Hi there,

Can you try signing out and signing back in again?

Thanks,

Hi. Yes I already did it, but it doesnt help..
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? ytDangler 1/26/12 6:48 PM
I'd like to see what version of the app you're running. I just need you to take a look at this Help Center article, which will show you how to get help for this:

http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2423483

If you are running the supported version of the app, can you send me the model of your TV?

Thanks,

Hi, I do experience similar problem on my UE46D5500 TV. After I sign in to Youtube (I can see my Youtube user name in right upper corner of Youtube App.), I can not access my 'Favourites'. Whenever I go to favourites I get following message: "A problem occured while trying to connect to Youtube". However I still can browse and watch the videos on the youtube. I just can not access my account. Any thoughts? Thanks, tmk
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? ytDangler 2/12/12 11:24 AM
tmk_k - Are you able to access any other features of the app?

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? tmk_k 2/14/12 5:07 AM
Yes I can. I just can not access my YouTube "Favourites" Other weird thing is, that if I add some video to my Favourites on TV, it really shows up in my account. I can check it on PC. However I can not access it on TV.
This makes the Samsung Youtube application completely useless :(

Hi All,

I can confirm this is an issue, i believe the application was updated not too long ago as now i note that the keyboard on the screen for entry guesses the next letter you were going to press (it did not used to do this). Previously on the "My Youtube" tab there would be your playlists listed there, they are now gone and all you have is the "Sign Out" option and nothing else.

This was definitely caused by an update of some kind, previously it worked correctly. My TV is UE40D6510. This is quite tedious as it is something that previously worked correctly and was a piece of functionality that i made a lot of use of.

It looks like the issue above described the the owner of the UE46D5500 could be a seperate issue to this (but possibly with the same route cause?) as there is just no way to access your own favourates or playlists on my TV anymore as it was not a seperate menu option, just a box under the "My Youtube" tab exactly as the 6530 user describes.

Thanks a lot, let me know if i can help any further.

I have a Samsung D5500 and find that I have to go through the YouTube activate steps every time I want to view my YouTube playlists.  Shouldn't the activation need to be done once only?
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? ytDangler 4/11/12 10:33 AM
Hey everyone,

We're currently working with Samsung to get to the root of the issue. Once we figure out what's going on, I'll update this thread.

I have the sameproblem with my smart tv on my samsung blu ray player. Now my you tube videos only have audio and still cannot access my favorites
Any help would be great
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? messenjah11 4/28/12 12:04 PM
Hello I think I have the same problem, I am using the Youtube app on my Samsung Bluray disc player HT-D5100. What I have experieced is that after Singning in, if I go to My Youtube tab there is only 'Sign Out' options BUT (this is the strange thing) SOMETIMES I can see another option for a couple of seconds (maybe less) that says 'playlists - favorites' but I can't click on that, because it will disappear very quickly!! It's just frustating, this should be fixed.. otherwise there's not point in signing in or out..
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? godsdragonslayr 4/28/12 3:26 PM
I hope someone figures this out as mine says, turn on the blue-ray player for updates and it never updates the YouTube application.
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? ytDangler 5/2/12 12:37 PM
godsgragonslayr - When you open up the YouTube app, does the home page look exactly like this?

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? MrMason 5/12/12 12:16 AM
I have the same error on my UE40C9705.
It seems to have something to do with my account?
When I try to use my ordinary account in youtube which is linked to my google-account, I get the same error as everyone else in this thread.
When I create an youtube account that is not linked to any google-account it seems to work fine. Then I can add videos to Favorites and then they also appear under Favorites on my tv.
Maybe this helps with "finding the error"...?
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? messenjah11 5/20/12 9:59 AM
Apparently something recently changed. I am able to see my playlists on the application when I sign in, but not all videos can be reproduced.. it says something like "This video is not available. Next video will start in X seconds..", and this happens to me with 50% of my videos aprox.
Have any ideas??? Thanks.
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? madman62 6/8/12 4:28 PM
I have a 6300 series and also now have this problem. I did go to the link you posted and asked if the home page looked like the screen shot. Mine does not as the settings tab under featured does not exist for me. I also notice that if I am at my youtube it mainly shows the sign out and pair option but will briefly flash the my playlists, my uploads, etc. every couple of minutes.
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? madman62 7/12/12 10:48 AM
Hi-

I am just following up on this issue as I have not seen any new posts and the problem has yet to be fixed. Is there any progress report to be shared? Would appreciate an update so I can be accurate in giving my review of the Samsung Smart TV experience.

