Make sure you are connected to the internet. Go to Settings>General>Network>Enable Cellular data (for iPhone) For iPod Touch, make sure you are connected to an operational WiFi network. You can do this by just going to the Safari application for example and doing a google search to check and see if you have a usable connection. If these do not work, quit the running apps by double clicking the home button then holding down an icon at the bottom of the screen then exiting out of the apps one by one. If this does not work, restart your iPhone or iPod Touch (it is okay to restart because the jailbreak on iOS 4.2.1 is untethered, meaning you can turn off your device without having to re-jailbreak) Try to open youtube when the device turns back on. If this does not work, go to Safari and search "youtube mobile" and click on the first link. This will direct you to the browser version of YouTube. Once on that page, tap the + button at the bottom to add this page/link to your home screen. It will function like the regular YouTube app, and in my opinion, its faster.
Hi Leon6253, Ive been having the same problem, noticed it about 4 days ago. On my iPhone 3Gs, 32gig, I have 2 pages of "saved to homescreen" icons of specific & individual music videos at YouTube. Previously they all worked FINE!! (I loved having the tiny pics/icons of whichever singer & their specific URL Direct to their song on my home screens). I would simply tap the icon/pic & YouTube would automatically open up & start playing. NOW, ZILCH !!! Instead it takes me to a YouTube page for that particular song but there is NO VIDEO window & NO BUTTON to "play video"!! Just a white square where the video normally is.
SO WHO SCREWED THIS UP? YOUTUBE & GOOGLE, or what??? This is very distressing. Not only does the video NOT PLAY, but it also automatically changes my prior icon/picture into a RED icon with a "play video" type button. But if you tap on it, STILL NO VIDEO, but it merely goes to the page for the video &, as described above, there is NO VIDEO not PLAY button on the webpage!! Grrrrr.
Sorry, I don't have a solution, just wanted the world to know you are not alone.
The youtube app on the phone is provided by the network (original provider of the phone) so unless t-mobile provide that (and other services) you can't use it... but you can connect to the normal youtube by using safari it just wont be optimised for the iphone like the app is
I FINALLY GOT YOUTUBE WORKING on 1.1.4... Step 1: backup your settings and files on itunes Step 2: restore iphone to default( this will erase everything) Step 3: try Youtube before Jailbreak to make sure its working Step 4: ***important*** run ziphone for JAILBREAK only! YouTUBE remains working. when I tried to DO-IT-ALL youtube never worked afterwards. Step 5: Sync iphone to get your settings, contacts, emails back
