Whenever tried to play videos on YouTube it says "unknown error", it had been working fine all these days, from past few days i've been facing this issue ?


I was also unable to access app store & game centre for which I got a fix by updating the DNS server in wifi section

iPad 2, iOS 5.0.1

    Do you get the error when it tries to play embedded YouTube videos specifically, or getting to YouTube webpage, or...??  How is access to normal web pages (,, etc)?  Do videos on those sites (assuming they're not Flash) work?

    Yeah I'm having the same problem with my iPad 2 and iPhone 4s. It worked over 3G but not on wifi.

    I'm having this issue now and I can't figure out what to do. I have dappled in my router settings and have tried changing the channels from "Auto" to "G" and/or "N" and got no results. This is very frustrating...

    I didn't fix any settings with the router. I just randomly tried YouTube today and now it works fine for some reason. It was only YouTube mobile not working. So there must have been something wrong with the mobile site.
