    I have this problem where I cannot view certain YouTube videos on my iPhone and yet they show up on my desktop computer. I tried to email them to myself but when opening up the link on my iPhone it says 'could not load movie'. I thought any YouTube video I can view on my computer I could view on the iPhone YouTube.

    Are these videos relatively new to YouTube? because sometimes it takes a little while to make them iPhone compatible. It shouldn't take more than a couple days after being posted.

    I've noticed the same thing actually, my mate posts some
    stupid video's on YouTube. He will send me the link and I won't be able to view it - until I get to a desktop. It's kind of annoying, but as I don't use YouTube that much, I won't lose sleep over it :)

    Actually the message I get on my iPhone is: 'Could not load movie'. These are older videos, posted last September and some over 2 years ago.

    I'm now getting a popup when I try to see any videos on YouTube that says "server not configured correctly". What does that mean? It's happening on my phone and ipod.
