I can't recall if I posted this before (but if I did, sorry for repeating it!):

Old ass video, but I suddenly remembered this. What are the chances?!
 

 
A pitcher in a baseball game throws the ball towards home plate, something he's probably done thousands of times in his life, and suddenly a bird swoops in with the absolute worst (or best--you decide) timing in the world. When the bird gets hit by the pitch, it looks like something straight out of the cartoons. How the hell does it explode in a massive cloud of plumage like that?! The bird remains in one piece, but seemingly every feather in its body flies out. xD!! I can't explain how the hell that happens...maybe an extreme amount of physical pressure suddenly building up in its body causes every feather to shoot out of its bird-pores? Wtf?
 
 
 
 
So, recently I discovered that YouTube no longer works on the Wii U Browser, which is a huge shame because the YouTube on the browser was infinitely better than the load of shit offered by the dedicated YouTube App, but I just looked it up and found one simple workaround. All you have to do is add "_popup" directly after "watch" and the video will load on the next page, granting you full access to the video display on the GamePad and TV as you were able to do before.

Before they launced the Youtube App, i tried watching a video using the regular browser and my whole system froze up. I couldn't do anything short of pulling the plug. I was afraid i might damage the brand new system, but luckily it recovered just fine.

I've had the browser freeze up on me before too, but it wasn't on a YouTube vid. I've also had my Wii freeze on me while playing Nintendo Land, and my original Wii froze on me like every fucking time I'd play Goldeneye online. Never had my console taken any sort of damage. The only time I had something bad like that happen to me was my Memory Card 1019 corruption back in 2007, and nothing happened to cause that corruption: No freezing, powering off while saving, glitches, or anything else out of the ordinary. I'd suggest giving another shot to YouTube in the browser. It really is fuckyears better than the YouTube App.

seriously wtf?  I ran into the youtube problem trying to listen to music.  Is that intended?  If so that's fucking stupid considering you can't use the YouTube channel to watch stuff on your gamepad AFAICT.

Huh???

Trying to listen to music where? On YouTube? And is what intended? The problem?

 

And yeah, you can't control or watch the video on the GamePad touchscreen in the YouTube App. It's counter-intuitive in every way possible.

The fact that youtube no longer works in the web browser.  Is that intentional so you use the app or a bug?

Oh, at first I thought the same thing; I thought Nintendo had done something to make YT on the browser unusable so that people wuld be forced to use the asstastic browser that somebody somewhere worked "so hard" to get to work on Wii U, but I learned from the vid I posted (or the cubed3 article in which it was embedded) that it was actually YouTube itself that did an update to their site and killed functionality for devices that couldn't run Flash.

Anyway, Ngamer posted on my YT bitching thread on Miiverse (just moments after I had reconfirmed that the browser site was till fucked up) and said that YT fixed their HTML 5 support and that we could once again use the Wii U browser for YT as we did before their update.

Perfect timing. This is the 2nd time I go out of my way to find a fix to something that should have been working properly, only to have the problem officially fixed shortly thereafter. This wasn't as annoying as executing the time-consuming glitch exploit in Sonic Racing, but it's still something similar on Wii U.