Thanks!

Wow, cannot believe this issue is so prevalent and that the techs cannot figure this out since the beginning of the year. We are not getting what we pay for!

Mine does- exactly the same, and I have all the same issues and more.

I'm having a heck of a time with navigation.  Using the youtube for TV samsung app., how can I see a list of the videos I watched... say, the last 10 videos I watched?

I paused a video to answer the door and when I had come back, the cat had stepped on the remote somehow backing me out of the video I was watching and to a totally different screen.  I was really interested in what I was watching, but after a lengthy search, never found it again.

Isn't there a way to see what you've watched recently?

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? madman62 7/24/12 8:39 AM
Hi,

As of the other day, the problems I was having seem to have been fixed. I saw that I had signed out of my You Tube app account and went through the procedure to link my account to the app and sign back in and now my account and information is appearing.

Thanks for working on this, but I am surprised at the length of time it took.

I saw a news note recently that Samsung is really concentrating on its Smart TV feature. I do like some of the features but it could be so much better. For me a huge negative is that the browser does not support the newest Flash Player and quite honestly, that the browser is so poor. If Samsung is really committed to developing the Smart TV then these items, and keeping up with enhancements also needs to be a priority.

Thanks,

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? LOB1 7/24/12 10:44 AM
Does that mean you can view your favorites on the Youtube app?
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? madman62 7/25/12 8:13 AM
Hi-

Might be that my earlier post was a bit premature. Yes, I can view my favorites
BUT the YouTube app is now making me link my account every time I open the app.
Previously I would stay linked unless I signed out.

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? hkbs 7/27/12 2:02 AM
I have just bought a Samsung Smart tv which has the YouTube on TV app.

When I open it and want to sign in, I get the message to go to youtube.com/activate and enter the code which is shown on the screen.

If I then close the app and go to the web browser, I enter youtube.com/activate but get nowhere that I can enter the code.

Can anyone help, please?

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? poisike 7/27/12 2:14 AM
Hi hkbs,

Don't close the Youtube on TV app, you have to have it open when you access youtube.com/activate on another device (PC, Smartphone). Hope this helps.

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? malils 8/17/12 5:24 AM
My YouTube app has been doing this same thing for the past month or two. It drives me nuts. It was always connected before but then something must have changed. Now everytime I shut off the TV and open the YouTube app again, I have to re-activate it by logging on to youtube from my computer.

I am having exactly the same issue. I see my playlist, but the videos don't play. Same error message as Messenjah gets.

Has this been fixed ?  Does anyone have a solution ?

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? smallchange7 9/14/12 1:16 AM
I think I had this same problem on my TV when I first got it. I fixed it by going to the menu-->System-->Time-->Clock and messing with the clock settings. I have the Clock Mode set to Auto. I'm pretty sure this is what fixed my logins, since some of these apps require specific clock settings.

I hope this was helpful!

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Wallybomber6 9/19/12 11:52 AM
I bought my tv a couple days ago and am having very similar issues as the ones described in this thread. I signed out and was going to sign in again to see if the problem was fixed but now it's frozen on the screen asking me to wait while it processes my request. Even if I shut the tv off and turn it back on it will freeze on this screen. Any advice?

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? satyaSarika 10/10/12 2:40 PM
For samsung UN55es7150

Once you get the 'processing request message', there is no way to get the code to activate.  The TV just sits there like a DUMB TV!!!  It is very frustrating.

However, there is a workaround.  If you have a mobile device that you can pair with the TV, you can log into the My YouTube on that device, then use the mobile device (smartphone Galaxy S2 in my case) to control the TV as though you were logged into the My YouTube on the TV directly.

