Wondering if anyone else is having this issue:

When launching the you tube from the drawer. It loads and i hit the menu key, go to account and try and login using my youtube login. Hit sign in and it says----there was a network error while trying to sign in to user name here. retry now or press the back button to cancel.

Anyone else receive this message? I can how ever watch videos but can't sign in.

Are you sure you are typing in everything correctly? I was having a problem signing into Facebook at first when I realized I wasn't typing numbers I thought I was typing......

I was getting that issue. Seems like when I typed in my Youtube user name, it was automaically putting "@youtube.com" behind it somehow. I went into accounts and sync and deleted this youtube account. On my pc i went to youtube.com and signed in with my google account (name@gmail.com). After I did this, the next screen allowed me to link my youtube and google accounts by entering my youtube id and password. Now i can log in to youtube on the droid using my gmail account.

Just so you all know, the sign into youtube problem happens on all android phones. It's a known problem. Some times it works, sometimes it does not. I guess the google login works thou. Nice one!

That happened to me and I was able to use my youtube login. I apporached the problem like I do most, with a big/bigger hammer or the more subtle doing the same thing over and over again till it works.

I kept hitting retry. 4th time was the charm.
