Default "Cannot Play Video" Youtube- Archos 43

All of a suden BAM, my Archos 43 can not play Youtube Videos. I get a " Can not play video" mesage. My Archos 43 can still play Youtube videos that I have already downloaded to the device. Any help would be appreciated.

When I try to download the current Youtube App from Google Play I get an error message that reads "you device is not compatible with this app".

So, the Youtube that came with Archos 43 is no longer good, and the 43 is too obsolete to support the new Youtube App.

Plus, did you noitce that the Youtube App that came with the Archos 43 can NOT be deleted?

Default I found the Answer

The Youtube App on Google Play will NOT install on the Archos 43. The Youtube App that was installed on the Arcos 43 at the factory is OBSOLETE and will no longer work.
TO FIX THIS you must find an achived copy of Youtube App version 2.2.4. I downlaoded this version and now my Archos 43 can play again play Youtube videos.