Even this workaround is problematic, in that the pairing doesn't stay connected indefinitely.  However, it's better than nothing.

Hello,

I have an UE32D6500 with software versionL T-GASDEUC-1012.2.
I have some issues with the youtube app, version: 1.012.
When I try to view some (most of them) videos from my favorites, I get an error saying that 'video is not available, the next video will start in 5 seconds...'
Why, and what can I do?

Thanks,

Andrei

Hi Satya, did you find/get any resolution for these issues, I have UN46ES6500 running with same issues...unable to sign in youtube, when I click on sign-in I see the message"Please wait while the system is processing your request" and keeps buffering ...I have let it for more than 30 minutes many times...still no luck....
Also, with pairing it never remembers the activation, need to activate every time which is disgusting...Please let me know, if you have any better options or solutions.

I have the same issue and bought Samsung UN46ES6150 model just a few days ago. Youtube will not allow me to sign in. When I try to access my account, it says "Please wait while the system is processing your request" cannot pass this screen to do anything. I'm able to search for videos and pair my galaxy phone to youtube but I'm really disappointed that I can't sign to view my playlist. I have reset MY smart hub and also reinstalled youtube but still no result.  

Smart Hub Version: 4.5101-5.0
Youtube Version: 1.066
Software Version: 001024

Can someone please help?..

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Arun007 11/27/12 9:20 AM
Hi InvaderStyle,

I am also having the same model, after opening the YouTube app, try sign-in immediately. Dont click search or any other option, just try sing-in in first attempt. This is the workaround I am doing until it is get fixed by Google.

Please let me know, is the videos are playing continuously. Because even though if I play the playlist it is not playing the videos continuously. I have to manually select the videos all the time.

Model : UN40ES6150

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Arun007 11/27/12 9:21 AM
Yes it is a known issue, please see this thread for workaround to sign-in.
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? InvaderStyle 11/27/12 8:52 PM
I changed the clock settings to auto and also updated my time on the TV which was incorrect. This worked and I was able to log into my youtube account. Videos aren't playing continuosly after one from my playlist which doesn't bother me but the issue that I am currently having is something totally new. Everytime I access youtube from smarthub all the icons goes very dim and once I am in youtube, then the videos are playing the same way with very minimun color. Matter of fact everything in youtube stays with grayed out. Does anyone know what I should do now? Thanks.
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Xiang He 11/28/12 11:26 PM
I had the same problem, log out, then can't log in the youtube app.
Here is a workaround I found on the web:
I went to the security setting on my google account on my pc, and revoke access of youtube there.
Then next time i open the youtube app on my tv, it asks me to input the activation code on www.youtube.com/activate, after which i was able to log in.

shame on the app developer for missing such a serious bug!

I have a Samsung blu ray player BD-D6500-ZA and for about a week now my youtube app has stopped working. Everything else like Netflix and vudu works fine but my youtube is not working, it will open up and shows me the tabs on te left but I noticed te videos show 00:00:00 long and there are two Iván play which are located in the most viewed tab and they open but they're Messed up because the screen becomes tiny and I have two screens showing the same video. When I try searching for a video it automatically tells me right away "could not find" but it doesn't even look for it, no matter what I search it can't find anything. I can't log in because I don't see a tab to log in and when I play the videos from the history tab it tells me the server has been disconnected! I hope someone can help me! I am going crazy with this issue!!
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Qi Jin 9/18/13 11:49 AM
I have a Samsung Smart TV I got 2 years. There is a recent YouTube app upgrade which I had to do a couple of days back. After I upgraded, I couldn't find a place to add my YouTube account information. I used to set it in AppManager. When I logged on to my app account on the TV, I am automatically logged on to YouTube. But AppManager after upgrade only allows me to set the username and password for picassa but not YouTube any more. I can't access my playlist and my favorite videos on TV any more. It is really annoying. This used to work very well. Any idea why? Thanks a bunch!

