You pay for YouTube?

Don't have any technical issues with YouTube. However all their Google+ crap is doing my head in.

It does seem to go through various phases of '#%&*$# up' for me at times.

It's my main source of entertainment some evenings so it can be annoying when it does play up.

No kidding! Somehow I have a youtube acct and google+ (don't need or want), on the same login. I have to choose which one I want all the time.

No issues other than how frequently the youtube app crashes on our google tv.

My Kindle Fire crashes pretty often as well with YouTube. The browser simply stops responding and I have to then relaunch it.

My Android YouTube apps are horrible. Lots of "null" search reterns, video searches and suggestions that have missing previews, and videos that can't (or won't) play.

On the desktop, it's stable. But the UI has become one of the worst I have ever experienced on a website.

They've really cranked up the amount of annoyance the last week or two on those of us who refuse to merge G+/YouTube account and migrate to the G+ account, everytime I log in there recently is seems to default to my G+ account for no reason and so my subscribed channels are empty and I have to go through the rigamaroll of switching accounts just to use stuff that has worked fine all this time.

It is becoming so annoying that I am considering moving my gmail account to something else just so I can delete the stupid G+ account... truly Google is reaching Microsoft levels of annoyance now.

Can't they just admit G+ is a failure and move on? they're ruining a good product YouTube trying to save G+ which is already a failure and no one uses.

Yeah I've encountered the same problems on my Kindle Adlabs. It seems at least right now that YouTube is a lot more Apple friendly when it comes to their mobile site.

Which is the most ironic thing I've seen about Google since their anti-NSA spying statement.

Same here with the login thing. I had a span of 2-3 days where comments wouldn't even show up at all. Not a big loss, and probably doing me a favor in most cases, but if I wanted to leave one, I was screwed.


I refuse to buy a flight sim that I have no interest in playing, on the off chance that MAYBE someday they'll make the one I really want to play.

Youtube does suck anymore. Hated them wanting me to use my real name all the time, now I hate that they switch names on me when I restart.

Thank goodness somebody else is having this problem. I was worried I picked up a virus from some of the ... other... websites I may or may not have visited on my Kindle Fire.

I think it's something to do with android OS and Chrome as used by the youtube app.
"Force close..."
Sometimes helps turning off the tv (a google tv is basically a big android tablet), but not always.
Seems to be no patch yet, although I noticed it did get a patch the other day. Been going on for a while.
