I've got a Roku 3 - latest firmware. I tried playing a purchased movie registered with Youtube on the Youtube channel last night. It comes up with an "playback error : playback not supported on this device" message when playing the movie. Previously (like on Thursday), I was able to play my Youtube registered movies. Has something changed and are we now blocked from doing that? Because that would seriously suck.
I've occasionally run into the same problem watching movies on YT thru my Roku.I've always assumed
the video stream is for whatever reason incompatible with Roku (but will play on my laptop) and isn't playable thru Roku.On these occasions i connect my laptop to the tv and watch that way.
Maybe someone more knowledgable than me will chime in and explain why this happens.I'd like to know too.
