Youtube app stopped working 55UF6807


bigr

Question

After last week's Youtube app update on my LG 55UF6807 I am unable to use the app anymore. The update was applied on 18.11.2017 (Saturday).

I have tried reinstalling the app. Since no downgrade functionality is  possible then I would like to ask - what can I do to get the app back to a working condition?

Other apps work - I can stream Netflix and use the browser etc.

Added a screenshot of the view greeting me when opening the app. Casting does not work, the visible page is not usable in any way either.

Seems to be WebOS is generally flaky in LG TV's. Most common error with Apps is the 'Restarting app to free up memory ...' error that has been seen for years on LG TV's - basically LG don't install sufficient memory to run WebOS apps properly. 

Or possibly the apps are badly written and do not manage the memory properly, causing say memory leaks.  It is not like LG is the only one who has issues with apps falling over or freezing OSs, just search for issues with Samsung.  Many of the available apps are written by third parties who may have less than a perfect knowledge of what they are doing.

Hi bigr,

The YouTube app updated on my TV during the week and shows as being released on the 21/11/2017, version 1.0.35 (19783f6e) which theoretically newer than your installation so my give you better results if it is available in your region.

Unfortunately the November YouTube update has made the memory restart issue worse than before, it now crashes more frequently if anything and still no adequate solution offered by LG or Google,  My solution was to forget the flaky WebOS apps, installed a cheap Roku streaming stick and now enjoy zillions of apps including YouTube that all work perfectly.

Just got off the phone to lg support. I was told the web browser shuts down when attempting to stream video ON PURPOSE! Furthermore, once you stream anything from the internet, the cache fills up, does not clear, and prevents the installed apps from functioning properly.  I was told that the OS is a web browser NOT a web streaming service and if they allow customers access to stream video they will be in breach of their contractual agreement to the companies who have apps on the TV. This clearly doesn't happen on tablets or phones, so their logic for creating a sub par product is utter bollocks. I specifically asked the salesman if I could stream video from the internet and was told absolutely yes. When I pointed this out to Lg customer service they re-iterated that a web browser does not confer the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

Hello.

So is there a solution?

I have the newest Youtube app which was updated at the end of 2017.

My TV is 55UH600V.

 

Same screen message for me. 

 

Any suggestions?

 

I heard that Youtube ended support for TVs that are older (2012 and below), but mine is made in 2016 JUNE.

 

Thank You!

      We have a 65UM7300AUE with software version 05.40.10. We have a Google TV dongle plugged into the HDMI 1 port and that is the input we use most of the time. Until recently every time we would turn the TV on it would default to HDMI 1 and the Google TV home screen would be the first thing we’d see. Life was good. Several weeks ago that changed and now the LG OS (I assume) home screen is the first thing we see. Then we have to use the LG remote to select HDMI 1 each time. We never used to have to do this or use the LG remote at all. Kind of annoying. We think we have HDMI 1 chosen as our default input but it doesn’t seem to matter. Any ideas on how we get things back to the way they used to be with the TV defaulting to HDMI 1 automatically?

      I have a NANO91ANA LG TV connected via HDMI to a Yamaha RX-V677 Receiver. Normally when I turn the TV on it also turns the receiver on and I can control volume via the LG remote, whether it is an app on the TV or from another device connected to my receiver (Apple TV or cable box). Now the receiver is not turning on and ARC audio is not working. I think there may have been a software update the other day, but I'm not sure. However, everything was working properly until last night. The last time this happened it seemed to correct itself (it seems to be kind of sporadic), but this time it did not. I do not know what to do to correct this, but it is a major pain as I'm now having to deal with 4 remotes, plus I can't get sound out of my surround speakers when using an app on the TV.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Need to check My OTT App memory management and consumption on the app launch itself.

      I just purchased the LG UHD 43UP76 advertised as real 4k however the YouTube App is running at 1080p.  Which means 4k content is downsampled to 1080p then reupsampled to fit the 4k pixel grid and the image quality is awful.
      i assume WebOS runs at 1080p and simply upscales to 4k on low end 4k TVs, this same with high end TVs??
