Yep, having same problem. Can't watch anything on YouTube on my Lumia 920 . Can't watch videos friends post on facebook either, which sux, seeing this is supposed to the best thing since sliced bread. When I connected to a friends WiFi I could watch YouTube, but when I go back to mobile data I couldn't watch the exact same video.

I have this exact problem. Never used to have any issues and on my iphone or an android phone no problems watching over 3g in either the mobile app or the web browser.
But on my lumia 920 over wifi no problems but as soon as I'm on mobile data can't watch any videos without that error.
(In Australia on Telstra)
It's a bit of a bummer.
Also its not poor coverage. I have full 4g/3g reception but still no luck.
Though I just tried it again to take a screenshot of the issue and it was working flawlessly now. I know I'm continuously getting full reception so its either some kind of error in wp8 or its something coming from youtubes end. But i have had it fail on me on more than one occasion.

sometimes its because of music rights. In some of my videos ive used music from Warner and they are not playable on mobile devices.
Same thing with Marvin Gayes lable, none of his Songs are playable on mobile devices (non live material).
its a pain if I spend alot of time making a video and then choose the wrong lable. Now I only use Songs that I first have seen on my phone in someone ellses video.

I even tested it straight after it failed on 3g and it played just fine on wifi.
Metrotube also throws up a "there was a problem playing this video in HQ" error indefinitely even if you have selected low quality and apps like tube download just go into an infinite loading loop like it isn't getting any data.
I also tried restarting the phone and toggling airplane mode and none of this helped fix the issue.
