    Hi Guys,

    I have been having this problem for months on my iphone and now on my Ipad but I just figured it out and it was my sonicwall blocking it. I had to Enable HTTP Byte-Range requests with Gateway AV and it immediately started working. I don't know if any of you are running sonicwall products but if you are this setting can be found on the diag.html screen. Hope this helps some of you because I know this is a big issue, if you are not using a sonicwall my assumption would be that other firewalls are doing similar things.

    Copesetic, thanks for the tip.

    Encountered the same problems on a DMZ behind a Watchguard corporate firewall. YouTube worked fine on Mac or any PC through a browser. The iPad and iPhone Youtube apps displayed the video selections, but as soon as a video was selected, the message "Server not correctly configured" displayed. Looking at the traffic log inside the firewall showed that no packets were being blocked, so policy setting were suspect. Sure enough, Http range requests were not being allowed by in the HTTP policy. Several web sources state that the iPhone and Touch use range requests for video download, so suspected that iPad does too. Changed the policy setting to pass range requests and problem solved. I agree that some of the complaints here are being caused by similar settings in other firewalls as range requests are blocked by default in Watchguards HTTP policy.

    RE: "Server is not correctly configured"

    I was having the exact same problem with Iphones we used to have and with a new Ipad.

    I finally figured it out! In our case the issue turned out to be a setting in the 'Anti-Spyware Policies' on our Sonicwall TZ 170 firewall. Turning off HTTP Protocol Inbound Inspection under the Anti-Spyware Settings did the trick.

    This also resolved an issue we were having with Netflix streaming.

    This was a bit hard to discover as the dropped traffic was not showing up in the Sonicwall log

    Hope this helps!

    God bless SonicWall. Turned off HTPP inspection under both anti-virus and anti-spyware and You Tube videos now get through. Lots of information on the web about the problem but very few solutions. Many thanks!

    The Http Range Request (checked ON) - in the Policy Editor, on our Watchguard 550e firewall, DEFINATELY WORKS, and fixed this error ---- nice job, SDBati. Thanks for the heads up.

    Poicy Editor => HTTP Proxy ==> HTTP Proxy Action Configuration ==> Click "Allow Range Request through unmodified" on the first page. Save it. Load it. Rock and roll!

    Connected to the same wifi network, my iPad (4.3) gets the error while my iPhone (4.2.1) plays it fine. So it def isn't a network issue for me. What else can I try?

    I do not recommend you disable inbound inspection on anything!  You are defeating the purpose of having a deep packet inspection firewall by doing this!  Might as well buy a $50 router at Best Buy!


    I am running SonicOS Enhanced 5.8 and here is the correct place to click.


    Security Services --> Gateway Anti-Virus --> Configure Gateway AV Settings --> Enable HTTP Byte-Range requests with Gateway AV

    Click OK


    If you have disabled inbound inspection, please re-enable it!

    I haven't installed anything how do I find out if I,m running sonic or something else. Completely new to apple and getting this utube error. Not sure what to do

    Thank you, PS. That looks like it resolved our issue with YouTube on an iPad, using a SonicWall NSA E5500. Much appreciated. We had opened up YouTube to our staff but it was still not cooperating until now. Previously we could only get YouTube to work through a flash-browser-app called Rover (not suggested as a fix, just an observation).