I have Samsung smart TV model UN55C8000FX model.  I was using YouTube app in this tv and was able to login to my google/youtube account and access my favorites and play directly.  But for the last few months i am not able to see the Favorites tab itself even after i login to my account.  I tried to master reset the TV, uninstalled and reinstalled the YouTube app, firmware update etc. but not able to get my favorites onto the TV.  Anybody has any solution to this problem?

Though i can still search and play the videos its very inconvenient to use.  Without favorites its no use of the app.   Any help is highly appreciated.

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? i am having the same problem Michael Amstadt 11/19/13 2:08 PM
I had the same problem since I switched to Google + 3 days ago .
with my Samsung Smart Tv .
Couldn't access my Youtube subscriptions , the watch later was always empty , and couldn't access playlists or favorites .
The problem is with Google + .
Solution ...
Sign out of your account on your tv .
Go to your youtube channel on your pc
click account settings ....select overview ,
choose regular youtube channel without google + and confirm .
Your youtube should return to its old format .

Then sign in on your tv , by entering the code shown to
https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/device/usercode
with your pc .
Your Youtube channel should return to its normal settings on your tv .

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? i am having the same problem Morten Nielsen 11/23/13 12:11 PM
I can confirm Michael Amstadt's posting.

Samsung UE46F8005 here, firmware 1112.6, Youtube app 1.002. Some weeks ago favourites and subscriptions disappeared from the app, even though I was still logged in. Reinstalling, logging out etc didn't help. But disconnecting Youtube and Google+ as per Michael's instructions solved the problem instantaneously.

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Matthew Houston 12/8/13 2:40 PM
Same problem,  I can login no worries and can view videos etc but every time (seemingly) the TV is shut off I have to re-activate.

Model is a new F8500.

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? neeta.b 12/8/13 5:19 PM
I still have the same problem on my Samsung TV model # UN55C8000FX.  In fact i can't even find the YouTube app in the 'Setup App Account' window.  How can i sign into my youtube account without finding it there?  The app is installed and i can only search and watch.  Not my favorites and play lists though.  This is really painful.  This problem persists for the last several months.  Did not expect this problem to remain like this for this long.  Even samsung technical rep could not help to figure out the problem.
If anybody knows the solution, please share here.
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? i am having the same problem Morten Nielsen 12/11/13 5:38 AM
Youtube keeps bugging me for a fusion of my Youtube and Google+ account, which when it cannot be avoided anymore will mean the Samsung Youtube app loses my credentials as described by Michael Amstadt. Any news on a fix for this?
Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? Dawn Harding 1/24/14 6:35 PM
I have a samsung blue ray player and it allowed me to sign in and pair my iPad about a month ago. Now when I revisited the samsung youtube app for the first time in since then there is NO WAY to sign in to the youtube app. That is so stupid. What gives? I can't play my iPad over the tv now and instead have to type with that ridiculous remote texty thing.  Google needs to get with Samsung and work this out because it makes them both look bad.

Make a sign in option on the TV app! If you can't sign in then you can't go to settings...If you can't go to settings then you cannot Pair devices!

Re: Why can't I access to my youtube account in Samsung Smart TV app? jodi.s 2/9/14 4:05 PM
I have the same question. YouTube used to be connected, but I've now spent hours trying to figure out how to login. If there's no login, is there a way to link like the way Netflix and Pandora work?

How about an app? Is there an iPad app that will control it?

BTW: mine is a Blu Ray with Smart Hub - model 5700, I think.

It's because each smart tv has it's own code for apps. You need to find that by going to YouTube and go to sign in or pairing

Thank you for the advice - I thought perhaps it was something like that but could find no information. Your message prompted me to dig a bit more and I found this: https://www.youtube.com/pair

However, that's of no help to me since my issue is not with a Smart TV or game console, but a Blu Ray player. There is no option for settings or pairing with the YouTube app that I can find. There used to be a way to log in with your username and password, but it seems to no longer be there.

Pairing with Netflix and Pandora have worked seamlessly - but I cannot find a way to do it with YouTube.
