How to fix video playback problems in Android 5.0?

Since my Nexus 7 (2013) updated to Android 5.0, I’ve had problems playing YouTube videos. I get an error message that says, “There was a problem while playing. Touch to try again.” When I try again, I just get the same message. How can I fix this?

I’ve also ran into this problem. This is a fairly common issue with the N7 since the Lollypop update, and has been addressed with the 5.0.1 update. This update was just released a few days ago, and you should have it soon if not already. In the meantime, you can restart the tablet or go into your settings and clear the cache as a work around. Another possible option is to go into developer settings and disable NuPlayer.

Here is a thread about it on one of Google's Android forums: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=79316
