    There are a number of apps that will let you view YouTube, just search the App Store. As a last resort (or maybe your first choice), you can use Safari.

    I spent hours downloading various YouTube apps and searching the web trying to find a solution to this problem. I was getting "video not available" and "playback error" messages depending on the APP. I finally stumbled across a recommendation to use the Google DNS server address in my network settings (8.8.8.8 ) I tried it and now my videos work great!

    Are you on "YouTube.com"? If so this usually requires flash. Try going to "m.youtube.com" for the mobile site, which works for me; or you could download the official YouTube app from the App Store
