The most recent Youtube update messed things up again, the Watch Later list is now in reverse order showing oldest added video on top and when you remove a video from the very bottom it'll jump back up to the top so you'll have to scroll all the way down again.

I want to set it up so that it won't remind me that there's an update for youtube. Don't confuse this with auto updating as that's turned off. I just don't want it to show up in Google Play with an update.

do you have root?
if you have root, you can use titanium backup. it has a feature that can break play store links to any app, so you can make it that youtube will never see a play store update.

Do you know if that TiBu feature will allow me to turn on auto update and still keep the "detached" apps from being updated? The only reason I turned off auto update was for three apps that I just detached using TiBu.

yea, if you disconnect the apps from the market, youll never get a notification for that app to get updated, nor will it update itself. the market wont know that you have it installed and that it needs an update.
