    That's too bad. Wish we had a little more to go on, maybe you could help us out. Like what kind of phone are you using, what version of android is on it, is it rooted or not, running a custom rom or not and if flash is installed or not.

    :welcome:

    I've been having the same problem today. I can't play any YouTube vids. They all error out saying "Sorry, video cannot be played". Running chevyno1 SS v4.9 on my D1.

    @ joey: Thanks for helping us help you. and it sounds like you _should_ be able to watch videos just fine. When you mention normal apps, one of them wouldn't be a task manager would it? That's about all I can think of, short of trying to see what other apps might be conflicting.

    good luck

    @hapster: I _think_ you have a seperate problem as you have a different phone, your phone is rooted, and it's running a custom rom.

    good luck
