    Default YouTube app keeps force closing

    Every time that I try to click on a video in the YouTube app to watch the app force closes. I dont recall updating any other apps since the last time I used my Tab, I've restarted the Tab, and also cleared the cache of the YouTube app but it still force closes when attempting to watch any video.

    Any suggestions?

    No suggestions, but you are not alone. It is happening to me as well. Looking forward to getting this resolved as YouTube is one of my 3 most used apps on my Tab.

    BTW, I did take a firmware update recently and can't say for sure that I have tried youtube since, until now that is.

    Also just started happening to me tonight on my acer a100 with honeycomb. No idea what is causing it because it was working last night and now it's not. Haven't changed anything. I tried clearing app data and cache through settings and rebooting. No bueno. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Just realized my att uverse app is doing the same thing when i try to stream a tv show. Also I CAN watch youtube from the browser, though it's useless since it doesn't prevent standby...

    Yup. Same here. My brother's A100 Iconia is doing the same. Must be a YouTube problem.

    Misery loves company it appears.

    Ytube is still working on my EVO although it is rooted. Not sure if that has anything to do with it but I figured I'd throw that out there.

    Thanks for the replies and I hope it gets fixed soon!

    Was having this problem and thought it was due to the firmware upgrade so I hadn't tried it since. BUt since everyone said it seems to be fixed now I tried again just now and it's working fine, so I agree it must have been a YouTube problem. Thanks!

    I am having force closes on my Photon 4G, but only when I go to UPLOAD a video. I used it to do this last week with no problem, but that was before I rooted the phone and added bootstrap recovery. Today I'm on a mission to re--flash the phone, test it, then root it, test it, bootstrap, test it, etc to see what the core cause of the problem is.

    I know that I've used Titanium Backup to freeze some of my bloatware apps that came on the phone (Sprint) but I am pretty sure I only froze apps that were not essential to these functions.

    Only time (and a lot of hacking) will tell

    Running stock Android 2.3.4

    It's the latest update. Go to your settings>Manage Applications>ALL>YouTube and uninstall updates.

    Fixed mine. Don't install the latest version of the app until they fix the issue.

    Or use Tubemate. Not in the market. Google search "tubemate.apk download" to find it.

    I used to have that problem till i noticed that if i went to apps under setting and cleared cache and data it would not FC on me until i signed back into my account through the app. As soon as i signed it, it would start FC'n all the time. cleared data/signed out and it worked. good news is most of the time you don't need to be signed in.... at least for me.

    I did all that, but I think it was an issue on YouTube's end and it started working shortly after I posted the question (three months ago), as it did for others.
