Works fine for me The only problems that i have is that I cannot comment on a video and when I try to fast foward a vid , the whole app freezes and i have to restart the Ps3. It's kinda annoying -.-
Just curious, how did you fast forwarding? There may be other ways of doing it; I never had a problem but all I ever did was tap R2 to skip small chunks.
this youtube app is very annoying. i like to use youtube alot, but now i dont want to even mess with youtube anymore. its become to much of a hastle, it freezes all the time and i cant enjoy one single video without everything being choppy and distorted. i am very very disappointed in sony playstation for this as a loyal sony playstation customer! (since ps one) i always had alot of faith in their apps and additions, but now it seems like sony is getting kinda half A$$ and unreliable at times. i just hope they turn this around quick and start doing things with a little more concern for their PSN members instead of eliminating good options (youtube) and replacing them with crappy ones (youtube app).
The app works like crap on my machine, too. I have a fast internet connection, using WiFi, and I'm using a 160 GB Slim which is fully upgraded. I look at a video, any video, and it stutters in the exact way trying to emulate N64 or PS2 games on your computer would stutter if your system was not good enough. Worse, actually. It's not even like the streaming lag. This is literally 25% slower. And it does this immediately upon opening a video. I even tried pausing & starting to see if it'd help, but no. And then when I was rewinding, it completely froze so the PSHome is the only button that would work, and when I quit the app, it restarted my PS3 with 3 beeps (which scared the crap out of me. I thought I was about to have the light of death!)
This is very disappointing. The old YouTube may not have been ideal, but it had the most important function. The ability to play videos.
Yes, the youtube app is absolute garbage, I can't sign in, videos work GREAT... Errr except for the fact that after one video, I can't watch another, it just gets stuck on that video and it never changes..
SONY... Look, just let us use YoutubeXL AND the app, or just get rid of the app all together, because, honestly, signing in to PSN just to watch youtube is a bit ridiculous, when I don't want people to message me when I'm watching videos.
I hope this gets resolved. Sorry for the outburst.
Same problem here, Youtube PS3 app is choppy, it is not related to Youtube itself, not the internet connection and it occur with HD and Non HD videos, Short or Long, Fully buffered or not, also noticed that when the video start the choppiness the PS3 HDD LED starts to blink, as soon as this LED stop blinking the choppiness is gone.
It is a Internet problem USERs from out side the USA are able to run the app with out problems now due to the US RSS feed usage on PS3.
With footage of app in usage.... this is with a UK ISP 3000 miles way...
