the current version of Youtube app is 22.214.171.124 - 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.
