Topic: SOLVED :-) Some videos on You Tube not available after update ?

Posts 1 to 13 of 13



I've been using the wii u browser because it was awesome compared to the app. Now I get Sorry, the video is not available on this device !!!!

This applies to some videos only. (I initially thought it was the whole lot). Any setting to fix this ?

Having same issues now... Videos did play before... Now none seem to play.

Additional info... You can watch embedded videos... but videos on the youtube site do not play for some reason... Anybody else have these issues?

I read somewhere that the browser allows for changing the agent signature or something like that, and setting it to Internet Explorer fixes the problem

If you set it to Android it works..... but you probably wouldn't want to use the Android browser on the Wii U.

Now not even Internet Explorer works and I have to use Android. Seriously, what the heck Nintendo!?

EDIT: Nevermind, I think there was just a weird hiccup or something.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.
