Hello guys ;), A few days ago, youtube changed their API so whenever I try to go on youtube, it just says "Cannot Connect to Youtube" or displays

I tried opera mini (probably the fastest iPhone 2g browser), and it uses the old youtube API to play the video. I really do NOT want to use safari ::), so if you know any alternatives that support my iPhone 2g please let me know, and send me the IPA or tell me where is it in apptimemachine
Thank you :)

At this moment in time your best bet would be to use safari other browsers such as Opra Mini or Mucruay Browser both of which are avalible on apptimemachine...

Hmm, well there is nothing we can do from our end, short of coding a new app. However, I don't think that will happen any time soon....

All Youtube apps with api v3 are for iOS 7 but there is some apps for  iOS 5.1-6 unfortunately for iOS 3-4 there is nothing :( you must use web browser (opera,safari) safari is very slow use opera is better

in case you guys haven't discovered it. your playlist still shows the videos and they play perfectly.
you can't search for videos but you can make an "iPhone" playlist from the youtube app or your computer then just add videos you'd like to watch later through your computer to that playlist. the videos should play just fine even newly uploaded videos.

I don't know why youtube needed to do this if in fact the codec or whatever of the videos is totally supported.
it wouldn't have killed them to keep the 500kb of code in their servers that are needed for our old youtube app to function.
