I have the same problem! i cant watch youtube videos. i dont know when it began. check my video at youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GASFv3eXJ0s
i could use the "flash video player(beta)" but not anymore same prob like u!
in the video, as i see it, u hav a slightly different issue, flash player beta(dats in the mobile version of youtube) works fine for me, but it's the desktop version of youtube player that doesn't work on my N8 anymore, tho i clearly remember it was working on my device about a month or so ago. It works on my N97, it works on my dad's C6-01, it works on my brother's N8, but it doesn't work on mine. I've even tried the hard reset. No solutions till now. I wish there was a harder reset than that.
Where did you get the following info:
In fact Youtube and all other like Dailymotion changed Flash 10.1 compatibility to 10.2 for accelerated Flash for GPU. It is optimised for Flash10.2 on Windows, compatible with Flash 10.1 and incompatible with Flash Lite 4."????
I have the same problem with my Nokia.
hey, brother ahs the same firmware version that i have, aka Symbian Anna.....the vidoes work in his phone, and not mine. It's rather frustrating.
I do have the same problem since April 2011, I did everything to fix it, I contacted Nokia Customer care and I did all troubleshooting, I did soft reset, hard reset, re install firmware via Nokia suite that was when the firmware available was de PR1.2 , I installed then a flash lite version 3.1 (I suppose It’s for Nokia N97) and it worked but to slow and to many bugs , but I was able again to watch YouTube videos on desktop mode on my Nokia N8, because it was using a different version of flash lite it worked.
Then I had to uninstall flash lite 3.1 and returns automatically the version 4, and now I am not able to see desktop YouTube videos on my N8.
Less than 2 weeks ago I update from Symbian ^3 PR1.2 to Symbian Belle based on Anna version 22, and I tried to watch YouTube videos but same happened just the F sign for flash , then couple of days ago the official symbian anna was available for my product code and I downgraded to Symbian ^3 PR1.1 and tried to watch YouTube videos and same problem, then I Updated my N8 with Symbiam Anna V25.007, tried again and same issue. I am just hoping for a flash lite version 4.5 o something like that to avoid this problem. I am frustrated

i'm facing similar issue with the "f" symbol coming in as if not able to stream the youtube videos. i just tried from my N8 by going on to the following link http://www.google.com/mobile/ and then just clicked on the youtube link over there. since then i am able to play the videos. I also realised that the flash version is not up to date which is resulting on the inability to view the videos. At the same time you can view the same video if you try playing it from the m.youtube.com
Same problem, since few days YouTube desktop version (and others video site) stop playing videos (other content load correctly). Anybody solve the problem ? Mayby some aplications couse the problem ?
