    It's likely that the movie has a problem. If you can view other movies try finding another copy of the movie. If you currently don't have a wifi connection where you are or if you aren't logged into it, meaning you have to type in a password, then you can't connect to the internet, meaning you can't watch videos on youtube.

    It's usually not anything you can fix when it says that, it's usually a problem with your internet connection or youtube itself.

    If Youtube or Facebook videos don't work anymore or if the screen is black you need to install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

    If you need a recent version of Adobe Falsh Player. Here is a free download: http://bitly.com/1p3PX6t

    well this could be a problem do to downloading of a unsafe software such as limewire,morpheus and other cheap downloading sites,so if you downloaded it off one of those sites and not the apple store your ipod is probably rejecting the movie..

    if you got it from itunes srry..

    i have no idea if thats the case

    network error...


    this can help you... use 'zillatube'

    It will help you to download videos from youtube to your computer, and also help you put them on your iTunes and iPod/iPhone.

    This is the fastest (and easiest) way.

    1. download the video (it will automatically be saved to your PC)

    2. convert the video to mp3 (or mp4)

    3. drag the mp3 (or mp4) into iTunes, then sync with your ipod.

    It works very well...
