Anyone having problems with YouTube access through the regular YouTube app? When I try watching a vid through m.youtube.com it tells mr I need an app to view.
I can still view through other YouTube apps, but I'm wondering why the regular mobile site is no longer working for me.

I watch vids through m.youtube.com all the time. Heck, I honestly don't know what YT app I downloaded as I never use it.

Nobody else? I've clicked vids from forums that tell me I can't view it on my phone.
I still go to m.youtube.com and can't view vids.
Sure, I can use MetroTube, but that doesn't really help if I'm following a hyperlink from a web page or trying to watch an embedded video.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything!

Yup. Did a soft reset today.
Happens on WiFi and 3G. Wasn't happening a week ago.
I made sure to check bids without ads. No dice. It tells me that I need an app to view a video and asks if I would like to install one. If I press "YES" it searches that marketplace and says "No apps found."Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything!

Okay. I found a way to get it to work, but it's not ideal. I have to set my IE to browse as "Mobile Version".

I had the same issue yesterday. Today i switched IE to browse as "Mobile Version", then switched back to "Desktop version" and the videos play just fine.
Correction: It plays videos if i go to m.youtube.com from regular IE. If i go through Youtube app, it still tells me i need an app to watch the video. Which is very strange, as all the Youtube app does is it opens IE on m.youtube.com page

Been reading the review on YouTube app (which is just a link to mobile site anyways). LOTS of people saying it was working fine a few days ago and now doesn't work for them.
Looks to me like Google did something to mess it up for WP users. Make it as inconvenient as possible.

I found out the culprit regarding the youtube app not working on my Lumia 920. I had my website preference set to "desktop version" in Internet Explorer. Changing it back to "mobile version" fixed the problem.

I haven't been able to watch YouTube linked videos on forums when in Board Express Pro since I got this phone 2.5 weeks ago. Would this be a similar issue? If I go to said forums using IE the YouTube videos can be seen imbedded and open just fine, well most, unless they have age restrictions. Board Express Pro says I need to download an app, and when I click the link no apps are found. I need my YTB.

Google is fuc*Ing sh't up, they changed their coding so third party apps would stop,working, another small strike in their war on Microsoft. But lazyworm apps crew said they've pinpointed the problem, so I expect an update fix shortly
