Question

Samsung Smart TV You Tube

Bought a new set with a very good Y/T app. It had numerous menus and playlists. I had a screen replacement and the engineers did a total update.
Now I have a poor version of Y/T. Tried asking Samsung Cust Care how to revert back to my original app. They tell me it can't be done but couldn't explain why not.
Anyone had a similar problem of knows how to rectify the problem.

Thx

Tony

Why.

The app is from Google and Google determines what apps go out. This system is nothing like your PC and choices you can make there. Those used to the freedom of choice are often stunned when it comes to appliances and now Windows 8 RT.

Sorry. How to fix.

You'll need some device that does what you want. When I want the full PC experience I attach my laptop. Most of the time I use a Kindle Fire HD over HDMI.

If Samsung doesn't write the app, they don't control it. They can remove it but if the app's owner wants it to be a certain way, it's the app owner's choice and not Samsung or ours to make.

Does this mean that Samsung can change my Youtube whenever they want. If I had not had my screen changed and the TV reset would they have still changed the way my Y/T worked. Totally unfair. I don't want my TV as a PC just the Y/T as and when I had the TV shown to me in the show room.

Google can change it when they want.

Sorry if I was unclear. Google now differentiates platforms and some are noticing that.

I see I did tell you how to fix that. Here's more about it. -> http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-579279/youtube-on-samsung-problem/

You do bring up a good point. Let's say this is a car and you buy it and the makers (yes, plural) change it. Now it's not the same car so I think you have a leg to stand on to demand your right to return it. It's not what you bought anymore.

Good thought there. I wonder who can take that to the court and maybe correct something that is bothering a lot of folk.
