    This has been going on for me for some time. An earlier search found me some info on downloading them and a fix in the DX forum that didn't work. Saw the new app today on main page, downloaded and now I have an updated player that fails to play movies for me. Anyone else having the problem. I've also tried videos on other sites and unless they just play on page through flash they all fail to play. Anyone else or is it just my messed up phone?

    I have the new YT app and I am playing videos just fine - this is on 4.9, but I haven't changed anything to effect that ...

    Probably just my messed up phone then. It's one issue after another with this thing the last month. First the camera, a shared problem. Then a wifi issue. Load fresh and fixed it then I couldn't play any of the 14GB of music. Now it reboots when unplugging usb and just at random. Plus, the video thing for some time now. I'd already got another one, but they want $99 for certified pre owned. I paid only $199 for the two we have now brand new. I like this phone. Droid X is tobig for my pocket and anything else I loose SS. :(

    Newest YT app works on my 4.8 as well. If I select HQ and am on 3G is takes a bit longer to buffer the clip, but plays fine.

    The new YouTube app runs beautifully for me... but the OS doesn't want to use it! Whenever I click on a YT link in the browser, it goes to the youtube site and tries to use flash to play the video... I want it to fire off the youtube *app* and play it in there. Anyone know where that choice is set?

    you can try clearing the defaults for the browser, not sure where else it would be kept.

    Try clearing the dalvik cache in the Chevy tools menu under Scripts/Other Scripts. My YT constantly goes on the fritz where I'll try to play a video, whether in HD or not and I'll get sound but a black screen. Clearing that cache seems to help. It's going to take a long time to boot up after you clear it, but that's normal.

    Incidentally, found this isn't a system or browser thing. .. it's the facebook mobile site. So you can disregard my complaint.
