What is the effect of the having this 2-way-verification enabled? I don't want to provide any phone number. Any workaround or cheat for this??
(1.) I tried the YouTube name form the account information (case sensitive!!): no success
(2.) I tried the the YouTube-User-ID (case sensitive!!) from the advaned account information: no success
(3.) I even created a channel that I don't wnat: no success
Sometimes I get "wrong username or password", sometimes I get "you cannot login wirh this account"
I run an Apple TV 2 with software release 6.0.1, connected via wlan (5GHz) to the latest Apple AirPort Extreme (late 2013).
Before finding this post, I posted my own question.
However, what you described, is EXACTLY what is happening to me.
I tried all 5 of my youtube accounts and cannot connect with any of them.
I even removed all of the double encryption and just added a simple password to test it.
I've never had a problem before.
Did you ever get this resolved?
I just bought my ATV yesterday and have had zero luck logging into my YouTube account AND my iTunes account. I have followed the directions for the 2-step authentication and tried each of the logins listed on my YouTube account online. I keep getting the message that my account can't be used for Apple TV.
Now I've tried a software update and no luck! Has anyone tried anything else that has helped besides the 2-step auth and an update?
You only HAVE to do the 2-step verification if you have your google account set up that way.
If you set it up that was specifically to sign in on your Apple TV, then you did not need to.
As I said above, I was not able to log in to ANY of my accounts for weeks. But when I did the most recent update (then restarted the ATV), I just happened to check the Youtube App and everything was fine.
I was able to log in to my account with no trouble. And have been able to do so since the update.
Try restarting your ATV.
