Amazon and can Download as Video and play YouTube videos but having the play only option would be nice. I tried NextVid and I can play YouTube videos real time but I'm still playing with it to go full screen. It can be downloaded here:

Use the 1.3.x for Dingo and the 2.2.x for Ermine.

Got same error you describe with stock player. The freewarelovers one has worked for me for a few random videos I tested.

Thanks. It worked. It just takes a few seconds for the video to start.

I get that, too. My trick is to tap the 4th button on the LCD side (forget what it's called) and once I do that the screen flashes and the youtube plays.

A large part of the problem is that youtube is 'upgrading' their content to require flash 10 and so on - things our older tube app can't handle. The items that haven't yet been 'upgraded' should still play while the others won't.

There may be a work round for this but that entails first downloading the video and then using something like QQ Player to view it.

Good point. I had to download a newer version of FREEdi YouTube Downloader (version 2.1) from Amazon a couple of weeks ago because it wasn't working either. I just never tried the stock YouTube App until yesterday.

If youtube is upgrading to flash 10 won't this cause us problems? Last time I tried to go up to flash 10 I got no joy. Or is there a work around now? Youtube has been a great source of how to's from plumbing to rooting and I'd hate to gradually get squeezed out on the PE.

Happy accidents

On my new browser (Miren -- and thanks to the poster who suggested it!) youtube starts right up and plays fine. On the stock browser I get the sad message, then hit the back button and it plays. It's almost like it's saying, "haha...just kidding!"

Thanks. I also was able to make YouTube videos play using the xScope browser. Here are the links to download Miren or xScope:

You can also use FREEdi YouTube Downloader free from Amazon (if you have Ermine installed and the Amazon App store installed) to download and play YouTube videos as an alternative.

The Freewarelovers Android app will not download. PE says the size cannot be
determined.

I have a new PE from WOOT with Ver 1.6 software. Does anyone have an app that
will play youtube videos ?

Thanks,

Are you downloading 1.3.x for Dingo? Try downloading the file via PC and then transferring it to the Edge using a USB drive, via cable, or wireless. I usually download all my Apps using my PC and transfer them wireless to the Edge. This way I have a backup copy of the App should I ever need to re-install or say downgrade to a previous version of an App if I don't like an upgrade or it doesn't work.
