Solved! YouTube videos won't play, says "tap to retry"


Apr 1, 2017
My YouTube app on my iPhone 5 works perfectly. All the people I'm subscribed to show up and I can search as normal, the only problem is that I can't play the videos! When I click on a video no matter what it is it'll come up with "something went wrong, tap to retry" and no matter how many times I tap it's still not going to play! I've had this problem for weeks, I've tried deleting and reinstalling the app, signing out of my google account, clearing search history and cookies and nothing will work. I also reset my statistics on my mobile data (that's what I use for internet)
My YouTube works perfectly on my iMac with my google account so I don't understand what's wrong...
Please help me,
