    BlackBerrys do not support Flash as of yet. Rumors are that it's coming, but unfortunately it's not here yet.

    You can definitely watch videos on your device, but they just cannot be in Flash format.

    Thank you for your prompt response. Which BB app can I download to view video on my BB or is it surpose to be a standard feature? If yes how do I activate it? Thanks.

    you have the youtube app loaded on your device and it won't play? hmmmm I would love to help you but I'm confused as to why it's not working for you. I have been doing some research maybe something will kick in soon. I couldn't play youtube videos either til I went to appworld and loaded the app, since then it's been fine

    I found that vs 6 works using the browser and the YouTube App on my Torch and my wife's Style. Another option would be to try the Bolt Browser which would allow videos to be watched through the browser on older vs of the operating system. Chokem makes a good point since the network may not be fast enough to download the video. Have you checked how much memory you have, (this may be an issue if the memory is low). Try running it directly after a battery pull to clear the memory. Also on the browser go to options go down to clear browsing data, clear Cookies, Cache, and pushed content.
