    hi all,

    for some reason i can't seem to log in to the built-in youtube app. it works fine via the browser, but when i try to log in via the app it says either "the username or password isn't valid" or "there was a network error while trying to sign in to XXX. retry now or press the back button to cancel".

    i'm going on vacation in two days and was looking forward to uploading a few movies on the fly. looks like i will have to do it manually via the browser :(

    any ideas what's going on?

    UH OH! I can't log in either. I actually just signed up.

    I can login with a browser.

    I have also noticed that the main screen doesn't update the videos (even before trying to sign in)

    I go back to edit the account and try to log back in, and it says I'm username@youtube.com

    Ok, first level tech support had me do this:

    Change my password on a computer.

    Shutdown droid, remove battery, wait 10-20 seconds.... boot it back up.

    I entered my password and got:

    USER ERROR or something like that.

    But I'm now logged in )

    ---------

    Still got a problem, videos aren't refreshing on the first page, I still have 4 day old content.

    I had the same problem a few days after getting my phone.

    Step 1: Sign into youtube account on another computer
    Step 2: Type in email address and google account password
    Step 3: Click on link accounts button
    Step 4: Follow email account verification steps when prompted to.
    Step 5: Save new information when prompted to.
    Step 6: Google youtube on droid phone.

    Should be working fine after that.

    (Note): Cannot be done on you phone must use another computer.
