"Cannot connect to Youtube" Error on iPhone 3G WD 7.1
« on: April 27, 2014, 04:58:46 PM »
Hi!

A few days ago I installed WD 7.1 on my iphone 3g (I had WD 6 for a few months before) and when I tried to open Youtube using wifi, the message "Cannot connect to Youtube" showed up and it shows "No videos" in every category (featured, most viewed, search) after I click "ok".

Before installing WD 7.1 I had no problems with youtube whatsoever and I don't know what to do.

Welcome to the forums :)

When you restored to whited00r, did you set up as a new device or restore from a backup in iTunes?

Have you installed any extra tweaks or done any file mods?

Also make sure that you clock/date is set properly. That can also prevent YouTube from loading.

That is true as it tries to verify security certificates and they are not valid

Can you search for any videos and watch them?  I know the video listing for the top videos is about as old as the actual iPhone app itself :(

It's to do with an API change :-\ we can't fix that :( but you can find videos by searching for them or using the site in safari.

Hello to everyone! I founded the solution for watching youtube videos on old iDevices. A have the same problem, my Youtube app is no longer supported and Safari can't play Youtube videos. And after some time of searching i found a browser named Mercury Browser, which is available on AppTimeMachine! It has good features and is supporting Youtube, so you can watch videos in High Quality from Youtube on it. Try it! It's working ;) Hope i helped :)

If you want a Fast simple browser I would suggest Mini Browser or Mini browser pro its a simple fast browser and the latest version works fine on ios 3.1.3 it also plays youtube videos fine without lag.  ipa and appstore links: http://iapps-old.weebly.com
