Hi

This could be down to your internet connection, have you tried it with a WiFi connection?

No youtube doesn't only play on a WiFi connection but in order to establish whether there is an issue with your phone or connection it would be handy if you can test your device with a WiFi connection. I suspect the reason why your youtube isn't working is down to your 2G connection as 3G is recommend for streaming of the internet.

In order to stream YouTube videos you will need a 3G data plan or a Wi-Fi connection. You won't be able to stream via a 2G connection. So your only solution is to get a 3G data plan or a Wi-Fi router and broadband package.

hey even in normal phones we can see videos using 2g connection?? there is no need for 3g. This sounds strange for me :smileysad: even 2g is slow, we can stream in normal phones.

Re: Youtube videos not playing in lumia 710

hello boss,

                       Is your other applications connecting fast with wi-fi apart from youtube ?? if yes means, i think there is some problem in ur phone and i have seen some posts to reset the phone. This is one option but am not sure whether it will work or not. If no means,  surely its because of net speed. because still am facing this problem. if we have good reception its playing , else its saying "NOT SUPPORTED IN YOUR PHONE" . still facing this issue... :smileysad:  if u found any solution just let me know. These are all the informations, i have collected and shared with u.

 

Thanks

Have you contacted Nokia Support directly ? This is a user-to-user only forum so you will not receive a response from Nokia Support here, you need to contact them direct. Use the link at the bottom of the page.

Re: Youtube videos not playing in lumia 710

i got the solution

data connection doesnt matter i think. 2G or 3G

other normal phones play youtube video with 2G data plan but window phone facing problem

i think it happens due to web browser  even if u use uc browser

if u want to play youtube video simply download  youtube browser its available in marketplace and its free

then after you are able to play youtube video

its work 101%

Download & install (YouTube HD "Idea Creator....") from STORE if you are using Lumia 520 or greater.... after playing one video you can uninstall that app. (after: original Youtube will still say that you need flash but press one time again to see the video and it will work fine=))))
