i see a lot of people asking for a youtube app on the ps4. thing is, you don't really need one. just go to the web browser and enter the url www.youtube.com/tv and it will bring up the "tv friendly" version of youtube. it looks, and works, exactly the same as the ps3 app.
here is a screen shot taken from my ps4.
all the videos work. just press square to make the browser fullscreen and make sure the pointer is over the video you want to view, and the on-screen buttons you want to press. i hope this helps those of you wanting to watch youtube on your ps4.

PS4 should have the option to upload videos with share to youtube directly , not only to Facebook
yeah, just like we don't need "apps" when we can access "programs" from the profile files folder
What I've found with the web based YouTube is that some of the buttons and functions that would have worked with the previous YouTube app don't work the same or as easily. For instance, to select a video to watch from one of the horizontal menus, you have to move the 'mouse cursor' over the video box and then hit X to select it. The previous app would allow you to use the analog sticks to move from vid box to vid box which to me seems more fluid.
Also, I find trying to go back to the main YouTube menu screen is sometimes tricky if you're in the middle of watching a full screen vid clip...IMO, I think having a dedicated App would just make more sense. I'd love to see a Pandora app as well, but that's probably asking too much..heh

fairly sure at this point that youtube did not want Sony to let PS4 stream and save stuff to youtube. could be various reasons, first that comes to my mind is clutter. second is breaking rules (nudity etc.).
i think eventually we will get it once everything is sorted out and Sony has more control over how we stream.
