Problem 3. Unable to play videos

If you are having trouble playing videos at all, there are a couple of options. First check that the network connection is active, and if that is not a problem, ensure that the video is not set at too high a resolution (1080p on a Wii for instance).

Problem 4. Intermittent video playing

Check that your games console is fully updates with the latest system updates to ensure best playback of YouTube videos. This can be done in the "Settings" menu of any of the consoles. Look for the "Check for updates" option to check manually, or select auto update to ensure your console is always kept up to date with the latest changes.

Problem 5. Cannot access YouTube videos through the browser

This is a common issue with most games consoles, as they lack flash support. You can go to www.youtube.com/tv instead to watch the non-flash version of YouTube which works on all consoles.
