    Hello! Some time ago I deleted the YouTube bookmark in Safari on my iPad2, as I was using the App instead. However, now I would like to reinstate the bookmark, but I just can't find a way of simply adding a You Tube bookmark. (With YouTube open, the Safari Bookmarking symbols aren't there!). Can anyone help, please?

    You would need to navigate to the page for the clip within Safari to bookmark it.

    EDIT: you could actually copy the link, then paste that to Safari then bookmark it.

    As I explained, you can't add bookmarks from theYou Tube page nor can you add a link to the Safari Bookmarks (I have tried).

    If you go to the YouTube webpage instead of opening it in the app, you'll get this page. From there, you can add a homescreen bookmark.

    If you get this pop up, tap on cancel and do the search again. If you tap on open, you'll be taken to the YouTube app, where you can't add a homescreen bookmark. This time you'll go to the YouTube website.

    Hi scifan! I have tried to go to the webpage with the YouTube address, but each time it keeps coming up with the same view as the App, with no Safari options.

    Here's the direct link to YouTube. See if that works. https://m.youtube.com
    I just tested it and the link goes to the website and not the YouTube app view.


    If not, you could try deleting the app, then go to the website and create your homescreen bookmark. You could then re-install the YouTube app.

    The link still brought me to the App, so I think I will have to delete the App. If I do so though, will I lose any saved data or will that be saved to my account?

    If you've used the app with your account, you should find these when you log in again on the site.
