Very dissappointing from Samsung. We are using Samsung devices but we will not use these products anymore, also, I will tell others not to use them. I do not think this is even legal! Shame on Samsung!
What model TV do you have? It sounds like the app developer (YouTube/Google) has decided to no longer support that model with that app.
I have a visio, became disabled barely make enough to survive but my biggest enjoyment is watching my videos. I am hoping someone may know an affordable way to get from my phone or computer to my TV. Have tried to ask you tube. IDK, t says can have a free trial of you tube red but all I want is my videos if I can work out the cost after free trial am willing to do without something else, with advanced Copd many limitations and need eye surgery, hearing not the best lol trying to help anyone willing or able to give me some ideas why this is so important to me. It distracts my mind in such a positive way and I so need that. Have a blessed day
Cool. So if Samsung sends me one free of charge I won't need to take the matter further. As long as I can watch You Tube without having to purchase a new TV, I am content.
No chance of that since it is a Google product. Samsung would only push their own products, which means you will be told sorry, you'll need a new TV. But after all of that fighting back and forth with them, I recommend you try a Chromecast to avoid the situation in the future.
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.
