Actually he was referring to YouTube.com/tv because it allows you to watch any YouTube video on PS4. In actuality, the PS3 YouTube app looks just like YouTube.com/TV. While an app would be preferred, everyone has had access to all of YouTube since day one of the PS4.

 


If you read his post a bit better he was telling me that it just needs to be simply ported over and not rebuilt. because all of the different ways to access YouTube look the same. Well yes they do look the same that is how most companies build thier apps to have continuity between devices. But they all still require completely different coding in order to build the apps. Hence why Google has to rebuild the app form the ground up and in the end it will look almost if not exactly like all the other YouTube apps available today.

My apologies, I thought the reason many wanted a YouTube app was because they wanted to watch YouTube on the PS4, which you can already do since day one. For those who do want an actual app, hopefully there will be one soon... imo for uploading to at least in the future :smileywink:

It's going to end up like ps3 did and they will re-release a ps4 with everything they should of had. atleast i hope they are going to fix all of the features from ps3 that they are missing.

It's long overdue & it's extremely annoying i can't watch gameplays as it says Flash Player upgrade is needed if you use the PS3 web browser it's laggy & occasionally freezes 

 

 

Mod Edit: Updated title and label. Check here for more information. Thanks! --GrainneNessa

it's coming...

flash support was dropped for consoles and a lot of hanhelds, including mobile phones, was dropped by adobe in the last few years. there is nothing sony can do, as adobe owns alll rights to flash. 

 

until the youtube app drops, go to www.youtube.com/tv on your consoles browser.
