    I can't seem to find the app on my iPhone? Did Apple remove it on one of there updates. I even used spotlight but had no success.

    Good question! I didn't realize it was missing until I saw your post. I'm used to using the web app anyway but still, it's a mystery to me what happened to the stock app.

    You guys should try to open a video that usually opens on the YouTube iPhone app and see what happens.
    If its gone, Alleluja, it was useless anyway.

    I agree, Benni the YouTube app was a waste of time considering you could simply navigate through mobile Safari and view videos in full screen anyway.

    I still have mine and I am fully updated.. :x

    also I have always hated the youtube app. it lacked in functionality and ability (there are tons of videos you cannot view in the app). plus the icon is super outdated

    Safari won't allow me to open that video. You must've embedded it. Maybe if a link was posted. Here's one to test.

    Edit: nevermind. It seems like either the forums auto embeds the YouTube links or Safari just can't open embedded videos any longer.

    Open Settings > General > Restriction
    Enter the 4 digit code,
    Allow Youtube set to "On"

    That's interesting, I don't remember turning restrictions on in the first place but I must have because I remembered the code. I'll just use the web app anyway but thanks for sharing.
