Hey everyone! 

 

We just wanted to clarify that the decision is made with the app provider to no longer provide support to our TV's. We've done some digging around, and there are multiple devices this has affected.

 

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6098135?hl=en-GB

 

There are options to screen mirror and cast from other devices to your TV's, which we would welcome the Community to discuss and share tips.

Hi all,

 

As I said I would a few weeks ago, to update you on the review on Oldtube’s app:

 

The final decision on it is we’re afraid we’re unable recommend or endorse an app that has not been officially added to the Smart Hub.

 

However, we would like to say that we very much appreciate the effort made in this instance, and do encourage you guys to continue to discuss workable alternatives to view YouTube content on your older TVs.

 

Furthermore, just to add, this YouTube issue affects multiple devices across multiple brands for the exact same reasons – and with much the same response industry-wide. I’d like very much to keep this thread open so peeps can share more ideas, help and experiences with workarounds though.

This is irritating as hell. I spent nearly 800 bucks on a television and a few years later, I can't use my most used app?

C'mon Samsung... get your ***** together and FIX THIS.

This needs to be fixed asap. The reason I bought this tv was for the YouTube feature. Lawsuits are brewing. Come on Samsung, do the right thing!

Shame on you Samsung that you don't support YouTube any more. Now the smart TV is useless . Dispicable

It also happened to my Sony blueray player.

No more expensive not so smart gadgets for me. From now on its as cheap as possible and stick on a fire stick or similar. At least if that gets dated you can change it for a few quid.

We have 3 samsung smart tvs 2 of which no longer support YouTube. 

This is very frustrating as YouTube is or was the only app we used. What the hell is this about??? Is there going to be an update for the tvs so we can use YouTube again? If not we will no longer be buying samsung products. We have 4 samsung mobile devices a washing machine and dryer a fridge 3 tvs and a stereo.  Are you they going to make these so we can't use them also? Gutted!

For a tv to be a smart tv there are two important apps. The first is the SKYPE and the second app is the YOUTUBE. At the begining i had both apps, but then first SKYPE last year then last month YOUTUBE were shut down. No need to keep this tv in my house i will go and use my old tube tv.. what am i gonna do with this tv? All day i will look at weather forecast site? No thanks... i am very regretful to buy this tv and paid a lot of money......

The recent update does NOT restore YouTube, it finalizes YouTube's deletion.

I have a 65JS9000TXXU, 1 year old. I did not know why I have to unplug my TV every time when I want to use the youtube.... until now! One of the high end Samsung TVs.... I am so disappointing!

 

Dear Samsung,

 

I advertise my TV ASAP and swop it different manufacturer, never again Samsung!

 

Good luck for this brainless decision! Long live Youtube!

To his is OUTRAGEOUS:

 

Not only SAMSUNG DOES NOTHING TO HELP WITH THE PROBLEM, THEY ALSO REMOVE MY POSTS!

 

So they have the money to pay people to do nothing better than moderate here but they don't invest in their customers... nice...

Hi all. As per my message to Oldtube (and several others), I've removed the unauthorised solution Oldtube proposed, as it may harm a TV's wider operation.

Exactly how it could harm the TV? It is perfectly valid, and documented and publicly released by Samsung itself how to develop and install an app yourself. http://developer.samsung.com/tv/develop/legacy-platform-library/art00013/index

Removing the Youtube app harms the TV's operation!

@AntS seriously, there is nothing "unauthorized" here. Using the TV in dev mode and install your own app is a PERFECTLY VALID USE CASE DUDE!
