I am able to log into YouTube on my computer, but not my iPhone's built-in YouTube app. I typed the username and password on my iPhone the exact same way I did my Mac, yet I cannot log on. What is the issue?
The only thing I am aware of that can be preventing you from logging in to your YouTube account on your iPhone is possibly 2-Step Verification, check accounts.google.com, sign in and check your secuity settings. If 2-step verification is on, turning it off will fix this problem, otherwise use google's settings two create an application password for YouTube on your iPhone.
I have tried using 2-step verification and not using it. I've also tried using the Generated password from google accounts, but the only way to get the generated password is to have 2-step verification enabled. I disabled 2-step entirely and still nothing is working.
To sign into this app on your mobile device : iPod touch, iPad or iPhone
Get your "Application Specific Password"
hopefully this video : http://youtu.be/W61rO8SdqaY
or the attached pics below clarifies this :
Step 1 - Click on Authorizing applications and sites
Step 2 - Name it then Click on Generate Passwords
Step 3 - When generated the Application Specific Password
is displayed inside the Yellow Frame ( as shown below )
Finally go to the Youtube App on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
USERNAME : youtube username ( please note this username is associated with you Google Account )
PASSWORD : Application Specific Password
I tried to simplfy the process above from m.youtube.com :
I managed to sign in to youtube through the app. After approx. 25 tries
I really hope this helps.
