Youtube video won't play, only sound...!!?

Hi I've installed the giffgaff in a new Samsung Tocco Lite. Unfortunately youtube will only play sound, no video. I have not tampered with the giffgaff settings sent by giffgaff in any way (just installed from the mms and wap texts they sent).

 

Can someone please help?

 

I have checked and the phone is definitely a 3G phone.

 

Thanks!!

It does sound that the 3G speed isn't quite fast enough to give a succesfull stream
That's why you're only getting sound, there's nothing realy you can do to speed up the 3G speed, there's a few alternative sites that might work , il look them up and post them later

Ah right if it's only 2g you will find it difficult to stream on giffgaff, you might have been able to stream on other networks but a drop of only a few Kbps would make a difference

That link redirects to the wrong page paul
Did it state YouTube works on the phone?
As I said the speed looks like its just not quite fast enough
