YouTube upgrade issues…

As you are probably aware, YouTube performed a site-wide upgrade on Wednesday that changed the format (look) of the site.  The buzz around the net from many popular YouTubers is that these upgrades were not just on the surface level.  Many YouTubers are having problems uploading videos, and we’ve noticed small service disruptions and issues within the developer tools that we use to dynamically retrieve video listings in our apps.

Due to these sporadic issues, you may receive errors when fetching video listings, searching, or performing YouTube community features.  Please be patient – our apps are functioning as expected and the errors are indicating problems retrieving data from YouTube – not errors within the actual app itself.  We can assure you that YouTube is aware of any problems, and hopefully they will be resolved very soon.

Additionally, we have seen many reports from YouTube celebs that video upload and processing is taking longer than normal.  Due to this extra processing time, it is likely that there will be a slight delay before videos appear in our apps for playback.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us using the About tab in any of our apps.
