Boxee and Youtube
With the upcoming releases of Google TVs, did Google start screwing Boxee's youtube app which has been the most used app?
Last week, my BB used to play all videos in a playlist...Not anymore..Hardly 1 or 2 plays in a list of 20.
The restricted message appears as an error.
I have paired youtube with my account..no changes made thereof. I also deleted all settings, re-paired the service with BB. Still the same error.
Google knows if they screw up Youtube app, many people will look for Google based solutions like mine. Vizio and Sony players are attractive in that option. I personally love my BB for non-youtube apps and local media. But then...

I have a GoogleTV device and it rots in the box.
I know that you can try the HTML5 beta for Youtube - I have not yet done so - I also do not know the implications on that on the BB.

I know that older videos on YouTube do play using HTML5, without requiring the installation of Flash, but not YouTube videos made with the codecs for Flash player version 11.
