Welcome to the forums :)

When you restored to whited00r 7, did you set up as a new device in iTunes, or restore from a backup to get your data back?

Have you installed anything extra from Cydia or otherwise?

Are you unable to play any videos at all, or just from that site?  Try out youtube in Safari and see if you can play videos from there.

Always crashing ties back into my first two questions though ;)  Unless it is a crash of incoming calls, which is documented here: Whited00r 7.1 FAQ/Bugs and Troubleshooting READ BEFORE POSTING, or one of the bugs from this list:

i set it up as a new iphone and i updated to 7.1 ota on cydia
it still cant play videos on browsers, it shows a PLAY SIGN with a SLASH on it which means i cant play the video
i watch on animeonhand.com and when i tried other sites, it gives the same results: CANT PLAY ANYTHING
youtube is the only one working
should i go back to 4.2.1?

So the actual youtube website via safari does work?  That is working videos then, I'm not sure why it doesn't work on 3.1.3 unless perhaps it is something to do with the hosts file if you messed with that. I have seen sites that can't play videos if you are blocking ads (at least via mobile with the hosts file).

That, or it could be the javascript engine is not able to handle it but the one on iOS 4.2.1 is, which if that is the case you need iOS 4.2.1 to play those videos, period :(

nope
youtube in browsers doesnt work it just loads but never actually show what it loads
what works is the youtube app only
so you're saying, there's no way to fix this?
how come there's no issue like this on the troubleshooting list here in the forums?

There is no bug issue like this because this is the first one of this kind ;)  I can't actually test if it works or not right now because my device is far away for about a week :(

It is possible youtube switched over how it plays back videos on mobile, to something 3.1.3 does not support.
There is no way to fix it if it was something all websites suddenly switched to using server side that means videos no longer work, because nothing can be changed on the iPhone side to update it to be compatible with newer web standards.

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 :)
