    Hi, I started getting this error all of a sudden today. Clicking a YouTube video from m.youtube.com takes me to the desktop website and the above error pops up. Not able to play any videos which I was able to play earlier. Anyone else facing the same issue? What might be the problem?

    Is your browser set to desktop mode?
    Also you can use apps like mytube or metrotube which is a better experience imo.

    There is an issue going with youtube India servers. This issue is only for some user not everyone and it occurs on all platform even on android.

    P.s:- I am not experiencing any issue I can play video without any problems on windowsphone,android, and pc

    Dot issued notice to block all the torrent sites as well as some file hosting sites
    But by mistake d changes made by d isp's to block these sites affected the YouTube and U all can check that dis prob is mostly for bsnl broadband users by reading comments on d article published by the sites on this prob nd
    I can easily play videos through airtel 3g

    1. Go to your youtube application or m.youtube.com via IE,
    2. play any video
    3. if it pops up an error "Sorry, cant play this file on your phone", close the pop up,
    4. you can see the video still pretending to load,
    5. scroll down the video to see the comments
    6. try to add your own comment
    7. it will ask you to sign in to your google account
    8. Sign in and try to play the video again.

    It will play.

    If it's not working still, I recommend just getting a third party YouTube app from the store. YouTube on IE for WP8.1 has been regulary buggy for me so far.
