Thread: Why do only some YouTube vids work?

  1. #1
    Default Why do only some YouTube vids work?
    Basically whenever I want to watch anykind of vids on youtube, some of them work, and on some of them a caption pops out saying that it cannot open that video. Does this have something to do with me needing some sort of upgrade? If so how do I go about doing that, seeing as my phone is unlocked and I cannot do any updates via Itunes.
    Any help would be appreciated

    Because YouTube is a flash based video site. Only some of the YouTube videos work. It is the same with the Music Store. You can not get every iTunes song on there.

    I'm finding that most of the videos, at least the ones I want to watch, are the ones that aren't playable.

    YouTube is in the process of converting all their videos to what the iPhone supports (H.264). By the end of the year all the videos should be 100% compatible.

    Do you know if they will up the quality on Edge since H.264 is smaller in size...
    The quality is so bad now is barely watchable...
