Kindle Fire HDX 7", HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers

Okay so until today I have been able to watch youtube on my tablet, yet today when I try to watch it freezes the webpage on any youtube video. I even went so far as to download the real youtube app for android devices and yet it freezes the app! What do I do?

Kinnyth,
While you're in Web ('Silk'), you can go to the web-menu Settings (top left) to clear the cache. I'd exit then and enter the Web browser again.

If that doesn't work, do the usual soft-reboot or 'Restart' by holding on to the power button for about 21 seconds and then releasing it (while *ignoring* the pop-up question of whether or not you want to 'power off).

After a bit, it should restart and reconfigure memory, which may take a few minutes. If it doesn't, then just tap the power button and it'll restart. And it should all work again.

Did you contact CS? With an HDX, you can even use Mayday so they can check your device.

Have you tried the mobile site?

m.youtube.com

Not every video is available there, but many are.

I don't understand this at all but I will not question it. Okay well I have done everything I read about that the Mayday CS told me to do before but now it works wtf....Very strange. I'm happy though thanks everyone.
