PS3 blocks YouTube and YouTube XL...

30 replies 10166 views Edited Aug 16, 2012

I can't get to "Regular" YouTube or YouTube XL with my PS3. It will only take me to the YouTube app. I tried using old YouTube bookmarks and clicking on posted youtube videos to "Watch on Youtube". But all roads lead to the PS3 YouTube app. Is there any way around this. I want "Regular" YouTube back.

I'm having the same issue, unfortunately. I hope this is a temporary block to promote the new app. I'll edit this post if I make any headway.

If you go to youtube.com/t/terms you will bypass the app page and reach the terms of service page. From there, you can use the site as you would normally (log in, view your channel, search for videos, etc.).

Nope. Deleting the app did not help. "Regular" YouTube is better than the app. With the YouTube app you can't "Favorite" a video or read or write comments. There are some videos that you can't get on the app, even if you use the "Search" function. And the search function won't let you use a keyboard.

Thanks. It worked.

The corprate pricks at sony dont care about anybody's satisfaction. They are too busy counting their giant wads of cash to even take notice of this problem.

To restore access to standard site, including the ability to use external YT video links (on Google etc) and bookmarked videos, click View Standard Version link (opens in separate window). You may recognise this from XL home page.

 

Also, you might like to check out the PS3 Bookmarklet, which I introduced back in June 2010, as this now allows you to watch YT videos in 480p+ (although 720p is also selectable, you may well have issues with longer vids). This uses the ideal window configuration where you typically have a main YT window (YT home page, subs new videos, search results etc) and you load the videos in a separate window (use bookmarklet on both types of pages), so after watching the video you close the video window and this takes you back to the main window, where you can load another video (from search results etc). Always wait for page to fully load (animation in top right of screen disappears), before using bookmarklet. It also makes some other enhancements on the YT pages (Wikipedia too!), such as showing its rating indicator for new subs and search result videos (see Features page for full details). If you ever end up on dummy XL page (associated cookie lost), you can use bookmarklet to restore service (re-directs to page above). Enjoy Smiley Happy.

Sony Executives have A LOT on their plate..... They are responsible for BILLIONS of dollars and have to make decisions that are best for the company AS A WHOLE, to increase profit margins, keep investors and stock holders happy etc etc

 

If you want to point the finger..... point it at the person in charge of the Playstation brand itself.

 

 

You do know there is a "Chain of Command" right?
