Youtube has worked fine for years but stopped working this afternoon. I've tried every fix in this thread to no luck. All other channels work fine. Youtube starts loading and then crashes back to the home screen.
I've tried many variations of resetting and installing and uninstalling and even a factory reset but YouTube starts loading and then crashes back to the home screen. Preceding the problem today, I left the YouTube app up and paused, which I don't think I ever did before (I normally return to the home screen when I am not going to continue watching immediately); hours later when I tried to resume watching the home screen was displayed (not YouTube like I was expecting) and when I tried to re-enter YouTube it crashed back to the home screen for the first time); leaving YouTube up may not be related to the problem but just in case I thought I'd mention it.
Same issue. I try to log in, and it kicks me back to the home screen. I have tried most of the steps from the previous page, but none worked. The only one I haven't tried yet I am putting off till tomorrow. It's too close to bedtime to blow my top again.
I have tried ALL the suggestions in this forum and NOTHING HAS WORKED. I cannot load YouTube. YouTube is mostly what I use Roku for. If I can't get YouTube to work with my Roku, I will look for alternatives. Signed, frustrated Roku customer.
