Personal YouTube Content

I have firmware version 1.01.12. for WD TV Live.

 

When I try to play my videos from "YouTube" account, system is getting rebooted and I can not see content from "YouTube".

 

Is there any solution / fix for this issue?

Re: Personal YouTube Content

I opened my new WD TV live yesterday that was shipped by Amazon and hooked it in. I was prompted for a new firmware and I installed it.

 

First thing I went to check was youtube and I could not signin to my account. It keeps re-booting irrespective of the three options it provides after typing in the  username and password. Can I get a fix for this problem. One of the main reasons I purchased WD TV live is because I wanted to watch youtube on my TV without the need of a laptop. Just wanted to mention that I was able to do a search and watch youtube content.

Hi, it happens also for me - when I try to go in to my YouTube account, box reboots and resets to factory defaults.

And today friend of mind has bought this small box, Netgear EVA2000:

Remote looks exactly the same. And this box has much more net-video functions, and, of course, you can log in to your YouTuve account

 

I started to feel quite big disappointment, because I already have this WD TV Live.

I'm plagued with the same problem. I have the latest firmware and my WDTV Live also reboots right after I type in my YouTube account info and sign in. I hope there'll be a workaround soon.

Re: Personal YouTube Content

Yup, same here.  Current firmware, Youtube works fine anonymous.  Try to use a private account and welcome to reboot land.

 

Thankfully I have Playon installed and my personal account runs fine from there.  Strangely it never asked for my password.  Perhaps Youtube has changed its access rules and WD hasn't met the change.

Re: Personal YouTube Content

I have the same problem.

Until Friday 12/11, I could access my account without any problems.

On Satuday morning: reboots on my account access:smileysad:

I have not changed the Firmware in this time. Very strange. Has Youtube changed something?

Re: Personal YouTube Content

Has anyone heard from WD on this issue?  Last time I was on this forum I noted that an administrator was logging in to reply to each issue in a timely fashion.  This silence does not bode well.  They obviously know there is a problem.  Are they being silent because there's a legal dispute with youtube or is it because there's a major bug they don't know how to fix yet?
