Alternatively, this is the latest working Amazon YouTube app which shows a warning at the beginning, but then works as usual.
Or you can use this YouTube for Android TV app, so you can connect to your mobile phone via TV code without being logged in and use the app via smartphone (select, play, stop, etc.). However, you always have to start the app on the Fire TV first, then you can operate it with your mobile phone. An autostart and sign in doesn't work with this app without Google Play Services, but everything else works.
Very special thanks to Yuriy Lyskov, the author of the original app (https://smartyoutubetv.github.io)!
