I was having the same problem - I saw another thread here about it tried what they suggested and it worked. Try adding an s to the http in the address. https instead of http.

Actually its really weird but a while after I posted this YouTube just randomly started working as if nothing happened. I didn't do anything so I don't know what happened.
