Default Deleting user account on Youtube app

Has anyone found a way to delete a user account entered into the Youtube app?

I only see an option to add another account but no option to remove an account.

Anyone?

Found out from another user -

Go to:

Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync > Click Youtube Account

On the bottom it should say Remove Account.

Same problem...it automatically links to an old youtube account that I never use and would like a way to change it and link it to my google log in.

Go to:

Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync > Click Youtube Account

On the bottom it should say Remove Account."

Tried this and it doesn't say anything about removing an account.

Lightbulb More detail to solution

The steps reported above are correct but a bit more information was needed, because it can be misleading. For reference, my phone is the Droid X variant of Android.

Go to: Settings > Accounts

Within this screen you should be able to identify your YouTube account. Mine was <username>@youtube.com.

Long Press on the account you wish to remove.

A pop-up appears with only one option, "Open Account"

Click on "Open Account" (this is likely where many people get confused; "I don't want to open the account, I just want to delete it!" Trust me, this is where you need to go)

The next screen that appears now shows a "Remove Account" button at the bottom. Click "Remove Account" and acknowledge the "are you sure" pop-up.

Account has now been removed and will not automatically appear next time you access the app.

Settings < Accounts & Sync < Select the right account (one with the same email address associated with your YouTube account) < Click 'Remove Account' < Confirm It.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't realise how old this thread was.
