    Anyone know how to log in to YouTube on an Apple TV3? I tried my google/youtube user name and password. No go. Then I tried it with the application-specific password and still it will not connect. I also tried both ways using my Apple TV wired and wireless. Still won't work. Anyone have any suggestions? I just got the Apple TV three days ago. Everything is update-to-date as well and all the other apps are working fine.

    I did that. I used my gmail username and my gmail password. I also used the username with an application-specific password and that did not work either.

    Figured it out. I had to sign in with the original email address that I set up for YouTube, not my gmail address, which I set up after YouTube and Google merged.
