I can't log into the YouTube app although I CAN login to YouTube.Com.  I even deleted my previous YouTube/gMail account but to no avail.  

 

What's going on?

iPad 2, iOS 5.1

    Not sure. What is the error message provided?

     

    Have you contacted Google customer/techical support?

    The YouTube app is not an 100% Apple product. Google had plenty of participation with the app.

     

    The login with the app is being confirmed or denied by Google.

     

    Have you tried powering your iPhone off and on and/or tried a reset to see if this makes any difference?

    You have to understand the  "GOOGLE CS" was just some person that managed to get a job one rung higher than the person that cold calls you to sell insurance.

     

    I am constantly surprised by the number of people that give the call centre operatives the status of "Google says..."

    Gosh. I've never been accused of anything with such posh words before. I feel quite proud now....

     

    Is "editorializing" actually a word? I'd like to use it again if it is.

    Same sort of answer as the first one but just subscribe to something on YouTube on your computer then the app lets you in.

    Instead of creating a new account you can do it like this: (it's stupid but you only have to do it once)

     

    Sign into YouTube (desktop site)

    Account- settings- security

    Turn on 2 step verification (they send a code to your phone)

    Enter the code

    You will then be prompted to generate a password for the YouTube app ( if not you can find it in settings)

    SIgn into the app using your username and the generated password..

    It should work!
