    Did they change format or something?

    The site looks different and I'm not able to use it on my iPhone. Is this a problem with the site or is it on my end?

    Is it the same format? This is a problem that started yesterday for me. Could be my ancient phone.

    Seems to be the same on my end (PC) with no visual or behavior differences.

    I must have accidentally hit a button or screwed something up. Must be my fault.

    There is a Mobile version and a Desktop version. I have to use the desktop version.

    my complaint is f’n google, since they bought YouTube they make it worse and worse every month. And they’ve become greedy with the ads interrupting every 1 1/2-3 minutes. Plus those confounded pop in ads that take up 1/3 of the screen. Sheesh.

    It's probably my fault. Yesterday I was downloading a ton of music videos. I'll try to stretch them out a little more.

    Man, I hear ya! Interrupting a three minute song to advertise something I'd never buy in the first place! Not to mention, I'm a belligerent bastard and I'll quit using a product I like if you annoy me with advertising when I'm listening to a song or trying to watch a guitar lesson.

    You hear me, Ghirardelli? You aren't the only company that makes a 90% chocolate bar.

    Ah-ha! We're making progress. How old is your phone, if you don't mind me asking?

    Ha! I think mine's a 3. I bought it over 4 years ago at Wally World to use with (not so) Strait Talk. It was a late model III. An S, maybe?

    Yeah, it’s weird. Not only that but I can’t seem to find ANY Bearenstein Bears videos and the documentary on Mandela’s death in prison is missing, too!

    Try: m.youtube.com

    That's the mobile version, looks like you're defaulting to the desktop version as someone mentioned. The site uses browser detection to serve up scaled/skinned content, and given its age, YouTube may have just deprecated the bit of code that picks up your phone's browser as a mobile device.

    The new update is not compatible with outdated iOS versions. I have an older iPad for YouTube only an it shut me down yesterday as well.

    Time to pony up, I guess.
