    YouTube is broken on Microsoft Edge... For months


    Please fix Microsoft Edge when you go to YouTube it is well... Broken would be an understatement, it's barely usable especially when you update it which I had the idea hey maybe this'll work. I regret ever pressing that button worst part once you press
    it there is no going back no magic you are stuck in this toxic sludge you can look for hours no fix is possible on xbox so you have to resort to using that sorry excuse of an app YouTube which lacks basic features plus if you forgot your xbox password like
    me well.. you are (insert adult language that'll get you banned for a week because this is a family friendly platform now) cause apparently you need it in order to get on the app because I'm assuming money... Probably money aka cookies or some other money
    maker. Anyways enough with the rant can someone please help me or fix this? PS If you say Oh use the App it's so much better I'm gonna lose it, I swear is there any communication between YouTube and Microsoft or do they just use smoke signals I feel like I'm
    trying to contact the IRS.

    :)

    YouTube is broken on Microsoft Edge... For months

    ngocphil I love how the one thing I asked hey please don't pull a oh the app is so much better line and low and behold first comment by an ambassador is exactly that... Ok why would I use Microsoft Edge instead of the YouTube app, the app lacks basic functions
    of YouTube such as a comment system which is a fundamental part of YouTube that's like taking the party system and voice chat off Xbox, also it's janky and search results are skewed there are restrictions I could go on and on but look it's a altered less functional/optimal
    version of YouTube. On edge it's convenient bouncing from tabs one moment I'm watching YouTube the next I'm on Facebook or Wikipedia or Google without having to switch apps it's honestly way better or it was atleast. I fixed the YouTube app problem it had
    a popup that needed permission for all my xbox information which was sketchy and the last time I had that type of popup it made me use my password which I forgot last time because my memory is
    [Mod removed- inappropriate] and I was locked out of my account due to a error anyways I just internally said
    [Mod removed- inappropriate] and thankfully this time no password still sketch though. Look man I just wanted to do my thing I shouldn't have to use an app to go on YouTube even on the 360 YouTube worked on the browser and better this issue
    shouldn't be pushed under the rug with alternatives it's been months and no resolution heck Facebook barely even works on edge I know you are an ambassador it's not like you are tech support for Microsoft so I'm not trying to push this problem on you or lash
    out at you I'm just frustrated about this situation and in a way this post was more of a vent at the incompetence of Microsoft when it comes to maintenance on Microsoft Edge on the Xbox. Also LegoNinja187 I get what your saying I just like to do everything
    all in one on my TV without draining my phone anymore than I need to.

    YouTube is broken on Microsoft Edge... For months

    Personally I use google chrome to watch youtube, or the app on my phone, I simply don't bother with the app on Xbox, or edge on Xbox, I actually don't use my Xbox for anything other than games, and spotify in the background now, oh and a few rewards apps
    like microsoft rewards and Forza Hub.

    My advice is to just not use Microsoft Edge or the youtube app on Xbox and find another way to watch youtube if it is causing you such a headache.

    Also should be noted that not all videos are html5 compliant if you are getting content isnt available you have to speak to your host not xbox or google

    They just didnt update their content from flash

    This is upto the host not google

    This is why most people use the app

    Because it loads html5 content

    If it is flash content it will straight up tell you its not compatible

    Adobe has abandoned flash and mobile flash and embraced html5

    Why in heavens name would you use a browser vs app?

    If you forgot your password you cant do that on a console why would you even attempt it

    You need authentication which cannot be done on an app

    Authentication is something that needs a webpage.

    Thats not a basic feature

    Its not meant to be part of an app

    Because to reset your password on any google or dual factor system you need email or sms or phone and load the code

    Which consoles.cant obviously provide since you need to switch screens and lose time

    Since you havr two mins to enter the complex code

    Good luck trying to reset a password with just a console

    Unless you have a keyboard and your phone handy in which case you will be better off doing it via your phone since you can copy and paste the code

    Microsoft Edge issues

    I have also seen youtube videos that say how bad EDGE is, and it is so bad that there are programs out there designed to REMOVE Edge from Windows PC's. If Edge was designed for Windows PC's or XBOX 1, it was poorly designed, and leaves you wondering what
    Microsoft was thinking - They simply could have allowed IE 11 to be installed and forget EDGE - ESPECIALLY when Edge does NOT have any support for add ons or seems to be incomplete - I would NOT use EDGE for anything - Give us a Real Browser!!! NOT a Broken
    down, non-working, crippled version of a new browser which does not work!!!

    Thank You!
