Videos doesn't work with Youtube app in Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Original title : youtube8 doesn't play

I installed the youtube8 app but can not get the videos working. Also when I right click and try to select the resolution just a blank white little box pops up. Anyone knows a cure?

Hi,
Does this issue occur only with Youtube app?
You may upgrade from Windows 8 Consumer Preview to Windows 8 Release Preview which is more stable and then check if all the apps works fine.
