New YouTube app for Windows Phone running into problems
On Tuesday, we told you how Windows Phone 7.8 and Windows Phone 8 users now had an official YouTube app that was apparently acceptable to both Google and Microsoft. On Tuesday, Windows Phone users were celebrating the new app. On Wednesday, some users trying to use the new YouTube app received the "Something happened and we’re not sure what" error message.

One analysis of the situation shows that the app was using a revoked developer key. Either Microsoft failed to update it when they revamped the app to meet Google's requirements, or for one reason or another, Google has revoked the key. One possibility is that both tech titans never actually signed off on the revamped app. Or perhaps Google just made some changes to YouTube that need to be picked up on by Microsoft.

Considering that third party YouTube app MyTube is also having similar problems, it is beginning to look like Google is responsible for the problems with its streaming video app. Certainly the truth will come out and set somebody free.

Not WP's fault (well not directly anyway), but it's still a fault nonetheless. Lack of such basic quality apps is such a dealbreaker.

Google is clearly the one who caused the problem. If anyone sucks, it's Google.

Ask M$ to lay off their lawsuits against Google and Motorola first.
Sue Google still want a free ride from Google.

Just when WP users got to see the light at the end of the tunnel, they get this. The wait for the app was bad enough, and Google may have just put them on the waiting list all over again. Idk what I'd do without YouTube..

m.youtube.com works just as well

or... heres a thought... turn the browser to desktop and go towww.youtube.com

why use an app when you can get the real thing?
that is a serious question...

Boo! I never updated from the ad free version that allows me to do vids, never had a problem, and now this problem with the new app is affecting even my old version!

wonder if google pulled the rug out from under Microsoft and blocked the windows phone user agent. Hopefully this will fix on googles end so I don't have to update it...

PhoneArena is always againt WP. Just look at the caption ''New YouTube app for Windows Phone running into problems" and u just stated that a developer key have been revoked. So who revoked it? Isnt it Google?? please be accurate in sincere in your articles..

http://www.phonearena.com/user/mariosuneo4

the estimated mobile phone usage is about 6800million yet of that only 2000million have smartphones... 80% of that number is 1600million so that is the number of people estimated to be using android.... not trillions and trillions

are you twelve?

that is only 23% of global phone use

and even if wp had 1% of gloobal smartphone use that is over 20million people using wp... since it is at around 3% that amounts to 60million people

that is over 60million people that google are screwing over just to get ad money

does the math hurt your brain?

Is it me but you can still use YouTube thru your internet. The app just makes it more simple.
