    Hi,

    youtube(google) redesigned their App so the keyboard cannot be used anymore.
    Very sad for all Philips TV Users but nothing what we can change.

    Hi,

    the YouTube app (made by Google) does not support text input via keyboard.

    HI,

    you can ask Youtube/Google to change their App Design.

    Hi,
    First, am not using Youtube/Google Television, am using Philips smart TV, so you are responsible to tell me how to get back to the older version of the application. Because I have not updated the app specifically, but the whole TV. Second, it's really irresponsible by your companies to release an application that is not good (slower than the previousone, inability to type over the remote and using the keyboard ...) in the system. That's why I'm asking you, how to go back to the old system (so the application can return to previous version).

    +1 to the opinion above.

    It's not our responsibility to test and report bugs and speed flaws of an application.
    We do it on our own just to help you and in such way helping us to receive better software.

    YouTube application is one of very small number usable applications of so called Smart TV platform so please make your best to release more useful version soon (i.e. remote keyboard use, working Youtube 3D, speed improvements, etc.)

    It seems in the past there was such a version.

    Thanks.
    Regards.

    Hi,

    you might not get the Idea of SmartTV and how it is working correctly, let me help you with that.

    We don't do, what you call "Apps".

    We released the SmartTV Platform where everyone, including you or companies like google, can develop so called "apps".

    At the End, this "Apps" are not more then websites which are Linked on our Main Screen, so while opening "Youtube" on your TV, you open a Webpage with a special URL given by google. This Website has a special Design (CE-HTML/HTML5) to make sure a TV User can use this Services as good as a PC User.

    True, in the past there was a Version of Youtube where the Remote was Supported but now, they changed it.
    And there is nothing we can do about it except to tell google that you dont like the new version.

    But to really show google that you don't like the Version, tell them directly.

    Youtube is available on tons of Devices from various Manufacturers.
    All of them, including us, do have expectations to the "App" and whishes to make the App fit as best as possible to certain Devices.

    You might understand, or maybe not, that Google has to also check, what is the best for them, what fits the most.

    If you don't tell them, they only have our Reports, like they have reports from other companies.

    Like it or not.

    Your complaint is highly appreciated and i do agree with your Opinion. Anyways, it is directed to the wrong company.

    That is was i have written before and this is what i will write again.

    Thomas
