    I'm having an issue where my primary gmail account is suspended on youtube. It has been for years, so I've always had to deal with these issues.

    I've bypassed this issue on my Nexus 10 and ipad mini by adding both of my accounts to android and then it would allow me to login with my newer unbanned/primary youtube account.

    Just today I got the S4. I added both accounts, but the youtube app is stuck trying to log into my old banned account. It won't give me the option to choose my other account. Whenever I click "Sign in" I get the message "This action isn't allowed" I know this issue is because I'm banned from the account I'm logged into, but I can't get it to let me choose my other account.

    Again, I didn't have this issue on the nexus 10. I don't know if TouchWiz is affecting this in anyway. I'm a moron, I have no idea.

    Any suggestions are much appreciated!

    Could it be that you added the banned account first so the phone uses this as the primary account? Try deleting both accounts from the phone and adding the un-banned account first.

    Thanks, I think that took care of the issue. It's strange on my nexus10 I was able to do it while keeping my banned account as my primary. None the less, removing my primary and readding it fixed the problem.
