    One day when starting Youtube app I got the message that I need to update the app and the next one was that the latest version is not compatible with the device anymore. So i intalled older version, menaged to open it, but now videos doesnt load at all, there are stuck at buffering forever.

    I've tried installing couple of even older versions but it didnt help at all. Same thing happens in Chrome when I try to watch youtube via the website.
    The built in update app says the device is already running on latest software.

    Is there a way of using device with Android 6 to work with Youtube ? Some modified version of the app maybe ?

    Also does youtube check server side which version of app is trying to access it, then and allows only latest clients as a form of forcing people to buy new gear ?

    I think the answer was in your first sentence. "I got the message that I need to update the app"

    It's not really trying to force force people to buy new gear? It's not as if YouTube makes $$$$ from sales of whatever it is TV boxes. YT makes most of its bucks from ads.

    Maybe YT changed protocols, could be older versions of the YT app had security issues, that needed fixing and updating. Those are often reasons why services may force you to update client apps.

    If Chrome doesn't work, try a different web browser, like say Firefox. Latest versions of Firefox still run quite happily on Android 6 AFAIK.

    As for updating your Mecool BB2 Pro. Apparently it was updated Android to 7.1. Could be the update needs to be flashed manually using a PC? Check with the manufacturer's tech support.
