Yes, same here. Ever since the YouTube app came out, when playing a video, it may or may not hang when playing a video. YouTube app still functions but seems as if it is not catching the stream from YouTube. The YouTube app runs because it can be exited. It does not lockup the YouTube app as it still functions and can be exited. You can also see the 'wheel' spinning as if it's waiting for data from YouTube.
It does not lockup my PS3. I think people that think it's their PS3 are doing damage to their units themselves possibly by doing a forced shutdown. People, the problem is in the YouTube app and how it gets the stream from YouTube, not in the PS3. If you shut down your PS2, abnormal, forced, etc you'll do more damage. Just wait and be patient for the YouTube app to timeout and you'll have control againn.

The app (in terms of video quality) is pretty good and I've had it freeze once and it is much faster just to watch a Youtube video on my computer but now I'm having a problem where I have to activate my account each time I want to sign in on the ps3.

The next time it happens DO NOT login but quit the app and go to PS3 save data and delete the You tube save file.

Then go to https://accounts.google.com/b/0/IssuedAuthSubTokens?hl=en on PC.

See if  "YouTube Leanback — YouTube " is listed as a allowed app. 

Now load the PS3 APP and login. Now go back to  https://accounts.google.com/b/0/IssuedAuthSubTokens?hl=en and see if you tube has shown up. Quit the app and see if the application gets deleted. If it does its googles server thats deleted the access.

which means you can't do any thing your end... Leave feed back on the Googles feed back link...

Mine tells me to register my device in order to watch. I register it and it reloads to the same message, never letting me past the activation, never allowing me to watch a video.
