YouTube error in playing video

Recently had FiOS TV, internet and phone installed. Could not get the YouTube widget to work. With some help from this forum, got Media Manager set up and working so I can view pictures, play music, etc from the TV. When I run the YouTube widget, it says "Installing YouTube..." on the screen everytime.  Then I can enter a search from the TV and see the YouTube results.  When I go to play the video, I get the red hand and "error playing video" message.  Could not locate any good solution on here, hence the new post. Understand - I have already reinstalled MM and there appear to be no firewall issues since I can view pictures and listen to music on the TV from the computer.  Please help getting the YouTube videos to PLAY.  I made sure FiOS had this before I switched from I'm worried! Thanks.
