For some reason my YouTube stopped working after I think about 2 updates ago. When it first stopped working I wasn't worried and figured the next update would probably fix it, but that hasn't happened (I currently have v5.9.4.9). It starts but nothing loads it just continually shows the loading icon (I also tried searching thinking that may work and didn't). I tried clearing cache and data and force stop then re-opening but that did nothing also.
Any ideas?

@Paulx777 the current version of Youtube app is - update it and see what happens.

Tbh the Youtube app has never been bug free on my tablet, at first it had exactly as you describe nothing would load - I did all sorts and finally figured out it was my wifi router being the problem so try a different wifi connection and see what happens.

Once that was fixed it would take ages to load and now it no longer updates my history. I just think this tablet and youtube aint the best of friends haha.

P.s. is 777 in your name refering to Boeing 777? Jus curious lol.

It's definitely something wrong with the YouTube update because I went in and clicked "Uninstall Updates" and whatever version it reverted back to worked perfectly. Plus, if you look at YouTube's Google Play ratings/reviews, a lot of people have been giving the update one star our dropping their rating from five stars to one for the same reasons...YouTube doesn't load, they get no picture and only hear sound, etc. And there's a bunch of complaints, they can't all be from Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition owners.
P.S. no, when I created the sn I put in Paul7 (I play baseball and 7 is my number) but it wasn't available, so this was what was available.
