    It all depends on the website, they have to be set up to run videos in a mobile format. Mobile youtube and tinytube.net are the only ones that I know of that are formatted in the proper format that the BB can handle.

    what carrier you with and what OS do you have?
    Also what is the error that you get? is it stating an error message or just simply loading the media player and then doing nothing?

    I had the latter and discovered if I configured the APN settings it all worked.
    BB 7100g (R.I.P.)
    BB Pearl 8100 (R.I.P.)
    BB BOLD 9000 (on the shelf)
    BB STORM (R.I.P.)

    ScSpeedy,

    Go to Options>Advanced Options>TCP. You will want to compare the settings in there with what you find here after you enter your country and carrier information.

    As volscian suggests, perhaps these particular sites use a video format that is not supported by BlackBerry devices.

    I am not sure, but you can certainly try and change the settings back if it messes something else up.
