COMMENT SYSTEM BROKEN. POOR DEV SUPPORT

Comment system is broken. I've contacted developer but have yet to hear back. Constantly displays failed to add comment error message. Microsoft store's return policy is TERRIBLE. So I have to call a # just to return my purchase?! Are you kidding me?! I've emailed this developer TWICE and still have received no response. ITS BEEN 3 DAYS. Why is the comment system broken?! Videos and everything load fine but comment system is completely broken. If you going to take my money at least respond to my emails about a serious app error.

Need fix ASAP

This is a promising YouTube app for Windows 8, especially it offers free with ads at least. The navigation on screenshots looks nice. Major PROBLEM though, it CRASH everytime I start the app in my laptop (Lenovo Z560), my other custom built PC works just fine. Need fix ASAP, this could be a 5 star if not with this problem.

Great app

Great app, but if YouTube is free, why should we pay for the app? I'm sure Google is developing the YouTube app for Windows 8. As for this app, I only hit try not buy. I'm not buying a FREE service.

Good but I Can't Send Comments

I like everything about this app, from the design and interface to the video streaming speed. It is excellent. However, I cannot post comments on my 1st Gen. Surface Pro. I can switch to browser mode if I'm really inspired, but it's inconvenient and a stain on the excellence. I can't be certain how many people are having this problem, if any, but I do wish it was fixed.

missing a key feature

this app doesn't do a very good job of detecting which resolution video can be played at. a lot of videos only show up as 360p or 720p when theyre 1080p on the website. other than that, its great.

Started crashing with NVIDIA video cards

I found that both of my computers started bluescreening today while using this app. Ive been using it for a long time now so its something recent. No other apps are bluescreening. Ive found its related to the video card driver and this app. I'm working with an NVidia 650 GTX TI and an NVidia 760GTX (neither are overclocked) on two separate machines and running the latest march 2014 driver. Might want to look into this.

GARBAGE

Does not play 75% of videos with my (fresh out of the box) Surface. No way would I pay for this. Free trial is a bust. When I select a video, it says "video failed to play". Don't even bother. Disappointment.
