Due to this issue, many users have reported on various online platform that, why YouTube behaves like that? Has the video affected? Let’s take have a look at some users report.
Been watching youtube and video just glitches (shows a distorted still of the video) for a minute before going back to normal. On Vudu, a solid green screen took the place of the movie i was supposed to be watching. Both 4k and HD video is affected. My device is an Xbox One X.
My xbox was working perfectly fine a few days go. On the 19th (a day after the most recent update) is when the issues started.
This last week the Youtube app has started freezing for a couple seconds with either green lines, pink screen, or a silhouette of whats on the screen. This doesnt do this with anything else on the TV or Xbox.
Since then, Microsoft Company has acknowledged “YouTube Video Playback issue” and promised that the company is aware of the problem and Xbox engineers will team up with YouTube app developers to solve this issue very soon. Sadly, the company didn’t provide any ETA as to how much time will take the company to resolve the issue. Since, couple of weeks has gone, but still Xbox One X users are facing the same issue. Let’s take have a look at Microsoft Moderator statement about issue.
We have been seeing reports come in through the forums and other support platforms about this issue and it has been acknowledged. Xbox engineers will need to work together with YouTube app developers to find the root cause and either implement an update for the YouTube app from the developer or have a fix be implemented in the next console system update.

I am trying to save a video in my feed to watch later but the ‘button’ is not there. I have done this many times before with no problem. This problem has only occurred today. I have logged out and back. Cleared some videos from my saved list, nothing works
I logged into my subscriptions page today and found that when hovering over a video thumbnail in the list, there’s no longer an icon that has the clock and says ‘watch later’ when I hover over it.
NOW I have to click on the three dots, THEN click ‘watch later’ what a pain!
Is there any reason this is happening, and will it be a staying change, please god no. It’s inconvenient and absolutely stupid to make such a change.
