@MadAussie I'm a UK Wii U owner so I don't think this is regional.

I've ONLY had problems with YouTube(on the internet browser). The only reason why I noticed it wasn't working is because of this thread, actually.

I haven't had a Wii U freeze since February. What's interesting though, is that the freeze buzz happens for a split second every time I start the Youtube app, but it never escalates to a force shutdown.

Youtube is working for me. I was looking up 3D GBA games, and they look like PS1 graphics kinda.

I didn't even realize that I was using Youtube, but I can confirm it is working(for me at least).

I THINK I know what it is. It may be a ban on videos. if not all vids are being frozen, maybe they all have something in common. I am watching a youtuber who plays minecraft and there is nonstop cussing. Maybe Nintendo pinpoints these channels so the wii u can be censored.

@rockydomination Not only is that impossible and probably illegal, but they wouldn't deliberately crash their own system just to stop you from watching a video. Not to mention the fact that if they did that they'd censor the app too. It more than likely has something to do with the ads, as I was able to listen to a Notorious B.I.G. song that had a fair bit of cussing. The video didn't have ads.

I would guess it's with the ads not being fully compatible with html5 or whatever coding WiiU's browser is using thus crashing the software (and once software on a console crashes the hardware goes down with it).

Well, at least I know of more than three people with this problem now, including myself. Had this problem a month and a half or so ago.

None of this works for me anymore, but:
Stereo sound - works on some videos, better than nothing; I only did it on the Gamepad with offscreen veiwing
Deleting cookies - works for a while, not forever
Ressetting data - same as deleting cookies, but more annoying

Nothing new but stereo sound, but yeah.

I am Grodus. I will kidnap YOUR princess for the Shadow Queen, too!
