View Full Version : Does Apple TV Remove Music Videos from YouTube Favorites?

Not all my YouTube favorites show up on Apple TV. The only pattern seems to be that they have the names of musical groups or song names in the title.

For example, this Nirvana/Rick Astley remix video (goofy as it is) doesn't show up:

Has anyone else noticed this? Is Apple fiddling with my favorites?

Bump.

Just wondering: does anyone else have music videos in their YouTube favorites, and do they show up on your Apple TV YouTube favorites?

i don't have favorites set up in my youtube, but i did notice that i was unable to pull up the new u2 video on the apple tv. it is easy to find on youtube, and was posted by the band, but it will not come up on apple tv. comes up fine in the itunes store, not surprisingly. wouldnt be surprised if it is set up as a non-compete clause like the podcast programs unallowed in the app store.

Not sure about this. But I think only some of the videos on youtube are formatted for use on apple TV since it doesn't have flash. The videos on youtube that you watch on apple TV are .mp4 h.264. So the video may not have been converted to that format yet. But I could definitely be mistaken.
