    Hi!
    Until a few days ago the YouTube app (old version) worked well on first iPad, but now I can not get it running anymore.

    I tried full new install, resetting settings, resetting cookies for Safari, logging out in app...

    I am not able to login anymore - only "Auth Error", but there are also no videos shown, when not logged in.

    I can see the error "Fehler beim Laden" (Error with loading") Tap to try again.

    Is YouTube app still working for others of you? Any ideas how to fix the problems?

    MANY THANKS

    YouTube has ended support for the YouTube app on the iPad 1. The YouTube app requires iOS 9 or later to work. The workaround is to set up a home screen bookmark for the website version of YouTube after turning off the YouTube app in settings.
    I’m curious as to how the app was working for you up until a few days ago as YouTube shut down support for the app over 3 years ago.

    Thanks for your quick reply. Yes it worked fine with logged in user and I was also able to give "Thumbs up" and comments.
    I am speaking of the "old" version of the YouTube app in store ("load old version") - not the one with the "brown device" logo installed on iPad from "stock". Any alternative ideas running on 5.1. IOS? Thanks.

    An old version will not work as the YouTube app now requires iOS 9 to work.
    As I said in my first post, the YouTube website still works fine on the iPad 1.

    Thanks again for your reply and suggestion with the YouTube website!

    I can definitely say that the solution with the "old" app version has worked well around 3-4 days ago.

    I can confirm that the actual YouTube app requires iOS 9, but I have loaded it the way like on this photo:

    https://www.howtogeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/img_579114f05fddf.png

    And this worked perfect until a few days ago. Then it started with "not loading" videos sometimes and now there is completly no way to get it to work.

    Is anybody here still using a YouTube app on iPad 1 or is able to try the OLD version download?

    That won't work. The app won't work if it's downloaded. You’ll just get an error loading message if you try. Just use the website to watch YouTube videos.

    The changes were more than a few days ago.

    Maybe YouTube shut down the server that was feeding the app?
