Are you unable to use the mobile YouTube web site through Safari?
Yes, it works well with the browser but I'd like (and miss) the ease of the YouTube app.
I see. Nothing I can do to help.
Once Apple decided to stop making their own Youtube app it was only a matter of time before Google changed something; making it incompatible.
There are a few third party YouTube apps (besides Google's). You might try searching through them and checking the compatibly (at the bottom of the description) to see if they retain their iOS 5.x (or earlier) compatibility. If they are paid, be sure to make sure that they still work with the site as well.
Try looking at this app, "Instatube" ($2.99, USD). Granted, it's not free, but it's a pretty good app for viewing YouTube videos (well, IMHO, of course).
The good thing is that it it says it runs on iOS 5.1.1. And, it just got updated on July 31, so it's regularly updated, not just issued and forgotten.
Sorry about your troubles - I hope you find something that works for you...
Thanks Twerppoet and Marilyn,
I'll check that!
Good luck. Please let us know how it works for you. It may help others.
The YouTube app on my Ipad 1 started acting up a while ago so I deleted it then went to the Itunes Store and downloaded it again. It first told me the updated version was not suitable then offered to let me download an older version.
This has been working fine for me - I have been catching up on old series of Hell's Kitchen in bed over the past few days instead of dropping off to sleep!!
after re-downloading the app, are you able to connect to YouTube with it, access your subscription and your playlists and so on?
Unfortunately, I can't, here, that's my problem with the iPad 1 and iOS5
I have just doublechecked and yes I am, Pvol
Will check and try again tonight. Last time I tried that, I couldn't delete the app (no possibility for this). But I saw that this problem has been addressed on the forum so I will follow the mentionned procedure...
