A few days/weeks ago I have read somewhere that Google/YouTube changed something in their links, I don't remember where, but soon after that UMPlayer stoped loading youtube videos. You can try any video on youtube, here's an test case ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6LOtN2RgEU ):

1. Search for this ID: h6LOtN2RgEU
2. Double click the result in the YouTube window
3. It show that the video is loading, the you are left with the blank screen
4. Hit Info button from the main window.
The URL is parsed as:
=18&url=http://o-o---preferred---sn-gqn-vhge---v3---lscache1.c.youtube.com/videoplayback?upn=_3c011y5jCU&sparams=cp%2Cid%2Cip%2Cipbits%2Citag%2Cratebypass%2Csource%2Cupn%2Cexpire&fexp=908920%2C919348%2C903807%2C922401%2C920704%2C912806%2C927201%2C913419%2C913558%2C913556%2C919349%2C925109%2C919003%2C912706&key=yt1&expire=1348585243&itag=18&ipbits=48&sver=3&ratebypass=yes&mt=1348562831&ip=2a02%3A2f02%3A2010%3A0%3A34e5%3A4d29%3A268b%3Ae0b4&mv=m&source=youtube&ms=au&cp=U0hTTVVTU19JTUNOM19NTVdDOjhQQ3poZ1RxQlhi&id=87a2ceb4dd918045&type=video/mp4%3B+codecs=%22avc1.42001E%2C+mp4a.40.2%22&fallback_host=tc.v3.cache1.c.youtube.com&sig=24235F6640DB607A0B965C6BAB83001584979701.7B724550840A8CE2E69838352A97D70DA913CAF6&quality=medium
