Why wont this YouTube video play?
I've done a lot of searching and cannot find a definitive answer as to why some YouTube videos won't play on my iPod Touch 4g. For example:
clicking that link opens up the YouTube app but the video dies not play. I get a "Could not load movie" message.
I get this error more often than I would like. These are short videos usually around 3 minutes, have been uploaded for some time, and happens with about 20% of the videos I try to play.
Does the video play for you on your iPod / iPad? Do you have a workaround for when this happens?

However to combat this, YouTube did work on converting chunks of videos to H264 playback, but by default the entire backlog of videos did not go through this conversion process...so you will find the odd video out there that does not play.
I believe though (and please someone correct me here if i am wrong) YouTube by default now encodes uploads in H264 as well as flash and a few other formats for multi-platform enjoyment :-)
