    I just got a new HTC Evo and when I use the youtube app it just goes to a black screen like it is loading but doesn't do anything, but if I go to the browser and go to youtube it works. I can't use any of the soft keys at the bottom, I have to make the phone go to sleep then open it again. I was wondering if it just takes long to load or if the app is broken, I am only in a 3g area but I wouldn't think that that would affect it. If anyone has any advice or info it would be much appreciated.

    EDIT: it shows my notification bar but doest let me access it

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. On top of that when YouTube does not work and I hit the home button the YouTube screen becomes my wallpaper. It recovers when I put the phone to sleep.

    Okay I let it sit a while and found out it just took a long time to load for the first time, now the app is working fine.

    I wanted to open this back up. My buddy has his Evo, and when he opens youtube, it goes black really quick then back to home screen. Its not opening at all. Does anyone know why? Weve restarted the device and everything.

    I cant play with mine because im still waiting on my insurance replacement :( I actually never opened youtube on my Evo.

    I wanted to bring this up AGAIN because I have the Evo but since yesterday night the Youtube App isn't working. When I click Youtube it tells me "Sorry! The application YouTube (process .com.google.android.youtube) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." Then it tell's me to force close it.

    I've tried restarting my phone but nothing seem's to work. What do I do?? :thinking:...

    Let's see if this helps - go into Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All tab

    Scroll down to YouTube - tap it. If running, Force Stop - then Clear data - then Clear cache.

    Next - relaunch YouTube - and report back if this fixed anything or not, as this could be helpful to others.

    I think this problem with the youtube app has been seen before. On mine it does not load the video. If you press play enough time it will play the video, so I just use the browser. I my opinion using the browser is better anyway. Youtube app is not useful!

    Ok so every time I go to my YouTube app it forces me to sign in I'm fine with that.
    But after I sign in I can select any thing the it wants me to sign in again.
    It keeps doing this until I force close if any one could be of assistance that would be awesome.

    Did you try to force stop clear data and cache like mentioned above? In some cases installing the ap from the market will solve the issue also.

    Are you up to date on updates?
    Menu.settings.software updates etc etc?
