Works wonderfully...sometimes

When YouTube DJ works, it works marvelously, wonderfully well. There is no crashing, videos properly play in the background and all is well in the world. Even when things do go wrong the app provides useful error messages that clearly and concisely alert you to the issue. What is the problem then? Well it seems that YouTube DJ has issues with video format support. A large number of the videos I try to play just fail. There is no workaround for this issue, and unlike on YouTube, a playlist will not just skip to the next working video. You have to do that yourself.

Doesn't work. Huge disappointment.

This app has a great concept. It's description is everything I ever dreamed about. I was actually giddy when I saw this app in the Microsoft store. When I opened it all of my YouTube subscription's were their along with my playlists and favorite music video's. It said I could watch them in 720 or 1080 HD and even download it. I was on cloud 9. But then I tried to play a video. Nothing try again. Nope, well maybe another video. Nope. I only got 1 video to play. Well maybe download works. Not even. This app stole my innocence.

You know what would be neat?

I love this app, and I think it can be even better. What if, in the settings, there was an option to have it automatically skip videos after a set number of failed attempts to play them.

YouTube Savior!

I was so frustrated with my new win 8 tablet because the YouTube app wouldn't playlist. It said I needed to download new flashplayer. I did EVERYTHING step by step from updating windows and installing google chrome and you name it. I read reviews in the windows app store and everyone is frustrated with the red bar on the YouTube app. BUT THEN I FOUND YOUR APP - and waalah!! You solved all the issues! Thank you! This is better than the YouTube app. Full screen means full screen and no flashplayer video issues & upgrades. Very smooth download and easy to navigate. I'm stoked!

Only good for your own playlists

All the scrolling really makes it useless to look through my subscriptions. Instead it's probably just best for looking through your own relatively short list of plalylists. It'd be nice to have a different way of viewing all the videos than how they list them.

Simple, but perfect for my needs

If you are looking for a more robust platform, this probably isn't for you. This will however, allow you to seamlessly listen to channels that upload music, or channels that curate their content into proper playlists. definitely worth the effort of clicking the download button, no ads so far, not in the interface of the app itself, nor in the videos.

Organizes your favorites and blocks ads

This app is amazing! I love the amazing organization of playlists and the fact that it blocks ads. Its how youtube was meant to be also lets you play as music in the background so you can enjoy your favorite songs straight from your youtube playlist
