    Re: What to do if Galaxy tab 10.1 android tablets fail to play YouTube videos?

    It is possible to play YouTube videos on android tablets and mainly Galaxy tab 10.1. There could be some videos which are not supported by the tablet. The videos which are of the 1080 HD format would be difficult to be streamed via YouTube on the galaxy Tab. These videos can be streamed properly if they satisfy one condition. The videos must have been captured by the camera in the same format. If that is the case then the tab can stream 1080 HD videos files on YouTube without any issues. This is same in the case of other tablets from Samsung too.

    Might be a resolution problem and also if all the videos that are present in youtube cannot be played means there is a problem with the application so it better to uninstall the application and then re-installing the application may help. Try buffering those videos on your browser and if the problems still is present check your internet connection. If the videos played in browser are fine and there is only problem with buffering in application and follow the procedure suggested above.
    Hope it helps.

    Well,
    Dear to stream You tube videos you need to have a Flash player in your device.
    Find it in google play and download.
    If you already have,upgrade it to the latest available version.
    You can access all HD youtube videos of 720p with your tab.
    No issues will there.

    Dear Friend,

    Some HD vedio in you tube are too large and take time to buffer.If your phone RAM memory is less than that large vedio then that case the vedio is not play on your phone. But some small vedio from You Tube may play on your phone.Please delete some RAM memory from your phone setting option and try to view the vedio.

    Regards,
    INDRAJIT BARAT

    This issue occurs due to many reasons.
    If the video is not compatible with the tablet, it will not play.
    The videos having 1080 HD format are very difficult to play in tab because of the difficulty in streaming.
    But if the video is captured by camera in 1080 HD format, then it can be streamed.
    Check all these aspects to solve the issue.

    Hello,
    Yes you can watch 1080p Full HD videos in your Tab. But, these full HD videos are of large size so they take more time to stream. It needs very high speed internet connection. And the most important thing is the FLASH PLAYER. Check the Flash Player setting Or download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, your problem will be solved.

    Hey

    Try downloading adobe flash from playstore and install it.

    If you cant play the videos then install the official youtube app again. I mean uninstall it and install it again.

    Else download tubemate and play your videos. Its and alternative for youtube and it serves an additional purpose of downloading the videos from youtube too

    Thanks

    When a galaxy tab fails to play you tube videos,you must get ready to update your yiu tune applications or Flash player.


    You must also check internet connection ,if your internet connection is very low then it is very low probability to watch videos because youtube videos consume too much of data


    You can get Flash from play store in free,install it and also upgrade your internet data connectio

    Dear Friend..

    After upgrading your Android OS to the latest version, the settings in your device gets changed now.
    You need to get the internet settings again and also download some you tube apps for you device.

    A part from that, after upgradation, you need to update your Flash player also which is the most important software for the android device,
    After doing all these changes, you can again stream the videos,

    Thank you..
