    Hey i searched online and found the youtube.apk file and i was able to install it successfully on the tablet but when i open it it shows "The application youtube(process.com.google.android.youtube) has stopped unexpectedly.Please try again." then it just force closes. any ideas??

    edit: I was able to play youtube videos in browser by selecting the desktop option at bottom of the page. Not sure why youtube.apk app did not worked.
    thanks for your help.

    My tablet already has 'market' & 'youtube' preinstalled, but while 'market' worked well, 'youtube' wasn't, so I just download another one from market. Here's what I did:

    1. uninstall 'youtube' by tap system>applications>uninstall youtube.
    2. tap market>apps>search 'youtube'>install 'youtube'.
