Hello,
There was a known issue with respect to YouTube playback and jailbroken iPhones. Earlier on, the jailbreak would change a configuration file that would render YouTube "broken" as it could not connect to the internet (either through Edge/3g/Wifi) to play videos.
If this is the case, I recommend accessing Cydia and performing a search for YouTube. A few fixes that will repair related issues such as the video not playing, audio fix, etc will appear.
Select the one that matches your particular issue and after installing the fix, reboot your iPhone and YouTube should now work correctly.
Alternately, if you have not jailbroken your iPhone, then perhaps trying to reboot the device will fix the problem. This is a common "fix" for some iPhone related issues like Wifi trouble, Youtube, apps that hang/frequently crash.
You may also consider updating your iPhone's firmware OS to the latest version possible (3.1.3, as of this writing). This also resolves many persistent issues within the iPhone file structure.

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.

Youtube videos wont play


Dump the junk you don't need , backup your iphone, then reset to factory specs. perform a restore from your compuiter and that should correct the isssue if you removed enough junk to make more space so the youtube app can run.

Use tube in my iphon


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Turn on the iPhone's Wi-Fi by tapping "Settings," then "wi-fi" and finally "On." Your phone must be connected either to a wireless network or 3G data plan. Youtube videos can be searched and watched only if the iPhone is receiving Internet data.
  • Tap the Youtube icon on the home screen of the iPhone. You can access the iPhone's home screen by pushing the "home" button located just beneath the screen of the phone.
  • Search for specific Youtube videos or browse featured, most viewed or favorite videos. Search for specific videos by tapping the search box and typing in your desired video. Browse Youtube videos by selecting one of the tabs on the top of the screen.
  • Play a Youtube video. When you find a video you wish to watch, simply tap the screen over the video. The video will begin playing in landscape mode, so turn the iPhone sideways so it is oriented horizontally.
    Control the video with the onscreen buttons. You can pause, play, fast forward, and rewind a video clip from the iPhone screen. Tap the screen to bring up the controls and tap the onscreen icons to control the video.

    I hope this solution helps you.
    Let me if you have some confusion
    Thank you for using FixYa

    My daughter is watching youtube videos.she uses up to +5 gig a day. what can i do to reduce the usage and still alowes her to watch her videos


    Youtube can save LOT of bandwidth: here's how: when i go to any video, play it for some time(say 4 minutes) and then go to fullscreen mode, and watch it for a minute, and then press the "X" button to restore the original video size, it starts to download video content that had already been downloaded (when video was in fullscreen mode) as shown by the red progress bar of the video, which is a waste of youtube server bandwidth and user's computer bandwidth.

    I phone wont play streaming videos from internet


    Sometimes, if the video is not in mp3, mp4, wav, etc. format, the iPhone is unable to read it. This is why youtube is so prominent for the iPhone; however, even on youTube, there are videos that cannot be watched from the iphone... so it's not the phone, its the video format :)

    Youtube wont play..


    If you have an iphone 3G there is a direct connection to an iphone friendly version of youtube but you can of course still access youtube from safari.. however be aware that if you do not have a wi-fi connection or at least a good 3G connection you may not be able to view any youtube video due to lack of bandwidth
