Follow this link to the FAQ for the work around




HI Caira,


I followed the below instruction to get it working, i switched form Mobile version to Desktop version and youtube started working again(it is a bit slower on the desktop version but atleast it gets the job done now)


Currently, some YouTube videos are not working when played on the Family Hub display. We have contacted Google and will issue a fix as soon as possible.


If some music is not playing from the YouTube site, please play it in desktop mode instead.

1Open the Internet app on your Family Hub display
2Open the YouTube site
3Tap the user icon in the top right of the display
4Tap Desktop

Restart the family hub.  Go to Settings and about family hub.

I have the same issue. Got my refrigerator in April and YouTube vids worked fine til 1 or 2 months ago. The error says the browser won't be supported soon and to install one that supports HTML5 (i.e. - Forefox, Chrome, etc) But I can't install any other browser on the hub.


Same Issue here..  2020 Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator already has outdated technology   NO HTML5 support.  why is that?
