Ever since the last update, my PS4 will no longer upload to YouTube. Every time I try to upload, it asks me to sign in and link with YouTube. I do so and it says it worked. But then I try to upload the video and it says the same damn thing again.

I have deleted all of my upload and download notifications already.
I deleted the YouTube save file
I removed the YouTube app from the PS4
I checked my Google services to see if YouTube PSN was on there, and it isn't

I do not know what the hell I need to do to be able to upload from my PS4. I know I can just copy the video to a USB stick and do it from my PC. But that is extra steps I should not have to take.

I've had this problem from time to time. Sometimes it works, sometimes I have to sign in (even though I already linked accounts ages ago) then sometimes it just doesn't seem to work. Very odd.

I have to connect PSN account to YouTube everytime I upload something but it works, it takes a bit longer though, the video finishes the upload then I go to YouTube.Com to check the account and it shows no newnuploads for maybe 5 minutes or more.

You tried the license refresh?

Yep, this is still bugged. Just tried to upload one myself and keep going round in circles linking YT account to PSN. PITA! Manual upload works of course but that doesn't share with your PSN friends! Frustrating :mad:

At least it is not just me.

To be honest I can recall several times over the past 6 months this has happened so I wouldn't call it an isolated incident either.

I hate to say it, but YT upload is working again for me today :lol: Peculiar is a word that springs to mind.
