Hi everyone,

Thanks for letting us know about the sign-in issues with Apple's pre-installed app. Instead of using your YouTube username, can you please try your Gmail address associated with your YouTube account? We'd like to see if entering this in will sign you in. We're keeping an eye out on this thread so feel free to post your results!

Thanks,
-ytDangler

Try your e-mail adress. YouTube does not allow log in with your YT username anymore, it has to be your Google username or your e-mail adress.

Neither my gmail, google account windows live email, or username are working. And I know my password is correct. Anybody else fixed it yet?
Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Haze01 4/11/13 8:55 PM
My google account is connected with a yahoo.ca e-mail address.  I've tried logging in with my YouTube user name and tried using my e-mail address.  I tried setting up my google account with the 2-step authentication after this but still had no success.
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app TJ Marchello 4/11/13 9:15 PM
I always login using my email and it hadn't been working for me, but now it does. Whatever changed is back to normal now. At least for me. Thanks for fixing this.
Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Haze01 4/11/13 9:57 PM
Since people have reported that it fixed itself today, I tried logging in again.  As I had set up the two-step verification I had to create one of those randomized passwords.  While this didn't work yesterday, it worked tonight.  I'm back to being logged-in on my phone with full access to favorites and subscriptions through the good old YouTube app.

This has been going on for two days with me and I'm still having trouble logging in. I've done everything I know to do! I've used my YT username, my hotmail address, AND my gmail; and I even changed my password and nothing is working!
Please help, what am I doing wrong?

This problem first came up a while ago for me. It fixed itself but now it's back again. I've created an aplication specific password, but even if I use the application specific password, it still doesn't work.
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app TJ Marchello 4/17/13 12:09 PM
Is it possible to just undo whatever was changed? Or did the problem just apperar out of nowhere?

Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Tyler9761 4/17/13 5:42 PM
For some reason YouTube decided to randomly sign me out on my phone. so i got to sign in with my password and username and it says that my info is wrong. i was like wtf my password is correct. now its not letting me sign in. someone needs to fix this.
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app yalex12 4/17/13 6:55 PM

Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Hapsys I 4/17/13 7:26 PM
While I didn't have the problem that popped up a few days ago, it is now proceeding to do the same thing to me. It kicked me off just this evening and then it is refusing to sign me back in even though I am using the gmail and password that sign me in on my computer. I cannot use the two-step verification because I do not have a mobile, just to give more information. Has there been a solution for this yet?
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Gma Cookie 4/17/13 7:33 PM
You Tube on my ipad signed me out and will not let me sign back in. I know the user name and password are correct and I have tried my email and username for google and this does not work either. Help!!

I use the Youtube app for Ipad. Just like others, today I was kicked out and every time I try to sign back in with my email account it rejects it.

Same here. I don't want to update to ios 6 on my iPhone 4, I don't want MORE ads!  I guess I'm upgrading to the iPhone 5 after all. Can we pay for YouTube service without ads?
Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app dymoman 4/17/13 8:53 PM
I've tried every possible combination and it still doesn't let me in. I launched YouTube on iOS 5 and it kicked me out after being logged in for months and said my password or user name are wrong. Afterwards, I tried google user name and password - no, google email and as sword - no, google user name and app specific password - no, google email and app specific password - no. What gives?!

"Instead of using your YouTube username, can you please try your Gmail address associated with your YouTube account? We'd like to see if entering this in will sign you in."

So this basically means Google has no clue on how to fix this and is telling its' users to try to find a fix for them. Classy.

I've tried all the suggested tips on how to fix this. NOTHING has worked. I don't have time to try to find a work around to make a now defective product work properly as it once did. I think the phrase "keep it simple stupid" definitely applies here. If I owned any Google stock currently, it would definitely be sold as soon as I could do so.

Signing in works fine on computer, in safari, in protube app and even in the downloaded youtube app. But I like the layout of the native ipad app! Please fix this.

It was fine yesterday and suddenly, today I was logged out of YouTube for no reason on both my iPhone and iPad. I knew my google account email and password. I tried changing password but no luck. Also tried the 2 steps thing but still can't log in too. I don't want to use the other YouTube app. I'm already used to this one.
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app YTJennie 4/18/13 11:42 AM
Thanks for these updates and your patience.  The team is actively investigating the cause of this issue. 

In the meantime, please try using m.youtube.com.


Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Alpha77 4/18/13 12:19 PM
YouTube should be YouTube regardless of platform. The pre-installed app shouldn't even be receiving modification should it? It should be left in the past the way it was with iOS 5 shouldn't it? What could have been tweaked or changed twice in less than a week to cause the exact same issue? How was it fixed six days ago? Step up, Jennie and YouTube team! Please fix this, put it back the way it was, and try not to mess with it again!

