    The website prompts me to download the app (which I already have....). I am seriously fed up with Google. This is a joke.

    Forget the website and just use Metrotube: Metrotube | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    My 920 is doing the same thing and I'm seriously pissed off and here is why. The youtube app is built into the phone when I receive a text with a video in it i can't open it anymore because the phone realizes on the youtube app this is very frustrating and a major problem now bing media video option is worthless now when you click on videos it needs the app. Metro tube is nice but takes all the convenience out of the U.I. like I said major problem. Metro tube is not a good option for replacement with the 920 when you have been used to the fluidity of the way youtube interacts with the operating system

    Mikes point is what I'm upset about. A lot of things are broken without the website working. I don't want to have to remember the name of a video, open metrotube, type it in, and HOPE I find it. Ruins the whole fast & fluid thing. I love metrotube for browsing but WP8 NEEDS this to work

    Fyi they had issues with the mobile site the other day. Which prompted you to download the app. Should be working now.

    You don't need the YouTube app on WP8. I've had no issues viewing embedded videos on my Lumia 920.
