    This is starting to sound like a broken record, but I have the same problem. Can't add favorites, can't view subscriptions. Is this account-specific? i.e. If you create a new YouTube account and log in to it from the TV, does the problem persist? I'd try but I don't have any time in the next couple of days.

    I really hope Apple acknowledges this problem and fixes it.

    I still get the same Subscriptions error. I have lots of YouTube Subscriptions, but I can't view the list of them on my Apple TV.

    ""No content was found. There is a problem communicating with YouTube. Try again later."

    A few days ago, when trying to watch YouTube on my AppleTV, I only got the response "No Content. Something wrong with the YouTube connection. Try again later." - When I log in to my two youtube accounts, it looks like the login is accepted, but still, the same message shows up all the time. I restarted the ATV and then downloaded the latest OS, but it didn't cure the problem.

    I am also experiencing this problem. Whenever I try to view favorites or subscriptions I receive the message: "No content was found. There is a problem communicating with YouTube. Try again later."

    Rebooting, removing the Youtube account and re-adding it, and updating to the latest Apple TV software released in Nov 2008 do not fix the issue.

    This question should not be marked as answered.

    I cannot view subscriptions or favorites either. New AppleTV just installed in the last few days.

    This is a problem for me too. I've only had the Apple TV for 2 days. First day, everything worked fine after the 2.3 update. Second day, YouTube gives me the "No content was found" error. That, and purchased iTunes content won't play on Apple TV, saying it's not authorized. Are these problems linked somehow? Internet access is not the issue.

    Have you found a solution to your problem. I got the apple tv today and firts thing i done was trying Youtube. First it did not work then I updated to 2.3 and tried it it was working, I got excited but the next time I turned on the apple tv YouTube again wasn't working. Anyone found a solution
    Thanks for your time

    it is definitively linked to a server issue i guess.
  • Rearden Steel Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I have the exact same problem. My favorites and my subscriptions on YouTube do not work on ATV though I am logged in. I have experienced no other network issues and I can search and view videos on YouTube otherwise.

    is this thread itself also broken? the header for this thread states that there are 2 "helpful" answers and one working "solved" answer. where? none of these comments are marked, and the vast majority of them are pretty much "ditto."

    the "solutions" that are presented here appear to work briefly, and then the problem reverts? has anyone experienced a fix to this, or is it fair to say, "your product doesn't work, apple. fix it."

    i love this product otherwise and am very frustrated that this "functionality" is not functional.

    Check out the hints here

    This part fixed my problem:
    4. Okay. So you're logged in. You can search. You can find stuff. You can view history, etc. But you still can't see your favourites and subscriptions? It gives you an error? Trust me. This problem was wracking my brain for months. This is how you fix it. Open up your desktop web browser (Safari, Firefox, etc) and log into YouTube.com using your YouTube account. Once logged in, in the top right next to your username click on 'Account'. Once there, click on the 'Privacy' link to edit your privacy settings. Now here is where the weirdness comes in. Under the 'Recent Activity', uncheck all the options and hit save. Then go back and check off, at least, both 'Favorite a video' and 'Subscribe to a channel'. Hit save and exit your browser. Restart your Apple TV for good measure and log into YouTube again on your Apple TV. You should now be able to see your favourites and subscriptions. If at anytime you find this method fails, load up the browser again and repeat this process. It should 'reset' whatever the ** the Apple TV does to screw it up in the first place.

    It appears the Apple TV checks your public settings rather than actually using your account. Your account is only used for verification purposes, otherwise it is in no way really tied to your account. This is proved when resolving the last step as well as not being able to view your browser-based history or recent searches. The Apple TV YouTube interface is simply a front end much like the app found on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
