    Question Second YouTube video does not work

    Advertisement



    Hi Guys

    I am having this issue with my Bold and was wondering if anyone else has the same.

    When I watch a video on YouTube it works fine the first time and then when I go back to the seach results and click on the second it sits there for ages 'Requesting' and then comes up with the error ' A communication failure had occured. The server may be busy, please try again later'.

    Does anyone else experence this?

    I just tried it and it worked fine. I was on EDGE and not 3G so I don't know if that makes a difference.

    It is weird. Just then I was waiting for a video to load and it was 'requesting' for ages, then an email came though and then it loaded straight away!

    I'd try Edge, 3G and wifi if possible. Obviously because you're streaming video you're going to have to hold a fairly high signal strength...any heavy fluctuation in signal strength could cause issues.

    I too have had issues over 3G with youtube, but I wasn't lucky enough to have an email come through during the streaming to see what would happen.

    I say try different connection types for now.

    i have a similar issue that if i'm watching a video, it will play for 10 or 15 seconds, then stop, giving me the same error you mentioned.

    What connection type was that with? Obviously a strong wifi signal
    would be best for streaming video so if you're still having issues
    when on wifi I'd suggest either trying different OS versions or
    wait for RIM to fix what may possibly be an issue with the
    browser/media player streaming video in general.

    Honestly I think the only real issues I've had with youtube videos have been due to low signal strength.

    I have had a couple videos cut out on me on 3G, I might give .194 a shot just out of curiosity and see if anything improves.

    I used to have issues watching videos in general on my bold. Sometimes I would get errors and other times it would just reboot unexpectedly. I recently upgraded to 4.6.0.190 and haven't had any problems since. Might be worth a try.

    I'm not sure if it's .210 that fixed things but when I use Opera Mini to browse Youtube and select videos it works just fine.

    The only issue I've found is when you select "watch video" a separate instance of the BB browser launches in which you have to click on "start stream". If you watch a second video you must refresh the BB browser window or you will only end up re-launching the first video.

    I haven't had a single issue with this method and watched about 15 videos last night off a flaky 3G signal. All's well so far!

    You have a Curve, everyone here is asking you to upgrade to a Beta Bold Firmware.

    You are in the wrong forum

    Oh my god...I can't believe I missed that, so sorry.

    Luckily the method I described could still be attempted on the Curve, although I cannot confirm success on any device but the Bold.
