Hey folks

Im using my ps3 for a media player to watch youtube on one of my rigs but since yesterday it has been pissing me off and i was wondering if anyone else is having the same stuff happen.

When im on youtube and i go to click somewhere, my curser seems to shoot up to the top of the screen , its a real pain in the ass so im wondering if this is the result of a upgrade or patch or something .
Anyone else experiencing this and if so what could it be ??

Appreciate any input .

After a long time using youtube on ps3, my advice would be: give up. In all the updates theyve released ive only seen the app worsen and Im not sure you should be expecting anyThing coming from it on ps3 anymore

Just my 2cents, had nothing but problems with that app

you can hit start and type in youtube adress to use the real site instead of the app, its a little better. I have still found that sometimes it freezes up my ps3 though.

I don't care for the PS3 YouTube app at all. If they release one for PS4, I hope they make a lot of improvements. I've never experienced the issue that you explained, but I always have connectivity issues (could be my net) and the format/UI is buggy and overall pretty awful.

If it helps, and if you have a phone that's capable, I find it much more enjoyable to link the phone with the system and control the PS3's YouTube app from your mobile YouTube app. It's so much nicer to navigate the video selection. Not always as easier though to scrub through the video - but, it's still much better than the PS3 app by itself. I think there are instructions on how to link them in the settings section of the PS3's YouTube app.

Good luck with the issue.

just wanted to ad:

Im accessing youtube through the browser under the network menu ,
Reading alot about the youtube ap though.
Pain in the ass...

At the top of the screen there is a button to switch to a "made-for-tv" experience .
Not sure if it will make a difference though.

Time to replace your controller? I actually like the yt app. Never had an issue.

I've found youtube to be quite buggy on PS3 right from the get go, sometimes it works great and sometimes it doesn't... so I just don't bother with it anymore.

I wish I could offer up some answers, unfortunately I don't have any.
