    There is a new update, version 2.2.14, for the YouTube for Android app. You can download it on the Market now. It comes with some pretty great new features, including the following:
    • Bug fixes and performance improvements:
    • Edit the title, description and privacy of your uploaded videos
    • New uploading UI integrated into the app
    • Create/Edit/Delete playlists on the go
    These new features already make the easy-to-use app even more accessible. Budding videographers will be even more productive, (or unproductive depending upon how much fun you are having, and what you "should" be doing). :)

    [Updated]: Apparently, some users had to figure out the hard way that Google hadn't fully tested all the kinks in their new YouTube app update. Don't you just love being an unpaid beta tester? At any rate, an update to the update is out now, which fixes the issues that folks have been having... supposedly. Here's a link to the Android Market to get the newer newest YouTube App update version 2.1.6: Updated Update for YouTube Android App

    I fail to see what this has to do with the Bionic or the SGS2?

    :p

    Jk, Glad to see YouTube finally updated, hopefully they added a settings button that forces HD video as the default.

    Not sure if it's just my x2 but after installing the update videos will no longer work correctly. It will start playing for a few seconds then skip to the end. I tried to reboot to see if that fixed it, but ended up uninstalling update, now it works fine.

    I hear a lot of complaints about the update on this app. Anybody got it working fine yet?

    im also having problems, plays for a few seconds then it catches up and has to stop, then it does it again. uninstalled the update and problem is gone, re-installed the update and the problem shows up again.

    Someone left a market comment about clearing the app's cache and rebooting. Does that improve things for anyone?

    I know I'm just echoing what has already been said, but for me it does the same thing as everyone else.

    I updated it on my Incredible and my Galaxy Tab and both of them have problems loading and playing the videos correctly.....uninstalled the update and it's back to normal!

    Funny how the updates break things! lol

    This is why I stockpile backup APKs fairly religiously.

    Did you clear app data and cache before updating?
