    The browser version works fine, but one of the great things about the app is that it doesn't have any ads. Either way, YouTube works.

    Good luck with your failed trolling goals of 2012, OP.

    Here are my issues with youtube on the browser. I can't play a youtube video in a tab on background in browser. So i am forced to use the app if I want to play a music video and surf the internet at same time.

    Unbelievable how some people attack people who don't like how the pb apps/programs work. I hate apple, thats why I have a BB phone and tablet. But the way apple blends everything altogether with the ui is really well done.

    Would using simple browser help with the page reload issues people are complaining about with the native browser when using multiple tabs?

    The only reason I use the app is for quick viewing of recent history. Otherwise, the full browser's best. Same with Facebook, the app is a total waste of space for me and doesn't do what I need it to, so I'll stick with having a shortcut to the browser site on my home screen (as not-pretty as it seems, I'm more of a function over style kinda gal).

    Greetings fellow PlayBook owners.
    Why can't the PlayBook YouTube app work reliably. I find my self going back to the iphone 4 to keep up with my subscriptions.

    I've tried side loading the android app but it won't let me log in.


    I love my PlayBook and enjoy it daily but the you tube side is poor.

    Any ideas on how to improve my experience I'm on an n wireless network
    I don't know how playbook youtube apps became terrible for yous ince you don't mention anything. For me playbook apps works fine but I love watching youtube in web,
    in sideloading, you maybe missing something, like setting playbook to development mode, or check if you're using the latest DDPB version.

    While Youtube works great in the browser, I'd like the option of having the app work. My main beef with the app is that a) it will randomly stop and choke on video and b) there's no way to sort by most recent for a search - only for all videos uploaded.

    The problem with using Youtube in the browser is because of browser behavior. If you have a few tabs open, the browser has a tendancy to refresh pages on a tab when you come back to it. Also the browser stops playing when you switch to a new tab. If you're watching a video and want to google some information in the video, you can't switch tabs while still listening to the video and hop right back once you found what you're looking for. And (sometimes) when you do come back, the page refreshes and the video starts all over.

    Having an app would also allow you to truly multitask by having your Youtube app, Facebook app, Twitter app available by swiping across instead of tapping new tabs. Using these three apps in the browser breaks the Playbook's multitasking paradigm. It means that some apps you can swipe through and others you have to stop in the browser and change tabs.

    If you are on your Playbook just to catch up on your subscribed videos, then the browser is great. But if you're reading an email with a link to a video, click the link, and then want to check another website, you need to do a swipe-tabclick-tabclick instead of swipe-swipe-swipe.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the browser (except for the fact that HBOGo won't play on my Playbook), but to say that everything should run in the browser instead of in individual apps is a bit extreme. It's like podcasts. Even though the Podcast app sucks, at least it allows me to stop and then restart later. I know I can probably find the same podcast in the browser, but I don't want to have to remember exactly how many minutes and seconds I am into the video if I have to stop for anything.
    to be honest pb browser is just perfect but if you absolutely need to have an app try android one

    Youtube.com works just fine for me. I have never touched the app, because no app is better than the full website.
    True! the web version is much better than the YouTube app. Give it a try

    Like everyone else I prefer the browser to the app since you get the full site rendered properly. I don't like how you can't play a video in one tab and surf in another. I hope the fix this. Still I prefer the browser. I also prefer the browser for facebook rather than the app. Again, you get the full site experience.

    I have the same issues but only on You Tube and not all the time on youtube. Seems like every other video site works fine all of the time but YouTube only works fine some of the time. Same behavior on the app and browser.

    Browser works perfectly fine. A Youtube app is only useful for devices that don't support flash.

    I've only had problems with it freezing up - aside from that YouTube shows up very clear.

    So there is no way I can access my subscription via Youtube app?
    RIM has no brain.

    I have no problem with the app myself...not as 'eye candy' as others but works well for me.
