Nokia X6 will not stream youtube videos?

I am with network3 and they supplied me with a sony erricson  witch I didnt like so I bought a nokia X6 from a freind witch was origionally on the vodafone network. I popped my 3 contract sim in and :smileyhappy: it worked great! I could connect to the internet no probs, even watch youtube videos with great sound etc. After a couple of weeks, I can access the internet but, even though I get to the you tube site; when I select a vid to play It says cannot connect ? :smileysad:


3 have sent new settings to the phone now I have 8 "I think" but still I cant look at youtube vids! It worked 100% for a couple of weeks and there is no problem with the network as I have tried the sony erricson and that gets the vids no probs. help Please.

Re: Nokia X6 will not stream youtube videos?

You could try to download the latest youtube app from to see if that solves your problem.


Or bypass the apps altogether and visit using the phone's web browser. That site is optimised for streaming to mobiles.


Also check that Real Player has the correct access point set for streaming video.


Menu > RealPlayer > Options > Settings > Streaming > Network > Access point in use


This really is a big failing imho... you have to change a deeply buried setting for video streaming every time you use a different network to access the internet.
