    Recently YouTube made another horrible update that I can't stand, so I decided to downgrade versions. I uninstalled all updates to YouTube through settings, and downloaded a semi-recent version of YouTube in the form of an apk from online. It successfully installed and shows up in my downloads folder, but when how do I get that to apply to the current version of YouTube I am running (I'd like my version to be newer than it is now{13.20.54}) I press the apk in my files folder and it starts to say that it is applying the apk, but then it stops and says "app is not installed". Any help is appreciated.

    Be careful where you get the apk file also make sure that apk is for your andriod version and few other small details to look at .

    If it successfully installed it would be in your apps, not your download folder.

    Sounds like you downloaded the apk but it won't install. Have you gone into settings to allow the installation of apps from outside the play store?

    Also make sure you uninstall your current version of YouTube first.... you can't install your apk version of YouTube over your existing one.

    If I may ask - what were the changes? I haven't updated my app yet...
