It’s not just you. YouTube isn’t working. DIRECTV staff have told us that YouTube videos on DIRECTV DVRs are not playing. They are aware of the issue and there is nothing you can do on your end to fix it. They’re working as hard as they can, as fast as they can, to get things fixed up. So, sit back and watch something you’ve recorded, or some live TV… those videos of cats playing the piano will be there for you later.
