So since YouTube switched to using a more recent version of Flash, YouTube can't be viewed in the device's browser and FLVs downloaded from YouTube can't be played natively. That makes sense. Here's what doesn't: Downloading the source MP4 file (H.264 video/AAC audio) via YouTubeLoader.com and playing it on the device (with the Video Podcast plug-in) doesn't work either.

I have the proper plug-in (Video Podcast plug-in = H.264 and AAC playback).
Mediainfo details for a YouTube MP4:

Thanks! I'll try that.
Now if I could only figure out why the 605 won't see MP4s over UPnP that it can play locally.
I have a similar problem. I have an Archos 605 Wi-Fi 160gb model and it suddenly stopped playing Youtube files. At dailymotion.com it gives me the dreaded Flash9 logo with means it wants me to have at least flash 9.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
