I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue.

Have you tried to uninstall and then re-install the App to see if that helps?

Also, are you attempting to connect in the 50 U.S. states?

Youtube app not working properly
by linoiseedassery / June 7, 2011 12:23 PM PDT

The youtube app on my TV UN46D6050 is not working as I expected. When I click on the icon it plays a random video(most of the time content is inappropriate) and no way to pause this. Also not able login to my youtube account. Talked to samsung customer rep and was told that this is the youtube app for this year and its like that and for problems with youtube contact Youtube. This app is not good, Very disappointed. expected more from Youtube.

youtube app

I love my samsung led 3d TV! but I have to say the youtube app is an disappointment. Simply not practical to use.
1. I tried to see if remote android app on my cellphone allows text entry for this , it dosen't.<div>2. Tried youtube remote (leanback), should work if the tv and cellphone are logged into same youtube account - would be perfect solution, because the app is good. But unfortunately cannot login to youtube on my samsung smart tv. <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> ue40d6100. I can login to my samsung account, but under serices I don't get youtube only facebook, blinkbox etc. Is there a way to add youtube on there? I have re-installed youtube app etc. Also got the latest firmware from nov,2011.

<span>Also are there any other generic tv appstores on the net, if so how do I get them on my tv? Some of the tv apps that I see on the samsung website is not available when I browse through tv. I don't have a browser app in my samsung store..

I am also getting the same error "authentication failed due to network failure. try again later". I am not even able to delete the youtube app to install it again as the delete option is grayed out.

youtube app does not work on my UN55D7000
by tarunbk / June 9, 2012 11:05 PM PDT

The app launches and displays the youtube logo - but nothing works. I cannot even browser videos, etc.
the only thing I can do is quit the app.

absolutely useless and heavy disappointment - no youtube videos.
trying to use the browser did not work either as the browser would crash often while watching a video.
