"You Tube application not available after March 2015. It is the most popular application on Samsung smart TV,s.
No longer supported by You Tube" I spent hours on the phone with Google and Samsung. Samsung tech support had me try various things to repair the problem but no one would pick up the phone and call engineering.
It is a small device that plugs directly into your TV usb Chromecast works with apps like Netflix, You Tube and Plex for streaming video but also allows users to open a Chrome tab remotely, on their big screen.
This means anything from the internet can be played through the device and onto a telly.
There’s hundreds of apps available through the Samsung TV Smart Hub, so naturally if the server status changes and goes down today, then this will impact many 3rd party services.
Through this hub you can load apps like Netflix, BBC i Player, ITV Player, and many more that will not be working if the main software cannot load.
As it is no longer supported, there isn't much we can do about it.Samsung and Google forums have hundreds of complaints about the problem. Samsung representatives stated the TV is considered at the end of it's life cycle, it is an 2011 TV.Samsung even sold a product called Demetrius Evolution for 0 to fix the problem but I was told it wouldn't work with my TV.The Samsung TV Smart Hub is used worldwide, so it’s a global nightmare when problems occur and even more if the interactive television service goes down completely.We have seen Samsung Smart Hub TVs run into DNS issues in the past and these require a fix to the normal address on occasion, although this is a rare event.
