To get Youtube to work with the Wii U's web browser you have to put _popup between "watch" and the ? in the videos url.

The embed/ trick doesn't always work.

Edit* thanks to Gamingeek on theVGPress.com for the solution.

The embeded thing has always worked for me. It also works with youtube live streams.

Because it's Netfront Browser, which is a mobile browser.

I see....well my laptop is in the same room so the Wii U browser is only a novelty to me. But I could see how other Wii U users would want full sites on theyre big HDTVs.

Yeah, I, myself won't see much use for it since it'll be right next to my PC. But at least the option is there.
