    It really depends what you expect from a YouTube app.

    Two very nice third party YouTube apps are YouPlayer (free, with in-app option) and ProTube for YouTube (2,99 dollar, no ads) which both support Picture in Picture, Slide Over and Split View functionality.

    Tubex is the best.

    Plays in the background, too.

    iPad and iPhone ...

    Can you make Protube your default player for YouTube videos when you click a video link in Safari?

    You can try using an app called opener.

    Opener ‒ open links in apps by tijo, inc.

    Not quite as seamless as having a default app setting, but it helps some.

    It should work with any app that supports share sheet extensions.

    Or use ProTube which costs you 2,99 dollar once.

    I found a bug when I go to view a certain YouTube video I get this error:

    "You do not hae permission to access the requested resource. Try the alternative player."

    When I click Try the alternative player I then get this error:

    "This video contains content from WMG. It is restricted from playback on certain sites. Watch on YouTube."

    It use to work fine.
