    Just installed in and... I doesn't seems to allow my phone to connect to it as I do with PS4, WiiU, etc
    So I can't set a queue of videos from my phone to the Switch's Youtube app...

    Hopefully, but probably not, considering that Ninty probably isn’t going to make the same mistake again.

    The Switch not having native ingame chat is the very reason we are stuck with a phone app or discord

    Has there been any word whether you can access YouTube even if the Switch is super banned?

    youtube is redundant due to phones then following that (lack of) logic other modern enhancements to gaming consoles would be redundant as well like voice chat in games . . . but none of it is:rolleyes:

    tldr you must have forgotten to add one of these (/s) to your post . . . because you sound like you like nintendos stance to give us the bare minimum

    That's shit.
    They are even locking third party stuff from accessing the internet.

    Doesn't matter, a neat solution will come for those banned I bet, a media center of sorts based on Kodi or perhaps a new one with access to mountable devices and other video/streaming services for sure.

    Nintendo: Here's YouTube on Switch!
    Users: But we already have smartphones.

    Users: We want a voice chat feature!
    Nintendo: But you already have smartphones.

    Sent a tweet to @YouTube. I can confirm that there is no audio out for third party docks. Hopefully we get a patch soon.

    Streaming services on game consoles really aren't a big deal. Especially in regards to Youtube where the mast majority of smartphones have it preinstalled. Ten years ago it would have been huge but not so much now. Voice chat is a different kettle of fish and actually has a tangible use case, I don't think the comparison you're trying to make is actually comparable.

    Now where's Hulu, Netflix, ESPN, Crunchyroll, FOX, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, DisneyFlix, Facebook, MySpace (if they even make apps for consoles anymore or if they even did so in the first place), Twitter, Instagram, Twitch, Pinterest, and every other service that's on the 360/PS3/PS4/XBOne/Wii U/Wii/Phone/Tablet/PC/any other device that's still updated to this day!?

    The only thing I'm curious about is: Why would you film in portrait mode?

    2 services that have were added to game consoles to enhance user experience neither are needed for gaming online or otherwise and both require a app installed on an extra device (well youtube did) the fact that i own a phone should not mean that its 4 inch screen is ideal for watching anything nor is it convenient to need to pack away my console because i decided to watch a video which my console should be able to play . . . long story short if a product requires me to buy other products to enjoy then why buy it . . . but you seem to not like the comparison so lets say this . . . should phones remove the clock function because it was never needed due to the huge amount of clocks in homes/around town . . . or why make switch dont we all have portable phones so we can stop there as they play games . . . its silly to have a smart tv as my phone is already smart . . . it simply sounds silly to call an enhancement redundant

    Hey guys, after I got the NSP I've been trying to reverse-engineer some of the code, and I've found out that the code calls account services, and it seems to try to ensure that the Switch's user has a valid NNID, or if it can connect to Nintendo Services. People are reporting that it fails under 90dns or similar things...
    (what a pity, I'm banned too...)

    I wanted to get the video out asap before people start shoving out bs. I do think I could of filmed it in landscape but it's not that big of a deal for a 15 second video

    True but there may be a bypass or even a YouTube Vanced port for the switch.