Pathetic. Same problem since last night.  When I try to sign in it shows "loading" prior to sign in.  Then authentication error. This should be a simple fix. Mobile site leaves a lot to be desired.  
Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app zeitgeistmovie.com 4/18/13 2:08 PM
The sign-in bug has returned as of April 18th. The built-in YouTube app signed me out and I cannot sign back in.

The sign-in bug that had started around April 10th and that was resolved around April 11th was solved on YouTube's end I'm guessing. For that one, I didn't have to use my Google Account email address as the username. I use 2-step authentication and was able to just generate another application password and use my YouTube username with it to sign-in.

I now cannot sign-in with any combination of either email address, username, application password, or account password. Please help. Thank you.

I am having the exact same issues and it started just now. it was fine earlier today but now i am getting authentication errors. i even tried turning off the phone and turning it back on. now... bupkis. i think google and youtube are trying to force us to use their new app, which is not bad but it's more complex with so many functions and options on a tiny iphone screen.

I have had this problem too. A few days ago it wouldn't allow me to sign in. Then suddenly I tried it and it worked. Then it started again yesterday night. I really hope it gets fixed soon. I am wondering if it has anything to do with the email connectivity thing at all. I have tried logging in with my email address as well, but with no results. If they are switching the way that mobile devices sign in to YT then they should state it clearly.
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Zangz1 4/18/13 5:45 PM

Noticed the problem last night while trying to log in via my blu-ray player app, then tried my pre-installed iphone app to no avail. Thought my password was wrong so I tried on my laptop but that way worked just fine. Issue seems to only be on app versions of the site if I can login perfectly from my laptop and the Google/YouTube respose is "try using the mobile site."

Broken for me. Using iPad 1. I came across a link in a forum when this happened last week and clicking that link worked, but now I can't remember what forum I found it in on the Internet. It had something to do with the app constantly logging in and out and causing the account to lock.

Still having the problems. Tried to log in on Thursday night (18/4), tells me "authentication failed". Checked my username and password - have tried so many times, and still get the same response. Can log in using other You Tube apps, and through website, just not the pre-installed You Tube apps on my iPad and iPhone.

Have tried with Google log in - no joy, same error message. Have tried creating a app specific password through google - didn't work either - same error message.

Still having this problem. Tried to log in on Thursday night (18/4), tells me "authentication failed". Checked my username and password - have tried so many times, and still get the same response. Can log in using other You Tube apps, and through website, just not the pre-installed You Tube apps on my iPad and iPhone.

It was fixed yesterday morning for me. See my answer above. Use your YouTube username (not Google Account email) and application specific password (revoke the old one and create a new one).

^Good luck with that. I just gave up. Why would I want to use a defective product anyway? If Google has these same issues for stuff like the self driving cars they are working on,then everyone will be in a car wreck.

Yeah I am trying to sign in with my gmail email or username and it says I do not have it linked to a you tube account. Then I went and logged in to YouTube using the browser without problem. But it does not help me watch YouTube in the application on my phone

YouTube signed me out and won't let me sign back in!
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app iamtigra 4/25/13 9:06 PM
Yeah, so, I can log in with an app. specific password, but I have to do it every time youtube can't connect and logs me out. I don't want to have to keep generating new passwords whenever I get logged out.

Help! It will not let me upload videos to YouTube on my iPhone 5. I've tried everything including deleting & reinstalling YouTube & nothing works. My login doesn't work, my password doesn't work & using the app specific password does not work. I need help & I need it fast to fix this problem.

Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app TheMIttyable . 5/10/13 5:39 PM
Still doesn't work. I've tried signing into with my hotmail and gmail. When  I tried to change my youtube email to gmail it said I can't use it for this account so that was a bust. I'm on iOS 4.2 I believe.

Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app Chel Read 5/12/13 8:00 PM
I have a google account and everything, but when I click on the Sign In button it redirects me to the main Youtube page. Is there some glitch that's going on with Youtube? or am I needing to do something with my computer? Thank you!
Re: Sign in issues with Apple's pre-installed YouTube app YTJennie 5/14/13 12:40 PM
Hi everyone,

Thanks for your recent reports.  This thread was originally tracking an older (now fixed) issue about signing in with the pre-installed YouTube iOS app. To help us understand your new issues better, please include the following information in your reports:
  • Where are you trying to sign in?  If you're on iOS, are you using the App Store version of the YouTube app?  If so, please see this thread for related questions.
  • Which device and OS are you using?
  • Can you sign in with the same account on other devices (Computer / m.youtube.com on your phone)? 
  • Did you recently merge your channel with a Google+ page?  If so, have you also switched back to your YouTube username?
  • Have you already tried the troubleshooting steps listed here?

Please see the YouTube Accounts topic for additional troubleshooting information. 

Thanks!
