    it doesen't matter what firmware you have. On 1.1.4 i've got the same problem (i alsow had it on 1.1.1-3) The videos are playable if you download them in MxTube though (atleast on MxTube under 1.1.4).

    if you used winpwn i think there was an option to install a youtube fix. admittedly it was made for the iphone to fix this problem which sometimes occured when modifying the baseband. you could try it though as it was mjade to fix this problem

    I did that and it didn't fix it; so i decided to do complete restore and not jailbreak it at first just to see if has to do with jailbreaking..... (unjailbreaked) went to youtube app played a movie and stilll got the message "this movie could not be played"!!!! ....after an hour of thinking... I reset settings again but this time i did this: Settings.app --> General --> Reset --> Erase all Content and Settings and this time it worked...... i can now play movies on youtube app, weird......
