Title: YOUTUBE API CHANGED 3.1.3 YOUTUBE NO LONGER WORKS! - Alternative apps?
Post by: iCookiee on April 26, 2015, 12:12:05 PM
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 (http://www.phpsugar.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/youtube-device-support.jpg)

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...

it just says "Cannot Connect to Youtube", I try opera mini (proboly the fastest iphone 2g browser)
Opera mini is the fastest browser for all devices I use it on my iPhone 3G every day.....
It's bad that they are killing old devices :( ......

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

Whited00r should make its own YouTube app for ios 3-4
But that takes time

I don't think the youtube api is open source anyway.

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.

Yeah it sucks but its better than nothing. I started doing it from Opera. searching for videos there and see whats new form my subscriptions and adding to the playlist from there.

Further more, this is curious, I use twitter-3.2.1-whited00r_tested.ipa and if you follow a tweet's link to a video it actually does show you the new youtube website and plays the video just fine...

NOPE Opera use youtube api v2 so I can't watch vids there and now I can't watch vids on the youtube APP because it is down, (even watching on the playlists) SO I don't think youtube will ever come back

Hello to everyone! I founded the solution for watching youtube videos on old iDevices. A have the same problem, my Youtube app is no longer supported and Safari can't play Youtube videos. And after some time of searching i found a browser named Mercury Browser, which is available on AppTimeMachine! It has good features and is supporting Youtube, so you can watch videos in High Quality from Youtube on it. Try it! It's working ;) Hope i helped  :)

Hello, i found an alternative app for watching Youtube videos and it works very well. I found it from a user. The app that i'm talking about is MiniBrowser pro
If you want a Fast simple browser I would suggest Mini Browser or Mini browser pro its a simple fast browser and the latest version works fine on ios 3.1.3 it also plays youtube videos fine without lag.  ipa and appstore links: http://iapps-old.weebly.com
Just go to this link( http://iapps-old.weebly.com/downloads.html ) and you will find ios 3 compatible apps, there is the mini browser too. Just click on "download" and it will redirect you to a cracked version on AppStore, install and you can use it. You can watch easily Youtube videos in HQ and normal quality and works for all, in Safari you can watch only some of the videos because ios 3 don't have all video certs.
P.S. i was able to watch a google+ video on this browser too!!!
Hope i helped :)
