I first heard it on mynintendonews.com so I went and checked to see if it still worked on my WiiU...and it didn't. Least, not right away.

What you need to do, for any youtube video you want watch on Youtube, is use that video's embed link (exp:youtube.com/embed/__________(<----videocode)). To copy the embed link (it should already be hilighted) simply use your stylus/ finger and touch and hold on the hilighted text. I've tested this and it works. With anyluck maybe Google/ Youtube will fix their website so that it works.

That sucks as the Youtube application is still pretty bad and the browser was the best option to use it :(

The youtube app is an abomination that makes it harder to use youtube not easier. I hope whoever designed that sh*tbox lost their position, but I doubt it.

I thought it was a site bug because of the layout transition, which I despise right now unless I missed something that allows me to see my subscriptions' uploads by default.

I believe it is a bug. I tweeted the @Ytcreators and told them about youtube not working, I also tweeted Nintendo, and I also clicked on "send feedback" on youtube's website through the Wii U's web browser.
