We're seeing other reports of problems with YouTube right now.  If you removed/reset device/reinstalled the app then you have the latest version of the channel.  The channel apps are created and maintained by the channels themselves, so that's who you need to contact for help.

Re: Youtube


Thanks for the post.

How many channels do you currently have installed? We would recommend removing any unused channels from your device, then trying to perform a factory reset on your device. Then once your device is setup again, try adding the Youtube channel to your device to see if the issue is resolved.

For more information about how to perform a factory reset, visit our Support page here: How do I factory reset my Roku® streaming device?

Please keep us posted.

Re: YouTube not loading on Express+ 3910

I am running into this SAME issue too on my Roku Express+ 3910 when trying to view YouTube (get error message "Can't run channel" "... not enough space...") along with Apple TV not loading (will load to 100% and then return to the Home screen without loading).

I removed YouTube, restarted my Roku device, and then reinstalled YouTube, but same issue still exists. I also made sure I am using the Default Theme pack.

Please, please Roku try to fix this huge and VERY annoying issue and please work with Google too if the issue is with their YouTube channel code!! 

And if this is not a bug in RokuOS, then when the "Can't run channel" message appears, instead of only giving the "OK" choice, please also give a choice to view which channels are taking up most of the space so we can try to focus on removing those channels.  Thanks!

Please do not keep ignoring this issue, Roku, and please STOP blaming the user -- you, Roku, are ultimately responsible for the user experience.
