Its a RAM issue.

 

The PS3 can only buffer/download so much of a youtube video before it runs out of useable RAM. This is why your stupidly long videos don't play at all, while you can watch 20minute videos just fine.

 

I do also think its the fact that the youtube app is not programmed to use the PS3's hard drive for a swap file when working with rather large/long videos. Which I think was an afterthought. 


This was an issue when we only had the browser to watch youtube on.

 

Of course, thats mere speculation anyway.

 

Have you tried 1hr long videos?

So, if it's a RAM issue, then there's nothing I can do about it, right?

 

 

And no, I haven't tried watching videos that are around 1 hour long.

If your computer has an HDMI output, you can.

Nope.

 

You should try 1hr video and give it a shot.... you can probably fine a game thats split into 3 or 4 parts.

I do it all the time with motorsports coverage.... although the annoyance of having to wait a few seconds to load the next part is a bit annoying

It does, and I realize I can hook my laptop up to my tv.....but it's nice having an app on my PS3 where I don't have to.

I don't guess you could try a 3+ hour video and see if you're having the same problem I am?  If not, no big deal and thanks for the help!
