    Hey guys,

    I loveeee the look and feel of the Microsoft YouTube app (the one before it got pulled down) and I was just wondering if anyone else was having this issue, which is: the YouTube app is not clearing its memory whenever a video is watched... I saw my memory go from 2.09GB to 1.91 in a matter of minutes and I know its because of this app because I did nothing else but YouTube lool. I guess it's back to MetroTube for now but what is going on? What is the solution? :/

    I saw my memory go from 2.09GB to 1.91 < Technically your memory is reducing not increasing, or you posted the wrong way?
    What I do when I see an app eats up my space is I reinstall it.
    Also clear your internet cache, install shrink storage and follow on screen instructions :).
    Pin the marketplace tile on home so you know of any latest updates.

    Wow its gone!
    There are other good alternatives though, like 'Youtube Downloader' (Something like that), not only it plays youtube videos you can also dl videos into your phone memory :). Another one is 'get them all'

    Did anyone download the XAP installer for the youtube app before it was pulled? Is it possible to install it from the SD card even though the app is no longer in the store?

    I had the same problem. I saw my 'other' jump from 887mb to 1.2gb after watching a video. When I uninstalled the application the other storage didn't go down. Now I've just lost 300mb of from the 8gb total.. it's a joke that you can't delete this stuff.

    I don't think I mentioned anything about increasing or decreasing? But from my numbers yes, it is obvious I meant decreasing and yeah, sadly you cannot uninstall and reinstall anyways. And this happened to me before and I thought I was hallucinating because I did what you already told me to do (reinstall) and it didn't disappear so I was confused lol

    yeah my 8GB HTC storage disappeared SOOO fast because of this YouTube app, then I had to reset my phone and now I have 1.91 GB again lool. Yay. If you're gonna hard reset, try to back up all your stiff (I.e. Press back up texts included) and wait a day or 2, then do it cuz I did it right away (when I had it off the whole time) and it was hell to get everything back... Nothing came back perfectly except my contacts (after an hour -_-). Had to reinstall every app lol. Iunno if its a marketplace issue or something but yeh :/ and it said I needed data to log into my ms account when I first started -_- I was pretty sure they used to use WiFi before cuz I never had data but iunno
