Once again webview updated which switched me to the wrong version of YouTube. Menus slide from the side (no menus along the top), and I get banner advertisements while looking at the list of videos.
In the past I've had success by clearing data, uninstalling YouTube and Webview and then reupdating.
I've done that half a dozen times now and even with the default original version of the two apps I'm STILL seeing that clunky layout for YouTube.
Does anyone have suggestions?
Edit: Tested a second x850 tonight and I see the same thing.
I think occasionally YouTube makes an internal change that requires software updates.
Webview was updated because of it. I know standard YouTube for Android got an update today. A third party app I use that works with YouTube pushed an update two days ago because of an API change.
Unfortunately, YouTube for Android TVs seems to be the bottom rung and the version we use falls back to some sort of compatibility mode until an update actually happens.
Edit 2: ....and a new version of YouTube is out fixing the issue. I had to disable the app, clear the data, reboot and then re-enable to get the correct look back, but it is back.
