    I am having the same problem on my iPad (iOS 5.1.1) and I was using the YouTube app just fine until last week. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but still can't sign in. Each time I try it says Authentication Error.

    This is very disappointing as I do not like using YouTube in safari, the user experience is nowhere near as good.

    Under the circumstances you may have no choice as support for the app on older iOS versions has been cut off.

    YouTube does not allow the downloading of videos on YouTube. We do not allow discussion of the means to pirate copyright videos.

    What’s interesting is that it is now possible to download YouTube videos to iPhone and iPad quite easily, and Apple have provided the tool to do it!.
    All you need is to use a Siri Shortcut, and it can be done using the YouTube ‘share’ button, and sharing it to the shortcut.
    A quick Google will come up with the necessary Shortcut programming.

    I wonder how long it will be before YouTube find a way of preventing it though?

    That will last until Apple blocks the creation of that shortcut. Also, however you do it, downloading YouTube videos is a violation of their terms of service.
