haven't seen your issue; all video's I've pulled up on my phone have played on the PS3 as expected; my problem right now is that the video's start stuttering badly, like major lag is happening. I don't see this when playing the same video's on my PC or phone.

i don't understand all these problems people say they are having,i installed the app a few hours ago and have watched many videos without absolutely any issues whatsoever and i exited it many times to see if i would get the 3 beeps/reset issue,never happened and works great on my old fatty..i love it and it's about time..

I have the same issue on my slim. I can choose a video and play it but when I choose another video it just keeps playing the first video like its stuck on that one. It doesn't matter if I use my phone or the PS3 controller, I get the same results. I hope they fix this soon.

This **bleep** freezes and skips worse then a scratched CD in the pinche 1990's WTH! They need to let you adjust the quality of the video

Not to sound pretentious, but I think I was among the first to download this app and I have toyed with it extensively. As such, I have to say that this app isn't stumbling out of the gate on account it has broken legs. The app has crashed my PS3 three times so far, there is no keyboard support, and the Dualshock controls seem to change every time I use it. After I installed the app, I quickly went to sign in so I could get to my subscriptions because, as you may know, XL won't let you get to your subscriptions. I was confronted with a screen that told me to go to youtube.com/activate and enter the code displayed. Well, I did that; several times. Every time I did it, I went back into the app and was brought to the same prompt, albeit with a different code. I did use the browser on the PS3 to enter the code, however, and you may need to enter it on a different computer or smartphone; I haven't tried this method yet.

What you need to is stay on your  screen on the ps3 youtube app about the signing in part with the activation code. Now since I have only one internet modem and no wireless internet It will be impossible for me to go to my computer and go back to the app via ethernet cable it doesn't work that way. What I did was go on my cell phone internet browser put the code in and bam there you go This is the method I suggest you do as well.

So far I am having quite a few problems with the app itself.
1. Youtube app on ps3 froze on me(Had to restart the ps3)
2. I'm getting slow buffering on sd and hd videos(I have a good internet connection I stream perfectly on youtube xl and crackle as well.)
3. Seems to be a couple of glitches where some videos won't play or be stuck when you try to play a different one also.
