    YouTube Issue, unable to find site?

    Advertisement



    Never had this issue before, but, I can get to YouTube (m.youtube.com) and see thumbnails of videos. When I select to "watch video", it says "loading" but then switches to "can't find site, error loading"". Any ideas why? I'm in good reception area too...

    Sounds like a problem with YouTube's mobile server. Doesn't sound device related, but I'd wait a bit and try again.

    Tried again, still no luck. Did a battery pull just to make sure it wasn't me. Seem to navigate other sites with no problem, so I guess it is YouTube's issue.

    seems to happen on certain devices, no one really knows why. ime i think it's related to bis/bes differences. we have found that my fiance has difficulty pulling up youtube at times, yet i never do. he's on bes, i'm on bis. this only became an issue when he switched to bes.

    I was sitting in the stall trying to relax and watch some youtube and had the same issue. I tried again a few hours later (not in the stall ) and it started working...don't know why.

    Remember that when your BB connects to a website, it tells the site that it is a Blackberry and the server sends specific instructions to the device's browser that it can understand, so it's likely that the BB version of the site was having a hiccup.
