Ok, I downloaded ios6 on my 4s and like it for the most part. One of the biggest issues I have with it though is that when I click on some YouTube links in another forum I'm on, it won't play. Yes I've downloaded the new YouTube app and the videos did work before I upgraded to ios6. Here are a couple screenshots of what it does...

Here's what it looks like before I tap on the video:

And this is what it looks like after I tap on it:
D880027C-3403-4E9A-8CC7-5ABC8759C1F9-15848-00000E6839D8EF5C.jpg


Any ideas on why it does this and what can be done to fix it? I am going nuts not being able to watch vids from that forum! Thanks!

Hard reset the phone? Are you sure they are links to YouTube? I didn't think that YouTube required flash to watch videos on any platform.

yes I've tried a hard reset to no avail and I'm positive they are YouTube links cause I I "quote" the post with the video it says YouTube in the text of the link. Here's a thread from that forum with a video in it:

I get the same error message as you when I click on the video. All other YouTube links work for me elsewhere on the phone. I'm thinking this may be a problem with the forum itself. Are there settings for this forum you can mess around with?

It doesn't play because the forum has the video explicitly set to use flash.
<object width="640" height="390"><param name="movie" value="[link reoved]"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed ...[youtube link removed] type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="390" wmode="transparent" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
Not very wise encoding choice for any site with videos.
