Youtube free movies, play sometime, and error the ones with this setting(age related content)

I have a problem with the youtube app... I try to play the youtube free movies, some play and some do not. The ones that do not, gives an error message pertaining to age related content.
Does anyone have that same problem?

I'm using the Roku 4.

Go to https://my.roku.com/account/pin and log into your account.  Scroll down the page.  Do you have any parental controls set for your account?

If it's not caused at Roku's end, how about Youtube's?

Go into Youtube on your Roku.  In the lefthand column scroll down to Settings and click it.  Click on Restricted Mode - is it on or off?
