    Youtube app is now useless (can't play 60fps and people are updating all channel videos to ...


    The app is now useless since you can change the uploads you did before and update them to 60fps and after that they won't play anymore on Xbox (for example Youtuber "theradbrad"). If user uploads or updates their videos to 60fps then the useless Xbox
    can't go to HD but will stay at 480p which is very bad especially on big screens. Basically I can't watch lets play videos on Xbox anymore because new ones are always uploaded @60fps and some are even updating their old videos to 60fps. Is this going to be
    fixed or do I just need to get Chromecast etc.?

    :)

    Youtube app won't play HD60fps and goes directly to 480p

    So the app can't play new videos on HD anymore (those that are uploaded as 60fps). This is really annoying since I use this from a 50 inch TV and now I can't because the picture quality on 480p is simply awful. Most people nowdays upload 60fps to Youtube
    so in a couple of months the app is useless unless Google(?) updates and fixes it. I guess it's the same on PS3 or PS4.



    Any idea if this will be fixed?

  3. Does 50hz being unable mean I can't run 60fps?

    I am watching them from an iPad from the YouTube app which supports 60fps as an option for HD videos.

    Youtube is responsible for making the app. They are the ones you should contact.

    No. Microsoft should contact youtube, it is their console and their customer. Why should the customer have to run around chasing third parties for fixes when it is in the interest of Microsoft to retain the customer's business. Stop it. i think I know what
    Google is doing, they are frustrating Xbox customers to get them to switch to chrome cast for their streaming needs. i might just do that because the new youtube app sucks. It is so user unfriendly that it has become non-functional for my intended use. can't
    sort by upload date, ff and rewind are at a fixed speed now, can't skip a page of results, i can keep going, this app sucks. The whole point of an update, in this case a forced update, is to provide a better user experience. Google is genius, I will be switching
    to chromecast.

    Xbox One Media Remote Functionality YouTube App

    Update: as far as volume: works correctly on all apps thankfully. It controls Blu-Ray as well. In YouTube the only buttons that function properly are the home button (X), volume up and down, and for some reason the channel up/down works for selecting channels
    but once your at the preferred YouTube channel you cannot press leff or right to select a video to watch nor can you press OK/Select to play the video. However, when switching to controller and selecting a video and playing it, once the video is playing the
    remote does work for pause, play rewind, forward as it does in any other normal working app. Other than YouTube, everything works fine. I do wish it had a dedicated SNAP button. I do not know if it works on FXNOW because I have version and they haven't added
    it as a carrier but most likely it does.
