Will YouTube Support Continue in the WD TV LIVE


#1

Hello,

I am curious if YouTube support will continue with the WD TV LIVE? Apparently, YouTube/Google has demanded that other companies such as Popcorn Hour remove YouTube access from their machines. I purchased the WDTV LIVE a few weeks ago and currently have firmware version 1.01.11 and I am not able to access any of the YouTube functionality.

Could someone from Western Digital please comment on the status of YouTube implementation current/future on the WD TV LIVE.

Thank you,

The main reason I purchased WD TV live is because of youtube videos. Please let us know if you will continue support. I do not mind small ads before every video if it has to be that way !

I wanted to mention that I am able to search & view youTube videos. What I am NOT able to do is signin to my account . I have the same version of firmware. I hope you are connected to the internet either wired or wireless. I have ethernet hooked up.

Are you using your Youtube username? Please note that gmail username doesn’t work in WDTVLive.

I am using my gmail username. I will create one in youtube and see if the account signin works. Right now the box reboots if I signin.

Also I would like to see if someone can WD can assure that we will continue to have youTube on the Live. Otherwise I want to return it and get a netgear player. Please look at the following URL.
