One problem is that you could have the wrong date set. make sure you have the correct/current date on your device.

Are they going through a VPN/Firewall at all on the network/device? 

Have they used any push fixer methods or tried the SAM activation tool to get push notifications working?

I'm guessing they restored as new instead of restoring from a backup when they restored to whited00r 7.1 correct? Because otherwise that could explain the issue ;)

1) are you on Wi-Fi or on data (3g or edge)
2)if on Wi-Fi check your speed (it must be more than 0.25 mbps )
3)if your on 3g check the speed (same as above  more than 0.25 mbps)
4)which device your on ? ???
5)HD videos cannot be played on any of the armv6 devices
my guess is that the video you what to play is high definition did you try some other video with low resolution?
example- refer your pc and search for a low resolution video and try seeing the same video on the Idevice

HD videos can be played because youtube scales down the resolution automatically, to help people without HD devices, and with slower connections.  So that's out the window :( Also, speed shouldn't matter if they can play it in Safari but not the application, unless the application checks just for speed, but you would think it wouldn't connect at all.

So I think there is a tweak

did you try in safemode?
