Still Crashing?

If you’re still experiencing crashes on your YouTube app, it may have something to do with your device and not the app bug. You can do some troubleshooting and try different ways that might do the. The simplest one would be restarting your device. Also, check your Internet connection as there might be connectivity problems.

If that still doesn’t work, you can try clearing your Cache for the YouTube app. Go to Settings and scroll down until you find the YouTube app. Once you do, tap on it and search for Clear Cache. This works for some, not to mention that regularly clearing your app caches could actually save you some space.

In the event that you are still experiencing bugs, you can take bigger measures like uninstalling the app. You can do this by simply tapping and holding on the app icon, and selecting Delete. Reinstall the app on the App Store and sign back in. If the problem still persists, then you might need to wait for the next update, according to Digital Music News.

Usually, developers find bugs like these and create fixes for them. In the meantime, you can watch YouTube videos old school-style by watching them through the browser on the YouTube website. Sure, the interface won’t be the same, but if you’re itching for a fix from your favorite artist or YouTuber, then it’s the next best thing.

Perhaps an Alternative

There are other sites like YouTube where you can search for videos that you want to watch. For instance, you can opt for Vimeo. It has around 175 million users and is available in 150 countries. However, you will be billed annually with plans like Starter for $6.75, Standard for $18.75, and Advanced for $48.75. But hey, no ads.

If you’re on YouTube for the music video content, maybe you can try and look into Vevo. It’s the largest music video provider, according to VdoCipher, with big names under its belt. They support artists like Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, Lewis Capaldi, Jorja Smith, and more. You can scan through 500,000 music videos, and join in on its amassed viewership of 26 billion a month.
