    Hi all, first post.
    Don't know if I have an ipod touch or ipod touch 2G. I couldn't find how to tell from the settings on my unit.

    BUt anyways,
    Videos that used to play fine on my device on youtube now don't play at all.
    Like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrrxaECZOfw

    what gives?
    Now I get a popup window that says can not play video.

    model: MB528LL version 2.2.1

    Edit....
    well that's weird, it plays now when I click on the link in this post, but when I search for that same video on the youtube search, it says video can not play.
    any ideas?

    Try a search on youtube for: redcat rampage pipe
    and it should be the first video.
    DDM Dominator pipe.....

    I'm getting a lot of videos like this on youtube that can't play.
    Is it a youtube thing?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    It says on a few YouTube vids that the movie format is not supported
    Is there something I'm not doing? Does youtube not support itouch anymore?

    I get that some times. Videos wont play b/c it says it cant play the video. After it just played!!!! I have to keep tring untill it does play. Its stupid. One thing to keep in mind. If your date and time is all wrong. youtube will get an error "cannot connect to yuotube". I found that out after upgrading one day and youtube wouldnt play anything. Went into the clock app and seen that the date was set to a year behind. I set it to the right date and youtube worked.

    Very weird.
    Even after clearing cashe it still wouldn't work.
    I had to restore it, per apples guide on their help site.
    Now I can view those bids

    FYI
